9941574873?profile=RESIZE_584xDuring this holiday season, the Bhaktivedanta Players performed their first pantomime drama in Bhaktivedanta Manor’s new Shree Krishna Haveli. Based on the classic tale written by Charles Dickens “A Christmas Carol“, the Players’ parody was laced with its own Krishna Conscious ingredients,  and still retained the powerful messages of promoting faith, morality, and charity.


The show was directed by Jaya Krishna das, and it was written by Radha Mohan das.

8555274085?profile=RESIZE_584xTemperamental weather today. The gods are at work. All was melting. Rains came. Wet snow. Then a blast of arctic freeze hit the land. Ice predominated and walking was unfavourable. Walking Monk out of work.

The Janmashtami festival held at Bhaktivedanta Manor was unsurprisingly not the usual with more than 30,000 attendance with tents, shows, exhibitions and plenty of free prasad. The temple did the best they could within the parameters of present government restrictions: They introduced a 'pre-booked ticket' system for darshan, spread over a number of days. 

One of the highlights of the festival is always the drama on the main stage by the Bhaktivedanta Players..

When the sun moves to touch the horizon, a recording of the beautiful shehnai begins.  It's not the sound of a bird, but a magical-sounding horn accompanied by drone and tabla.  When our guru attended this annual festival, which he inaugurated in the early ‘70s, he hired professional musicians to play and  enhance the meditative spirit.  He, Prabhupada, was very pleased with the sound of the shehnai.  It was recorded.  https://youtu.be/r9nVtgyZoyw

Special Come Together by Bhaktimarga Swami

Sages, avatars and the sacred texts called "Veda" all say the same thing, that the best action you can take in spiritual life is to embrace the company of spiritual comrades.  And so that's what we did today, in a special way, as we do every year.
This year, two of our ladies in their mature years, arranged a lunch for those of the Canadian branch of our mission.  But, wait a second, we had Americans in there too; one who qualified as a "Resister" or as we used to say "Draft Dodger".  Yes, i
