Hundreds begin New Year with Sri Sri Radha Rasabihari & His devotees
Over 800 persons chose to make an auspicious start to 2012 by bringing in the New Year with ISKCON Juhu’s Transcendental New Year Party. The event started early at 7pm (to prevent stagnant new years eve traffic from foiling plans) with spiritual theme games in the sprawling lawn at Hare Krishna land. Sumptuous dinner was served so that people could settle down for Q-ousie in the Mandapam hall thereafter.
Q-ousie, a game specially designed for the event, was a combination of Quiz and Housie, keeping the audience involved and anxious with many prizes to be won. “Q-ousie helped me polish up my spiritual GK in the most innovative and enjoyable way” is what one of the guests had to say. Bhima Das, BBT Trustee and Temple Council Member, gave an inspiring talk on New Year resolutions. The entertainment continued with a fusion dance and skit and the grand finale into 2012 with rocking kirtan by Go-pals, a beat group that got the audience dancing and singing to the Lords holy names set to foot tapping music. Harinam kirtan continued within the temple complex after midnight and several devotees continued with an all night kirtan until Mangal-arti on Jan 1- an auspicious start to 2012.
