Maha-Mantra Week! September 5th to 15th

1:50:00 AM By Hina S

When His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada stepped off the ship Jaladutta and arrived in Boston back in 1965, he bore just one desire in his heart: to share the impeccable glories of the Hare Krishna Maha-Mantra all over the world.

Within a span of just over a decade, he established hundreds of temples and inspired thousands. Today, he is celebrated in over 400 ISKCON centres for sharing the imports of the pristine Vedic knowledge!

This year from Sep 5th-15th, ISKCON centres all over the world will commemorate the arrival of Srila Prabhupada to the West; here in Toronto, we have 10 days of various activities lined up for you. Also known as the 'World Holy Name Week', the intention of this festival is to appreciate and share what Prabhupada has given us and spread the (Holy) word! We encourage you to make the most of this by participating in multitude of ways; please read on for details.
