More devotees preaching independently (Gauridasa pandit report)

Atmarama Prabhu from Spain just had a Great Kirtan Concert at the Siva Temple Farm in Grass Valley CaL. Tonight. He is traveling all over America and the world expenses paid by the Siva Temples. Atmarama told me that ISKCON has all the big gurus and they don't need him; so he does most of his events outside of ISKCON.

I heard about the concert earlier today when I was at a shopping center and I heard someone yell out HariboL! It was FB Friend Annabelle Younger who drove three hours from her home in Nevada with her mother and two kids. She was so happy to see devotees in such a small town. She kept saying, "See how Krsna works!" Sending us to meet her and all go to Atmarama's concert.

I was very impressed with his performance. It was all old school ISKCON Kirtans. He started out with Srila Prabhupada's Pranam Mantras, then the Pancatattva Mahamantra and the Hare Krsna Mahamantra quite a few times. He talked nicely and not too much. His classical guitar playing was exceptional adding interesting embellishments to the chanting. He started out playing the Harmonium and finished out with the guitar. By the time it ended many devotees were off their asanas dancing like jubilant peacocks. So it was a great way to end an already good/God day. Guru, Sastra and Sadhu's Ki Jaya! \o/
