Gaur Purnima Donation Request – 2020

Gaur Purnima Donation Request – 2020 (Please Share with your family and friends)

Dear Devotees and Well-Wishers,

All glories to Sri Brahman Madhva Gaudiya Saraswat Sampradaya (lineage). All glories to my beloved Grand Spiritual Master His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Goswami Thakur Prabhupada, and my beloved Spiritual Master His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Thakur.

I would like to share my concern about the upcoming Gaura-Purnima festival with you.  During the festival, we will be hosting mostly economically poor but spiritually sincere devotees. For the most part, these devotees are unable to afford the cost of their food and lodging during the ten days ( Monday 2nd March to Tuesday 10th 2020) of the festival.

We are expecting 2000+ (approximately) devotees as per last year’s gathering.

The price of all ingredients has increased significantly, more than anticipated, and therefore we are humbly begging for your help (financially, physically, and mentally) in order to organize the festival as we have organized it over the last few years.  I hope you do not hesitate to become involved, and will help us to collect ingredients or donate financially for the purchase of ingredients in order to serve the Vaishnavas who will attend the Gaura-Purnima festival this coming  March 2020.

In order to cater to an average of 2,000+ devotees daily, offering them Prasad three times each day, and for other arrangements for the festival, the following items will be needed:
