Mass Prayer to Mitigate Emergency Drought Situation in Texas - Pl share.......
As ordained by our Guru Maharaj, HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji, AKHANDA (Continuous) MAHAMANTRA SANKIRTAN (Chanting) will be performed with Prayers for Abundant Rains and Alleviation of Texas Drought Situation on
Saturday, Sep 24: 7 AM to 7 PM
Sunday, Sep 25: 6 AM to 6 PM
Exactly two weeks ago, Akhanda Mahamantra sankirtan with prayers for rains in Texas were performed -- in Dallas on Saturday Sep 10, and in Houston Namadwaar on Sunday Sep 11. And indeed, within a few days, the entire state of Texas was drenched with copious and welcome rains!
However, the Texas drought situation continues and the state needs much more rain to make a significant dent in the drought and dryness prevailing all across the state: the worst drought on record in the state!
The drought is affecting food prices, farmers and crops across the state are suffering acutely, jobs are being lost, homes are being damaged because of wildfires, and if this drought continues, not only will the lack of water reach our homes, but the drought will even have a larger impact on Texas and on the world.
Below are some recent articles in the media about how bad the Texas drought is. One look at the US Drought Monitor is enough to tell the story!

It is time we ALL did something about the Texas situation! We KNOW that the Mahamantra can bring us the Lord's grace and make it rain abundantly in Texas. (watch this video to see the effect prayers with Mahamantra had in the Australian drought in 2007 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRDPoXaLzi8 )
We BESEECH and URGE EACH and EVERY ONE of you to join us in chanting the Mahamantra -- Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare, Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare -- and praying for rains in Texas.
Let us take refuge in Him and He will shower us with His blessings.
Please, Please join us at Namadwaar -- 3642 Bailey Ave, Manvel TX 77578 -- for a few minutes or a few hours this weekend... and add your chanting to ours. Group prayers are extremely effective: the more we chant His Names, the more are the blessings that will be showered on us!

Thank you Sonja...from my soul's heart~
And the heart of Texas~
Within fear, is the potential for deeper Love
Fearing, seeing...knowing loss, has allowed for truth revealed
Each time, with child-like surprise...this sacred reality, newly born
Thank you...thank you
