Dear Sripad Bhakti Kanan Giri Maharaja,
Please accept our humble obeisances on this most auspicious day of your appearance in this world.
Rather than any fasting, I will be more pleased if sumptuous prasadam is made available for distribution to all my disciples and friends beginning from eight o’clock in the morning. As told to me by Srila Govinda Maharaja, this was the ideal shown by Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakura when celebrating the appearance days of Srila Bhakti Vinoda Thakura. I will be very happy if my disciples and friends follow the same.—Swami B.K. Giri
We liked this idea very much and followed it as much as possible by us. See below.
Srimati Lilavati Devi made the rice (a mix of 3 types), dahl, and chutney and I made the subji and halavah.
All was made
