First Varsity Convention

BY UNITEN UNDERGRADUATE ANUSHA

Jul 16, KUALA LUMPUR (MON)

What kept us gazing back at the memories of ISKCON National Varsity Summit 2006, the first of its kind? To sum it up – it was MAGNIFICENT and GREAT.

The presence of the Supreme Lordships, Sri Sri Gaura Nitai, helped to bless and purify the venue that manifested into a joyful and fulfilling three-day at Port Dickson golf and Country Club from July 14 th till 16 th.

All of us have probably stumbled upon the story about the Genie in the bottle that would grant the person who opened it three wishes. Similarly, Krishna granted all our wishes at the convention. There was jubilant and ecstatic kirtan that persisted during arati – there were thump of the BONGO, the cobbler of the MRDANGA, the tolling of the KARTAL and the beat of the gong that kept us upbeat!

KL Vaishnava Sammelan 2

BY JEYANTHY PILLAI 

Jul 9, PORT DICKSON, MALAYSIA (MON)

It was a sweet surprise when I read my e-mail that the 2nd Kuala Lumpur Vaishnava Sammelan (KLVS 2) convention was about to take place from July 7th – 9th 2006. I remember the first Kuala Lumpur convention in 2003, it was a small yet a cosy one since we got so much association with the devotees and Maharajs who were there. It was just exclusive for the Klang Valley devotees. Something that we cherished for long.

So, I was very eager to attend this one and I was the first to sign up. Also, this was the easiest way we could get non-devotees to catch a glimpse of what Krishna Consciousness is all about. The other thing that I like about the Sammelan is that you don’t have to worry about cooking and food while you are having a holiday.

My children were excited as well, counting the days to the actual convention. I managed to convince my husband, Vijay to come along as well. I have been depriving all of them of a holiday for so long. (more…)
