The Bhaktivedanta Vaisnavi Gurukul joins the 14th annual Vrindakund festival and kalash yatra where the ladies carried the pots on their heads with coconuts. The nagar kirtan parade started from Sri Pavan Sarovar and walks around the streets of Nandgaon, that delighted the brajvasis and went up to the Sri Nanda Bhavan . The party went inside the temple for ecstatic kirtan. The Gurukul girls danced in euphoria led by their school principal Kalavati mataji. From Nanda bhavan the procession continues down to Vrindakund while the students from Bhaktivedanta Vaisnavi Gurukul started leading the harinam sankirtan. In Vrindakund His Grace Dina Bandu prabhu gave a wonderful stories about Vrindadevi, Gupta kund, Vrindakund and Nandgaon. The program was concluded by an arti on the temple and with delectable prasadam distribution for everyone.

“Make A Change”

I see it on the streets
As we walk right by
What little value
we place on human lives!

But it’s time we get priorities
It’s time to rearrange
Won’t turn my back any longer
It’s time we make a change!

END POVERTY AND HUNGER NOW!
SUPPORT US TO CONTINUE PROVIDING FREE EDUCATION AND NUTRITION TO THE UNDERPRIVILEGED GIRLS OF BRAJ.

ONE FAMILY

one

“One Family”
I have so much anticipation
for the future generations
I think kids today are growing up smart
with open minds and open hearts.

A world filled with racial stress
but it seems every year less and less
those old fashioned standards are going away
tomorrow will be a brighter day !

So if you agree and want to help
first you must look inside yourself
because unity begins with just us two
then we’ll watch it spread to all of you.

we can do it
we’ll put our heads to it
and then we’ll be
one family !

The students of Bhaktivedanta Vaisnavi Gurukul chants the Hare Krishna maha-mantra every morning.

I NEED YOUR SHELTER.

Earth can be a lonely place
Blank stares on the people’s face
I contemplate their pointless chase
That traps me and my friends
Is this the place where I belong?
Where did we go wrong?
Will it last real long?
Are you too singing this song?
Sometimes I feel it
Sometimes I feel all so alone
And yes yes I must confess
I feel so far from home
Mantra take me home I trust you
Mantra take me home
Take me to the place where I belong
Life’s a puzzle the thoughtful solve
But most choose not to get involved
Because of this we don’t envolve
Just look around my friend
And life’s meaning can be hard to grasp
All that’s certain is it won’t last
We’re all spirits looking for transcendence
Oh mantra grant me that independence.
