Journey to the West

People never tire of  hearing about bold adventures and journeys.  There’s the Pandava’s pilgrimage during their exile, the story of the Odyssey, the Wizard of Oz, Lord of the Rings,  and even Jack Kerouac’s On The Road.  This entire year marks the  50th anniversary of Srila Prabhupada’s  journey to the West at the advanced age of 70.  How he hitched a ride on a freighter. How he brought with him the Mahamantra and the Srimad Bhagavatam.  And how he  came to fulfill a 500 year old prophecy.  So we have an opportunity to captivate listeners with this remarkable story. I’ve put a presentation together for myself to present to visitors here and to take to colleges and  venues in the tri-state area around New Vrindavan. I request everyone to take special advantage of  2015 to share Prabhupada’s story.
