Vishwambhar Das explains the importance of this year’s World Holy Name Week
Vishwambar Das, a famous kirtaniya, elaborates on the importance of this year’s World Holy Name Week – Srila Prabhupada’s Gift to the World.
In an interview with a member of the World Holy Name Week’s organising committee, Vishwambar Das mentions how the Hare Krishna mahamantra has become a household name, thanks to Srila Prabhupada.
“By the grace of Srila Prabhupada, the entire world has become familiar with the chanting of the Hare Krishna mantra and so many people in their lives, with their families and friends gather together to chant the holy names,” he says.
With the event being just two days away, Vishwambar Das encourages people to participate in the event and understand the value of the precious gift of the mahamantra that Srila Prabhupada has given.
“This is a very special time dedicated to chanting the holy names – a whole week of gathering together to go deeper and deeper in manifesting the potency of the holy name in our hearts,” he says. “If we can take this seriously, we can create a change in our hearts and thus create a change in anyone we meet, and in the world. This is the great gift that Srila Prabhupada has given us – the ambassador of the holy names.”
The event which will be held between the 9 th and the 17 th of September 2017 celebrates the centurial anniversary of Srila Prabhupada arriving into the West to propagate the glories of the holy name and the message of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Temples and centres across the globe are invited to participate in this event making it one of a kind. They can hold various events like japa marathons, seminars, harinams, kirtan melas and much more on an individual and a congregational level.
“So, let us all do our part to support the World Holy Name Week and uplift our consciousness and uplift the consciousness of the whole world through Krishna consciousness,” concludes Vishwambar Das.
