‘If you simply hear…’

“In whatever condition you are, that doesn’t matter. ‘Oh, I am a very poor man.’ That doesn’t matter. ‘Oh, I am a very rich man.’ That doesn’t matter. ‘Oh, I am European.’ It doesn’t matter. ‘I am Indian.’ Doesn’t matter. ‘I am born very low.’ Oh, doesn’t matter. Anything, unconditional. You remain whatever you are; that doesn’t matter. If you simply hear, sthāne sthitāḥ śruti-gatām, if you simply give your aural reception to these transcendental words, the result will be that God, who can never be conquered, you’ll conquer God. How you conquer? You will conquer by love. God cannot be conquered, but He can be conquered by love.” 

(Srilal Prabhupada; Bhagavad-gita lecture, N.Y., Oct. ’66)

The epic arrival

I would never have thoughInevitable Time Ananda Monett that I would remember St George’s Day but what an amazing day this was! The Inevitable Time CD’s are finally printed and arrived yesterday in full glory! We were overjoyed and speechless to finally hold them in our hands. We offered them to Their Lordships and Srila Prabhupada and had a first listen in the sunshine. It is such a relief and I am so grateful to everyone who supported and guided us on this journey, it was worth every bit of the way. We will announce the release date shortly – so watch this space.

Inevitable Time is ready for the world!

Immerse yourself in an enthralling journey five thousand years back, to a time of mystic heroes, to the ancient epic Mahabharata. Experience the fabled history, which culminates in a colossal eighteen-day war, raged between family, friends, gurus and disciples for the sake of righteousness and the throne. Feel a mother’s heartache, find the freedom in surrender of a warrior princess, hear absolute wisdom from the Supreme Lord, enter the blood swept planes of the Kurukshetra battlefield, become awestruck at the Universal Form and pay your respects to a fallen warrior breathing his last.

You might have heard of my collaboration with Radha Krishna-Records on creating an epic Mahabharata-themed album, called ‘Inevitable Time’. I have had so much encouragement from all my friends and loved ones during this work and now the music is completed and the artwork is done too! Please have a listen to the song and see for yourself if you’d like to become an integral part of this project by helping us release it into the world. Visit our campaign to pre-order a copy of the CD and posters of the original artwork at Indiegogo.

Feel Your Heart Smile

A mantra is an ancient word or sound which helps align the body, mind and soul. When sung aloud as a group it’s called kirtan. It’s easy, authentic, great fun, and one of the best ways to relieve stress.

On the 14th February Kirtan London will hold a 6 Hour Kirtan, where a range of kirtan singers will take turns in leading. Join us from 1pm-7pm for another unforgettable experience and a delicious vegetarian dinner at the end.
