The sharp growth in online video consumption suggests the people of the world are becoming more enraptured by visual content than anything else. But for teachers of the ancient Vedic tradition, sound is seen as capable of having a much deeper transformational effect on a human being.
Things of this world do not have the capability to satisfy our heart; in fact it makes us more impure. Our heart can be cleansed only if we bring Krishna in our life, our heart’s hunger can only be satiated if we enthrone Krishna in our heart.

Moscow’s first ever Kirtan Mela, which ran from Friday January 30th to Sunday February 1st, drew nearly 2,000 devotees from around Russia – and it was a colorfuly uplifting affair on a grand scale. The event was organized by Saraswati Dasi after ISKCON guru Bhakti Bringa Govinda Swami, inspired by a “Mantra Yoga” program he attended in Moscow, expressed the desire to participate in more outreach programs there.
Around 1,500 devotees from all over the U.S., Canada, and South America attended the fifth annual Festival of the Holy Name in Alachua, Florida this Thanksgiving Weekend from November 28th to 30th. The increase in popularity of the homegrown, gurukuli-organized festival each year despite a total absence of advertising shows the power of word-of-mouth from attendees who’ve had a truly lifechanging experience.
God, out of His unlimited love for us, makes Himself easily available to us in a portable form that we can literally carry on our tongue-tip.
The event was first launched by ISKCON’s Governing Body Commission in 1996 as a one-day celebration to commemorate 100 years since ISKCON Founder Srila Prabhupada’s birth. It was lengthened to a week-long event in 2008, and has been held every year since. Scheduled for September 5th through 15th this year, WHNW will be packed with sacred Vaishnava holidays.
Surprisingly, in our modern high-paced high-controlled life style the thing that is out of control is our own mind. Though there is a simple process that can help to bring the mind back under control. This 5 min documentary by Syam Gopal Das and Vijay Radhika Dasi is about Awakening the Soul, an event lead by BB Govinda Swami, that delivers such an experience. June 31, 2014, Dubai.

Today, 24 and 12 hour kirtan festivals seem to be spreading all over the world like wildfire. Devotees are gathering to immerse themselves in the Holy Name every year with events like Kirtan Mela in Mayapur, Germany and Australia; in the UK; Italy, Belgium, and several places in the US. But back when the New Vrindaban 24 Hour Kirtan began in West Virginia, it was one of only a small handful of early trendsetters.
In May, a sadhu-sanga festial was held in Art of Living Foundation’s International Meditation Center near Boone, North Carolina, USA. The retreat lasted for three days and hosted well-known kirtaniyas, and 1400 guests.
