The program named “Ancient Wisdom of India” began at 2PM in a classroom suitable for prison events. Gour-Govinda Prabhu, Radha Mohan Prabhu also participated in the lecture, as they were visiting their friend Tarana Caitanya Prabhu who is serving a sentence here.

Four inmates took part in the program, one of them had already attended our lectures in VaraĹždin prison. He gladly remembered those lectures and his association with devotees. Another inmate had also been in contact with devotees and Srila Prabhupada`s books, he was Sundarananda Prabhu`s roommate in the temple dormitory in the nineties.

After an introductory presentation of ISKCON and our service, we sang bhajans. The inmates also sang a little, especially when Tarana Caitanya Prabhu lead the singing. We then held a short lecture on the basic topics of Krishna consciousness and concluded with an especially long talk with the inmates.

With hope to please our spiritual master and the Supreme Lord,

Your servant Ajitananda das
