As in previous years, this year on Monday February 17, 2013, the auspicious advent day of the most merciful Prabhu Sītānāth is celebrated on Makara Saptami day, so in front of Śrī-Śrī Rādhā Madan Gopāla, the beloved deity of Śrī-Śrī Sādhu Bābā, in Śrī Navadvīp Dhām's Rāmacandrapur district a great 5-day devotional festival will be held for His satisfaction, starting on Wednesday 13th February. Festival items will include Pārāyan, discussions on devotional scripture and Kīrtan.
Please bless us by attending this festival. This is not an invitation, it is an anxious cry by Prabhu Sītānātha's servants to have their sensually polluted consciousness lifted into absorption into bhakti rasa. Petitioner -
