Japa retreat Radhadesh – 8th – 13th of June 2009

japa2009_1Dear Devotees and friends,

With great happiness I am inviting you to Japa Retreat, Level 2, which will take place in Radhadesh from Monday the June 8th (at 19:00) until Saturday June 13th, 2009.

Last year’s Japa Retreat in Radhadesh was wonderfully inspiring. The devotees felt such enthusiasm about their breakthrough experiences that we immediately decided to have Japa Retreat Level 2 in 2009.
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.

I am often asked the question: “Can I attend Japa Retreat Level 2 if I have not attended Japa Retreat Level 1?”
The answer is: Yes! Level 2 is organized in a manner that allows you to absorb the knowledge and skills of Level 1. We will first repeat and deepen our understanding of aligning body, mind, and heart with the Holy Names. Then we will expand on the knowledge and discover deeper ways of chanting. Therefore, even if you join the Japa Retreat at level 2, you will still be taken along the path.

A personal note: It is a great honour for me to facilitate these japa retreats all over the world. I would be most grateful if you come in great numbers so that we can create a powerful sanga (community) of committed chanters.

It is essential that you register early, since last year some persons could not be accommodated because they registered too late.


Wishing you the best,

Your servant
Sacinandana Swami
