Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, who is Krishna Himself, started the Sankirtan movement, chanting of the holy name of Krishna in congregation.The name of Krishna and Krishna Himself are non-different. Krishna has invested all the powers in His holy name.
Congregational Chanting means coming together and chanting the holy name of Lord joyfully. This given the devotees the chance to associate with the devotees and this gives the joy and happiness to all the devotees and Lord Krishna.
Congregational chanting destroys all sinful reactions. It not only benefits the one who is chanting but all those moving as well as non-moving living entities.
All the grate Acharyas from all the sampradaya have given utmost importance to congregational chanting of the holy name.
To follow in the footstpes of these acharyas and to follow the instruction of Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, ISKCON Pandharpur also organizes the Harinam Sankirtan regularly through different areas of Pandharpur.We invite all the people to participate in this sankirtan. You can contact the temple to know the schedule of Sankirtan through your area.
Dear Vaishnavas and Vaishnavis,
Hare Krishna! Please accept my most humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
On behalf of our ISKCON GBC representative, His Holiness Lokanath Swami Maharaja and our ISKCON Pandharpur Community, we are appealing to you for your kind help. On Oct, 16th, Sri Pandharpur Dhama was flooded by the Chandrabhaga River. The damages are estimated at more than Rs 40,00,000 ($56000) We are not in a position to rebuild our losses. Sri Sri Radha Pandharinath’s crops and flowers growing in the fields are now submerged in water and gone. Their Lordships’ temple, goshala, ashram, guest house, Govinda’s Restaurant, offices, BBT Books, Gurukula, and Srila Prabhupada Ghata have all been severely damaged. We need your help.
