The International Society of Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) will be organising ‘Jagruti’, a two-day festival for the 12th year on February 2 and 3, 2019 from 7pm onwards at Dinannath Mangeshkar AC Auditorium, Kala Academy, Panjim. 

The event enfolds itself in an overwhelming theme, ’Spiritual Awakening’ and features His Holiness Radhanath Swami Maharaj and Sriman Radha Gopinath Das as the speakers for the festival. The sessions will start and end with ‘kirtans’ followed by sumptuous ‘prasadam’.

The organising committee of ISKCON hopes for a good response as the festival will be filled with the blessing of two esteemed speakers. His Holiness Radhanth Swami is a world renowned leader and author of the bestselling books across the globe, namely ‘The Journey Home’ and ‘The Journey Within’. The book ‘The Journey Home’ is translated in 20 languages and published in 40 countries. He is also the Founder of the award winning ‘Govardhan Eco-village’ at Wada, Maharashtra. He is also recognised by UNWTO for promoting sustainable tourism and a perfect place to find inner peace.

 His Holiness will be engaging with the public on the first day of the festival and will enlighten them on the topic‘Life was better when apples and berries were just fruits’.

Similarly, on the second day of the event, internationally acclaimed motivational speaker and a spiritual leader Sriman Radha Das will take the participants on a journey ‘Churning the nectar of life’.

  Sriman Radha Das has been teaching Bhagavad-Gita for over 20 years through a globally popular easy foundation course- ‘Journey of Self Discovery’.

Addressing the gathering, Gopal Prabu, a member of the ISKCON group briefs, “The main aim that surrounds the festival is to bring about Spiritual awakening among people. Physically we are all in a state of dream, this Jagruti festival will help us awaken through our Vedic traditions.”

ISKCON has more than 600 temples and foundations with eight centres in Goa where classes and activities are usually conducted for children, adults and elders. ISKCON Goa’s Bhakiveda Academy for Cultural Education building is currently under construction at Chorao Island, Goa. The funds collected through the two-day festival will be utilised for the Cultural Education building construction.

Tickets for the event are available on ‘Book My Show’.
