From Bhakta dasa:

On March 15 ISKCON - a member of the Port Phillip Inter-Faith group - was proud to participate in Harmony with our Neighbours, Harmony with the Earth. Celebrating the diversity of our Australian community, the event was a preliminary to the Parliament of the World's Religions in Melbourne in December.

TheBhaks Side by side with enviromental and conservation groups, religious and faith groups set up booths in Alma Park, East St Kilda.

Of course, the devotees had a book stall, placed between the Salvation Army, Beth Israel Temple and various Christian groups. We displayed Srila Prabhupada's books, information about Melbourne Temple and the welfare projects that we undertake in the region. We distributed delicious cookie and cake prasadam snacks to all the stall holders and to the general public at the festival free of charge: thanks to Vrajanari Mataji.

Speaking at the launch of the event the Mayor of Port Phillip, Frank O'Connor, especially complemented Aniruddha Prabhu for his contribution.

ISKCON then joined the many multi- cultural groups in performing on the main stage. Sri Yasoda and her group of vaisnavi kirtaneers chanted the sweet sounds of Krishna's Holy Names. They really impressed the audience.

The ISKCON devotees were also thanked for helping to produce the Multi-Faith network IMG_2141sm directory, which features three devotees on its cover. The booklet will be distributed to every household in the Port Phillip community.

All in all it was a great day: in a very significant way it allowed the general public and the community to get to know their local Hare Krishnas just a little bit better.
