When Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada first came to New Zealand, he predicted that there would be hundreds of temples throughout New Zealand. To make this vision a reality an effective program of travelling Hare Krsna monks has been quite successful to reaching out and contacting those who are interested in deepening their spiritual ties and native roots.
Presently, we have several travelling bus parties who systematically travel around the North andSouth Islands visiting the towns and cities trying to help people add solid spirituality to their lives. The bus parties carry three to five persons and distribute Krsna literature making contacts with people within the different localities and visit the homes of interested persons for an evening of philosophy, spiritual food and sounds.
Bhaktisiddhanta Swami; "Our motive is
to share, deepen and re-enforce people on their spiritual path. Anyone
with just a little intelligence can understand the dead ends and limitations
of material living and in order to be sane and peaceful one must adopt
a lifestyle centred on a spiritual practices that can release one from
the world of temporal pleasures and sufferings. Our travelling teams are
not to be seen as just canvassing units, but rather as spiritual doctors
sharing ancient knowledge which can help all regardless of ones background
or religious orientation to just become deeper on their path.
Our work may be likened to helping people at the top of the cliff with proper understandings instead of just at the bottom of the cliff where the material habits have taken their toll. For someone who has become freed from the dis...ease in their life there is no question of disease. Real happiness is based on accurate knowledge of ones true self which manifests when we awaken our relationship with the Supreme Self."
Our travelling bus programs encourage all to make their home a spiritual centre. Our living room workshops attract an intimate crowd from six to 20 persons weekly in the different areas all around the country. These meetings are the next best thing to our 'Loft' centres in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. Future Loft hubs may appear in Hamilton, Palmerston North, Tauranga, Whakatane and Dunedin.
