‘When the Lord decides to shower His grace, He is indeed lavish!’
In Kaliyuga, Harināma-Saṅkīrtana alone is equal to performing yajna’s and is enough to grant salvation to human beings. Keeping this in view, the first Akaṇḍa Harināma-Saṅkīrtana of ISKCON Dhoolpet temple was specially arranged from 10 am IST to 10 pm IST on 26th of January 2020.
The entire 12-hour span was divided into one-hour slots and a mixture of senior devotees and local devotees HG Varada Krishna Pr, HG Srivas Rasabihari Pr, etc sung the Harināma very enthusiastically.
Continuous Harināma sankirtan made the place vibrate with devotion. The devotional Harināma tunes took one into a serene mood asking for more.
Many localities took part and led the chant. There were around 400 devotees who sang with real feeling voices full of devotion.
It is said in Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 12.3.52
kṛte yad dhyāyato viṣṇuṁ tretāyāṁ yajato makhaiḥ
dvāpare paricaryāyāṁ kalau tad dhari-kīrtanāt
Whatever result was obtained,
in Satya-yuga by meditating on Viṣṇu,
in Tretā-yuga by performing sacrifices,
in Dvāpara-yuga by serving the Lord’s lotus feet can be obtained in Kali-yuga simply by chanting the Hare Kṛṣṇa mahā-mantra.
The entire event was planned and coordinated meticulously by ISKCON Dhoolpet Manager Santosh.
