Departing from Calgary on the morning of Sunday, April 19th we flew to Vancouver, Canada, one of the country’s largest devotee congregations, and had lunch at the home of Harirani dasi.
We quickly made our way to the temple, home of beautiful Sri Sri Radha Madan Mohan, Gaur Nitai and Jagannatha, Baladeva and Subhadra. We set up our displays and table, and during the arati the Padukas and Sitari were bathed and adorned with flowers. About 200 devotees had come and Manu das, the temple president, along with Sri Govinda, the former temple president, introduced the TOVP Team. Radha Jivan and Jananivas prabhus spoke about the TOVP and the pledges started to come in. $265,000 was pledged that evening and prasadam was served. We were scheduled to stay in Vancouver for the entire week and also pay a visit to Saranagati, a devotee farm community further North. We were expecting more pledges from there and at other programs during the rest of the week.
