Dear Devotees who regularly attend the festivals,
New Vraja Dhama is looking forward to seeing You in 2024 too!
As you know all the festivals in Krishna Valley are free and we will infrom you about the the prasadam costs at the site of each festival.
In the spiritual world there is no conclusion, so we have tried to organize new and interesting programs this year, as well as for the pleasure of Sri-Sri Radha-Syamasundara, that we can make Them and all of Their dear guests satisfied. Krisna-valley has been making a serious effort to realize the ideal of daiva varnasrama for many years. Part of the basis of this is that the different varnas and ashrams serve the whole of the society in different ways. For example the brahmacaris study the scriptures, and the grihastas give away a certain percentage of their income in charity. This act of charity maintains the rest of the ashramas and helps the maintenance of the Deities. Srila Prabhupada writes in his purport of the Bhagavad-gita, Chapter 16, verse 13:
"Charity is meant for householders. The householders should earn livelihood by an honourable means and spend fifty percent of their income to propagate Krishna-consciousness all over the world. Thus a householder should give in charity to such institutional societies that are engaged in that way. Charity should be given to the right receiver. There are different kinds of charities, as will be explained later on, charity in the mode of goodness, passion and ignorance. Charity in the mode of goodness is recommended by the scriptures, but charity in the modes of passion and ignorance is not recommended because it is simply a waste of money. Charity should be given only to propagate Krishna-consciousness all over the world. This is charity in the mode of goodness."
