I set up Blog Page and First Preaching in Turkey

Dandavats and Pranams to all,

So to day I finished all of the essentials of the blog post stuff. Profile info picture etc.

I am in Ankara Turkey. I just came here from Istanbul. We had some real fine programs in Istanbul. We did one Hari Nam on Sunday in the marketplace on the European side that was out of this world. It is like this Big Bazar with tables everywhere and everything you can imagine to sell. We were well received with the people chanting and dancing in front of us. They clapped their hands, chanted the Maha Mantra, took flyers and books, and generally had a great time. They gave us water and warm smiles. On the way back to the ferry we danced and chanted the entire way back over a mile walk. We were followed by this enthusiastic group of about 8 teenage girls who danced and chanted with us literally at the TOP OF THIER LUNGS. WOW it was so inspiring. We met one devotee from South Africa on the way back named Bhakta Brad with his Fiance from Turkey. It caught us completely by surprise to see him fall on the floor and offer obeisances in the middle of the street. He was so happy to see us and we him. There was also two other younger girls about 8 and 10 who danced and chanted with us the whole way to the ferry with their father. It was so extraordinary to see how Lord Caitanyas Mercy was blessing everyone. I sold some books in the Mall to a group of hair dressers in their salon yesterday in Istanbul. It was also amazing to see how much they were interested in Bhakti Yoga.

I will be doing my first program tonight in Ankara and tomorrow Hari Nam Sankirtan and Book distribution. I will report on it as it happens. Thanks for reading the blog and remember Chant Hare Krishna and your life will be sublime!

Your Servant
Uncle Bhagavat Maharaja
