Bhakti Academy Graduation April 26, 2010

Posted by AR in Uncategorized.

Congratulations to the Bhakti Academy Class of 2010 who were honored on April 25th for their participation in this year’s academic program.  Within two years of its conception, the Bhakti Academy has grown tremendously.  New additions this year included the Saturday sanga program, more workshops and field trips, two Alternative Spring Break options, a Sunday vegetarian cooking class with Madhava das, and private kirtan lessons with Bada Hari das.  Moreover, each student participated in over 125 hours of Srimad-Bhagavatam class and 400 hours of volunteer work with Krishna Lunch!  Our hope is that each of our students leave Krishna House with increased confidence and enthusiasm to make a positive difference in the world having a better understanding of who they are and their relationship with others.

A special congratulations to four of our students, Amrita Keli devi dasi, Dina Bandhu das, Rasaraj das, and Nimai Pundit das, whose determination and exemplary service qualified them to also receive Nama Initiation at the graduation ceremony!  This special honor is only given to those students who make a lifelong commitment to practice the principles of bhakti yoga and agree to chant Hare Krishna for the rest of their lives.  This is a timeless tradition and we are proud of our students for taking this exciting step forward in their spiritual lives.
