We’re heading into fall now, and as leaves turn on one coast, we’re heading out to Bhaktifest in California, for a wonderful weekend that celebrates the bhakti yoga community on the West Coast. This is the third festival at the Joshua Tree Retreat Center, and this year promises to be bigger than ever.
All of our Mantralogy artists will be leading kirtans over the festival, as well as many others, and we are excited that many of our friends and collaborators will be there to chant together. Two guests that we are really excited about are Radhanath Swami, who attended last year and gave some beautiful lectures and kirtans, and for the first time – Sacinandana Swami, a vibrant and devoted bhakti yogi who has dedicated the past few decades to teaching others the how, what, why, when, and where of chanting. Be sure to attend their talks if you can!
Though it’s always a sweltering event, we feel the cool shade of sanga with other bhaktas, who are said to be like wish fulfilling trees, hanging low with fruit and offering shelter to all. Please come and see us at the Mantralogy booth, where we’ll have all of our T shirts and CDs, as well as smiling faces!
Remember this from last year?
