Hare Krishna!

Please accept my humble obeisances

All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

I am writing to let you know about a 30 minute film that has been produced by devotees in London and Hungary which looks at the way the devotees in the New Vraja Dhama farm community are practically showing ‚Äúsimple living, high thinking‚ÄĚ.

The film highlights various aspects of the Krishna Conscious philosophy and lifestyle and includes Radha Krishna Prabhu, Tarun Krsna Prabhu and his wife Ati Sundari Devi dasi and other devotees talking about, among other things, self-sufficiency, chanting Hare Krishna, initiation and marriage.

You can see the film here:

A number of screenings of the film have been organised at Soho Street and in UK Universities already by Bhakta Alexey Prabhu (cc’d above) and we are trying to get the film out to as wide an audience as possible and if you think it would interest your readers please include it on your site.

This is the introduction to the film:

New Vraja Dhama or Krishna Valley as it is also known, is a 250 Hectare self-sufficient farm community south of Budapest established by the Hare Krishna devotees in 1993. Located about 30 Kms from the well known Lake Balaton, Krsna Valley is a beautiful natural environment where devotees practically display ‚Äúsimple living, high thinking‚ÄĚ - one of the mottoes of their society‚Äôs founder, His Divine Grace A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.

The mission of the residents of Krishna-valley is to create a varnasrama society centred around the service of the Lord, in which devotees may practice Krishna consciousness, living according to the principles of self sufficiency, depending on the land and the cows, educating their children in spiritual life - all with the goal of attaining pure love of God and inspiring others to follow their examples.

As society faces increasing pressures on rapidly dwindling resources the devotees at NVD are establishing a template for sustainable living which has at it‚Äôs heart the understanding that, as Gandhi put it ‚Äúthe world has enough for everyone‚Äôs need but not enough for everyone‚Äôs greed‚ÄĚ

By chanting Hare Krsna the devotees are able to develop an inner peace and contentment that naturally reduces the artificial and spiralling demands that consumer society impels us to meet. They are demonstrating how to Chant Hare Krsna and be happy.

I hope you like it!

Your servant,
