A SPIRITUAL OASIS IN THE MIDDLE OF HUNGARY

History of Krishna Valley

Our story begins with an Hungarian-Canadian monk who, after learning about the ancient vedic wisdom and culture from A.C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhuapada, came back to Hungary to spread those same teachings. To accomplish his task he didn’t desire to merely speak about the philosophy, but also to present it in a most practical way….

Srila Sivarama Swami reached Hungary in 1987 and after only a few years of teaching the philosophy and with the increasing interest that Hungarians showed in what he had to present to them, he along with his followers selected the location on which Krishna Valley now stands. It was 1993 and only three or four Hare Krishna devotees inhabited the initial 300 acres of land that they had recently purchased. The land upon which today, a thriving community, spiritual center and eco farm now flourishes, was at that time, completely vacant.

Slowly more joined the small group that had already started to learn how to work the land and construct houses. With time the temple was built, the vegetable garden came forth, the cow barn filled with mooing cows and the fields were cultivated. Houses for the now many volunteers who came to live, worship and work on the land were constructed. In a short time the community of Krishna Valley as we know it today was established.

The spiritual philosophy and culture of Vaisnavism and Varnasrama stand as the pillar for the creation and growth of the Krishna Valley farm community. As Krishna Valley continues to develop, slowly but surely more facets of the extensive vision behind the community start to shine through more and more brightly. We invite you to come and witness all of these for yourself.
