Best-selling author and broadcaster Krishna Dharma is making a rare appearance in Canterbury for this free, one-off event!

Krishna Dharma is the author of the world’s most popular editions of India’s great epics: the Ramayana: India’s Immortal Tale of Adventure, Love, and Wisdom (1998) and the Mahabharata: The Greatest Spiritual Epic of All Time (1999).

He is also a contributor to the press and a regular radio broadcaster, appearing regularly on the BBC’s ‘Pause For Thought’ – and we are very happy to say that he is coming to Canterbury!

Krishna Dharma and his wife Chintamani Dhama Dasi will be sharing the wisdom they have gained from 40 years of dedicated spiritual practice and twenty years of writing best-selling books, as well as leading us in a blissful group meditation.

There will be time for a Q&A at the end, as well as a chance to take home copies of Krishna Dharma’s ecstatic books.

A sumptuous veggie feast will be served afterwards – all you need to bring is an empty stomach and a friend!

Reviews of Krishna Dharma’s books:

Mahesh Nair – India Today 
“Rarely, if ever, has an ancient epic received such modern blockbuster treatment. The narrative moves effortlessly, often as racily as a thriller, without compromising the elevated style and diction. The visual imagery is every bit as impressive as anything achieved in the cinematic editions.”

Midwest Book Review
“Dharma successfully captures the mood and majesty of a rich and ancient epic and, in the process, does full justice to the critical elements of the complex story. A well-wrought saga that will be appreciated by Western readers and admirably serve to introduce a new generation to the rich spiritual, cultural, and historic legacy of India. Highly recommended.”

“This is a well written work that captures very successfully the Ramayana’s epic quality. I have studied the religion, taught it, and written about it for some years, and by reading this version of the epic the nuances of the Ramayana kept rising to the surface like bubbles in a boiling saucepan. It deserves to be popular and widely read. I am thankful for a good and thought-provoking read.”
Dr.Owen Cole PhD
Author and Lecturer in Religious Studies, Chichester College

“For anyone who has no previous acquaintance with the Ramayana, this translation provides an accessible form of its basic narrative, free of most of the accretions that have surrounded it over the centuries. This translation is more than a reworking, though, since it stays so close to the Valmiki Ramayana, and is rather a vivid retelling, with the religious message that it has acquired presented in a way adjusted to our times. Above all, it is to be commended for the way it brings the story to life.”
Professor J.L.Brockington, PhD
Department of Sanskrit, University of Edinburgh.

“Ramayana makes for lively reading as a good adventure and love story as well as a guide to spiritual practice. Dharma consulted several existing translations and the Adhyatma Ramayanato to produce a clear, contemporary, and highly readable rendering of this ancient Indian classic.”
David Bourquin
California State University (for Library Journal)

“A spellbinding adventure and a work of profound philosophy, offering answers to life’s deepest questions, Ramayana is a beautiful tale of romance and high adventure. Krishna Dharma has provided the English-speaking reader with a superb opportunity to discover and enjoy this ancient and influential classic.”
J.C.Andrew
The Midwest Book Review

Some simple devotional offerings 💛 . Every day, at our altar at home, we make offerings of incense 🥢, flowers 💐, fans 🌬, water 💧, ghee lamps 🔥 and cloth 🏳️. . When offered these things with love & devotion, Krishna happily accepts them, and when they are used in this way, they take on a special, spiritual quality, which can be experienced by anyone who touches, sees or smells them. 😌 . Its the perfect way to bridge the gap between “material” and “spiritual”, just by using everyday things in a devotional way. 🙏🏼🥰 . This Saturday we’ll be at the Umbrella Centre from 5pm, chanting, dancing & talking about how things like this can help us to experience the greatest expressions of divine love 🙌🏽 Then we’ll sit together and enjoy a sumptuous veggie feast! 🍽 . . . . . #harekrishna #canterbury #kent #kirtan #mantra #meditation #igerskent #igerscanterbury #inspiration #music #bhagavadgita #spirituality #spiritual #krishna #consciousness #yoga #love #family #friendship #philosophy #iskcon #prabhupada #gauranga
