The Official Release of the India Government Minted Commemorative Prabhupada Coin by Shri Narendra Modi September 1, 2021
ISKCON Communications and the Srila Prabhupada 125 Committee are happy to announce that the Honourable Prime Minister of India Shri Narendra Modi Ji has kindly consented to officially inaugurate Srila Prabhupada’s 125th Appearance Anniversary celebrations, and also released the commemorative Prabhupada coin on September 1st, 2021 at 4:30 PM.
Dear Bhakti Charu Swami, Pamho. AgtSP. Your Sri Sri Radha Mohan temple is so examplary in hospitality. In your temple it feels that Their Lordships are in control. Some devotees have been asked to be in on Their behalf, and even then, they and all the others, under their leadership, are in the mood of serving, caring and pleasing the senior devotees. I wish that this mood would spread all over ISKCON
What can I say? It is clear that all the Ujjain team imbibe the mood of their leader — Bhakti Charu Maharaja — who by all accounts is the hostess with the mostess! Everything was as close to perfect as it could be and never did I find myself wanting for anything. GBC meetings aren’t the easiest service but the Ujjain team made them as easy as they possibly could be, I was sad to leave. My obeisances and appreciation to all the Ujjain team.
No doubt the warm, friendly, and very comfortable atmosphere served to create the needed atmosphere for success. I know that my mind was peaceful and my heart touched by your kindness and your attention to every detail to make us feel at home. They have a saying in the USA: “The fruit does not fall far from the tree.” Because you are such an attentive servant of the Vaisnavas, your disciples emanate the same mood. Certainly Krishna saw their surrender and enthusiasm and will bless them.
I pray I will remember the quality and selflessness of their care. It is a standard I hope I can learn to emulate. It was truly an environment of devotee care I’ve never experienced before. If we (starting with me) cared for others they way the devotees do in Ujjain, people worldwide would be flooding our temples begging to understand the secret of our formula for such love. All glories to the devotees of Ujjain ISKCON.
