At the end of January we held the opening night of the Meditation Hut in Torquay. The event was well attended by a group of sincere seekers on the spiritual path. We meditated together, chanted the Hare Krishna mantra, discussed important meditation tips and finished with a sumptuous vegetarian/vegan feast. Our next gathering will be on February 19th, and promises to be as enlightening as the first!
On Sunday at Hare Krishna Valley we celebrated our annual Festival of the Cows, which was attended by around 400 guests. After offering our respects to our herd of cows, we went to the spring and took shelter under the shade of the trees. There we all enjoyed two dramas performed by some of our local actors, and a description of the glories of cow protection by our special guest, His Holiness Kadamba Kanan Swami.
