Welcome to the latest edition of the on-line HKSRNewsletter, and our humble attempt to render some service to the devotee community. The format of this newsletter has now changed from that of a continuous scroll, please see the table of contents where everything is hyper-linked on-line, we hope it's now easier and faster loading for you all.
    This newsletter still goes out to way over 3508 receivers world wide, in service to the online sankirtan movement, and global devotee community. We apologize to readers that due to some health issues we have had to cut back to one issue per month rather than two per month as it was.
    We trust that all is well with everyone by the Mercy of the Lord. However, if anyone would like to be removed please just send us a message requesting me to do so, and we will do it promptly. If you are receiving this from a friend, and would like to be added directly to the mailout please also let us know and we will do the needful there too. Removal and Subscription details are at the very end of this newsletter.

Hare Krishna. =>B-) JTCd

"May there be good fortune throughout the universe, and may all envious persons be pacified. May all living entities become calm by practicing bhakti-yoga, for by accepting devotional service they will think of each otherís welfare. Therefore let us all engage in the service of the supreme transcendence, Lord Sri Krishna, and always remain absorbed in thought of Him."(Srimad Bhagavatam 5:18:9.)
