This week at Hare Krishna Valley we were fortunate to have the presence of His Holiness Devamrita Swami, who facilitated a weekend retreat for over 100 guests. His discources were both informative and enlightening, and challenged the audience to see beyond the modern materialistic patterns of thought.
On the Wednesday night my wife and I attended a public meeting at the Deans Marsh Community Centre to discuss the prospect of brown coal mining in our area. Over 300 people from the local community attended the gathering to oppose the mine, and as a result the mining company withdrew their proposal to pursue an application for mining. This was indeed a victory for the local area and Hare Krishna Valley.
We look forward to speaking to you again next week.
Until then, I remain yours in the service of Srila Prabhupada.
