WELCOME TO ALMVIKS GÅRD
The Almvik farm is a Hare Krishna village. All the villagers share
a common interest in the ancient
Vedic teaching and
the practice of bhakti-yoga. Our tradition goes back
to the appearance of Sri
Krishna in this world 5000 years
ago. He himself is a living example of dependence on
consideration for mother cow and mother earth.
The center of the Almviks gård community is the
Candrodaya Mandir with the Lordships Sri Sri Pancha Tattva.
The focus is cow protection,
ecological farming, forestry and Krishna conscious
out-reach through retreats and seminars in different subjects.
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
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)
