You are warmly invited to meet and hear directly from one of the world's most saintly spiritual teachers, Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Maharaja.


Discover and experience the life changing science of Bhakti-Yoga, the union of the soul with its Beloved Source through the path of loving devotion, or Bhakti.


- Come experience for yourself the soothing ambience of Srila Narayana Maharaja's presence and the profound depth of his discourses.


- Discover the transformational power of his transcendental association.

This year's festival will be held once again in the city just minutes from the International Airport and City Centre at the spacious Namdhari Gurudwara. The nectarean hari-katha will flow all week with many guest speakers. On the 14th of June Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Maharaja arrives for an evening program at an exciting new venue in the city centre called the Custard Factory. Greeting Srila Gurudeva at this event will be the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress of the city of Birmingham. Also attending this program will be religious leaders from many different religious organizations all coming to welcome the spiritual leader of the Hare Krishna Movement! On the midday of the 14th hundreds of devotees from around the world will lead a triumphant nagar sankirtan through the city centre with our Sri Caintanya Mahaprabhu carried aloft on a beautiful pal! anquin. Thousands of people will be on the streets on this warm sunny day. We will converge on the Custard Factory, having invited everyone along the route to come along, to welcome Srila Narayana Maharaja to the UK. All are welcome for this exciting event. Then the remaining of the festival will be held at the Namdhari Gurudwara with Srila Gurudeva speaking every evening. The Namdhari Sikhs who own this Gurudwara are very sweet and most welcoming of Vaisnavas. Last year Srila Gurudeva proclaimed them as genuine ksatriyas and protectors of our faith. Don't miss it! Last year's festival was a huge success!
