26th – 27th January 2014
One voice, one heart, one purpose… this is what the participants of the Radhadesh Mellows come for each year. Striving with all their might to make this mystical weekend another unforgettable chapter in their lives, these souls have assembled in the middle of the Belgium Ardennes to sing in one voice the Names of God in the classical and traditional Vaisnava style of Kirtan.
Just as a conductor guides an entire orchestra, a kirtan leader sets the mood of the kirtan and chooses a melody. However, kirtan only reaches its highest potential when everyone present actively sings along. This leads to a magnanimous and unanimous flow of spiritual sound. Not only should everyone sing in one voice, but everyone should have their heart focused on their spiritual goal. Through the congregational chanting of the Holy Name, such as in kirtan, everyone can focus on their purpose of re-establishing their eternal relationship with the Supreme Personality of Godhead by surrendering unto Him. This is what we try to achieve each year in Radhadesh and by the mercy and will of all those present we usually attain very satisfactory results. Indeed, whether you love deep spiritual meditation, singing, exciting music, funky beats, dancing… or simply having fun, you can rest assured that just like all participants each year, you will leave with your heart fulfilled and with a smile on your face. This I assure you!
Every year, during the last full weekend of January, this kirtan event grows in size and for this year more than 500 eager participants (of which 1/3 are youth) from over 40 countries throughout the world are expected. Do not hesitate if you have a desire to come here: everyone is welcome. And if you are still not convinced about coming, you are cordially invited to look at the recordings and images from the previous years on our website.
Kirtan is something that should be experienced in the right environment and the Radhadesh Mellows offer you this opportunity to join the one voice, one heart, and one purpose crew.
