Musical Meditation in Central London

With the summer heat settling in, Soho’s Radha-Krishna temple will be hosting a musical weekend of light and joyful meditation. Its third London Mellows Annual Kirtan Weekend will be one for all to enjoy, on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th June.

For the very first time, a film depicting the life and work of the founder of the internationally renowned Hare Krishna movement will be released in cinemas across the UK. Hare Krishna! The Mantra, The Movement, and the Swami who started it all will premiere at the Odeon Covent Garden on Monday 23rd April.

Hare Krishna! Film to Premiere in London

The wait in the UK is finally over! Hare Krishna! The Mantra, the Movement and the Swami who started it all(formerly known as Acharya) is coming to cinemas in the UK! Never before has there been a bigger opportunity for a mainstream audience in the UK to experience the incredible story of A.C Bhaktivedanta Swami (affectionately known as Srila Prabhupada), the 70-year-old Swami from India, who arrived in America without any support or money in the turbulent 1960s. Despite all difficulties and obstacles, his unflinching determination and faith ignited a worldwide spiritual phenomenon, known as the “Hare Krishna Movement” and officially named the “International Society of Krishna Consciousness” (ISKCON).

ISKCON London’s own record label, Radha Krishna records, is currently in production on an ISKCON 50th Anniversary London Mellows kirtan album.

The Radha Krishna Temple at ISKCON of Soho Street, London inaugurated London Mellows, an annual 24-hour kirtan weekend, in 2016 as an offering to Srila Prabhupada on ISKCON’s 50th anniversary.

Food for Life in London, an initiative from London’s Radha-Krishna Temple, has been feeding hot meals to the homeless for over 20 years, and in 2017 expanded it’s usual Monday to Thursday offering to include Fridays and Saturdays. Its incredible efforts were officially recognised in December 2017 when the chief organiser of the London-based service, Asish Soni, was honoured with a British Empire Medal for voluntary and charitable services to homeless people.

Where to find the best vegan food in London

Thanks to ethical eating initiatives such as Veganuary, more people than ever before are taking the plunge and going totally meat and dairy-free in 2018.

It's lucky then that PETA recognises London as the most veggie and vegan-friendly city on the planet, with more and more specialist restaurants (and pubs) opening every year.

Devotees are given new names at their initiation

‘I was working in investment banking and earning a decent salary but engaging in lots of drinking and drugging. I realised the path I was on was a dangerous one and decided to look at alternatives. After some years of practice and training, I took vows and received a spiritual name to help me remember Krishna. My birth name is James Edwards, but my spiritual name is Jai Nitai Dasa, which means “he who is the servant of the glorious lord Nityananda”.’

Food for Life in London, an initiative from London’s Radha-Krishna Temple, has been feeding hot meals to the homeless for over 20 years, and in 2017 expanded its usual Monday to Thursday offering to include Fridays and Saturdays. Its incredible efforts were officially recognised in December 2017 when the chief organiser of the London-based service, Acyuta Charan dasa (Asish Soni), was honoured with a British Empire Medal (BEM) for voluntary and charitable services to homeless people. The BEM is awarded for a “hands-on” service to the local community, either a long-term voluntary or charitable activity, or innovative work of a relatively short duration that has made a significant difference.

A Croydon dad who helps to run the largest vegetarian food charity for homeless people in London has been awarded a British Empire Medal (BEM) in the New Year’s Honours list.
