Krishna Valley: Why Do We Need Spiritual Farm Communities?
8th Winter Assembly of Hungarian Ecovillages (23-25 January, 2009)
We may wonder how the devotees began building Krishna Valley in Hungary, which now attracts 30,000 tourists per year. And why did these young people turn to natural and simple life-style? What is the mission of this community? Gaura-Sakti Das, the president of ISKCON’s Krishna Valley community, answers these questions to the Krishna Valley Magazine.
It was the greatest interest ever shown in the Hungarian Ecovillage Winter Assembly this year. More than 140 attendants participated in Máriahalom. Perhaps global crisis, high unemployment, gas scarcity on the coldest days of winter together forced a lot of people to think over how to continue in Hungary.
