Harinama Sankirtana

During the summer months we will be having fortnightly Harinam Sankirtan in the Nelson/Motueka region and we invite you to join us!
Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu stressed the chanting of the Hare Krishna Maha-Mantra: 

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare
Hare Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare

as the easiest means of self-realization in the modern age. Harinam Sankirtan is the joyful congregational chanting of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra. This style of chanting Krishna’s divinely infused names allows everyone, such as passers-by, animals and plants to benefit from the auspicious effects of the mantra. Once one is caught up in the dancing and chanting he becomes completely absorbed in the sound vibrations of the mantra. The mantra then enters his consciousness, purifies his heart and gradually develops his love for Krishna.  
Our next Harinama Sankirtan event will be held on Saturday December 30th, 1-3pm at 1903 Square, corner Selwyn and Trafalgar Streets, Nelson City.
