To: jtcd@xtra.co.nz

Hey, VegSourcers! We're only a few days away from the big VegSource Conference 2003 bash! It's not too late to sign up for the event of the year!

We've added some fascinating speakers for the weekend - James Cromwell, star of Babe and LA Confidential, will be speaking on Saturday, Sept. 20; Sister Gita, from the Brahma Kumari church (http://www.bkwsu.com/about/index.html) and Reverend Brenda Lamothe, of the First AME Church, Los Angeles (http://207.201.175.233/FAME2003/), will be joining the spiritual panel taking place on Sunday, Sept 21.

We're having karaoke on Friday, before Dr. Neal Barnard's keynote speech, and more singing and fun  after the lecture. On Saturday, during the outrageous pajama party dance, Richard Maranon (http://www.richardmaranon.com) will be getting everyone MOVING. THIS IS ONE HOT BAND.

During the course of the weekend there will be free samples from companies such as Silk, Whole Soy and Lightlife - both mind and body will be well fed!

Phone reservations will be taken until Thursday, Sept. 18, after which date the vegsource office will be closing and moving into the hotel at the Manhattan Beach Marriott. You may purchase tickets on-line here until Friday:

http://www.vegsource.com/event/reserve.htm

By phone: 818-349-5600

You can buy tickets at the door, but we cannot guarantee entrance to those who do not reserve in advance.

If you have been dreaming about attending the vegsource conference, this is your last chance to make that dream come true. The conference runs from Sept. 19-21, and takes place at the Manhattan Beach Marriot, Manhattan Beach, CA

Manhattan Beach Marriott Hotel
1400 Parkview Avenue
Manhattan Beach, CA 90266
tel: (310) 546-7511

The Marriott has kindly extended the special $84 room rate (that's per room, not per person, up to five people may stay in the room for this price), so you can still sleep in style "on the cheap."

Looking forward to seeing some of your beautiful smiling faces this coming weekend!

Auckland - New Zealand

RATHA YATRA   (Sunday October 5th)

ISKCON is participating in the Global Peace Mission which is being held all
over the world, when many religious leaders join together to propagate the
message of "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam" (The World is One Family).  Our great
Rath Chariot will be a major part of the parade being held on Sunday October 5th.

All ISKCON devotees are asked to assemble with the Chariot at the Mahatma
Gandhi Centre before 11.00 am on that day.  The parade will go from the
Gandhi Centre to the Bharatiya Mandir in Balmoral Road, ending at 1.00 pm.
Programmes will then be held at the Ericsson Stadium, organised by the
Indian Association.  (More information on the website: www.hindunet.org/vdpy )

Hare Krishna devotees may return to the temple for the Sunday Feast.  The
usual Sunday programme and Feast will be held at the Riverhead temple for
those who are not participating in the Parade.
