Srila Prabhupada’s Original Plan

Presentación de PowerPoint:

What Srila Prabhupada wanted? In 1953, while in Jhansi, Srila Prabhupada wrote a circular establishing the "League of Devotees” basing the program on the study and preaching of t he Gita:   "The matter is so important that it cannot be set aside to be managed by the Sadhus and Sannyasins only but it must be taken care of by all responsible men."   Although being the only ‘devotee ’ in his movement, yet he expected and encouraged the members of his congregation to preach Krishna consciousness. The m ain criteria to preach was “ to read the Bhagavad Gita regularly ”

How did Srila Prabhupada want to implement his plan? “If you cannot go to others outside your hearth & home, you can do the preaching work amongst your family members only and in this meeting your other friends, neighbors & relatives also can join .”

Contd … “ Hold this meeting regularly for one hour in your home or any other suitable place near about your home, and chant the hymns or slokas of " Bhagavad-gita '' with reverence & devotion. If possible the reading of Bhagavad-gita may be preceded & followed by a congregation chanting of the holy name of God as mentioned below – Hare Krishna . . . Hare Hare . ”
