England’s Vaishnava Resources Exhibition

3,091 views England’s Vaishnava Resources Exhibition thumbnail

This weekend we’re having a Vaishnava Resources Exhibition at the Bhaktivedanta Manor. Its an opportunity for creative devotees to show what they’re offering to the community and a time for networking and offering encouragement to innovative preaching.

After the morning session we’ll be going over to the new Krishna-Avanti Primary School for a guided tour, giving many devotees their first opportunity to view this architectural and educational marvel.

For those readers who cannot make it, here’s just some of the good people that will be assembled under one roof for the first time:

Adi-Guru das works to present Krishna consciousness to a variety of audiences at new age shows like the Yoga Show and Body Mind Spirit. He presents books, beads and incense and bhakti yoga directly. He does mantra meditation workshops and stage shows at events all over England. He offers classes in Bhagavad-Gita, bhakti-yoga and workshops in kirtan and story-telling anywhere in the country. www.pure-incense.com www.ashram-emporium.co.uk email: info@pure-incense.com

ISKCON Pandava Sena (IPS) is a dynamic youth group known for making spirituality fun and for helping youth to develop deeper understandings about life. Consisting of youth between the ages of 15 and 25, its aim is to reveal to youth the essence of the teachings of spiritual India. IPS’ three main activities are:

* Jammin is a fun, dynamic, thought-provoking, socially and spiritually charged alternative Friday/Saturday-night experience. It includes the core elements of spiritual wisdom, Deity worship, mantra meditation, rocking kirtan (spiritual music) and sumptuous prashad (sanctified food)

* Sena Getaways- spiritual retreats. With over 100 youth each year, our Sena Getaway annual trips are not to be missed.

* KC socs – With over twenty university societies around the country, KC Socs gives you the opportunity to take part in interactive presentations and discussions, meals out in London, international trips during the summer and amazing day retreats to Bhaktivedanta Manor (IPS’s UK headquarters in Watford, Hertfordshire). www.psena.com

The Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies (OCHS) is a Recognized Independent Centre of Oxford University. The principal aim of the Centre is the study of Hindu culture, religion, languages, literature, philosophy, history, arts and society, in all periods and in all parts of the world. Projects and initiatives of the Centre include: facilitating Hindu communities to create effective plans for protecting the environment; offering online courses giving a thorough grounding in Hindu beliefs, practices, and traditions; a Hindu studies book series with Routledge, providing publishing opportunities for scholars; publishing the Journal of Hindu Studies in partnership with Oxford University Press. www.ochs.org.uk email: info@ochs.org.uk

At Connect programmes, groups of members meet on a regular basis to systematically study and discuss the content of the books of Krishna consciousness, such as the Bhagavad-gita, and thereby further cultivate a good foundation in the related teachings. Typically taking place in someone’s home in each of the IPS areas, there is an intimate atmosphere in Connect sessions in which everyone’s views are respected. Those that are still fairly new to KC find that they benefit greatly from the matured understanding and appreciation of those who have been practicing for many years. As participants share their realisations, they find that their relationships with others also develop. Email: nimaicandra@psena.com
