Hare Krishna Village (HKV) is a farm project of Hare Krishna Community, Jaipur (HKC) being developed under the guidance of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. It is located in Hathona village of district Tonk, Rajasthan. From Jaipur, Tonk is straight one and a half hour’s drive by car or or bus.
The main idea behind developing this community of devotees is Simple Living High Thinking.
Simple living means our bodily needs can be simply fulfilled based on cows and agriculture. This will save a lot of time, which can be utilised for high thinking. And what is this high thinking? Thinking of God, Krishna.
Krishna also says in Bhagavad Gita:
mām evaiṣyasi yuktvaivam
“Engage your mind always in thinking of Me, offer obeisances and worship Me. Being completely absorbed in Me, surely you will come to Me.”
Modern civilisation wrongly thinks that by gratifying the senses more and more and by indulging in intoxication, meat eating, gambling and illicit sex, they will become happy. This is a wrong idea. Since we are not this body, real happiness can be achieved only on the spiritual platform, when we engage in the service of Krishna.
You can also come and live with us and see for yourself how devotees are living happily a simple life and chanting Hare Krishna.
