Hare Krishna dear Sangita devi dasi.
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
Please forgive us for not writing earlier to say thank you. With two broken computers and several 9 hour trips to Kolkata to see doctors and visit Chaitanya in the clinic, WIFI access has been a bit limited of late. From our hearts to yours we want to thank you deeply for your loving donation to help our family. We will never forget your kindness and generosity. And thank you also for your prayers and good wishes – they are so appreciated. You are a blessing in our lives. Since Hari-sauri Prabhu launched the campaign we have had 237 donors so the Pujaris in Mayapur have been a little overwhelmed with Pujas and able to do only 10 a day.
But just to let you know, yesterday on July 31st a Tulsi Puja to Lord Nrsimhadev was performed in Sri DhamA Mayapur in the name of you and all the Vaishnavas CARE donors with the Request “May they always be blessed and protected by the mercy of Lord Nrsimhadev”.
Sorry for the late notice. Hope to see you in Mayapur sometime soon.
With love and gratitude –
Radha Sundari and Advaita Chandra

*PLEASE SEE THE FOLLOWING UPDATE:
Back on the Preaching Battlefield!Ratha Yatra Comes to the HospitalOn July 22nd, Chaitanya’s 29th birthday, he organized for Lord Jagannatha to mount a small toy Rath cart his mother had bought for him, and do a tour of the men’s hospital ward for Ulta Rath.
Everyone in the ward participated happily in the small procession and festival, pulling the string “ropes” and chanting Jaya Jagannatha and Hare Krishna.
After the Ulta Ratha Yatra, Chaiti (looking a bit like a Hobbit these days – his parents are from New Zealand!), cut his cake (Mahaprasadam from Mayapur) and distributed it (along with some other packets of prasadam) to all of the 115 patients and staff.
All in all it was a wonderful event, and despite continuing to fight his demons, Chaiti is dedicated in engaging whoever he meets, wherever he is, in the Lord’s service.
Thank you so much!
Your servants at Vaishnavas CARE
