Kirtan Festival By HG Madhava Prabhu on 11th Feb 2018


Yesterday 11th Feb, 2018 the devotees of Sri Sri Radha Vrindavanchandra Mandir, ISKCON PUNE NVCC were privileged by the presence of HG Madhava Pr,

a world renowned kirtan leader, especially known for his deep and absorbing kirtans.

Owing to a Sunday, the temple hall was bustling with activity and a huge throng of people leading even to the balcony, eager in anticipation of the

event.The team of devotees were busy since last two days making different arrangements including travel, prasadam,

volunteering, event management, etc. for Madhava pr and team. Their hard work bearing fruit, the Kirtan event was smooth and hassle free.

The kirtan began at 4.45 pm and went on till 7.15 pm, beginning with the introduction of Madhava pr. He began by giving a short talk

on the holy name from a quotation by Srila Prabhupada. He was assisted on mrdanga by HG Vrindavan Kirtan Pr along with other

instruments like the flute, violin and guitar. The Kirtan lifted the spirits of one and all – the brahmacharis, the congregation

devotees, the children (who are a special favorite of Madhava pr) and all other temple visitors who attended the Kirtan.

Madhava Pr was extremely happy with the overall reception this time also as he was in the previous year.DSC_9287 DSC_9309 DSC_9316 DSC_9329 DSC_9337 DSC_9347 DSC_9366 DSC_9379 DSC_9392 DSC_9407 DSC_9409 DSC_9420 DSC_9423 DSC_9447 DSC_9449 DSC_9451 DSC_9471 DSC_9493 DSC_9499 DSC_9500 DSC_9533 DSC_9537 DSC_9539 DSC_9543 DSC_9550 DSC_9551 DSC_9590 DSC_9596 DSC_9597
