May 2nd, 2023: 2023, Portland Tour!
Dear devotees and friends:
I am excited to announce our return to the Baltic Sea coast in Poland with Viva Kultura’s 2023 ‘Festival of India’ tour.
We are eagerly awaiting the opportunity to spread Lord Caitanya’s mercy during such a critical time in human history.
The festivals officially begin on the 30th of June and end on the 20th of August. We openly invite all Vaisnavas, from any part of the world, who are eager to participate in this glorious Krishna Conscious outreach endeavor to come and join us.
There are many departments in which one can get involved: from the stage show (musicians, actors, dancers) to kirtans and harinams, the kitchen crew, gopi dots tent, loading crew, festival set up team etc. We welcome anyone and everyone! If you know someone who may be interested please let them know.
From the 1st to the 23th of June our artists will be rehearsing and from the 24th of June our accommodation will be available at our base. Devotees who are not rehearsing are welcome to join us from the 24th of June.
We will be staying in one large school, as per our usual arrangements, and we will venture out 6 days a week to the respective cities and towns in the area.
The tour is a wonderful opportunity to experience the natural beauty of Poland’s famous Baltic Sea coast, make new friends and enjoy a festival every day! Don’t miss this blissful opportunity!
If you are interested in joining us and would like to know more, feel free to contact our expert managers
Nandini and Jayatam.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
With affectionate regards,
May 3rd, 2023: Prahalad Maharaj Prayers
“Prahlada Maharaja loudly chanted the holy name of Lord Nrisimha. May Lord Nrisimhadeva, roaring for His devotee, Prahlada Maharaja, protect us from all fear of dangers created by stalwart leaders in all directions through poison, weapons, water, fire, air, and so on. May the Lord cover their influence by His own transcendental influence. May Nrisimhadeva protect us from all directions and in all corners, above, below, within and without.”
(Srimad Bhagavatam 6.8.34)
