Dear respected Vaisnavas & Vaisnavis,  Hare Krishna!
Please accept my humble obeisances.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
All glories to Sri Sri Guru Gauranga!

Today I am leaving for an extended Prabhupada book distribution marathon and will return to office the first week of Jan 2012.

All email reminders are programmed into our database ready to be sent out on time, and so I hope that the system does not miss a beat while I am away as I will not have any internet access to look after things.

All ics / text / html and csv calendar files for 2012 to 2014 are avaiable online (all years for each location are in one file):

This year we will be distributing in Sweden and Norway! Please pray that Lord Chaitanya and Lord Nityananda shower us with Their mercy so that we can be an instrument in Their hands, that They give us the ability to enthuse others to take a book and contribute to our wonderful movement, thus pleasing Srila Prabhupada!

Thank you all for your kind words of support and to the many sponsors who have helped keep the service running - you are all very much appreciate by me, Hare Krishna!

Please continue to support our services by regularly visiting our devotee sponsored links on the website, thanks!

New Vaisnava Calendar Calculation Software

by Bhaktarupa Das

The GBC (  Vaisnava Calendar Committee announces the first public beta release of its new calendar calculation software, “GCal” (Gaurabda Calendar). This is completely new software, developed from the ground up by Gopalapriya Das of ISKCON Bratislava, Slovakia, and is a full-featured calendar calculation program for Gaudiya Vaisnavas. Choose from the database of thousands of locations, or add new ones. Calculate tithis and naksatras, and add custom events that you are interested in observing. Find out sunrise and sunset timings, and lots more.

This is a beta test release. We invite the devotee community to download the software, give it a test run, and send in their feedback. It is available for free download from  after registration.

Also at KrishnaDays we have published some substantial program documentation for GCal and established a forum for discussion of calendar related topics. Coming soon at this site will be a revolutionary new type of online personalized calendar and reminder system featuring not only the standard observances but also all the days that are important to you, such as your guru’s vyasa puja day, family birthdays, anniversaries, etc.

Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur's Navadwip Panjika explained:

NEW EKADASI RECIPES: (updated 13th May 2008)

kasmad ekadasi jata tasyah ko va vidhir dvija
kada va kriyate kim va phalam kim va vadasva me

ka va pujyatama tatra devata sad-gunarnava
akurvatah syat ko dosa etan me vaktum arhasi

"Oh Gurudeva! When did Ekadasi take birth and from whom did she appear? What are the rules of fasting on the Ekadasi? Please describe the benefits of following this vow and when it should be followed. Who is the utmost worshippable presiding deity of Sri Ekadasi? What are the faults in not following Ekadasi properly? Please bestow your mercy upon me and tell about these subjects, as you are the only personality able to do so."
