By the mercy of Śrī Guru and Śrī Gaurāṅga,
Dīna-Anukampana Dās has been working on propagating
the mass singing of the Bhagavad Gītā since 1996.
It is a way of encouraging the masses
to actually pick up the holy book and start reciting or singing it daily.
In this connection he has published the book
"Śrīmad Bhagavad Gītā Ślokas for daily recitation"
(Deluxe edition, 500 pages on art paper, stitch bound and 2-colour on every page)

G) The Brahma Samhita**, sung by Fabrizio Mastroianni's
girls' choir at Śrīla Śrīpād Mahārāj's Bhaktivedānta Institute's Conference
on "Life & Its Origin - Scientific and Religious Perspectives"
which was hosted by the Mayor of Rome at his classical Protomoteca Hall
ROMA, ITALY Nov. 12th, 2004
Dr Fabrizio Mastroianni, director of www.radiokrishna.com, like his father,
is an expert Gregorian Chanter and he established this wonderful choir of
young girls who live in the outskirts of Rome but who hail from families of
very different cultures and backgrounds, and he teaches them to sing and
chant ancient traditional religious chants from the various religions of the world.
He finds great joy in doing this.
Here the girls are seen singing at the opening ceremony of the above-mentioned
conference, and they literally stole the show! I had the fortune to help train them up
in singing and pronouncing the Sanskrit as best as they could, for the pleasure
of Śrīla Śrīpād Mahārāj.
On that day, due to unavoidable circumstances, the program started nearly an
hour late, and these girls, who had come by bus from the outskirts of Rome
were tired and hungry, yet they stood quiety for so long, and when finally they
sang, they simply stole everyone's heart.... Śrīla Śrīpād Mahārāj spontaneously
went up to them and everyone else followed and there ensued a spontaneous
photo taking session, no doubt further disrupting the already late program, but
nonetheless enlivening and charming everyone! This was envisioned by Srila
Sripad Maharaj, whose wonderful and gentle ways captured the hearts of all
who ever interacted with him! All glories to Śrīla Śrīpād Mahārāj Gurudev!
**The Brahma Samhita is the oldest prayer in the universe, composed and sung by Lord Brahma to Lord Krishna before he created the planets within this universe. Lost for centuries, it was 'found' in a wooden box by Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu 500 years ago, along with the great work of Śrī Bivamaṅgal Thākur Śrī Krishna-karnāmrita, in the sanctum sanctorum of the ancient Ādī Keśava temple of Trivandram district, Kerala.
