His Holiness Lokanath Swami Maharaja led the kirtan for more than one hour. World Holy Name Day Posters and banners, and placards showing the Maha Mantra, and World Holy Name Day logo, as well as pictures of Srila Prabhupada and Sri Sri Gaura Nitai made the event colorful. A powerful sound system transmitted the transcendental sound vibrations.

Srila Prabhupada’s books were distributed. 3000 special pamphlets describing the glories of chanting Hare Krishna. 2000 prasadam packets were distributed.
