From Sacinandana Swami and Yadunandana Swami:
Dear devotees, Dear friends Please accept our best wishes and heartfelt greetings. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
It is with the greatest happiness that we invite you to our ‘Bhakti Inspiration Retreat’, which is based on the five most powerful processes of bhakti-yoga: chanting the Holy Names, hearing Srimad Bhagavatam, associating with devotees, worshiping the Deity, and living in a holy place like Mathura. This retreat will be held in New Vrajamandala, Spain, on 15th, 16th and 17th August, 2010.
It will be different from other experiences of lectures and festivals in that besides exploring the philosophical truths of Krishna consciousness, we will immediately apply what we learn through practical exercises. Thus we will not simply gather information, but learn to open ourselves up to divine guidance and blessings.
We are so excited about this retreat because we foresee that anyone who attends it will have deep Krishna conscious experiences that will stay with them for a long time.
Amongst the many spiritual treasures you can expect are:
* learning how to make a tangible and lasting connection with the Lord through the most efficient methods of bhakti-yoga - focusing especially on bhajan and kirtan.
* highly experiential classes, aiming at providing all participants with breakthrough experiences and a deep transformation at all levels.
* many other exciting realizations in a highly inspiring “Community of Learners” I know this sounds almost too good to be true, - but judging from the feedback we have received from previous retreats, such a transformation is possible!
