His Holiness Jaypataka Swami Maharaja’s Vyas pooja was celebrated with great zeal by his disciples. ISKCON Sydney Temple as a venue adorned the grand celebrations with enthusiastic disciples and extended family members. The festival was a wonderfully organised effort. In spite of it being a working day a good number of devotees turned up to assist with the celebrations. The euphoric mood was palpable throughout the temple. Thank you to everyone who helped make the Vyas pooja a big success.
