Kulimela 2010 in France

By: on May 6, 2010

The next Kuli Mela will be held in New Mayapura, France, from August 5th through the 8th. Attendees will arrive in the 4th and depart on the 9th. For those who can stay longer, a grand festival will be held on Balarama's Appearance Day on the 24th of August'

New Mayapura is a large property in the center of France, two hours south of Paris (by train) nearby the "Loire valley," with a beautiful castle, lush gardens of organic vegetables and fruits, and a immense forest.

Their will be great workshops ,evening entertainment, jam sessions, as well as ecstatic kirtans, sports and other activities. We also have a renowned chef that will prepare full organic meals with mainly garden veggies!

In accordance with what Srila Prabhupada wished for New Mayapura (self-sufficient life, connection to the Earth, cow protection, simplicity) the theme for the French Mela will be ECOLOGY.

We want to emphasize the importance of being as eco-friendly and self-sufficient as we can, especially by directing new energy toward our rural farm communities, so that they don't disappear.
