We are running the ‘Bhagavad Gita As It Is’ Essay Competition for the second year running.
This year it is open for everyone globally to enter the competition.
There are over A$10,000 in prizes over 3 categories.
A devotee living near the New Govardhana farm in Northern New South Wales, Australia, Padma devi dasi, won the $10,000 prize last year (see picture).
Bhakti Charu Swami gave a speech on the Gita, at the award night presentation in Sydney.
Recently he has said about the competition:
“I am also very hopeful that the Bhagavad-gita competition in ISKCON this year will be successful again and that many individuals will feel inspired to participate. It is such a wonderful means of engaging people in the study of the scriptures.”
Please tell everyone in your congregation about the Essay Competition and that it is open to everyone. It can be used as an outreach preaching tool, especially Youth Outreach.
Please forward this information to your database and preachers in your community. The flyer below can also be put on various local devotee Facebook pages as well.
