Jayapataka Swami: We observe only Vyasa puja normally for one day that is on the day after Janamastami. However, since in Mayapur we have a very big community, different parts of the community, informally, without fasting or anything, they observe the opportunity before the Vyasa puja, after the Balarama Purnima to observe some type of Vyasa puja that means, they will offer some homages, maybe a drama, and give a prasadam snack to the devotees. So this is like six days of feasting and one day of fasting Ha! So that everyone gets an opportunity to say something for Srila Prabhupada.
