Hare Krishna. Joined devotees at ISKCON MAYAPUR BARU, Teluk Intan for the Sunday evening program yesterday.
This is one of the towns where Srila Prabhupada laid his lotus feet in 1971 when he made a 5 days flash tour of the country. Teluk Intan was his first stop after Kuala Lumpur and then to Ipoh and Penang, in all these places ISKCON MALAYSIA has established preaching centres and a big temple in Penang inaugurated in 2015 dedicated to the instruction Srila Prabhupada left behind while he was in Malaysia.
The Presiding Deities at ISKCON MAYAPUR BARU are Sri Sri Dayal Nitai Gaura Hari.
Srila Prabhupada was also loved so much in Teluk Intan that the local Swami Siva Jyoti at that time wanted Srila Prabhupada to remain in Teluk Intan for the night and he purposefully delayed the taxi arrangements. Srila Prabhupada somehow came to know about this and he made some arrangements and reached the next town Ipoh though very late but with a packed crowd at the Ipoh St Johns Hall.
Jai Srila Prabhupada!
