Sri Sri Radha Gopinatha’s 44th installation anniversary
So we have entered 2021 and said our goodbyes to the ‘memorable’ 2020 (Gaura Purnima being our actual Gaudiya Vaisnava new year). No doubt the material energy will continue to throw all sorts of challenges at us in 2021, but as fortunate souls engaged in devotional service to Lord Krsna, we will continue in our endeavors to engage in His service in whatever ways and means we each can. A devotee doesn’t care if they are in heaven or hell, as long as they have some devotional service to do to offer to the Lord.
Ecole Communale de Borlon was invited to spend the day at Radhadesh to see the ongoing projects. The Greenhouse project was a perfect link for the school to spend a full day with us.
Prabhupāda: “My idea is that all our centers should be self-supported. We do not like that idea that for your support you have to go 100 miles to get your bread. That is a very dangerous drawback. You produce your food locally and then support yourself. The main problem is what to eat, where to sleep. So we get some place and support ourselves by producing our own food….”
During the Damodara month, the devotees of Krishna offer a lamp in prayer to the Lord, to ask for protection and to answer other desires. Even though the world is going through a difficult period, you can have the ability to offer your lamp from the comfort of your home, against a small donation.
I am Dharma. The alpha and the protector of my family. My fur is a light golden-brown and is always perfectly brushed. Although I am the strongest and largest of my family, in reality I am always peaceful. I love being brushed and walking in our various meadows here...
We leven in onzekere tijden. Het is een periode waarin we misschien bewuster kunnen kiezen voor meer associatie met toegewijden en ook met Krishna zelf. Door naar de wereld te kijken vanuit Heer Krishna’s perspectief kunnen we meer Krishna-bewust worden. Als we bewuster willen worden moeten we ons meer verdiepen in Heer Krishna zelf.
After a few days, I began to understand that the time limit was part of the austerity of the yajna. It added a nuance of sense control and quality to the offering. If you only have one hour, every mantra counts. There’s no time to jam, or experiment, or play. This is serious business. Going overtime would be almost akin to tasteless decadence.
Radhadesh celebrates Janmashtami annually with around 2000-3000 people attending. How does it function during a pandemic?

It is with great relief to say that we finally got all the doors fully opened in Radhadesh last Tuesday. And it was even more a relief to see that so many nice guests came. Especially by Sunday, there was a steady flow of guests crossing our front lawns, all eager to...
It will certainly be a slow start as most of our groups and events have been cancelled until the end of Summer. However we do hope to host as many guests as desire to come to Radhadesh. Please note though that one of the parameters of reopening is that we still keep the required 1,5m distance with guests & and people we are not regularly in contact with. Read here about the updates regarding our decisions about festivals and events.
The Belgium Government has finally given some light at the end of the tunnel which gives us the opportunity to partially reopen our doors to guests, devotees, and families that wish to come to Radhadesh.
