Seminar: Giving & Accepting Shelter - Devaki devi dasi

2:30:00 PM By Kevala-Bhakti Dasa (Keshav)

In spiritual culture giving and accepting shelter is the very basis to any meaningful relationship: we are always giving shelter to inferiors and accepting shelter from superiors. If this is not there, our relationships will be superficial.

The Toronto Hare Krishna Temple is very excited to announce a special educational course with Devaki devi dasi, who will be making her first visit to Canada.

In this course students will discover the necessary qualities to be eager for shelter, and the qualities we have to develop in order to give shelter, and what blocks us the most from giving and accepting shelter. We will also receive insights how this principle of shelter forms the foundation to "Devotee Care".

Please mark your calendars for the upcoming Seminar with Devaki Mataji.  Please Pre-Register by clicking here.

We are also happy to announce that Devaki Mataji is also conducting a Holy Name Retreat in Ottawa. You can find more information -

Hare Krsna Kevala Bhakti prabhu,

Please accept my humble obeisances.

I know it is beneficial to attend the whole seminar but is it possible to attend parts of the seminars?

Thank you for your question! I would encourage you to write to the temple's Education Department, headed by Shyama Mohini mataji to see if it is okay to attend parts of the seminar. You can write to
