The Art of Spiritual Living in the Modern World - Lessons in Bhagavad Gita

- San Jose Program -

Held July 31st, 2005
Reported by Vrindavanesvari Devi Dasi.

San Jose is now the 10th largest city in the United States and home to a vibrant Indian community. Kum Kum Didi, manager of the San Jose Seva Ashram, saw this as an excellent preaching opportunity and organized a special program on July 31st — presided over by Sri Gauranga Sundar Mahaprabhu. The gathering was small yet sweet, with several sincere seekers eagerly listening to Sripad Janardan Maharaj and Pusta Krishna Prabhu discuss the nectar of the Bhagavad Gita. The teachings of this holy text, they said, are just as applicable today as they were 5,000 years ago. Braja Mohini Didi, Ramananda Prabhu and Nandarani Didi, along with many other devotees, assisted in hosting the event.
