On July 18th, ISKCON Malaysia released stamps to commemorate the arrival of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada in Malaysia fifty years back in 1971 from the 3rd to the 8th of May. A private stamp was released, under the Setemku service by Post Malaysia. It is not an official stamp released by the Government of Malaysia for public usage.
During his stay in the country, Srila Prabhupada traveled from Kuala Lumpur to Teluk Intan, Ipoh, and Penang. As he had been doing in other parts of the world, he did not fail to inspire people with the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita. His life has been dedicated to spreading the message of the Bhagavad Gita in every nook and corner of the world. This year marks the 50th Anniversary of Srila Prabhupada’s visit to Malaysia.
This 50th Anniversary event was celebrated online on July 18, 2021. Along with the zonal leaders and global devotee family, the GBCs of ISKCON Malaysia, Jayapataka Swami, and Bhanu Swami were present, along with Prabavisnu Prabhu.
The main attraction of this program was the release of commemorative stamps of Srila Prabhupada. This stamp was approved by the postal department of Malaysia. Besides the various other events, they auctioned ten such commemorative stamps of Srila Prabhupada at the end. During the event, they also announced that devotees across the globe can also buy these stamps.
To ensure smooth delivery, they have specified some guidelines. Orders have to be placed before 31st August 2021. One set includes 10 stamps will cost RM51 plus shipping charges.
