Devotees from Hare Krishna Village recently went for a village sankirtan trip in nearby villages of Udaipur viz. Kejad and Nimuch last weekend.
Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu wanted His followers to move all over the world to preach in every town and village. In the Caitanya-sampradāya those who strictly follow the principles of Lord Caitanya must travel all over the world to preach the message of Lord Caitanya, which is the same as preaching the words of Krishna—Bhagavad Gita—and Srimad Bhagavatam.
So on last weekend on the special request of some devotees from above mentioned villages, a team of 21 devotees comprising of Brahmacaris, Varnashrama college boys and students went on to distribute the mercy of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu and Srila Prabhupada.
Devotees set out for the trip on 24th night via train and reached our destination in day time next day. In the evening devotees held street sankirtan in Kejad and hundreds of people joined us .Devotees also went to a very ancient Lord Vishnu temple which was built in the 16th century. The villagers including the children enjoyed taking part in the sankirtan procession. Later in the evening, a lecture was organized, in which lots of people gathered to listen and gain knowledge from Srimad Bhagavatam and Bhagavad Gita As It Is.
Next day, devotees went to a neighboring village, Nimuch. Again there was a mass scale sankirtan in that village . Devotees were very happily dancing and chanting engaging all the villagers in this process. After sankirtan, a small talk was given on the importance of chanting the holy name in the age of kali-yuga and thereafter prasadam was distributed. Although the schedule was quite packed-up but devotees felt very enthusiastic.
In the afternoon devotees went to take bath in nearby lake where they got refreshed and were again ready for next program. After visiting some other local temples and spots, devotees again reached Kejad village for the evening lecture. Around 90 transcendental books of Srila Prabhupada were distributed in this trip.
After successful completion of the lecture devotees took prasadam and that was end of our two-day sankirtan trip. Devotees then went to Udaipur to catch their train for Jaipur memorizing the sankirtans snaps in their hearts and minds.
