Satsang/sankirtan yagya

'Sankirtan of Satsang is iets dat ik in Nederland hard heb gezogd'  zie een Bhutaanse afkomstige toegewijda- zonder deze gelegenheid heb ik geen gelukkige gevoel. Zij kwam uit een stroom die als een Manava Dharma genoemd. Zij ziet geen verschill tuseen de vaisnava traditie van sankirtanan yagya- een zuiveringsprocess en het onwikkeling van het hogere bewustzijn. Een andere nieuwe bezoekers voor het december Naamhat programma waren twee jongens uit Nepal. Ze vonden deze als een bijzonderedag, een thuisgevoel.

Ondanks het slechte weer was deze Vedische programma van 19 december gewoon doorgegaan met de transcendentale, muziek en vegetarischemaaltijd. Een belangrijke verse uit de Bhagavad Gita Zoals Ze Is, hoofdstuk 3 was uitgelegd waarin staat aangeven dat men moeten Yagya  doen voor de voorzieningen ze het van de natuur mogen krijgen.

The food that promotes the mode of goodness

The food that promotes in human the mode of goodness are those prepared out of grains, flower, fruits, nuts ans vegetables further made tasteful with milk product and spices excluding onion and garlic. No products produced out of killing another sentient being can promote the mode of goodness but passion and ignorance only. That is why vegetarian food is the best because in contrary to the acts the mode of passion urges for undertaking fight, rage, sex, hankering, madness, including destruction of self and the society, the food prepared in the mode of goodness and then offered to the Lord who has bestowed the food grains for the mankind gets removed from the karmic reactions attached to it. In the Naamhat Dhaam we invite people to learn vegetarian cooking and eat together with everyone irrespective of the background and faith. Peace can be maintained in the society only when the mode of goodness to pure goodness can be cultivated in the human beings.

Peace prevails only from the cooperation between the controller and the controlled!

9th July, Boxtel. Peace on earth can be maintained only through the good service attitude between the controller and the controlled. This is aserted in the Bhagavad Gita. Men should perform yagya in order to satisfy the the demigods; the devatas who are the controler of the different departments of the creation of the God, for example rain, air, earth, natural resources etc. Jus like if the beneficiaries of the electric supply at homes pays the monthly bill of their consumption, the energy department of the state shall continue supplying the electricity. In the same way people needs to perform yagya- the fire sacrifice ceremoney in every auspicious days so that the demigods will be satisfied and continue to shower the natural resource supply in a proper way. By doing this the life on earth will enjoy peace and happness.

In view of this the Naamhat Dhaam of Boxtel performed peace fire ceremoney praying to the demigods and goddesses so that there will be adequate supply of the need for t…

Jagannath is for everybody

Grond in Laakhaven voor eerste nieuwbouw hindoetempel in Den Haag


Rotterdam (HLM)
10 maart 2010 Wethouder Norder (Bouwen en Wonen) biedt de vertegenwoordigers van bestaande hindoetempels in Den Haag 4000 m2 grond aan voor een nieuwbouw mandir (hindoetempel). De bouwgrond ligt op de punt van de 1ste van der Kunststraat en de Waldorpstraat in Laakhaven. Met dit aanbod gaat de wethouder in op een verzoek van de hindoetempels, georganiseerd in de Werkgroep Nieuwbouw Mandirs voor Den Haag, onder voorzitterschap van Rajesh Ramnewash. De mandirs zijn nu gevestigd in verbouwde garages en benedenwoningen. De voorzieningen zijn niet meer toereikend voor het groeiend aantal bezoekers. Ook voldoen de tempelruimtes niet aan het uitvoeren van rituelen.

Hindoes reageren verheugd Het initiatief en het streven van de heer Ramnewash (net raadslid voor de PvdA) om als hindoegemeenschap als eenheid naar buiten te treden, verdient zeker navolging. Hij reageert verheugd op het nieuws. ‘We zijn twee maande…

Peace fulrmula is in the Vedic scriptures

Everyone is in search of peace and happiness. In pursuit if this they, the convert into another forms religion, but the true formula for peace and happiness is already given in the vedic scriptures.This was the message given at the vedic cultural program on 3rd Saturday of March 2010 in Boxtel. More than 30 people participated in the program led by Sri Viswaroop prabhu.
To attain peace, one has to consider three things: ie try to realize who you are,  who God is, and what your relation or duty towards God. In simple words, one has to understand that everyone is part and parcel of God. Being a part, the duty s to serve the whole- that is to God with loving devotional service. Through that understanding and the service rendered in love, one derives happiness. Now, one has to understand who God is. Many leteratures and philosophers and preachers from differnt platform and faith has defined God differently. Owing to this the whole purpose of religious pursuis is misled. God is indeed one w…

Ujjain; the center of India spreading vedic wisdom

Nitya Nanda Triyodashi that fell on 28th January this year, is the commemorating day that began more than six centuries ago when the supreme personality of Godhead Sri Krishna appeared as a devotee in the mood of Radha with his entourage. The emminent among the entourage was Sri Nitya Nanda prabhu. He is also understood as Sri Sesha in the Vedic satyayug, Laxman in the century of Sri Ram and Baladev in Dwaper yug when Krishna the supreme God descended from his spiritual abode- Golok galaxy to this material universe, in His original transcendental form.  To glorify Sri Krishna's pasttimes Nityananda established a system of kirtan called sankirtan that embraces men of all races and faiths to gloryfy the supremem God collectively.
Srila Prabhupada brought that tradition of sankirtan, the yuga dharma of this age to the western world in the late 20th century. He built 108 temples arround the world. He wrote many vedic literatures, one of which the Bhagavad Gita As It Its is being use…

Ignorance of SIN causes violation (16th Jan program)

In this modern age, the problem of every kind are caused due to men's forgetfulness or ignorance of sin. What can be called as sin and why one should not commit sin is the issuse ignored in the modern academic pursuit. Ignorance or forgetfulness of this vital norm is the cause of all the problems, like terrorism, human rights violations, environmental pollution etc. In other words, people's disinterest in transcendental knowledge as mentioned truely in The Bhagavad Gita and such holy scriptures. This was discussed in the montlhly Vedic cultural program in the first month of the year. However one can be very sinful that accumulates through the the violation of natural laws and societal norms like killing, eating meat, illicit sex and hurting others which will eventually result to bad reactions- every action has equal and opposit reaction, as scientists say, getting bad reactioins will be quickly avoided if one believes and surrenders to the Lord Krsna. This has been explained i…

A devotee saw Lord Krishna

A Belgian vaisnava devotee, Lalassamayi saw the Lord Krishna last Sunday personally and went with Him back to the spiritual kingdom of God. At the time of leaving her body, she streched her hands to touch something that others did not see. Another devotee attending her, asked if she has seen something. Lalassamayi replied replied: ' yes can't you see! here Krishna has come'. She narrated that she saw bright light in the room that made her turn towards it. And there was Krishna himself, came to take His pure devotee back to Golok- the top most universe in the spiritual realm. Thus the facts as is told in the Bhagavad Gita 4.9 never fails. Sri Krishna said to Arjun thus: janma karma ca me divyam, evam yo vetti tattvatah, tyaktva deham punar janma naiti mam eti so 'rjuna. This means One who knows the transcendental nature of My appearance and activities does not, upon leaving the body, take his birth again in this material world, but attains My eternal abode, O Arjuna.La…
