WORLD HOLY NAME WEEK
World Holy Name Week ki Jai!
Like every year, this year too we are going to celebrate the World Holy Name Week. This year it starts from the 9th of September and will go on till the 17th of September. Actually, 17th September is the day Srila Prabhupada arrived in America. That’s why this particular day is very special for all of us. The Holy Name Week was started in 1996, the year we celebrated Srila Prabhupada’s centennial. As you all know the Holy Name is the only way for spiritual progress in the age of Kali.
harer näma harer näma harer nämaiva kevalam
kalau nästy eva nästy eva nästy eva gatir anyathä
Srila Prabhupada went to America and how did he start the movement? He just started the movement by chanting. He was alone and just went out to Tompkins Square park and started to chant, then people started to respond and this is how this movement actually started.
Srila Prabhupada expanded it volcaniosly and he had already spread it all over the world, in almost all the major cities. Now it is expanding . Actually, billions of people have responded to the call of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and congregational chanting.
So please participate in this World Holy Name Week starting from 9th September and will go on till 17th September. Chant, dance,rejoice andrepeat the Holy name, that’s all.
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare Hare Ram Hare Ram Ram Ram Hare Hare
All we have to do is just repeat it congregationally. This sound vibration is going to defeat the evil influence of the age of Kali and establish the spiritual world in this material nature.
World Holy Name Week ki Jai.
