Dear Maharaja’s, Prabhu’s and Mataji’s,

Please accept my fallen obeisance’s. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

I am writing this letter to beg of the devotees to help me fulfill Srila Prabhupada’s desire to have Ratha Yatra all over this planet. My name is Partha-sarathi dasa, I am a Sergeant First Class in the active duty US Army. I have been preaching in Iraq since 2003. I am now about to deploy for my fourth tour in Iraq. This tour will be for 15 months. I have received permission from my Commanding Officer to have 2 Ratha Yatra’s, on US Bases, one being Mosul then other being Talafar. Last time I was deployed I was given facility to have Bhagavat Gita classes, and do book distribution to the soldiers. I am requesting the devotees to adopt a brahmacari and help facilitate my preaching. Our Ratha Yatra is scheduled for August 15th, I am expecting 200 - 900 soldiers to participate. Any help would be very much appreciated. Also devotees who would like to sponsor a soldier, please let me know. 15 months is along time in war, together we can make it the best experience the soldiers ever had.

Your servant in Srila Prabhupada’s mission,

Partha-sarathi dasa
