Saturday Evening Program on Apr 29
Last Saturday, on the 29th of April, Hṛṣīkeśa Prabhu and our humble self have conducted the weekend program at the Chennai Hanumān temple that we mentioned in an earlier post. About 100 people attended including many IIT (Indian Institute of Technology, a prestigious technological university) students and were very much inspired by the spiritual program which included kīrtana, Bhagavad-gītā class and prasādam.
In the Bhagavad-gītā lecture, we were highlighting the importance of the morning program — starting with the maṅgala-ārati at 4:30am, then japa (chanting on the rosary), guru pūjā, Bhāgavatam class and prasādam — in order to rise to the mode of goodness and execute devotional service steadily and peacefully. Taking the instruction seriously, a considerable number of them attended the morning program the next day and absolutely relished it!

The people attending the weekend programs in the Chennai Hanumān temple are a serious lot and have immense potential to become good Vaiṣṇavas.
