March, 1997. The Gaura Purnima festivities in Mayapur West Bengal had the highlight of the second International Mela of the WVA-VVRS. The mela was visited by thouthands of people daily, even though we expected more missions to take advantage of the free exibits sponsored by the Mela for all Vaishnava Missions.
Every night, different drama troops exhibited plays to glorify Lord Sri Krishna and his devotees. The Srivas Angam was again fully decorated and, with a special donation from Ingo Kilian in Germany, the exibits of the Mela had big colour pictures of most of the Acaryas, disciples of Srila Prabhupada Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati. This gave the feeling of a great family reunion.
