Preachers slow down a bit

Stage: Active

Campaign: Website & Community

Sannyasis and other travelling preachers stay a little longer, like a couple of weeks or a month or so, in each place.

Even if the longer stays are just for four months of the year, say at Chaturmasya, and for the rest of the year they make short stops...

This would help build communities, based on relationships.

It would be nice if advanced devotees in "bhakti" could assist devotees personally or by e-mail in their conceivement of devotional service .

We Need More Kirtan

Stage: Active

Campaign: Website & Community

We need more Kirtan. The following quote from Srila Gurudeva really clarifies for me the essence of WHAT needs to be facilitated for the sanga to naturally evolve and mature . Srila Gurudeva :-”It was mentioned earlier that smarana is the primary limb of raganuga-bhakti. But one should understand that smarana is dependent on kirtana. In the present age of Kali, it is the practice of kirtana that grants the eligibility ...more »

Seva Teams

Stage: Active

Campaign: Devotional Service/Seva

That Seva-teams idea be resurrected by an emphasis on achieving things for Srila Gurudeva. Our sanga is blessed with the highest association and tattvas - but the flow through to practical activity seems to need some encouragement, so that the best efforts of those who are 'doers' is supported and more 'pure bhakti' goals are acheived! If a devotee has some inspiration to achieve something for Srila Gurudeva, ...more »

congregational preaching

Stage: Active

Campaign: Preaching Centers

My sanga idea is based on creating strong society relationship. I believe that rather than focusing on brahmacaris/sannyasis/tapasya and so on the emphasis should be much more on grhasthas. I believe sanyasis/brahmacaris should be supported by congregation and visit regularly each householder and make a programs in their houses. I believe if everybody gives a bit of money, then the preaching can be organised well. I ...more »
