Dear Devotees,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

We hope that you are happily situated in Krishna consciousness.

We are delighted to invite you to ‘Srila Prabhupada Memorial Festival, 72nd Vyasa Puja of His Holiness Bhakti Charu Swami Maharaja & ISKCON Ujjain Global Retreat 2017’ from 12th to 18th September 2017.

17th September is the day when Srila Prabhupada arrived in America to spread Krishna Consciousness throughout the world, and H.H. Bhakti Charu Swami Maharaja honours Srila Prabhupada on this date, whilst also allowing devotees to celebrate Maharaja’s own birthday. We are expecting hundreds of devotees and we will be putting up a large tent for the Festival.

Please note: This retreat is in lieu of the regular December retreat, therefore there will be no December retreat in Ujjain this year.

Please share this with other devotees who may be interested in attending.

We are very much looking forward to serving you at the Festival.
