Uniten Preaching update

BY RASIKA MURARI DASA

August 22, KUALA LUMPUR (WED) – After meeting at the resident of Dr. Srivas pr in Balakong, we car pooled to Universiti Tenaga Nasional (Uniten). By the time we arrived, there were some 70 students very eagerly aiting for the show to begin. The boys (Prajindra and Prabhu) were still very busy with their final arrangement. They were constantly moving about letting up the sound system, projector, screen, lighting and etc.

After about half an hour, Hemalan, took the microphone and started the announcement, introducing the speaker, HG Vishnu Caitanya pr. and the evening’s itineraries. By this time there were about 120 students, lecturers and guests in the auditorium.

Then the show began with very sweet bhajan and chanting of Hare Krishna Maha Mantra. Since, this is their fourth session and many of our boys are kind of active in the Indian Society of Uniten, they have been entrusted and given a free hand in managing the entire show. Factually, everyone enjoyed the short but sweet kirtan, including the chief guest Ms. Vathana (Secretary) and Mr. Siva (lecturer).

At about, 8.45pm, HG Vishnu Caitanya pr. took the center stage and made everyone bolted down to their seat with his mesmerizing presentation on the topic of Bhagavad Gita the jewel of the scriptures. Giving many practical analogies, cracking jokes, tactfully relating songs lyrics with life’s impediments and seriously pointing out the flaws in modern education and civilization, he captured the trust of the audience and promptly directed them to the supreme instruction for the age of the Kali, “Kalau tad Hari Kirtanat.”He then led the chanting of the Hare Krishna Maha Mantra with great response from the students and ended his an hour and half lively presentation. The organizers are planning for a six session Bhagavad Gita classes as a continuity measures and many have agreed to participate. We have also extended our invitation to them to attend the Sri Krishna Janmasthami Celebration in SJMKL. (more…)

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! We danced, chanted and sang delightfully in kirtan, forgetting our whole self. (more…)
