Hot Air Balloon Sankirtan

Hare Krishna, Prabhus!

I wish to inform the Vaisnava community of my humble effort to serve Srila Prabhupada's mission.

I have been flying hot air balloons since 1991, first in San Diego, California, and now in Toronto, Canada. I was fortunate enough to be invited to bring my balloon to Srila Prabhupada's Centennial celebration in Vancouver, Canada some years ago.

Fitted with a banner 25 feet by 10 feet that read "HARE KRISHNA," the balloon was inflated on the temple grounds. Once inflated, the balloon stood 60 feet high and actually stopped traffic in all directions.

It was a glorious event that saw the Radha Krishna Deities take a tethered ride aboard the balloon while the kirtan exploded below. This, I believe, was a first for Their Lordships, anywhere on this planet.

We gave many rides to guests and devotees over the period of the festival, which was a huge success.

I would love to duplicate this blessed event anywhere in the world where devotees would invite me to come. I am able to attach your banner or advertisement to the balloon and can usually guarantee maximum exposure of the Holy Names.

This activity is weather dependent and needs advance planning, but the results are glorious. Please feel free to e-mail me at skyadz@hotmail.com with your blessings.

Hare Nam Sankirtan Ki Jai!

Your fallen servant,
Ugresa Dasa ACBSP
