Gaura Purnima at Karuna Bhavan, ISKCON, Scotland

Pictures speak more than words:

Harinama Sankirtan at Princes Street, Edinburgh on the eve of Gaura Purnima

Gaura Purnima festival at Karuna Bhavan, Lesmahagow Temple:

I already mentioned about the non-stop kirtan that takes place in this temple. Ending with fireworks and more than ten varieties of anukalpa prasada, the festival was memorable. One can't but feel good about the grave and service oriented nature of the devotees there. I believe, if they carry on with the same gravity in glorifying the Holy name and Srila Prabhupada, soon Sri Khoda Nitai and Mayapur Sashi kindly residing at Karuna Bhavan will attract thousands of souls, making it the biggest temple in Europe. 

If the ISKCON temples all around the world simply concentrate in Harinama, books and  prasadam distribution, Lord Krishna and Srila Prabhupada will be pleased and send favourable souls to them to preach to. When Krishna is pleased Sri Lakshmi, by default, will reside there forever.
