All glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga

Vaisnava Festival in Moscow.
Day 6. Public Program

May 3, 2006

On Wednesday in the Moscow House of Artist was held a public program. Sripad B.B. Avadhut Maharaj with the help of the devotees (mainly: Madhava Krishna Prabhu Brahmachari, Raseshwari Devi Dasi and Nalina Nayana Devi Dasi) organized this wonderful program devoted to the evolution of consciousness.

Various scholars, scientists, representatives of different religious movements attended the meeting and had an opportunity to make a speech on the stage. And with the view of an unobtrusive preaching, Sripad Goswami Maharaj was introduced as one of the participators.

Sripad Goswami Maharaj made a wonderful speech acquainting the guests with the basis of subjective evolution of consciousness and then throughout the evening he had been signing the book "Subjective Evolution of Consciousness" and talking to the guests, answering questions, dispelling their doubts. He also sang vandnam at the stage and, as Sripad Madhav Maharaj later pointed out, the guest were "amazed and enchanted by the power of transcendental prayers."

The program was very successful, a lot of people were interested to hear Sripad Goswami Maharaj and get the book. Literally there was a long queue to the place where Maharaj talked to the guests and distributed the books. The small cosy pavilion where Sripad Goswami Maharaj was located couldn't accommodate all the interested guests.

Sripad Avadhut Maharaj was busy all the program, talking to people, arranging everything, taking care that everything was done appropriately, announcing the artists and scholars, etc., etc.

In the meanwhile Sripad Nyasi Maharaj and Sripad Bharati Maharaj gave an interview to a newspaper and talked to the guests. And Sripad Madhav Maharaj was also very busy with preaching to the guests, making contacts, etc.
