Johannesburg: The shooting of an episode of the "Abhay Charan" television series is being done right now here in Johannesburg. One scene was that of a Harinam party dancing through town.

When the scene was done, the director and cameraman asked me to discretely walk up to a group of non-devotees who were discussing among themselves...

Book Distribution Nectar from Chowpatty

NECTAR – 1   Bhakta Prabhajan, part of H.H.

A Letter from Taiwan by Aisvarya Prabhu

Dear Distinguished Vaisnavas and Vaisnavis, Please accept my respectful obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada! All glories to your services!
