Srila Prabhupada made history 50 years ago. It started with his sail on the Jaladuta. Today, fifty years later, ISKCON celebrated the Jaladuta Yatra in gratitude and honour of Srila Prabhupada.
Guru Maharaja, HH Radhanath Swami Maharaja, HH Bhakti Charu Swami Maharaj, HH Lokanath Swami Maharaja, HH Subhag Swami Maharaja, HH Bhakti Purushottama Swami, HG Praghosh Prabhu, the Governor of West Bengal, Kiran bedi were some of the dignitaries who attended.
The Netaji Indoor Stadium was packed with people who watched the program unveil in rapt attention. Guru Maharaja addressed the audience in the morning and gave a class in the evening. The feeling in the air was, “what would have become of us if Srila Prabhupada was not there?”
Today ISKCON set two Guiness Book of world records. One for the most nationalities in a Yoga session and one for the most number of nationalities in a choir. A truly international society. Truly beyond cast, creed and color, spreading happiness and Krishna’s love.
Guru Maharaja repeated quite often today that it was Srila Prabhupada who was predicted in the Chaitanya Mangala He was Krishna’s chosen one.
