Jan 12, KUALA LUMPUR (SAT) The second session of 6- session workshop was held simultaneously with a new batch of students who attended the first session. Two rooms were used at Sri Jagannath Mandir, one for HG Visnu Caitanya Dasa who continued with the first group and another for HG Rasika Murari Dasa, who started off with a new batch of students.

This event saw the decline in the previous participants of the first batch as the date chosen for the workshop clashed with certain varsity activities. The turn out in total for the first group is 18. Ironically, the second group saw a tremendous welcome from Masterskill College. The total turn out for the second group is 42.

The agenda for the program began at 8.30am, where as soon as the charted bus arrived with the students, a brief introduction was given on the significance of the temples’ deities as this was the first time for some at SJMKL. The introduction led by HG Rasika Murari Das shed light into the historical background of Sri Sri Gaura Nitai, Jagannath, Baladev, Subadra and Radha Syamsundar. After that, the event coordinators led the eager students to the study room section of the temple for the workshop. They also sold and supplied Bhagavad Gita’s to those who wanted to purchase one.

At 9am, both classes began with potency. Breakfast provided by the temple was served at 10.30am. Students returned to the workshop at 11.00am. The session continued until 12.30pm when HG adjourned the workshop with an assignment for the participants. All participants later joined for the bhoga arthi ceremony. Lunch was served at 1pm. After lunch, students boarded the bus and returned home.

All in all, a total of 12 Bhagavad-Gita were sold. The workshop proved to be a success as students filled out feedback forms very positively. The next session of workshop is on 16 February 2008.
