Coming through the Pandemic--EVERY festival in 2022 was attended by more people than pre-pandemic times. After all the lockdowns & restrictions over the last 2 years, conditioned souls are eager to get out and experience life again. Pulling Lord Jagannatha's Chariot down city streets while enthusiastically chanting the Holy names--Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare--is a great way to uplift outselves.
Due to the increased participation in every festival this year, we need to provide more tents for the festivals we do. We're not replacing tents--we are planning to add 10 additional tents to Festival of India. We are also upgrading Festival of India's sound system--specifically we are replacing the power amplifiers and old speaker cabinets with 'powered speakers'--that are lighter, smaller, and put out more sound. We also plan on upgrading the mixxing board console. You can see a short video presentation of Festival of India's 'Tents and Sound Equipment campaign here. Hare Krishna!
