Welcome to Hare Krishna Village
Hare Krishna Village is situated at a distance of 70 kms from Jaipur. Surrounded by hills and forests, the location of this unique village is far away from the monotony of city life with its beauty being increased by small ponds and the river, Banas, flowing beside the village.
It will have a self-sufficient farm community project based on the guidelines set by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada who once said “Our farm projects are an extremely important part of our movement. We must become self-sufficient by growing our own grains and producing our own milk, then there will be no question of poverty. So develop these farm communities as far as possible. They should be developed as an ideal society depending on natural products not industry. Industry has simply created godlessness, because they think they can manufacture everything that they need.
Our Bhagavad-gita philosophy explains that men and animals must have food in order to maintain their bodies. And the production of food is dependent on the rain and the rain of course is dependent on chanting Hare Krsna. Therefore let everyone chant Hare Krsna, eat nicely and keep their bodies fit and healthy. This is ideal life style. We do not condemn modern civilization but we don't like to get it at the cost of God Consciousness, that is suicide.” [ Letter to Rupanuga -- Bombay 18 December, 1974]
The village already comprises of Bhaktivedanta International
Gurukula , Bhaktivedanta Goshala and a place that will re-establish
the “Daivi Varnashrama System” in the society. The village will
also have large farm lands, agro-based production houses, flower valleys
and many such units to reduce the dependency on artificial machinery.
Here is a message from Dayalu Nitai Prabhu, President of Hare Krishna Community under which this project is being developed- "Simple Living means our bodily needs can be simply fulfilled based on cows and agriculture.This saves a lot of time, which can be utilized for higher thinking.Now, what is higher thinking? Its thinking aabout God, Krishna." Krishna says in the Bhagavad Gita:
man-mana bhava mad-bhakto,mad-yaji mam namaskuru
mam evaisyasi yuktvaivam,atmanam mat-parayanah
"Engage your mind always in thinking of Me, offer obeisances and worship Me. Being completely absorbed in Me, surely you will come to Me."(Bhagavad Gita 9.34) Modern Civilization wrongly thinks that by gratifying the seses more and more and by indulging in intoxication,meat eating, gambling and illicit sex, they will become happy. This is a complete wrong idea. As we are not this body, real happiness can be achieved only on the spiritual platform, which we engage in the service of Krishna. You can also come and live with us in this village and see yourself that how devotees are living happily a simple life and chanting Hare Krishna.You can also chant Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare , Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare and your life will be sublime.
Just Like Srila Prabhupada has said about the activity of a farm community
"Its main activity will be cow protection and to show the world that simply by living with cows and land and chanting HARE KRISHNA a perfect society will prevail." (Letter to: All Devotees -- New York 7 September, 1968)"
