Nagar-sankirtana under the guidance of
Sripad Madhav Maharaj


These days Saint Petersburd celebrates its foundation day, so the streets were swarming with passers-by, and in the Catherine Garden, where as accustomed the devotees gather to start nagar-sankirtana, there was held an ice-cream feast. But by the mercy of Srila Gurudev the devotees did not yield to the temptation and proceeded with the planned sankirtana.

In the background can be seen the queues to the ice-cream degustation :)
Sripad Madhav Maharaj always impresses us by
the sincerity with which he sings kirtans
Sripad Avadhut Maharaj often says, "The worst reaction to
sankirtana party is indifference." So we are always
happy to see positive response on people's faces
Lila Rupa Devi Dasi (on the left with a heap of flyers in her hand)
takes an opportunity to explain to a passer-by the meaning of our
seemingly strange singing on the streets
Shyama Lima Devi Dasi also takes part in communicating with passers-by
We also met our fellows from the Iskcon
Our resilient Sahadev Prabhu from Smolensk
Ram Mohan Prabhu and Makhanchor Prabhu Brahmachari --
our joyful mridangists


Saturday Programme with
Sripad Madhav Maharaj


To the devotees' great inspiration and joy later in the afternoon Sripad Madhav Maharaj gave the Saturday class

Sripad Madhav Maharaj telling about the importance and gravity
of chanting the Holy Name
That forces people to reflect on this more serious...
After the class devotees happily hold evening arati for the Deities,
Sri Sri Guru-Gauranga-Radha-Madhavasundarjiu
Sripad Madhav Maharaj is always so humble,
he always let somebody else lead aratis:
this time it is Abhiram Prabhu :)

Jaya Sripad Bhakti Achintya Madhav Maharaj ki jaya!


Jaya Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj ki jaya!
