world-holy-name-week-2011ISKCON Puducherry temple celebrated World Holy Name Week from September 10th to 20th, 2011. As part of the World Holy Name Week celebrations, congregational devotees of ISKCON Puducherry increased number of rounds daily besides their regular 16 rounds and also read from ‘Namamrita’ (a book of Srila Prabhupada’s written instructions on the chanting of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra) daily after their mangala-arati worship service. The main Harinam—public singing of the Lord’s names—enthralled the crowds with stories about Lord Chaitanaya and the power of chanting the Holy Name. The discourse further kindled the desire in their hearts to perform Harinam. The devotees were performed Harinam at main streets of Puducherry and also in Beach along with devotees bearing flags and banners swayed to the soul–stirring kirtan led by Sarvananda prabhu and Keshava Kripa Prabhu.
