MAN-tra 2022: Together Again
By Mangalananda dasa   |  Aug 21, 2022

After two years of separation, MAN-tra is back in New Vrindaban, Sept. 9-11th, 2022.
While technology allowed the annual men’s retreat to go virtual over the past couple of years, and carry on with exciting seminars, performances, and discussions, and to have the association of Vaishnava men from around the world, nothing can replace the value of in-person, face-to-face devotee association.

“The MAN-tra retreat was born of a desire to build up spiritual comradery and to enhance the better qualities that men can deliver,” says HH Bhaktimarga Swami. “The intent also is to enhance their thoughtfulness and mode of goodness.”

The MAN-tra retreat, founded by HH Bhaktimarga Swami and Anuttama Prabhu in 2018, is organized to facilitate association and important dialogue between devotee men. Since its inception, hundreds of Vaishnava men of various ages and backgrounds have participated in the retreats with a desire to build meaningful relationships, better understand their role as men in Krishna consciousness, and have a confidential environment where they can openly discuss their personal challenges and experiences.
“Becoming Krishna conscious and performing our different roles in society as men is sometimes not as easy as it seems,” Anuttama Prabhu explains. “Coming together again gives us the chance to build friendship, learn from one another, and be strengthened in our Krishna conscious path as devotee men.”

Join the MAN-tra retreat in the transcendental realm of New Vrindaban for a weekend of male bonding, insightful seminars, ecstatic kirtans, and spiritual immersion. Visit Prabhupada’s Palace of Gold (with its refurbished domes) and other significant spots in the holy dham, gather around the bonfire at night, spend time with the cows, and make new friends. Key guests include HH Bhaktimarga Swami, Anuttama Prabhu, Partha Prabhu, Radhika Ramana Prabhu, Venkata Bhatta Prabhu, Gauravani Prabhu, and others!
