What do we offer?

We offer you a week filled with remarkable Hari-katha delivered by esteemed speakers who themselves deeply relish the mellows of Bhakti-rasa and who eagerly want to share their profound realizations with us. Throughout the day, and especially in the evenings, we will engage in captivating kirtans, allowing us to chant and dance with joy. Ample opportunities will be provided for contemplation and association with fellow sincere spiritual seekers, as well as relishing delicious prasadam.

Our retreat will delve into the question:

'How can we enter into and immerse ourselves in bhajan?'

All the speakers will draw insights and realizations from the sacred text, Sri Radha-rasa sudhanidhi (The Nectarine Moon of Sri Radhika's Sweetness). Through this shared focus, the participants will have the opportunity to develop a deep appreciation for the subtle and profound inner meanings of Sri Sri Radha and Krishna's eternal pastimes. Our heartfelt desire is that this retreat will guide all participants towards the ultimate goal of life: the eternal and loving service of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu in Sri Navadvipa Dhama, and Sri Sri Radha and Krishna in Sri Vrindavan Dhama, under the guidance of Sri Gurudeva and all the divine associates of the Divine Couple.

We are honored to present the following speakers:

  •     Sri Acyutalal Bhattaji
  •     Sri Pundrik Goswami
  •     Sri Prema Prayojana Prabhu

In addition, we are privileged to have the presence of honorable guest speakers, including Srimati Syamarani dasi, Sripad Sadhu Maharaja, and others.

Radha-rasa sudhanidhi, Verse 1

I offer my obeisances unto Lord Gauracandra, who is surrounded by all His associates and whose body is studded with goosepimples of ecstasy that mock the beauty of blossoming Kadamba flowers. He raises His arms, repeatedly and loudly crying 'Hari! Hari!' as He dances and sings, showering the surface of the earth with cascades of tears.

हरे कृष्ण हरे कृष्ण | कृष्ण कृष्ण हरे हरे |
हरे राम हरे राम | राम राम हरे हरे
