Dear Maharajas and Prabhus,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada, the ambassador of the holy name.

These are the new ISKCON World Holy Name Day Posters designed by the World Holy Name Day International team deputed by the GBC.

You can download and print these FREE high resolution versions at A3 size.

Monday, September 17, 2007 (Srila Prabhupada’s Arrival in the USA) World Holy Name Day Poster (Global)

Please visit this link for the posters.

Saturday, September 22, 2007 World Holy Name Day Poster (For North America and others who prefer this day)

Please Note: The posters are now in A3 size. In case devotees want to print on A4 size, they can do so easily. If devotees want, they can open the jpg file in Photoshop and type the time & place, before they print for themselves.

Potential events include:

. Massive Harinama sankirtan parties on the streets

. Twenty four hour kirtans in the temples

. Public Festivals and Stage Programs

. Seminars, lectures, dramas, and skits glorifying the holy name.

. Interfaith gatherings to glorify the holy name.

. Special chanting events for groups within ISKCON like youth, women, and children.

. This world holy name day event is an opportunity to glorify Srila Prabhupada, who is delivering the world by giving the gift of the holy name.

. Don’t forget prasadam!

This year September 17 falls on Monday. Centers can also have events and festivals on the weekends before or after WHN Day in order to maximize participation. The North American devotees have decided to hold their main celebration on Saturday Sept. 22nd this year, and we have made a special poster to accommodate them.

If you choose to celebrate WHN Day on additional days, we encourage you to also do something to observe World Holy Name Day on September 17, as this is the date that Srila Prabhupada arrived in the USA. Even encouraging the Bhagavatam Class speaker to address the subject of the holy name and Srila Prabhupada’s contributions to spreading the holy name would be helpful for promoting a cohesive unified global consciousness.

We want to take this opportunity, each year, to glorify Srila Prabhupada as the divinely empowered ambassador of the holy name.

Please send us reports of both your preparations and your successful WHN Day festivities. We need to make a report to the GBC and devotee community and would love to include your written reports, photos, audio and even video files. Send us your ideas, planning and strategies so that we can share them with others. Any other words of inspiration you can provide would also be greatly appreciated.

Hare Krishna!

Your servants in the service of the holy name and Srila Prabhupada,

Global World Holy Name Day Co-ordination team:

H.H. Lokanath Swami:

H.H. Janananda Goswami:

H.G. Eklavya Prabhu:

P. S. Here is the 2006 GBC resolution:

310. Annual World Holy Name Day

Therefore it is resolved:

That World Holy Name Day is made an annual program for all ISKCON centers. Different countries or continents may modify the name to suit their needs.

The observance of World Holy Name Day is to be held in connection with the anniversary observances of Srila Prabhupada’s arrival in the USA on Sept.
17, 1965, to coincide with, and commemorate, his delivering the gift of the holy name to the world.

The Global Coordination Team for World Holy Name Day shall be Lokanath Swami, Janananda Das, and Ekalavya Das.

For 2007 – 2008, a budget of Rs. 22,000/- is granted for promotion and other expenses.
