Almviks Gård är en Hare Krishna by. Alla bybor delar
ett intresse av den uråldriga vediska läran och
praktiserandet av bhakti yoga. Vår tradition går tillbaks
till då Sri Krishna uppenbarade Sig i denna värld,
ca 5000 år sedan, som då Själv var ett levande exempel
på beroende av och omtanke för moder ko och moder jord.


Gopala Champu ca 1585

Overcome with bliss and love
Anyone who meditates on Lord Krishna's birth, His protecting the cows, His singing charming songs with the gopas (cowherd boys) and His other pastimes will find himself overcome with bliss and love.
(Gopala-Campu, First Champi, Text 97, Srila Jiva Goswami, translated by Kusakratha data.)

Sri Isopanisad ca 3200 BC

A timeless environmental solution Everything animate or inanimate that is within the universe is controlled and owned by the Lord. One should therefore accept only those things necessary for himself, which are set aside as his quota, and one should not accept other things, knowing well to whom they belong.
(Sri Isopanisad verse 1)

Sri Caitanya Caritamrita 16th century

Lord Caitanya’s special mercy Thus He [Lord Caitanya] spread kirtana (glorification of God) even among the untouchables. He wove a wreath of the holy name and prema [love of God], with which He garlanded the entire material world.
(Sri Caitanya Caritamrita, adi 4.40) 16th century
