Bhakti Raghava Swami's visit will inspire our spiritual and community development. We will explore these topics:
- Vedic Culture & Sociology
- Cows Care & Ox training
- Traditional Vedic Technologies
- Food & Seed Security
This festival is part of Maharaj's “Make Vrindavana Villages” World Tour of Varnasrama Communities. “Make Vrindavana” is an expression coined by Srila Prabhupada himself.
He genuinely wanted us to not only convert our own environment as like Vrindavana, indeed he wanted to turn the entire world into the spiritual atmosphere of Cintamani Dham by focusing on the basic practices of cow protection, brahminical culture and self-realization.

We are laying the foundation for bringing about a gradual global social transformation through training education based on the ancient scientific principles and concepts of Sanatana Dharma, also known as Varnasrama Dharma.
Modern day society is feverishly running after materialism through increased sophisticated technologies, complicated mechanization and global urbanization thus forgetting the real purpose of life. Vedic culture propounds the glories of simple technologies and spirituality through a predominantly localized agrarian lifestyle based on the principles of simple living and high thinking.
Agriculture is the noblest profession. It makes society happy, wealthy, healthy, honest, and spiritually advanced for a better life after death. Therefore God's gifted professions for mankind are agriculture and cow protection.
The essence of the Vedic culture, the essence of the varnasrama culture: live as Krishna and the residents of Vraja lived 5000 years ago in the simple yet sublime atmosphere of Vrindavan Dham, depending on the land, the cows and Lord Krishna.
"The brāhmaṇas were trained in a literary, academic education, the kṣatriyas were trained to take care of the state, and the vaiśyas learned how to cultivate the land and take care of the cows and calves.
There was no need to waste time going to school to be falsely educated and later increase the numbers of the unemployed. Kṛṣṇa and Balarāma taught us by Their personal behavior. Kṛṣṇa took care of the cows and played His flute, and Balarāma took care of agricultural activities with a plow in His hand."
Srila Prabhupada's purport of ŚB 10.11.37
