Earning 2 Million in 24 Hours

Moderator's Note: Devotees in Minneapolis had done an amazing service of chanting the holy names non-stop for 24 hours over the weekend on the occasion of Gita Jayanti and our Guru Maharaj H H Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj's Vyasa Puja that happened yesterday. Below are two astounding accounts of it from H G Manohar Krishna Prabhu and H G Atma Prasad Krishna Prabhu that makes us enthused beyond limits.

Maharaj, a few days ago, mentioned in the class that devotees should always carry two things with them. One is the Japa beads and the other is a cleaning cloth/broom. Japa should always be chanted to keep our inside clean. And we should also look to it that wherever we are, the surroundings should be immaculately clean. Krishna only stays in a place where it is clean. Hoping that these kind of inspiring accounts will enthuse devotees all over the world to get immersed in the nectarean sound vibration of holy names. This will please Krishna beyond limits and there is nothing else to be achieved for us if Krishna is pleased. All glories to the wonderful devotees who had taken this marvellous effort to please our Guru Maharaj and our Lord Sri Krishna.

Hare Krishna Dear Devotees,
Please accept my humble obeisances ! All Glories to Srila Prabhupada and Gurudeva!

On the occasion of Gita Jayanti as an offering to the lotus feet of the our beloved Gurudeva H H Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj, Yadushreshta Krishna prabhu and Jagan Mohini mathaji had organized a nice 24 hour satsang program, from 6 pm last Friday, 01 Dec 2006, wherein devotees recited the entire Srimad Bhagavad Gita followed by chanting Mahamantra rest of the 24 hours. Devotees chanted a total of 1160 rounds in a 24 hour period. Some of the new congregational members expressed that they chanted more rounds during this 24 hour program than they they had ever chanted their whole life.

Also, devotees of Minneapolis are committing to chant 100,000 rounds as an offering to the Rajkot temple and Gurudeva in the next few months.

Humbly yours in the service of Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudeva,

Hare Krishna Everyone,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudeva.

I just wanted to share the wonderful results of the chanting program that happened this weekend and glorify those involved.

It was a truly wonderful experience that was possible only by the tireless efforts of Yadu Shresta Prabhu and Jagan Mohini Mataji. They hosted, cooked for a lot of devotees FOUR TIMES, and chanted a combined total of 234 rounds! Truly amazing.

I'll summarize the program and then let the numbers to the glorification. First the devotees chanted the whole Bhagavad-Gita from 7 to 9:30 on Friday night and this was immediately followed by continuous chanting until 6 pm on Saturday.

Are you ready for the numbers?

We chanted... 1,160 rounds of japa total. Again truly amazing. This translates in to 2,004,480 names of Krishna. 2 Million names in 24 hours!

There were at least 4 devotees who chanted more than 100 rounds in 24 hours!

There were also many who chanted between 50 - 100 rounds. Actually I think all involved reached new heights in their chanting. The two high scorers were Yadu Shresta Prabhu with 149 rounds and another devotee who chanted 152 rounds.

Well, all of us hope that this is not the last of such programs and we hope next time more devotees can participate.

Yours in service of Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudev,
Atma Prasada Krishna das
