ISKCON Punjabi Bagh witnessed celebrations to recognize the efforts of the congregation and the temple resident team in distributing Srila Prabhupada books during the Book Distribution marathon month. Like every year, the occasion was graced by the presence of HH Gopal Krishna Goswami Maharaja. Maharaja personally handed over certificates and trophies to all the top distributing teams and congratulated the entire temple community. This year was special as the devotees braved the COVID challenges to fulfil the most dear service of their beloved eternal spiritual master Srila Prabhupada.
In total, ISKCON Punjabi Bagh distributed more than 2.6 lac copies of Bhagavad Gita along with over 600 copies of Srimad Bhagawatam, ranking it amongst the top temples in the world in terms of book distribution. The morning program following this evening was equally eventful with Maharaja leading the Mangala Aarti, Guru Puja, Kirtan and the Bhagavatam class. The temple hall was packed for the first time since the lockdown, We at ISKCON Punjabi are deeply grateful to Maharaja for motivating and engaging us every year in this transcendental book distribution service to Srila Prabhupada
