Today is the shortest day in Navadvipa Mandala Parikrama – devotees left by boat at 5am from Mayapur to Koladvipa (navadvipa town).

Excerpts from Srila Prabhupada: I am very anxious to know weather we are going to have our Mayapur function? I want very much to hold this function this year with all of my students and I ask you to Kindly serve me by making this possible. It is a very important day and will be a great service to Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura. Please arrange for this programme.
Now in Mayapur there are two much important programs… The second important program is this distribution of Prasadam, without any discrimination, so that everyone will get equal portion, no matter how little or how much is there.
(Srila Prabhupada on Mayapur)
May the blessings of Sri Mahaprabhu and the mercy for serving the Dham be with you always.
