Gaura Purnima!

 
On Saturday the 11th March we celebrate Gaura Purnima, the appearance of Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu (a.k.a. Nimai), the Golden Avatar, coming secretly 500 years ago to freely distribute the highest: pure love of God, and by His own example show the souls in the material world how to go to the Innermost Realm of the Absolute, the heart of God. 

We will sing devotional songs, Arci mataji gives lecture, there will be abisheka (Deity bathing), arati (Deity greeting) and lots of wonderful Prasadam – spiritualized vegetarian food.

17.00!

Warm welcome!

Healing faith (New book)

Gifting water unto herself




Water, just as love, is not a thing.

Yet all sentient beings may adore the queen of elements in her gracious circle dancing

From austere crystal white snow-peaks far above,

liberated under the warm orange-bright sun gaze of her one love.

Only to share her life of giving with everyone.

Nursing each of us, soil sheltered seeds inherent potency.

She melts to flow spontaniously, the fastest path towards the sea

given intuition by earth mothers hearts gravity

As if carried away by her longing, she leaps free from that same gravitation and up she soar towards her Lords as vapour.

alighting the sky with multicoloured clouds of feelings

Adore ye all! just as love, water is life giving.



Gifting Earths heart is brimming over of affection.

In the form of restless liquid waters.

Since ancient times her touch have purifyed the three worlds

all the while remaining ever pure in constitution.



Inexaustable she surges forth, sharing the nature of her being with every living being.

Without descriminating

When two rivers meet, they embrace their alikeness

Uniting the streangth of their longing



A twirling dance merge their core in a confluence.

Then further downstream, separation of the two makes no sense.

So in love as in water, transparent life of giving

sharing their purity with anyone submerging fully



The two are self forgetful pure givers in their innermost hearts intent, non different from their fully flexible form and forever transparent.

With Love we gift water unto herself.

Pranami Srimati Ganga Devi!

Christmas Tables 2016 (Pictures)

A report from the Christmas Tables for our friends, by Satyavrata Muni prabhu. As he points out at the end, not only the love and ecstacy is steadily growing but also the number of visitors. And the popularity. The bookings are coming earlier and earlier. A few days ago (January thus), last year's record (March) was broken when we received the first booking from one of our friends of friends who wanted to be sure to get a place for him and his family at this year's coming Tables, in 11 months.

By Satyavrata Muni Das

The 2016 Christmas tables at our Swedish temple Nimaihuset were yet another success! A Christmas table is a Swedish tradition where you visit a restaurant with friends or coworkers in the middle of December and eat from a large buffet of Christmas dishes, where meat, fish and alcohol play prominent roles. We are offering a vegetarian Christmas table two times each December for our friends, for the affordable price of 150 SEK, which is roughly the price of a main course at an ordinary restaurant.

Kirtan on the roof in the Canary Islands

La Gomera, January 2017. Sweet kirtan with devotees from Europe and South America. The Canary Islands televison was filming. Gurumaharaj told our Premsita Mataji, sixty-fourteen yrs old, to join the dancers, who began following her (from 2:50).

Art and Yoga retreat in India

"Join us for an 11-day retreat in the heart of Mystic India."

 These days we will explore the essence of what is Yoga. Vrindavan is an ancient temple-town with over 5000 temples and ashrams where the locals and pilgrims share a timeless faith in Universal Divinity. Since thousands of years the area has been revered as place for healing and deepening ones own spirituality. Still today students of sanskrit from various Yoga philosophy schools come here for purification and to celebrate their diversity in unity. Our retreat is no exception to that purpose as we embark on a journey within with arts and yoga as our vessel and tool. Our purpose with this retreat is not tourism but rather to share with you an insight into one of the few living ancient cultures of this world.

price: 800 euro

 27 february - 10 March

A memorable moment

An incredible moment of healing at Standing Rock: Hundreds of veterans ask Native elders for forgiveness.



"We fought you. We took your land. We signed treaties that we broke. We stole minerals from your sacred hills. We blasted the faces of our presidents onto your sacred mountain... We didn’t respect you, we polluted your Earth, we’ve hurt you in so many ways but we’ve come to say that we are sorry. We are at your service and we beg for your forgiveness." -Wes Clark, Jr.

Awaken (Ananda Shanti)

Some fine conscious electronic music by our Godbrother Ananda Shanti prabhu from Berlin/Canary Islands.

2:25: "That's what religion, that's what spirituality, that what yoga, that's what true human culture is meant to do – awaken the Divinity that is within us. And to be an instrument of That." (Radhanath Swami)


 
"Deep yoga, inbound yoga – there you find your priorities."

"The Srimad Bhagavatam is telling us about the perfection of the yoga system. What is that perfection of yoga? That which removes all the illusion in our life and establishes us in a healthy and wholesome way."

"What is the essence of all this? This is really the most important question to ask."

"The Inbound Yoga System is giving us a chance to become a member of that group of people who want to become instruments of Divine Love."

"We have to also understand that of all the yogas, the most ecstatic execution of communion is when we pray to the Holy Name [chanting the Hare Krishna maha-mantra]: when we invoke the presence of Ishvara in our life to become an instrument of His. No yoga exercise is comparable to that. Even if you do the most incredible and difficult yoga exercises, it has nothing to do with that intensive conclusion and dedication: My Lord, let me be an instrument of Your love."
