Thanks to Krsnendu’s comprehensive media advertising we were delighted when around eighty enthusiastic guests attended our first Bhakti Yoga Maha Mantra Festival in Waiheke Island. It had been nearly fifteen years since devotees had held a festival programme on the Island. Attendees had such a great time chanting, dancing and feasting, that they begged us to make this a regular event. Our small but dedicated team worked hard throughout the week-end to make the programme a great success. Special thanks go to our visiting guests Trivikrama for his awe-inspiring kirtan that had everyone dancing in the aisles, and to his wife, Sumukhi for her tireless and enthusiastic service.
