Save Yamuna Campaign Reaches Worldwide Kirtan Mela In Germany

Two weeks ago at a Yamuna Ji presentation in Bhakti Yoga centre in Chemnitz a very nice devotee came forward to help in Yamuna Ji campaign. He works for the famous ” Frauenhofer Institute” in Germany. His work allows him to deal with many companies and governments. He travels many times a month to India. His main field of work right now is “Waste Water Management for Kaveri River” in India. He would like to meet Brajraj Sharan Maharaja in Vrindavan this Kartik month to see what can be done in regard to Yamuna Ji. In first week of September the first Worldwide Kirtan Mela was launched near the city of Chemnitz in Germany. There about 700 – 1000 devotees from aproximately 30 countries were performing a Nam Sankirtan Yajna while chanting for 12 hours a day for 5 days. This Kirtan Mela was inspired by the sages of Naimisaranya who came together 5000 years ago to perform a thousand-year yajna for the upliftment of the earth and to counteract the evil effects of Kali-yuga. Only 500 years ago Caitanya Mahaprabhu appeared to spread congregational chanting of the Lord’s holy names. He predicted that the time would come when the holy names would be sung in every town and village as the chanting of the Holy Names is the prescribed yajna forthis age. In the late ’60s His Divine Grace A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada arrived in the West to fulfill this desire in grand style. Thus the kirtan movement was born and the divine vibrations of the holy names now resound around the world. Now in 2011 this first Kirtan...

‘Yamuna – Back to Braj’ Campaign Startles Mumbai

I came Bombay in the morning with Sanjeev Jindal to attend ISKCON Juhu temple ‘Save Yamuna Programs’. Temple president ‘Braj Hari Prabhu’ arranged everything with the weeping heart for Yamuna Ji. Since morning to evening I addressed 4 huge meetings in Juhu ISKCON temple in front of thousands of devotees. Many many devotees are attached with this issue now ‘by heart’. Very successful it was. All the devotees joined ‘Save Yamuna Nagar Sankeertan’ from Juhu temple to Juhu temple via Juhu beach. It took almost 1 hour. Very much inspiring it was. So many devotees from India and abroad attended this protest (Program) very enthusiastically. Many popular personalities also came as special guests. Soordas Prabhu compared very nicely. First of all Anuradha Paudwal had spoken very specific and to the point. She said, ” we all are concerned with ‘Yamuna Maiya’. We are not talking about pollution of Yamuna because there is no pollution in Yamuna Ji, because there is NO YAMUNA AT ALL IN BRAJ VRINDAVAN !. There is only polluted drains coming from anywhere else. So please bring back our mother river Shri Yamuna JI to her own home ‘Braj-Vrindavan’.” Then one very popular writer Ram Govind (who wrote Ramayan & Mahabharat TV Serial) spoke that Shri Krishna also cleaned this river Yamuna by removing serpent ‘Kaliya’ but today a huge serpent ‘Kaliya’ entered again into the river. This river is poisoned again. We must come forward to do something to clean Yamuna Ji. Then I was requested to show the reality to everyone. Everybody was shocked after watching the current status of Yamuna Ji. Specially Pandit...
