Sankirtan Festival

29th Dezember 2022 - 1st January 2023


The yearly Sankirtan Festival is a spiritual gathering after a month of austerity for the mission of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and for devotees who want to start a new year in association with other devotees by worshipping the Lord.


As Krishna says in the Bhagavad Gita 18.68-69

“For one who explains the supreme secret to the devotees, devotional service is guaranteed, and at the end he will come back to Me.

There is no servant in this world more dear to Me than he, nor will there ever be one more dear.”
