Old website back

By the kind services of our dear butter thief Makhan Chor, we can now again present the old nimai website. Although a bit un-updated there is tons of stuff inside to explore!

Reality beyond banality

I spoke with a sceptic and described the experience of chanting the Maha Mantra, and she said roughly this:

You can't prove that any of that is metaphysically true. The shift in consciousness you describe could be a psychological effect of believing in the mantra and in God. In that case you are just seeking a pleasant experience, and the motivation to that is hedonism.

To which I replied:

Yes, you have a point, but your view is based on nihilism; the assumption that nothing is sacred, that sanctity is a human invention, that life is nothing beyond matter. My view is based on the hope that sanctity is real and exists by itself. The hope that there is a reality beyond banality. The search for sanctity needs no motivation, it is its own motivation. It is life seeking its own reality.

EXTRA NEWS! A sanctuary on the hills

By Vasudeva Das 

Congratulations to all friends of Nimaihuset!
We have just aquired access and partnership for a place on the hills of Gamlestan. I am collecting a group of happy volunteers who wants to enjoy the spirit of pioneering and building something new!
My vision is to establish a sanctuary for contemplation, art-courses, studies of scriptures and connection with earth through growing food. To a large degree it is already a sanctuary with its beautiful garden and surroundings. The hillside view over Gothenburg allows the mind to take a break. Breath in, breath out. 

Feel most welcome to contact me and investigate if you want to be a part of this.

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.


Warm welcome!
