Please Join Us for
a japa intensive workshop
led by Swami Padmanabha

 

As the details are being finalized, please plan on joining us the weekend of March 27-29 at Saragrahi for a spiritually surcharged weekend with classes focusing on japa by Swami Padmanabha intermixed with japa sessions, kirtan and prasadam.

Japa is one of our most important practices for making progress in bhakti. Association of vaisnavas who have developed a taste for this practice is the fast track for advancing toward Krsna’s lotus feet.

By good fortune, Padmanabha Swami will be leading us in this japa/kirtan weekend. He brings a wealth of knowledge and realization. He is an animated and humorous story teller able to make a point in memorable ways. His kirtans bring joy to the heart, and ears as well.

We will be hosting the event at the beautiful scenic Saragrahi in the sacred space of the barn-ashram.

We are hoping that the weather will co-operate, allowing us to open the bath house/campground for attendee accommodations for this event.
