Dear Readers,

Please accept my respectful obeisances.  All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

It is with great pleasure that we announce the launching of our Johannesburg preaching centre project, Vedic City (ISKCON Johannesburg North, Founder Acharya His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada), on this the auspicious occasion of Sri Krishna Janmasthami, Sunday 24 August 2008.

The GAD (Gauteng Administrative Directorate) endorsed the project on the 27th May Instant.  Exciting developments for the project include a Prabhupada Museum and Reading Room; Pancha-Tattva Temple Room; weekly programmes; harinamas; book distribution; Food For Life; and Academy for Spiritual Understanding.

We humbly request the devotees’ blessings for the project – so we can make a pleasing offering to Srila Prabhupada and Nitai-Gaura Hari.

Your servant,

Mukunda Charan das (Johannesburg, South Africa)
