With great happiness we are inviting you to Bhaktivedanta College Japa Retreat 2018, which will take place in Radhadesh from Wednesday, June 25th (at 19:00) until Sunday, June 29th 2018.
Japa retreats are now being conducted in all parts of the world and are becoming more and more sought after by devotees and friends of Lord Krishna. Let me try to explain the magic of such a retreat.
It’s a truly transformational experience because the retreat offers much more than just some skills to help you to improve your chanting. It aims at improving your relationship with Radha and Krishna in Their most merciful forms of the Holy Name. Perhaps this is why japa retreats have become so popular.
What can you expect from a japa retreat
- Strengthening your inner connection to the Divine Couple
- New insights and techniques in relation to chanting the Holy Name
- A stronger commitment to offenseless chanting of the Holy Name
- Breakthrough experiences in chanting the Holy Name
- The opportunity to earn how to expand the boundaries of your spiritual life so that you can have deeper and more rewarding spiritual realisations.
In short, you can really increase your Krishna Consciousness.
