George Harrison and Hare Krishna

Despite The Beatles incredible fame and fortune, due to the pressures of touring and the constant attention from public and media, peace of mind and happiness had escaped them. So, in 1967 they travelled to Rishikesh. This trip to India was part of a sudden fascination of everything Indian by the vibrant and searching youth of the late 1960s.' Soon, however, The Beatles returned to London, developing a taste for the Vedic cultural spirituality, but not finding full satisfaction. George continued his search and meanwhile Shyamasundar das, Mukunda das and other disciples of Srila Prabhupada moved to London in order to establish a temple.
In 1969, both George and Shyamasundar das had their wishes fulfilled when they met at a function at Apple Records. After spending some time together, George invited Shyamasundar das to his house and the relationship began from there. When Srila Prabhupada arrived in Britain both George and John were deeply impressed by him. Once, on a car journey fr…

In de voetsporen van George Harrison kwam er Michel uit Belgie

Pas je talent in de dienst van God, en dat wordt beschouwd als een devotioneeldienst of Bhakti. Een talentvolle toegewijde uit Belgie, Bhakta Michel Theunissen bezochte Naamhat Boxtel met zijn zon Kevin prabhu en heeft voor Krsna enkele liedjes gezongen. Nu begon hij in de voetsporen van George Harrison met zijn eigen album ter verering van Krishna . Bhakta Michel schrijft het volgende: 
 ..Wel het is zo dat ik, 'johnny tiger' me ook aangetrokken voel tot het hindoeïsme, net zoals George Harrison deed.In 1970 schreef George 'my sweet Lord' en droeg dit lied op aan Krishna,
Ik heb namelijk ook 8 songs 'for Krishna' geschreven en we zijn deze aan het opnemen in een studio in Nijmegen, namelijk in 'berg en dal' bij Leo Devadatta. In het totaal heb ik dus 12 songs geschreven, en hiervan gaan we er nog 4 opnemen,'De ruwe compositie' , van enkele van deze eigen ‘songs for Krishna' enkel met gitaar begeleiding kan u beluisteren uit mijn blog.

A Pakisthani's prayers are fulfilled by Lord Sri Jaganath

March 17/12.  'Yes, come to me! I can do anything and everything for you'. ''These are the words of assurance  I got the Lord speaking within me and are realized practically'', said Nomita a Pakisthani lady whose prayers are fulfilled by their Lordship Sri Jaganath Baladev and Subhadra and Sri Radhamadanamohan, the deities of Naamhat Boxtel.

A few months earlier Nomita came to this Vedic cultural program with her sister and her two daughters. She was feeble and appear frustrated. She told that she has been trying to get her husband Ramesh reunited in The Netherlands. But eight years of efforts did not result to anything. She borrowed loan of about three thousand Euro and paid the lawyer who is pursuing the family reunion. The answer she gets is that; 'you have to have a job, good income and a large house to have your husband reunited with you'. This was next to impossible since Nomita has little children to look after and no job any more after she was r…

Gross Overall Happiness through Mahamantra

If you ask me for the talisman that can make you happy, healthy and rich, I will recommend the divine talisman, the touchstone for your soul and that is the Mahamantra: Hare Krishna Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna Hare Hare. Hare Rama Hare Rama, Rama Rama Hare Hare. This mantra is the concluding essence of the Vedas. This mantra is the real Gyan or knowledge. This mantra opens up your divine eye. Chant this mantra and you feel the reaity.
When I first landed in Holland from a remote country, the Kingdom of Bhutan, I found myself in hell. I had no one, no money, no more cloth than what I was wearing- a trouser with holes at my back, a shirt and a jacket given by someone in the street. I was bereaved from my families and countrymen and dropped in the strange place that is totally opposite to where I was grown up.
By fortune and also thorough my own efforts and enthusiasm to Vedic culture, one day I met a devotee of ISKCON.  Then onwards my life began to change to better. My overall conditio…

Nepalese asylum seeker in The Netherlands seeks the shelter of Krishna

'At times of frustation and difficulties I like to do Japa and then I experiance peace in my mind', says Karna Hamal a regular visitor of the Naamhat Boxtel. He says, ' when I chant Hare Krishna Mahamantra, I feel that my problems are insignificant ones and won't devastate my life;. This realization is indeed the begining of self realization- that one need to purify and spiritualize ones' existence by reciting the Holy name; the dharma of this modern age of quarrel, the kali yuga. 

In my line of duty at the Home Ministry, I met Karna Hamal few years ago going back to his camp after his asylum hearing. Knowing by appearance that he is a Nepali, I spoke with him and inquired if he likes to visit a temple. He agreed and came to Naamhat Boxtel together. Getting along for few days gave the understanding that among the millions of Nepalese spread all over the world, Karna appeared to me terribly simple person. So simple that he can't express his own problems in good a…
