KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA – After what seemed an impossible and arduous task, the Malaysian congregation actually surpassed their target. In an unprecedented move, all branches of ISKCON Malaysia throughout the country came together in a consolidated team effort and achieved an outstanding performance surpassing the goal of 100,000 participants and 5,000 homes set for this Damodara Program this year. The results are still pouring in as the Karttik month only ends on 27th November 2008. The Damodara Program started on the 15th October 2008 and continues for six weeks going into the Karttik month.

After a steady progress since the the launch of the Damodara Program, the momentum from the devotees took a dive when news about the health toll that had fallen on HH Jayapataka Swami swept across the world. Devotees were crying, feeling down and could hardly carry on with their regular chores. As days went by, they all realized the one thing they could do for HH Jayapataka that he would definitely be proud of was to carry on preaching and saving every soul on earth. And what better time to do it than on an auspicious month which gives one a thousand times the benefits. This amazing effort is a show of solidarity and love by the entire Malaysia yatra for HH Jayapataka Swami. Srila Prabhupada’s last request to his followers was “You will show your love for me by how you cooperate together”. This is the Malaysia yatra’s offering of love to Srila Prabhupada and HH Jayapataka Swami.
May the Damodara program reach out to the entire world as a small country like Malaysia takes this giant step forward.
