Dear Reader,

 

The last few months, there was a lot to do in the community. The entire month of June we were pleased to welcome 27 students for the ‘yoga teachers course’. For both them and us, this was a very useful experience and all of them succeeded. We wish them a lot of success during their future career. They have also assisted us during the sessions we had organized on the occasion of the World Yoga day on 21 June. There were workshops for interested neighbors including families with children and elderlies.


In addition to Yoga, there was also time for some spiritual development. His Holiness Sacinandana Swami gave us during his ‘Holy Name Retreat’ more insight on putting our trust in Krishna and how to turn to him, not only in times of need. He showed this with an example: If we are sick and go to the doctor, we go to get better, to recover. We know some medicine will help us, but that is not enough to get better. We also need to actually take the medicine. Same goes for Maha Mantra meditation. There are books written about the power of the Mantra; historically there are many examples that exemplify this, and we hear from spiritualists that the Maha Mantra helps. So… maybe we should give it a try?


Now it’s summertime, this also means that the festival season has come. We would also like to welcome you to Radhadesh during our festivals! Music, lectures, an Indian market place, good food, a beautiful environment, like-minded souls and Krishna, what more can one wish for?

 

 

 

 

Hope to see you soon,

Kim

Balaram purnima


On 26 August we celebrate the appearance day of Lord Balarama. Balarama, also known as Baladeva, is the elder brother of Krishna.

Lord Balarama gives the excellent example of the serving mood to Krishna. His only mission is to please Krishna by serving Him, whether it’s in the creation of the material world, maintaining the spiritual world or in the form of personal paraphernalia.

We can also easily serve Krishna. By just chanting the Maha Mantra, we can come closer to him. George Harrison said the following words regarding this subject: By serving GOD through each thought, word and DEED, and by chanting HIS Holy Names, the devotee quickly develops God-consciousness.By chanting Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare, Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare one inevitably arrives at KRISHNA Consciousness.

 

As you see, it will be a busy summer. Our devotees are ready for it and are fully engaged in the organization of all this. But… they cannot do this alone. Many hands make light work, as they say, so we would like to ask your help. Anyone who wants to help before, during and after a festival is very much welcome to join. Even if you have only an hour of time, it will mean a lot.


If you are not able to help in the form of manpower, you might be interested in supporting our activities financially. This can be done by a donation, but also by a simple contribution of €10 per month. It might be a small contribution for you, but for us it is a whole support! You can find more information on our website.https://www.radhadesh.com/en/members/

 

 

 
 
 
 
 

Chant and be happy!
