Welcome to Harināma-Sankīrtana Riga website!

Lord Chaitanya

Harinama – is a very special way to serve God by going out and singing (we call it – chanting) God’s Holy names with joy and happiness, spreading it to every living being. We go out and do this to please the Lord and so everyone can benefit from simply hearing us, singing Maha Mantra – Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare.

It’s not a secret, that many people suffer in one or other way. And when we suffer, no matter who we are – we all can describe this feeling with simple words – I am not happy. Yes, as simple as that. And if we sit down and think for a moment – where does happiness come from, what is real happiness and how do I become happy?.. Does it mean to get a new phone? Or a boyfriend? Maybe tasty dinner or night-out gives us this feeling? Some people would say Yes, you are right.. But think again – does happiness really come from outside?
We believe that happiness comes from the inside. And it comes from Lord Krishna. Krishna is known as sat-chit-ananda-vigraha – His spiritual form is the embodiment of eternity, knowledge and bliss. Vedic scriptures say, that “In this age of quarrel and hypocrisy, the only means of deliverance is the chanting of the holy name of the Lord. There is no other way. There is no other way. There is no other way.” (Adi 17.21)
Therefore – when you hear or sing the names of Krishna – you immediately connect with Him, you connect with the Source of happiness and you become happy.

Please come and join us every Wednesday and Friday, at 5pm from Hare Krishna temple in Riga (56 Kr.Barona street).
