Srila Prabhupada evening lecture July 15, 1976, Gita nagari farm, Philadelphia
A beautiful Gaur Purnima festival was held on 2-3-18 in Nandgraam which is the first vedic Village of Gujarat, situated near Kevadia colony. Shri Shalagramji and Gaur Nitai were installed in Nandgraam under the guidance of HH Bhakti Vikas Swami Maharaj. Abhishekam and Mahaarti were done for All These Lordships, there was a sumptuous anukalpa prasadam for 300 Devotees coming from allover India who came to witness this wonderful vedic village. On this auspicious day 6000 books of" Premaavtar Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu" were ordered by devotees who attended this programme. Nandgraam is a worth seeing vedic village which was built 4 years back under the guidance of HH Bhakti Vikas Swami and leadership of HG Savyasachi Prabhu. This is a varnaashram farm community and there is a Gurukulam which is run under the leadership of HG Nartak Gaurang Prabhu.40 students are studying in this vedic Gurukulam, free of any charge. 20 families are living in this farm community. The main underlying cause behind this varnaashram farm community is to fulfill the dream of our Founder Acharya Srila Prabhupada to develop farm community to grow our own food and make our own cloth and have sufficient land and cows. This place is a wonderful place to revive our dormant spiritual instinct.
