‘We are the world, we are the children, we are the ones to make a brighter day so let’s start giving’, is a jingle we have all grown up hearing. However, seldom do we all know how to bring this into practice. Engrossed in handling our own lives, we miss out on being able to contribute to the world in general, to make it a better place for today and tomorrow. Fortunatepeople.com is one such initiative taken up by ShaktyaveshaAvtaarPrabhu in promoting world peace through the perfect wishing wand, the Hare Krishna Mahamantra.
SrilaPrabhupada would often quote that the Hare Krishna Mahamantra is the only mantra that can grant us peace within and without. It is this mantra, which helps us connect with the Lord within us, who then reveals himself to us depending on our sincerity and surrender. So why not begin chanting the mantra with utmost dedication and encourage others to do so too?
In today’s new media dominant society, Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter and many more channels have become integral part of our lives. SrilaPrabhupada encouraged us to use everything in Krishna’s service, and what greater service can we render than encouraging people to chant the Mahamantra? Probably none.
The fortunatepeople.com website is where every visitor is encouraged to upload a video of theirs chanting the Hare Krishna Mahamantra.

This video will be uploaded on the website and counted for the 50k chants campaign. The aim of the initiative is to introduce people to Krishna Consciousness, encourage them to chant the mantra for peace and happiness, thereby sowing a seed of devotional service within their hearts.
With World Holy Name Week approaching in not less than a month, we should gear up and put in our share of contribution towards spreading the Holy Name worldwide and serving SrilaPrabhupada and Sri CaitanyaMahaprabhu in a way they would be most pleased.
