Woodstock festival

Woodstock Final

The final days of the Polish Woodstock were successful beyond our wildest imagination. One hundred and fifty thousand plates of prasadam distributed, four Ratha Yatra parades, hundreds of books sold, countless hours of kirtan with an endless stream of youth in the Mantra Yoga tent and many new friendships forged with the tens of thousands [...]

Full On

The police estimated 500,000 people came to Woodstock. No doubt every single one of them came in contact with Krsna consciousness either by hearing the holy names, dancing with us, taking prasadam, visiting our village … or just seeing blissfull devotees everywhere!

Diving In

As Woodstock began it was as if we dove into a ocean of bliss; Ratha Yatra, harinama, prasad distribution and thousands upon thousands of people coming to our village.

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!

Stormy Weather

Forty-eight hours before Woodstock a huge storm front has descended on the region. With so much at stake we pray that Lord Nrsimhadeva will protect our humble efforts to share Krsna consciousness with hundreds of thousands of conditioned souls this coming week.

Big Boy and Little Boy

Cooking for 50,000 people a day at Woodstock? No problem. With our two pots – Big Boy and Little Boy – it’s a cinch. We’ll also be engaging 200 devotees in 5 large professional kitchens around town 24 hours a day for 4 days. Come and get it!

Behind the scenes

Please everyone give your blessings to these kitchen devotees, who along with their many helpers, prepared over 170,000 plates of prasadam during the two months of our summer festival tour here in Poland. That translates into two meals a day for 250 devotees ( 30,000 meals ) plus 140,000 plates of prasadam at the great [...]
