Was the 16th a Fast Day?

Dear Chakra,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

I am very unfortunate that I could not be in Mayapur when His Holiness Tamal Krishna Goswami passed away. Right now I am at the Long Island temple near New York City. Here, we devotees are completely dependent upon Chakra for news.

It is sad, therefore, that we did not see the news that the GBC body requested devotees to fast for half day on March 16 until late afternoon of March 16.

I am sad for this. I spent the whole day thinking about Tamal Krishna Maharaja, and we discussed him during the morning class, but I only wish the news about the fast day had reached us in time.

Your servant,
Vipramukhya Swami

[We missed it here too, so we observed it the next day. The message was sent out from India on the morning of the 16th itself. Unfortunately, it’s not always possible to keep Chakra up to the minute.]
