All glories to Srila Prabhupada

As a response to the publicity for the “Gita Champions League (GCL)”
given by Dainik Bhaskar (the largest newspaper group whom ISKCON has
partnered with, for the GCL), His Grace Nitai Chandra Prabhu is conducting programs in various schools. Recently His Grace was invited by the management of “Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Vidya Mandir” (a school belonging to the “Art of Living” Foundation) to deliver a talk on Indian Values and Culture.
For those who may not be aware, “Art of Living” is a very prominent
“spiritual” (so to say) organization, mainly dealing with the impersonal aspect of God. Their philosophy deals with more of “enjoyment in the mode of goodness” kind of activities, but it is one of the most prominent “spiritual” organizations in the country.
Addressing over 150 students, His Grace Nitai Chandra Prabhu spoke about the
greatness of Indian Culture and Values, and the greatness of Bhagavad-Gita. The result of such a program was that over 50 students have registered for the GCL from this school (and more registrations are pouring in). This, in effect, means that over 50 students from this school (which teaches them about the impersonalistic aspect of God), have Srila Prabhupada’s Gita now, and they will be studying it for the competition to be held on 12th Feb, 2012.
You can find the news articles and photographs of this program and
similar programs held at other schools, facebook here: on.fb.me/GCL_Indore
12th Feb, 2012 is also the appearance day of HDG Srila Bhaktisiddhanta
Saraswati Thakur Goswami Maharaj. What a glorious offering at the
lotus feet of His Divine Grace, when over 1,500 students (till date, and still counting, with 1 more month to go) would be prepared for a competition
based on Bhagavad Gita – As It Is (the commentary on Bhagavad-Gita
written by his dear-most disciple)?
Lord Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s Sankirtan Movement Ki Jaya !
Jagat Guru Srila Prabhupada Ki Jaya !
