“This Krishna culture has so many festivals. We could have one every day. In the spiritual world, every day is a festival."
Srlla Prabhupada
"Our movement is for ananda, simply bliss, and the method of pushing this movement is chanting, dancing, feasting and philosophizing. So in our almanac there are many festivals in every month."
(Srila Prabhupada in a letter to Jadurani Dasi - July '69)
"The best way to maintain enthusiasm is by regular chanting with the devotees together in the temple and by having festivals. So you should immediately have one festival then everyone will be busily engaged. There are so many festivals that I can give you one for every day."
(Srila Prabhupada in a letter to Svati Dasi - Jan '72)
"Observe many festivals. That will keep both public and devotees alive. Temple means festivals and festivals means chanting and distribution of prasadam"
(Srila Prabhupada in a letter to Tamal Krishna Goswami - Aug '73)
"Either alone or in public gatherings, with singing, dancing and other exhibitions of royal opulence, one should arrange to celebrate those holy days, ceremonies and festivals set aside especially for My worship."
(Krishna to Uddhava in Srimad Bhagavatam 11.29.11)
"Transcendental are the appearance and disappearance of Krishna's devotees who are sent to this material world to preach the glories of the Lord. According to the principles of Vaisnavism, both the appearance and the disappearance of such Vaishnavas, or devotees of Vishnu (Krishna), are all-auspicious. Therefore we hold festivals in their honor on the anniversaries of both days."
(Srila Prabhupada in "Second Chance" Text 4)
