A wonderful week of hearing, chanting, dancing, Prasadam, and more…

Warm thanks to our esteemed guest speakers, who kindly graced us with their presence:

  • HIS HOLINESS BHAKTI VIKASA SWAMI
  • HIS HOLINESS DANAVIR GOSWAMI
  • HIS GRACE MANIDHARA PRABHU

Some of the topics covered included:

  • how to follow Srila Prabhupada strictly
  • how to engage in the missionary activities of saving the whole world by distributing Srila Prabhupada’s books

This was without a doubt one of the best events at Krishna Island since we opened doors 26 years ago. (more…)

THE PASTIME OF THE APPEARANCE OF LORD KRISHNA

The Advent of Lord Krsna

Once the world was overburdened by the unnecessary defense force of different kings, who were actually demons but were posing themselves as the royal order. At that time, the whole world became perturbed, and the predominating deity of this earth, known as Bhumi, went to see Lord Brahma to tell of her calamities due to the demoniac kings. Bhumi assumed the shape of a cow and presented herself before Lord Brahma with tears in her eyes. She was bereaved and was weeping just to invoke the lord’s compassion. (more…)

The appearance day of Lord Balarama! Please come!!!

Hare Krishna

Dear devotees, spiritual seekers, friends and guests!

This Thursday we are going to celebrate the appearance day of Lord Balarama, and winning His favor and mercy is essential on the path of spiritual enlightenment. Without Him there is no way to make spiritual progress! We will start wtih kirtan and hear His glories as well! We will also drink Balarama’s Varuni and swing Radha Govinda, this is the last day to do it! PLs don’t hesitate to come and join us in this most uplifting spiritual event! Hare Krishna!

Who is Lord Balarama?

*****************
The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krishna, is the fountainhead of all incarnations. Lord Balarama is His second body. They are both one and the same identity. They differ only in form. Balarama is the first bodily expansion of Krishna, and He assists in Lord Krishna’s transcendental pastimes. He is the source of the entire spiritual world and is the adi-guru, the original spiritual master. (more…)
