All those interested in reaching perfection in life are asked to attend a feast of sacred food and chant the Hare Krishna Mantra this Sunday at noon.
No previous experience necessary.
The feast is arranged by Bhurijana das Bramachary to start a Krishna Meditation Society. It will be held at 107 Laurel Ave.
The Krishna Society was brought to this country by an Indian holy man named A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami about three years ago. Swami said, "The transcendental vibration set up by the chanting of the Hare Krishna Mantra is the sublime method for reviving our transcendental consciousness."
Bramachary planned the feast in honor of Lord Ramachandra's appearance day. "Through these processes of eating the sacred food and chanting and reading from the Bhagavad-Gita, perfection in life can be reached."
"Perfection is pure consciousness which we revive and become happy, peaceful and even blissful," said Bramachary. He added that the method is "simple, practical and very sublime."
Bramachary said there are no officers of the society now, but he plans to hold meetings at 7:00 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
The chant says, "hare krishna-hare krishna, krishna krishna-hare hare, hare rama-hare rama, rama rama-hare hare."
Other societies are at Ohio State University, University of Buffalo and the Universities of Seattle and Berkeley.
