6 Tips for Bhakti-Vrikshas (Spiritual Group Discussions)

10:02:00 PM By Kevala-Bhakti Dasa (Keshav)

Most of us may be accustomed to taking part in large kirtans (musical chanting sessions), weekly Sunday Feasts, or fantastic festivals at the Toronto Hare Krishna Temple.  In addition to these inspiring gatherings, many of our international Hare Krishna communities also have smaller gatherings called "Bhakti-Vrikshas".

Bhakti-Vrikshas are congregational development programs that utilize small group structures in order to encourage its members in their spiritual paths. It has been a successful model which has been used here in Toronto for many years.  We have Bhakti-Vrikshas that take place in different parts of the Greater Toronto Area!

If you are interested in attending a Bhakti-Vriksha program, email us!  Meanwhile, the Conregational Development Ministry has put together a nice little video with six tips for hosting a Bhakti-vriksha program (be sure to look for the part of the video where some monkeys are having their own Bhakti-Vriksha in the background).  Check out this very inspirational video below!
