Krishna Love Feast : First held in 1966 at the request of Srila Prabhupada (founder of the Hare Krishna Movement), the Krishna Love Feast has evolved as an integrated celebration of Krishna’s pastimes: chanting, hearing spiritual knowledge, dancing, eating, fellowship and generally sharing the bliss of spiritual experience.
In the Bhagavad-gita – one of the world’s oldest spiritual texts – it is said : “This knowledge is the king of education, the most secret of all secrets. It is the purest knowledge, and because it gives direct perception of the self by realization, it is the perfection of spirituality. It is ever increasingly blissful, and joyfully performed.”
As we gather, we are led in universal kirtan yoga by classical Indian singer, Sharon, what follows is an ecstatic call-and-response chant to spiritual sound vibrations of Krishna and Rama, which may spontaneously include blissful dancing to the chant.
We then hear a talk with power point on spiritual philosophy by Vijay Das, our guest speaker who has an experience of 25 years of bhakti yoga practice.
After closing with deep meditation on yogi japa beads called Japa yoga, we continue with a delicious Indian-style yogi feast (prasadam) and question/answer sessions.
