Last year’s Japa Retreat in Radhadesh was wonderfully inspiring. The devotees felt such enthusiasm about their breakthrough experiences that we immediately decided to have Japa Retreat Level 2 in 2009. Japa retreats are now being conducted in all parts of the world and are becoming more and more sought after by devotees and friends of Lord Krishna.
For the past 35 years I’ve been cooking prasadam in ISKCON kitchens, including the well-known Kalachandji’s Restaurant in Dallas, Texas started in 1982, and now in Gainesville, Florida, home of the huge daily Krishna Lunch program at the University of Florida serving 5,000 plates a week. After seeing prasadam touch so many lives, I have resolved to compile a book entitled The Glories of Krishna Prasadam to disseminate such prasadam pastimes along with other important related topics.
The organizers are looking for serious presenters to participate in the event. We want and welcome diversity to compliment the many areas of Krishna Consciousness that are available these days. If you are personally interested or can point the way to someone that might be, please contact Malati devi: firstname.lastname@example.org 304-845-95918
