Currently, there is an accredited primary school, kindergarten and secondary school in Krisna-völgy. Class rooms are located in three school buildings, from the first to the eighth grade. In 2022 high school was also officialy registered and the first students were able to continue their education in our local school. Up and until September 2022 the school only went up to the ninth grade.
I thought the best way to introduce the school would be by interviewing on of the school’s students.
While still in high school, I used to be a tourist guide during my summer vacations. At the beginning of each tour, I would ask our guests what was the thing they noticed first when they entered the temple room. Most of the answers I recieved were about to bright colors, cheerful atmosphere, and beautiful paintings.
In our last blog post, our journey ended at the horticulture behind the temple, where we will now continue our imaginary tour. It is said that all roads lead to Rome. In Krishna Valley, all roads lead to the temple. No matter where you started your journey, it usually ends at the temple. Looking at the map, we can see that the temple is centrally located. The school, the barn and even the horticulture were built around the main building, the temple.
The main reason for this is that the monks who live here spend their whole lives serving God. They start and end the day with morning prayer. During the day, they are either busy engaged in their services around the farm or and they are on their way to the temple. Later on, I will explain this in more detail, as it is a very broad topic, and much can be said about it.
“Autumn is here, here again.”
Autumn has finally arrived in Krishna Valley, which can mean only one thing! For those wishing to hike in a landscape full of silence and tranquility, Krishna Valley is the perfect location and even more so in the autumn. As soon as you stepp past the gate, you will immediately feel as if you have entered another dimension. The autumn landscape, which is truly wonderful and mysterious, captivates everyone right away. During the walk, you will pass by the beautiful Yamuna river, have an oppertunity to walk in the small zigzag forest paths, pass the dairy farm, the horticulture and the bamboo tunnel, which all provide an exciting experience for both adults and children.
On our farm we are proud to house a herd of 62 cows, oxen and calves. As part of our cow protection program, none of our herd members are ever sent to slaughter! They all pass their lives happily in the green pastures and barn until their natural death.
Being self-sufficient can mean many things; it is not merely producing your own food, rather it is creating every product that you need for your daily life, on your own. In Krishna Valley we are striving to come to the point of being able to do just that: produce everything we need from products that we cultivate on the farm and even from our waste!
We are working hard on improving our guesthouses for your comfort. Big changes are already on the way. Check the Kamala guesthouse before and after pictures to see what we mean.
Krishna Valley, an ecological farm community, was first established in 1993. The vision was to create an alternative way of living, separate from modern day civilization. The center of the community would be it’s temple and spiritual practices. The sustenance of this project would be through self sufficient means.
