Kadamba Kanana Swami is currently spending his last days in the UK, London and surrounding areas. He arrived on Friday (03 March) and will leave again on the 8th. On Saturday, he was invited to speak at a Pandava Sena event for Alumni (past members). The title of the program was:
“Krishna Consciousness – The Real Adventure” by HH Kadamba Kanana Swami – An insightful evening into the life of a present day Swami who has dedicated his life to spirituality and sharing with others.
And as usual Kadamba Kanana Swami rocked the kirtan boat and finished it off with an inspiring talk. You can still join the event by watching the energetic videos.
The Enchanting Kirtan
An evening began with an enchanting kirtan which captivated hearts – Mantra Meditation combined with Mindfulness; 30 minutes of meditation for inner peace and joy.
In our modern-day spiritual practices, the word “mantra” has become as mainstream as “intention”. But the two are actually quite different. The word mantra can be broken down into two parts: “man” which means mind and “tra” which means transport or vehicle. In other words, a mantra is an instrument of the mind — a powerful sound or vibration that you can use to enter a deep state of meditation. Like a seed planted with the intention of blossoming into a beautiful perennial, a mantra can be thought of as a seed for energising an intention. Much in the same way you plant a flower seed, you plant mantras in the fertile soil of practice. You nurture them and over time they bear the fruit of your intention.
