Her Royal Highness Princess Katrina of Yugoslavia welcomed Radhanath Swami, other devotees and a host of dignitaries at the River Room of the House of Lords, part of London’s Parliament, on Wednesday 17th April. After Her Royal Highness warmly congratulated Bhaktivedanta Manor on its 40th Anniversary she added that “the Manor facilitates so much education, culture and spirituality in the community. It is wonderful how it gives the opportunity for people to work closely with the land with its farming and horticultural activities. It is also noteworthy that during Her Majesty’s Golden Jubilee, she visited The Krishna Avanti School”.

President of Bhaktivedanta Manor His Grace Srutidharma das said “we are standing on the shoulders of previous generations of devotees who with great determination and devotion have left a lasting legacy so that now many thousands can worship their Lordships Shri Shri Radha Gokulanda”.

The guest speaker Radhanath Swami spoke of love and service, “it is knowledge through service that culminates in love, otherwise it will not touch the lives of others”. He then invited all the guests to Shri Krishna Janamastami Festival on 28th August and 1st September 2013 marking the 40th year celebrations of Bhaktivedanta Manor.

One of organisers of the event was the Vice president of HSBC Surinder Shandilya who said “it is a privilege to have so many royal representatives and influential leaders in politics, business, arts and academe to celebrate this most important pilgrimage site, Bhaktivedanta Manor”.

The evening reception was concluded by Patti Boulaye who sang the Hare Krishna mantra opera style, to an enthusiastic applause. She then expressed that she is really looking forward to visit the Manor during this special year. Patti is a British-Nigerian international singer and a favourite among the Royal Family.
