Festival of India has been going to University of Maryland @ the Baltimore County Campus for many years--when the students see the tents, they remember the prasadam!
Srila Prabhupada's followers always make it a point that along with prasadam, the students get some "food for thought". Srila Prabhupada's books are the greatest gift we can give anyone--the gift of Transcendental Knowledge. The devotees in Baltimore and Washington D.C. are freely distributing both Krishna Prasadam and Srila PRabhupada's books.
On Tuesday May 5th, Festival of India visited Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Above is a professor, after enjoying his prasadam, he's happy and walking out of the hall with a Transcendental Meditation Kit (includng Srila Prabhupada's books) in his left hand.
On Monday, May 4th 2015 Festival of India set up on Towson University
Being the first time to visit this campus, the attendance was a little smaller than the other University programs Festival of India has been doing for many years, but there was a steady, but slow, flow of students. Whoever came received a full plate of prasadam, and a meditation kit. Hare Krishna
Another day, another University campus--Krishna Prasadam; FOI's Exhibits; Srila Prabhupada's Transcendental Books...

Books, going, going, they were going all day--slow and steady, until all the books were gone. Hare Krishna

Parts of the Illustrated Bhagavad-gita exhibit, as well as parts of the Vegetarianism & Reincarnation exhibits were also set up on the AU campus.
More than 875 students received plates of delicious Krishna Prasadam
On April 18 Festival of India set up at the ISKCON Temple for the first-ever Holi Festival @ ISKCON Orlando's campus. The Festival attracted more than 500 people, many of whom were university students.
The Orlando ISKCON center, right on Rouse Road, has thousands of cars driving by every day so the above sign was instrumental in bringing the students and other local residents to the festival.
The fun starts...

For some, the name "Bellevue" brings to mind the quite famous asylum in New York state, but this Bellevue is Bellevue Washington, a charming city section of the greater Seattle area.

Once again chugging up Interstate # 5 through northern California, and the state of Oregon, FOI made its way to Downtown park, Bellevue the night of august 28. After checking in with park security, a nights rest was observed.

On the morning of Saturday August 23, Festival Of India's mini-motorcade managed the hills of San Francisco to arrive in a timely fashion for setting up the Sharon Meadows Hare Krishna Circus in Golden Gate Park--The same Park where Srila Prabhupada sat chanting the Hare Krishna Mantra on Hippie Hill 48 years ago. Hare Krishna.
