The Biggest Janmashtami Festival on the European continent

TVNR Radio is asked to be present and will interview participants during The Biggest Janmashtami Festival on the European continent


LOTS OF HAPPY PILGRIMS. LOTS of ENTERTAINMENT. It’s a festival celebrating God who gave us the power of Love

Janmashtami is actually short for Shri Krishna Janmastami. Janmastami means birth (janma) on the eighth day (astami) after the full moon.
What is so special about it? Sri Krishna, described by all scriptures as the original source of all incarnations, appeared as a child from Devaki and Vasudeva, some 5000 years ago. This was in Mathura, India. “As stated in the Bhagavad-gita, the Lord says that His appearance, birth, and activities, are all transcendental, and one who understands them factually becomes immediately eligible to be transferred to the spiritual world. “ – Chapter 3: Birth of Lord Krishna, Krishna Book by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.

Lord Krishna Himself in Bhagavad gita, Chapter 4 text 8 describes the reason of His appearance as follows: paritranaya sadhunam vinasaya ca duskrtam dharma-samsthapanarthaya sambhavami yuge yuge To deliver the pious and annihilate the miscreants, as well as to re-establish the principles of religion, I Myself appear millennium after millennium.

Followers of Vedic wisdom see in the form of Krishna, the embodiment of unconditional Love, universal compassion and brotherhood Join us in this magnificent celebration, a festival worthy to please God !!

On this Festival there are many participants and visitors, TVNR platform will also be present with a stand and we will give healingsessions and massage during this festival. Also there will be Kirtan with Ludo Lieckens and friends. Be Welcome Sunday 25 August 2019 on Radhadesh in Durbuy!

We will be present with a stand and we will make a radio special about this festival in collaboration with Claire Kiirana Banziger, Ada Madhavi Merz and Dirk van Passel. We also will share some music fragments from the music from the Govinda Bhajan Band during the broadcast, but we advise our listeners if possible to come to Brussel  and enjoy this special day live as well.  There are many Yoga Classes and Talks.

Ada Madhavi Merz will accompany me at the stand of TVNR Radio. She will give a lecture  At 12.30. Recommended to join that one!

” Meet our featured teacher of the day: Ada Madhavi Merz
I am a Raja yoga – and a Tantra meditation teacher. I base my 35 years of practices, knowledge and skills mainly on the profound teachings of the Tantric guru and renaissance man Shrii Shrii Anandamurti, who taught to love all beings, do service, and develop deep devotion to a higher power that infuses the universe with life and dynamism. I draw great inspiration and joy by sharing my experiences and his universal teachings.

Yoga and meditation is therefore more than a profession for me. It is a way of life. The Tantra practices that I have been taught date back to ancient times in India and Tibet. I also teach Kaoshiiki (a yogic dance) and yoga philosophy. What I love doing most is to conduct kirtan and bhajan singing sessions in combination with group meditation.

I am also an early childhood educator and trainer in Neohumanist education and co-directed a holistic childhood centre in Holland. Nowadays, I devote my time to engaging people into leading a healthy and spiritual lifestyle so as to accelerate social change.

Yoga and meditation teachers from different countries are coming together to teach at the festival and give you an amazing Yogic experience. Each session will be 45-minutes-long. Doing Yoga and chanting with like-minded Yogis could be a divine experience in itself. Imagine, what positive vibes we will create together!

Each session is priced at only 4 euros (plus booking fee). Yes, you heard that right!

Everything can be booked online and you will be guaranteed a space in the class of your choice.

Please remember to arrive at least 20 minutes prior to the time of your class. The check-in desks will be open all day. For example, if your class is at 2pm, you are welcome to check-in at 10am – we will scan your e-ticket and give you paper ticket against it. You can then and hang out in the stall area, attend talks or just chill until your class starts.

We request you to bring your own mats. If you can’t bring a Yoga mat, you can bring a Yoga towel as the surface is wooden.
