After a whole week of bodily & mentally tiring work, why not use your Sundays to refresh yourself by bathing in Vedic spiritual wisdom and recreation? After that, a tasty and healthy international vegetarian feast will be served.
First held in 1966 at the request of Srila Prabhupada (founder of the Hare Krishna Movement), the Sunday Love Feast has evolved as an integrated celebration of Lord Krishna’s pastimes: chanting, hearing spiritual knowledge, dancing, eating, fellowship and generally sharing the bliss of God’s presence.
A Sunday Love Feast is now held in nearly 400 temples worldwide. Anyone can come regardless of beliefs as we welcome all into an experience of Love.
When : Every Sunday. Contact your local temple for specific times in your area
Where : ISKCON Temples and Centre’s – locally and worldwide
Who: Everyone is invited to attend
Cost : None
What to wear : Nice but casual
In the Bhagavad-gita it is said : “This knowledge is the king of education, the most secret of all secrets. It is the purest knowledge, and because it gives direct perception of the self by realization, it is the perfection of spirituality. It is ever increasingly blissful, and joyfully performed.”
As we gather we are led in prayers to the temple deities, then hear a talk on the Bhagavad Gita. What follows is an ecstatic kirtan (call-and-response chant to Krishna and Rama), which may spontaneously include blissful dancing to the chant. After closing prayers, we honor a delicious Indian-style feast and continued conversation amongst the attendees.
