Harinam Samkirtan

Harinama In Haifa

Yesterday we did harinama in Haifa, Israel’s 3rd largest city. Israelis are celebrating their New Year and the beaches are crowded. As we experienced in Tel Aviv people spontaneously came forward to dance with us. I have never experienced this on such a scale in any other country of the world. In one sense it [...]

Kirtan In The Promised Land

Amongst the background of religious traditions existing for thousands of years in Israel devotees of Krsna blissfully propagate the chanting of God’s holy names. People love the kirtan and easily join in. Just another example that kirtan is a universal process that can benefit the entire world.

Planting the Seed

Just go out and throw the seed of the Holy name, and definitely some will take root, germinate and grow.

Twenty-Eight Down, Twenty To Go

We continue to go out daily. With so many festivals this summer it’s become a blur of harinams, lectures, people, places, books and prasadam. But a wonderful blur it is….

Become Fortunate

Anyone who takes to the worship of the Supreme Lord automatically receives the blessings of the goddess of fortune because she herself is always seeking the pleasure of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

Testing The Field

Yesterday we went out with harinam to greet the first wave of people coming to Woodstock. If the reception we got is any indication of what’s ahead there’s going to be a lot of nectar flowing the next few days!

The Best Welfare Activity

Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu wanted His followers to move all over the world to preach in every town and village. In the Caitanya-sampradāya those who strictly follow the principles of Lord Caitanya must travel all over the world to preach the message of Lord Caitanya.

No Small Thing

The vast infrastructure for the Polish Woodstock Festival is slowly coming together. It’s no small thing to set up an event for 450,000 people! Our boys are also busy building Krsna’s Village of Peace. With only days to go our village will soon look like heaven on earth …

The Calm Before the Storm

Kostrzyn nad Odra is over 1,000 years old and has a population of 27,000 inhabitants. But next week over 400,000 people will descend on the town for this year’s Polish Woodstock Festival. Krsna’s Village of Peace will be right in the center of it all. For now the Woodstock field is relatively quiet, but it’s [...]

Off We Go

We’re half way through our festival tour. Yesterday we did harinam and had another blissful festival attended by thousands. Today we leave for Kostrzyn-nad-Odra to begin setting up Krsna’s Village of Peace at Woodstock. The nectar is flowing like a raging river!
