Temple hall of Sri Sri Radha Govind Mandir was packed, on 11th May, with over 100 youths from around Kolkata to savor the monthly? Prerna festival. The festival began with a melodious kirtan and an energetic drama. Through the drama entitled ‘Live from Ahobilam’, devotees, from the life of Prahlad, dexterously drove the point of how devotion to Lord can award fearlessness.
Drama was followed by a discourse by temple vice president HG Acarya Ratna Prabhu on “Fear to Fearlessness”. Prabhu explained how ignorance leads to fear, the knowledge of soul from Bhagavad Gita can make one fearless. He illustrated from the life of Prahlad Maharaj how despite being a child he had no fear of his antagonistic and powerful father Hiranyakasipu, because of having taken shelter of Lord Vishnu. An enticing question and answer session followed, which displayed the great interest of the audience in the subject matter. Dancing kirtan and Krsna prasad marked a soothing end to the eventful evening.
We look forward to be able to serve the youths through this monthly Prerana soon again.
