We’re slowly coming to an end with our 3-day Kadamba Kanana Swami Worldwide Sankirtan Marathon. Wednesday is still young in the western hemisphere and later during the night results are expected from Canada, Mexico and the US.
Europe and Africa started submitting their offerings as of now. The numbers are just great. Earlier today, Australia again kept their standards high for the third day in the row, thus expressing their love for Kadamba Kanana Swami and desire to please Srila Prabhupada.
Regarding Europe, news is that only a day after returning from India, sankirtan devotees went out in Budapest. Feeling sorry for not being able to contribute to the fullest of their resolute want, these humble and mature Vaisnava devotees of Radhe Syama will dedicate their Monthly Sankirtan Festival which has been scheduled for Saturday, February 27th, to our cause. The offering to Srila Prabhupada will take place the day after, on Sunday in (Grand) Budapest Temple where the most merciful Dayal Nitai Vijay Gauranga preside. This regular monthly event in Budapest usually sees between 50 and 70 full-time and part-time sankirtan devotees and members of congregation engaging in the activity that is most pleasing to Srila Prabhupada. May they have a fine weather and all the help from the above!
Another initiative that has come in response to our Marathon is self-imposed Vanipedia translation marathon. Devotees engaged in this important service of transcribing, translating and tagging Srila Prabhupada’s legacy, have decided to increase significantly their daily targets in order to satisfy His Divine Grace. The cause is, again, one with our KKS Worldwide Sankirtan Marathon.
And regarding our 3-day Marathon, however, the most important news is that the scores shall be offered to Srila Prabhupada tomorrow at ISKCON Durban, South Africa, where Kadamba Kanana Swami is currently located and undergoing severe medical treatment. After presenting the scores to His Divine Grace for his pleasure, devotees will humbly ask Prabhupada to petition Krsna who alone can remove the current health crisis and cancer issue from His dedicated servant, so that he can continue with his service in full capacity.
The ceremony shall begin after the morning class, around 8.40 AM and everybody can join via Mayapur TV, Durban channel. There will be kirtan afterwards. More news and the actual scores shall be published tomorrow during the day at Kadamba Kanana Swami-Blog.
Regarding time zone, Durban is GMT+2. That is 11 hours behind New Zealand, 9 hours behind Sydney and Melbourne, 3.5 hours behind India, 1 hour ahead of continental Europe, 2 hours ahead of the UK, and between 7 and 10 hours ahead of the Americas. Please tune in, if practical.
