The members 'of the Greeley Christian Reformed Church, 8th and 21st St., have been busy in recent weeks, selecting a new name. "Fellowship Christian Reformed Church" is the name they have chosen. .; Since the church's original name was easily confused with various other churches in Greeley which have similar names, the church'.council asked the members to reflect on what the Bible says about the nature and purpose of the church and present suggestions. According to the pastor, a wide variety of suggestions were offered. The whole process climaxed in a congregational meeting last Sunday morning when the congregalion · unanimously selected "Fellowship" as its .choice.

Mus. degree from the Wheaton By GEORGE W. CORNELL AI Religion Writer NEW YORK (AP) -- A high, weathered wall ringed the garden behind the big, red-brick building in Brooklyn. A sign on the front door admonished callers to silence, adding: "Srila Prabhupada needs quiet!" Inside the front hallway, the air piquant with incense, another penciled sign advised; "Please walk soflly and lalk softly.... Srila Prabnupada is here!" the object of this solicitous concern was, as he is formally titled, "His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prahu- pada," 76, founder and spiritual master of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness. "He's napping," whispered a devotee, Panchartna Dos, 22.

"It's great to go out on san- kirtan- a chanting party in the street," said Omkama Dasi, 19, a young woman devotee operating the switchboard at the movements New York lemple on Brooklyn's Henry Street. All the Western followers, many of them young people disillusioned by hedonism or affluence, take Sanscrit names with various religious con- nolalions symbolizing their change from "material" pursuits to'a new "spiritual" path. "We are vaishnav---lovers of God," said Goswami Bali Mardan, 26, an aide to the spiritual master and director of the New York temple, one of about 50 of them started in major cities in this country. Most of the closest adherents--estimated now at. 4,000-live communally in Ihe temples and surrounding apartment houses, going through their daily routine of chants, classes, work and vegetarian meals taken together. "Our objective is to develop greater love of God and to achieve a platform of elevated, blissful life full of knowledge," Goswami Mardan said. "God is the root of everything." When people are out of touch with that reality, he added, they "think of themselves simply as bodies, bul our real identity is spiritual--as souls, as eternal servants of God. If we don't understand who we really are, it is not possible lo be happy." The basic method for allain- ing this spiritual self-understanding, as Ihe movement sees it, is by chanting Ihe name nf God, called Krishna, and olher sounds or "mantras" believed to release the mind from material concepts and link it with God. "Everything else follows naturally,"said Goswami Mardan. Studies are centered on the ancient Vedic literature of India, chiefly the Bhagavad Gita, which the group publishes as a Our Savior's Lutheran sets schedule Our Savior's Lutheran Church, 1800 21st Ave., has planned the following schedule for Holy Week: Palm Sunday: 8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m., Procession and Blessing of the Palms and Special music by the Senior Choir.

"We try not lo have loo much association between men and women," said Omkama Dasi.

It was after noontime, and the appoinlmenl with Ihe spiritual masler still had not come about. He had been welcomed the day before at Kennedy airport with an outpouring of song, dance, showers of flower petals and garlands hung over his neck. But there were no prospects in sight for the interview. A smiling devotee, softly chanting as he counted out Ihe chants on his beads, paused long enough lo pass along Ihe information thai "the masler" was now having a backrub in the garden under the flowering magnolia trees.
