HH Bhakti Charu Swami Summer Retreat 2013

This year His Holiness Bhakti Charu Swami is holding his annual summer retreat here in Leicester, UK, which is set to attract devotees from around Europe and beyond.

Participants of the retreat will arrive on Saturday 3rd August, receive their accommodation, and take part with Maharaj, and the other thousands of participants in Europe's Second largest Rathayatra (Sunday 4th August). The retreat will take place at the Krishna-Avanti Primary School in Leicester from Monday 5th August. It will conclude on the morning of Sunday 11th August on the day of ISKCON Birmingham Rathayatra.

During the retreat week, there will also be the wonderful event of the installation ceremony of Sri Sri Krishna Balarama deities at the school. In deed the theme of the week is related to Krishna Balarama. We will explore and hear about:

The glories of Krishna Balarama in Vrndavana
The glories of Krishna Balarama in Mathur
The glories of Krishna Balarama in Avanti
The glories of Krishna Balarama as Gaura Nitai

Every evening will be about the glories of Srila Prabhupada. All devotees will be invited to speak about Srila Prabhupada, sharing their realisations and glorification. Overall, the week will be wonderful and inspirational opportunity to associate with Maharaja, with our local community of devotees and devotees from far and wide.

We would like this week to be a family experience. Therefore, all arrangement will be made to cater for children and offer them a learning experience based on the same theme of the retreat. Places for the week are limited so I’d like to invite you and your family and friends to take up this opportunity to have the association of His Holiness Bhakti Charu Swami, to immerse ourselves in hearing the glories of the Lord and enjoy a week of uninterrupted Krishna Consciousness.

To book your places please contact the Leicester Retreat Team on: and see Hari-kanta devi dasi or Priya-darshan das at a Sunday Program for more information and booking forms

Bookings will be on a first come, first served basis.

We look forward to having your association.
Hare Krishna.
