Hare Krishna! Welcome to the University of Kent Krishna Consciousness Society.

Why not like our facebook page for more news, updates and inspiration for your your spiritual journey!

Krishna Consciousness (also known as bhakti yoga) is said by saints, sages and enlightened souls from all ages and traditions to be the natural state of consciousness of all living beings.

What’s more, returning to our original consciousness through musical mantra meditation, spiritual food and the universal philosophy of yoga can reignite the dormant and blissful loving propensities that lie in the hearts of everyone and bring about permanent and substantial change in a troubled world!

So with this in mind we will be meeting every Monday from 6pm – 8pm in Keynes seminar room 5 (KS5) to explore the ecstatic science of self-realisation as it has been taught by enlightened spiritual masters for thousands of years.

Prasadam (delicious, spiritual food) will be served in the foyer downstairs at Keynes at the end of each program.

Members of the society will be going on day trips to temples and festivals and will have access to our yearly retreat at various locations across the U.K. and Europe (this year we visited our farm community and cow protection program in sunny Spain!)

Membership fees contribute to the costs of running the society and membership can be bought for just Β£5 here.

The revolutionary practice of bhakti yoga is completely non-sectarian, so whatever your religious, spiritual, economic, political or cultural background, please feel free to join us and benefit from this sublime spiritual practise by chanting:

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna Hare Hare,
Hare Rama Hare Rama, Rama Rama Hare Hare!

Thank you!

Whatever our background, these days almost everybody experiences feelings of stress and anxiety on a near-daily basis, to the point that frequent distress has now become an accepted part of modern life! 😒 Ancient wisdom, however, says that beyond these temporary feelings of distress lies a boundless reservoir of joy which is our real nature. πŸ₯³ Enlightened souls tell us that a simple, regular practice of mantra meditation can not only relieve us of these problems at a stroke, but also fill our hearts with bliss on a daily basis! 🀩 Our dear friend Sandipani Prabhu has dedicated his life to this simple practice, and now spends his days travelling the globe deepening his understanding and sharing it with others. πŸš€ Fresh from trips to China, Japan, South Korea, Indonesia (& Margate!), he will now be coming to Canterbury to teach the art of mantra meditation at a free event at the Umbrella Centre on St Peters Place today from 5pm. πŸ§˜πŸ½β€β™‚οΈ There will be guided, musical mantra meditation, Q&A and a delicious veggie feast for everyone - please come and don't forget to bring a friend! πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ°πŸ“Ώ . . . . . . . . #harekrishna #canterbury #kent #kirtan #mantra #meditation #igerskent #igerscanterbury #inspiration #music #bhagavadgita #spirituality #spiritual #krishna #consciousness #yoga #love #family #friendship #philosophy #iskcon #prabhupada #gauranga #community #sangha #peace #bhakti
