Vedische cultureel programma trekt meer aandacht
Hoewel het weer slecht was, drie nieuw jongens hebben zich aanwezig gesteld bij de programma van 19 december voor het eerste keer. Ze hebben ons programma heel leuk gevonden. Ze willen weer deelnemen en willen ze zijn kennissen ook meebregen naar het volgende programma op 16 januarie.

We hebben veel lekkere hapjes gekocht. Vietnamese loompia, erwit soup, pakoda, aaludam- aardaplecurrie, chatney enz. Er was lekkere appeltaart en rusgulla gebracht door Naamhat Eindhoven. Ruim tien mensen hebben deelgenomen. Het ontwikkelen van goedheid was een van de onderwerpen de deelnemers hebben meepraatten.

However the weather on 19 December was snowy, three more new aspirant devotees came to participate in the program. There were more then ten participants. The program highlighted on raising the mode of goodness as explained in the Bhagavad Gita as it is.


Ons dienst op de krant Selissen

Door: Sacha Wijmer
Selissenwal kent een kleurrijke bevolking. Vanuit alle windstreken zijn mensen in de Boxtelse wijk neergestreken. Een van die mensen die zich in de afgelopen jaren hier een plaats heeft verworven is Nanda Gautam met zijn gezin.

In 1999 kwam Nanda Gautam als een gevluchte journalist vanuit het koninkrijk Buthan naar Nederland. Drie jaar later kon hij zich herenigen met zijn vrouw en dochtertje. Hij werkt op Sint Lucas als docent video en als werkplekbegeleider. Om hier een plek te veroveren bedacht Nanda destijds iets praktisch. Hij en zijn vrouw Chandra begonnen elke derde zaterdag van de maand hun huis open te stellen voor mensen. Om samen te koken en te eten. Met koken beginnen Nanda en Chandra zaterdagochtend vroeg om 8 uur. Vanaf ongeveer 10 uur komen de gasten binnen, die onder hun leiding Buthaanse gerechten gaan koken. Halverwege de middag begint om vier uur de maaltijd. Iedereen mag zelf ook een bepaalde groente meenemen.

Founders of BCN divided the Bhutanese Community in The Netherlands

When the present regime of Bhutan which is known as the youngest democracy refused to take back its 20% of the Lhotshampa minority currently living in the UNHCR refuigee camps in Nepal, other countries in the world provided them the democratic right to live with dignity in the new country. About a hundred refugees were brought to The Netherlands in the year 2009. Within a few months a child was born in the transition camp in Amersfoort. Recently a second child was also born in a family originally from Gelegphu after they shifted to a new house from the transit camp.

Begining new life in Holland is however an opportunity to reinstate their normal life, it does not provide a permanent solution to the refugee problem. A human right leader of Nepal, pramod Kafley feels bad of their government not able to do anything the refugees actually wanted.The world's largest democratic nation, India fuelled this refugee problem owing to its support to the rulers of Bhutan giving preference to th…

Celebrating Brother - Sister Relationship

Celebrating borther-sister relationship is a part of Vedic culture observed most of the families who like this culture. It is observed with zeal in Indiain subcontinent, nowadays mostly in remote villages. Naamhat Boxtel promotes this and invited on 18th October about fifty Bhutanese and about 50 Nepalese living in The Netherlands to celebrate together. However only one of them gave the emphasis and its was celebrated -see Video.
Vedic culture embraces everyone to celebrate as one family. The belief isthat all the human beings are one family, including animals because everyone of us are but children of God. God is One however we call him in different names according to individuals'understanding and language. Relation is something special that remains eternal. Everthing on earth can one day ends up, but relationship is not a temporary bond. A mother is always a mother. A sister is always a sister. If the relationship is not repected the society fall in chaos and war breaks out. The …

19 Sept 09. The vedic literature provides the process to purify one's existence. This means purifying one's mind and body and the way he sees others, ie as the children of God, all as brothers and sisters. Purification should begin before the conception, thus before planning to have a child. That process is called garbadhan sanskar. It is performed in a typical way, with auspicious arrangements, time and circumstances and astrology. Usually a priest will be called for the ritual performance.

Hindu culture: Dacing like angels (Saaida Baaijen)

Saaida Baaijen a Dutch girl dancing Nepali dance.
Vedic cuture, the origin of Hindue culture is very much spiritual.  It appeals to inner beauty and purity and directs men to see everyone with love on the understanding that everyone is the part and parcel of God. God is one, and he is for every body. Just like there is one sun and it shines for everybody. People call God with different names just like different language gives the sun different names. Singing and dancing art came from the Sam veda. It inspires people to dress well. Nowadays dance is performed with half naked, erotic style - a degradation of culture or undercivilization. Vedic culture belongs to everybody because it is the origin, that the origin of mankind followed in the past. The more one diviates from Vedic culture community will divide and fall apart, hatret creeps and follows the war. Vedic culture if practiced will unite human races because it is God centered. Here a Dutch girl dances Nepali song although she does…

Vyaspuja

Vyas puja a ceremoney observed in honour and praise of Sr Vyasadeva, an incarnation of Sri Krsna. Vyasadev appeared in the begining of Kaliyuga ie. about five thousand ago. Untill that time the Vedic wisdom - the vedes which are revealed literatures by God remained in the form of Sruti and Smriti, literally means in memory and passed down in disciplic succession to the makind. Brahma received that wisdom for the first time from Krsna and he passed down to Narad and then so on to Vyasdev. Then Vyasadev thinking that the people of modern era will be very degraded in character, purity and memory or intelligence, he put it down in words, in sanskrit, so that people with less intelligence and memory power can recite and remember the God. Following this deed of Vyasadev, vyas puja cebration became part of Hindu culture. To honour Vyasdeva, disciples of the spritual masters observe the vyasa puja on the appearance day of their guru. Guru actually is the reprentative of Vysadev and expounds …

Body and mind and speach perfection

The perfection of human form of life begins with the perfect use of the senses. Let our mind always think of God Krishna, let our hands work for Him, lets go to visit the temples or discources and so on as Bhagavad Gita tells- Manmana bhava mad bhakto madyaji mam namskuru.  By engaging in this way men can attain higher consciousness, higher perfection. Otherwise only by eating, mating, defending and sleeping we can't be different from animals because only animals engages in those four activities and can't go further as men can if desired.The video here appeals in Nepali this message. You can see also some deities Srila Prabhupada has established all over the world.

Speech at UN by His Holiness Bhakti Caru Swami on Peace Process

Speech at United NationsThe following is the speech H.H. Bhakti Charu Swami gave at the United Nations Headquarters, New York City, NY, USA for the Panel Discussion on “Forgiveness: a pathway to human transformation”.For voice and details see www.bhakticharuswami.com
What I will present here today is the Vedic perspective of forgiveness and the appropriate means to cultivate and demonstrate that noble quality. Vedas is the wisdom that descended from the spiritual reality, since time immemorial – since the time of creation. Just as, along with a machine comes the operation manual describing what is the purpose of the machine and how to operate it, the Vedas describe the purpose of this material nature, how it functions and how we should achieve our desired goal here.


Vedas generally do not deal with the immediate effect, rather with the cause behind the effect. For example, the Vedic branch of medicine, “Ayurveda,” does not deal with the symptoms of the disease only, rather with its inhe…
