Dear all, Radhe Syam
unfortunately we cannot welcome you this year on the Schweibenalp. The Bhakti Festival will not take place this summer.
From an inner point of view the riot around a virus was actually 95% fear and then a small remainder of effective tribulation, which one was allowed to face with wise caution.
Because what we had just experienced in the outside world in amazement was not a reaction to a virus, but a reaction to the driving force of unconscious fear of death, which one did not want to get to the bottom of. When people are consumed by the system of "fear", totally disproportionate reactions suddenly become the norm.
In 2023 we would like to organize an international Hari-Katha festival... ...and it would be a great pleasure to have you back.
Bhakti is not a practice or something you do. It is the function of svarup-shakti, Krishna's inner joyful power, which is in its most condensed form in Srimati Radharani himself. This power is actually experienced concretely by listening to sadhus and serving them.
That is why Bhakti is actually always a festival.
With faith and gratitude
Your Bhakti Festival Organizing Team
