This year we are celebrating the 40th anniversary of Srila Prabhupada’s first visit to Australia. After arriving in Sydney in May 1971 Srila Prabhupada installed our beloved deities of Sri Sri Radha Gopinatha. That was the official start of ISKCON in Australia.
On May 21 & 22 we are going to have a grand celebration to commemorate these two historical events. We are expecting a hundred of initiated disciples of Srila Prabhupada as well as many other devotees from across Australia arriving for this special occasion. This weekend will be packed with different attractions and will provide to us, Sydney devotees, with great opportunities to serve our guests and associate with so many wonderful souls.
As you can imagine, event like this will require a lot of cooperative work and effort. We, as the hosts of the celebrations, want to make sure that each and every of our guests will leave Sydney Temple with wonderful memories.
We therefore humbly request you to help us in organising these 40th anniversary celebrations. We will require a variety of service across the whole weekend, as well as in days leading up to and time after the festival.
Please contact us if you are willing to offer your time and skills to Sri Sri Radha Gopinatha and serve Them during Their 40th anniversary.
If you have volunteered before, and you’re aware of what you would like to do, then just suggest the area you’d like to be assigned to. Otherwise we will propose the services we require help with the most.
Please specify your availability, indicating date and time you’re accessible. Our volunteer coordinator Rajashekhar Prabhu will assign you to a Department Head, who will instruct you with the relevant details about your service.
We will need help during the entire period between 16-24 of May. The main focus is on the 21 and 22 of May, but if you are available before, or after the festival, we will of course be happy to get your help.
Please don’t miss this great opportunity to serve Radha Gopinatha and Their devotees.
Please express your service availability to Rajashekhar Prabhu : firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you very much
In the service of Sri Sri Radha Gopinatha
