Chanting

Japa is a special time when we meditate on the holy names of Radha and Krishna. Just like the yogi meditating in the forest, we sit down with a focused mind, like he does with his half-closed eyes to avoid distractions. During japa, we listen carefully to the Hare Krishna mahamantra and don’t do anything else. 

Srila Prabhupada tells us that the mahamantra means, “Oh Hare! Oh Krishna! Oh Rama! Please engage me in Your service.” Hare represents Srimati Radharani, Krishna is the all-attractive Lord, and Rama is the source of happiness. When we chant, we’re calling out to Krishna, asking for His mercy and to be engaged in His service forever. 

Check out these videos of japa workshops by His Grace Mahatma Prabhu. He shares helpful tips and explains why chanting is important for our Krishna conscious life.

Nrsimhadeva — My Protector: A Festival Kit

Haribol, dear children!


The wonderful appearance of Lord Nrisimhadeva is here. Would you like to fill your days remembering this magnificent incarnation of Lord Krishna? He has appeared just to protect a little devotee like you. So, we have prepared a special festival kit about Lord Nrisimhadeva!


It has stories, drama, crafts, colouring pages, fun activities like puzzles and games. And you can also learn to play the famous Nrisimhadeva prayer on the harmonium from it!

Gauranga, The Dancing Lord – A Festival Kit

Hare Krishna dear parents and children!

We are excited to offer you a NEW festival kit about Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu.

I’m sure you all know that the Supreme Personality of Godhead came “undercover” in Kali yuga, taking the beautiful golden colour of Srimati Radharani and Her mood of separation from Krishna. In this incarnation He taught us how to be a devotee of Krishna and He gave freely love for Krishna to everyone!

Did you know He used to do many naughty things as a small boy? Or that He was a brilliant student? Find many interesting stories about Him and have fun doing all the activities prepared in this Festival Kit!
