In order to fulfill the desire of A.C Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada, the founder acharya of ISKCON, the Namahatta preaching department of Sri Sri Krishna Balaram Mandir, Vrindavan, facilitates numerous preaching programs like Hari Naam Sankirtan, House Programs, Jail Preaching, Rath Yatra, Book distribution, Vraj village preaching, Youth & College preaching, performance of last rites, Congregational Development and many other such programs to preach and propagate the movement of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.
Recently, the Namahatta team conducted a Bhagavad-gita distribution and Sankirtan program for students of Mangalayatan University, situated 40 km away from Vrindavan. The university program lasted for two hours, which included Harinam and a discourse on the teachings of the Srimad Bhagavad Gita. H.G. Bimal Krishna Prabhu delivered an inspiring lecture on the essence of the Srimad Bhagavad Gita and moral values in life. Explaining the importance of this most holy literature, spoken by Sri Krishna himself, he encouraged and inspired the assembles audience to read Srimad Bhagavad Gita. The lecture, being based on the Gita’s teachings about how to lead one’s life in a pious and spiritual way, was very helpful for the students as it gave insights into ways of fighting daily life problems like anxiety, depression, failure and self-doubt in a student’s life.
After the lecture around 400 “Bhagavad-gita As It Is” were distributed freely to the students and the staff of the University. At the end, melodious ecstatic Kirtan was performed by all the devotees headed by H.G Rakhal Raja Prabhu. Other devotees of the preaching team, namely Rupasresta prabhu, Shyamal prabhu, and six other devotees encouraged the students to dance and participate in the kirtan.
Srila Prabhupada wanted the youth to take up Krishna consciousness very seriously in their lives and help to spread it all over the world, thereby fulfilling the desire of Lord
Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, it is this desire of theirs that is the motivation behind the activities of the Namahatta department.
