The Sunday ‘Love Feasts’ go back to the very beginning of Srila Prabhupada’s ISKCON period, which began in the mid-1960’s. He introduced this weekly festival as part of his overall preaching program.
The Founder Acarya of the Hare Krishna Movement, Srila Prabhupada started the “Sunday Love Feast” in 1966. He would personally invite guests, cook entire meal. He would serve the devotees a variety of tasty Indian-vegetarian preparations. Along with the vegetarian feast, Srila Prabhupada would sing the Hare Krishna Maha-mantra with the guests, dance and give a lecture on Bhagavad-gita.
Since then, this weekly Sunday Love Feast Festival is celebrated in all the Hare Krishna Temples around the world. It has evolved as an integrated celebration of Lord Krishna’s pastimes: chanting, hearing spiritual knowledge, dancing, eating, fellowship and generally sharing the bliss of God’s presence. Anyone can come regardless of beliefs as we welcome all into an experience of Love.
We would like to invite you to our weekly Sunday ‘Love Feast’. Every Sunday evening, spiritual-seekers gather for a culturally rich and vibrant experience of traditional spiritual culture which provides a flavour of Bhakti yoga – the yoga of love!
Festivities kick off with kirtan (musical mantra mediation) and continue with more chanting, drumming, a spiritual discourse and a free vegetarian feast served to all attendees!
When: Every Sunday
Where: Temple Room
Who: Open and welcome to both congregants and newcomers alike.
We extend a warm invitation to both the spiritually-seasoned and the somewhat curious to come and “feed your soul” at the Hare Krishna Sunday “Love” Feast!
