“Happy Growers” for all…

Hare Krishna,

As the spring is coming, we would like to invite both our  devotees as well as well wishers  and volunteers to become “happy growers”. We have land available to be used by those who are interested in eating healthily and offering healthy food to Krishna. You could also support our efforts to grow food for Krishna by donating towards this project and thus supporting us. We need to invest around 2000£ in building poly-tunnels etc. It is a great opportunity to be engaged in nice service and also get a taste of simple living on the land. Being able to grow may soon be the most important skill… If you are interested, pls let us know and we will discuss the details together. Our simple, general rule is:

  • you grow on Krishna’s land and give 25% of the crop to Krishna, or more if you like. The rest is for your own use.
  • you give donation towards our simple living investments, you are always welcome to come and we will offer something in exchange of your loving offering, and remember, Krishna will reciprocate with you within your heart, that is for sure.
  • you come and help in the garden and we feed you with prasadam and you go home very happy, and we have some kirtan together before you disappear…

AND REMEMBER YOU ARE ALWAYS WELCOME, YOU CAN CONTACT US AND WE WILL TEACH YOU WHAT WE KNOW OURSELVES AND SHARE WHATEVER WE CAN

Volunteer for ecstatic wood collection in the divine forests of Sri Sri Radha Govinda!

Dear devotees and friends,

 

We r going to have a two weeks event of wood collection from Radha Govinda’s forest. Everyone is welcome to come and help. The whole work will be overseen by Madhava Krshna das and Trilokatma das Prabhus. There is plenty of wood on the island, which is already dried (it may be wet from the rain, but once stored in a woodshed it will dry up very quickly) and almost ready to use. We would like to collect as much as possible to prepare for the winter and thus engage the energy of the forest in the service of Sri Krishna and His devotees. Extatic prasadam and place to sleep provided. If you feel like coming just let us know by calling 028 6772 38 78. We can collect you from Deryllin if you come by bus. Morning program and japa in association of devotees! You can’t find a better offer anywhere, and it is all free! Real retreat! Back to nature, back to Krishna!  You can come for a day or a week or two, whatever, every help is needed and appreciated.

We would like to thank all well-wishers and the devotees for their kind offerings towards meeting our winter struggles. By Krishna’s grace the winter has not been too severe so far and our service to Their Lordships is going on smoothly. We still have few months to go before spring fully manifests it’s gentle nature, we welcome and appreciate your support. It helps us not only to survive the winter but also in preaching the glories of the Lord and bringing Krishna consciousness to others. So far we have  used more than 10 tones of wood to keep the temple and the ashram residents  warm and it was possible with the contributions from these kind souls:

Babu Rajendra Prasad Bodi ,Sonitra Singh, Aditya Vaishya, Kumara Rudraraju, Lawrence Chettiar, Alex Krasnakov, Olegas Trilupovas, Nigel Telford, Sabareesan Nair, Kevin Boyle, Sri Rupa das, Haridas Thakur das, Nandagrama Mahidhara dasi, Jaya Gauranga das, Jaggannatha Suta das, Simha Gaura dasa, Mitra hari das.

Thank you very, very much again and please remember that we are very happy to serve you here, so visit us at any time. We are open every day and we are meant to serve you with Kirtan, Krishna katha and Prasadam. If you cannot come and visit but you live in Ireland, we could visit you, if you so desire, just let us know…

You can also order Srila Prabhupada’s books from our temple. These are not ordinary books, they give an end to all material suffering and infuse the reader’s heart with inspiration and great feelings of purification! Just by reading these books, your life will be a success!

Patron program??? This is a great idea…

Sometimes we may think: “how could I serve Krishna in a practical way in situation that I am in?  It is so difficult, I have a job, and family and so many things to do… and I have no time and… problems… and… ”

So, maybe it is true, that there is not much time, and that you have a job, and a family, and so many responsibilities, it is all true, but the fact is that you could still be connected to Sri Sri Radha Govinda in a nice service mood by becoming one of the patrons.Lord Krishna says Himself that if :

“If you cannot take to this practice, then engage yourself in the cultivation of knowledge. Better than knowledge, however, is meditation, and better than meditation is renunciation of the fruits of action, for by such renunciation one can attain peace of mind.”

We already have around 60 active patrons who make an effort to give some fruits of their activities to Krishna in a way which is suitable for them in  their own situation. So it is very easy, it is enough if you just choose an option for yourself and send us your details with the amount that you wish to offer. So far we have three categories for everyone to choose from. So basically there is an option for:

Bronze – from 25 to 50 euro or sterling a month

Silver- from 51 to 107 euro or sterling a month

Gold- from 108 to 1008 euro or sterling a month

You can find out the details Here

And here are few verses you can meditate a bit more on, just see what Krishna says about such fortunate souls who decide to act in a more devotional frame of mind.

“If you cannot take to this practice, then engage yourself in the cultivation of knowledge. Better than knowledge, however, is meditation, and better than meditation is renunciation of the fruits of action, for by such renunciation one can attain peace of mind.”


“The steadily devoted soul attains unadulterated peace because he offers the result of all activities to Me; whereas a person who is not in union with the Divine, who is greedy for the fruits of his labor, becomes entangled.”


“One who acts in devotional service, renouncing the fruits of his actions, and whose doubts have been destroyed by transcendental knowledge, is situated factually in the self. Thus he is not bound by the reactions of work, O conqueror of riches.”


“O Dhananjaya, keep all abominable activities far distant by devotional service, and in that consciousness surrender unto the Lord. Those who want to enjoy the fruits of their work are misers.”


“It is indeed impossible for an embodied being to give up all activities. But he who renounces the fruits of action is called one who has truly renounced.”
