Apr 26, 2020 — SRIDHAM MAYAPUR (SUN) —

For the pleasure of Sri Sri Radha Madhava, Guru and Gauranga we are happy to announce that Bhaktivedanta Gita Academy (otherwise known as the Gita Study Course in Mayapur) conducted a massive Japathon inviting all its devotees under the guidance of HH Bhakti Vijaya Bhagavat Swami (Head, Sankirtana Department, Mayapur) and HG Lakshmi Govinda das (Head, Bhaktivedanta Gita Academy).

The devotees of the Gita Academy, which has got various Pathachakras (community gatherings) spread over West Bengal, took a sankalpa (pledge) on the 17th April 2020 to chant 64 rounds japa (which is equivalent to 1 Lakh names of the Lord) each to commemorate the Auspicious Occasion of Varuthini Ekadasi by praying for the safety, betterment, and healing of the society from the World Crisis of COVID-19.

According to the last report of 18th April, the total numbers who successfully completed the japa of 64 rounds were 1,441 devotees! Inspired by this initiative, devotees from across the world participated on the same day, from various major locations like Bangladesh, Middle East countries, so on and so forth, numbering in 1,178 devotees who chanted 64 rounds.

What really encouraged us was that the non-devotees from various locations also participated with the minimal rounds for the good cause too. We are further increasing the spreading of the chanting of the Holy Names to every town and village, organizing such events inspiring every human to protect the society as well as the soul!

Your Servant,
In Service of God and Mankind,
