Lord Rama is a powerful incarnation of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, manifesting as an ideal king. He appeared in the Treta-yuga, more than two million years ago.

During His activities while on Earth, Lord Rama demonstrated high moral values and acted as the perfect son, student, brother, husband and King. His extraordinary adventure is marvellously depicted  in the famous epic The Ramayana.

The Rama Navami celebration observes the birth of Lord Rama, and is one of the most auspicious days in the Vaisnava calendar.

Lessons from the Ramayan

Thursday, April 21st, 2016

Special presentation by His Holiness Sacinandana Swami about “lessons from the Ramayan”

When: Friday 22nd April at 7.30am

Where: The Manor’s Temple room

The Ramayan is a Sanskrit epic poem ascribed to the sage Valmiki. It is regarded as one of the two great works of Indian traditional literature, along with the Mahabharat. The Ramayana also plays an important role in Vedic literature  . It depicts the duties of relationships, portraying ideal characters like the ideal father, the ideal servant, the ideal brother, the ideal wife and the ideal king. The name Ramayana is a compound of Rāma and ayana (“going, advancing”), translating to “Rama’s Journey“.



Sacinandanana Swami has been a monk in the bhakti tradition for 42 years. He is known saci2for his significant contribution to the practice of contemplation and meditation for modern practitioners of bhakti. Sacinandana Swami has published seven books and released two CDs, and offers an array of retreats, seminars, and workshops. Thousands of enthusiastic singers and dancers visit his kirtan concerts. He teaches at the Vrindavana Institute for Higher Education in India and the Bhaktivedanta College in Belgium.



Dusshera 2012

Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

Sunday 28th October 2012
Cultural programme from 4:00 – 8:00pm
Burning of Ravana: 6:30 pm

Dusshera is celebrated in with great enthusiasm and excitement at Bhaktivedanta Manor with many expected to join us in the festivities.

The word Dusshera comes from the word `dus` meaning `ten’ and `hara`, meaning `annihilated`, referring to the destruction of the ten-headed Ravana. As explained in the above video clip, the festival marks the victory of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Rama, over this demonic king and the subsequent rescue of Lord Rama’s wife Sita.

This pastime appears in the great epic Ramayana, which will be enacted by the temple’s youth group, Pandava Sena. At the drama’s climax, with the final arrow shot by Lord Rama, a huge effigy of Ravana will burst into flames. As it is reduced to ashes and the smoke bellows, spectators are reminded not succumb to the dictates of lust, anger, greed and envy.

The following video clips show the event from the festival in 2009.

We look forward to seeing you on the day.
