Kirtan, an ancient, simple and increasingly popular method of group meditation, is so pleasurable that once you get rolling, you don't want to stop. Each semester, Krishna House hosts a twelve-hour kirtan day for everyone, from those who have never tried it to those who can't get enough.
The Spring 2014 twelve-hour kirtan will be held on March 15, 9 AM to 9 PM, at Krishna House. You're invited to come for the whole event or to drop by any time for a kirtan experience. The practice is simple to learn. Krishna Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner will be served throughout the day. Dress is casual and the doors are open all day.
Krishna House is located one block west of Krispy Kreme at 214 NW 14th Street in Gainesville. Call 352 222 2886 for more details.
Hare Krishnas don't just serve lunch and sing and dance! Here's a short video of Tulasi Gabbard, US congresswoman and practicing Hare Krishna devotee, explaining the importance of the Bhagavad Gita in her life. Ms. Gabbard is a representative of Hawaii, is the first Hindu, the first American Samoan, and one of the first female combat veterans in the United States Congress.
2014 has brought an unusually cold winter. On really cold days you may need to look for Krishna Lunch under the library walkway. We will also bring carry-out plates on those days so you can take Krishna Lunch inside. Whatever the weather, you can count on Krishna Lunch being there for you.
For years, Krishna Lunch was served on the Plaza of the America's west side, where there are many convenient picnic tables and brick benches. Two years ago, the UF administration moved us to the east side of the Plaza, where we needed to bring lawn chairs for our guests. Now the administration has graciously agreed to let us return to the west side, where seating for you is simpler and more plentiful.
The relocation will begin with the new semester, January 6, and will continue indefinitely. As always, we appreciate the opportunity to serve you a karma-free Krishna lunch as conveniently and efficiently as possible.
A good friend of Krishna Lunch and her two younger sisters lost their parents in a recent tragedy. We want them to know they are in our thoughts and prayers.
