The Hare Kr­ishna Com­mu­nity in the North­ern Divi­sion started its 2019 jour­ney on a high note by hav­ing a de­vo­tion then a march through Labasa Town. Kr­ishna Con­science re­gional sec­re­tary Ras Bi­hari Das said that the con­cept be­hind the gath­er­ing was to shed light and preach peace and pros­per­ity for 2019. “Com­ing to­gether and shar­ing the love with our fel­low Fi­jians is some­thing that is at the core of our reli- gion,” Mr Das said. “Seek­ing di­vine bless­ings and guid­ance then plac­ing God at the cen­tre of our hearts is some­thing that will lead to an ideal life for ev­ery per­son.

“We are all equal and of the same blood so com­ing to­gether and shar­ing the love is some­thing that is im­por­tant.” Mr Das said the idea of giv­ing back to so­ci­ety was also im­per­a­tive.

“We ex­press our­selves by giv­ing and help­ing peo­ple in need,” Mr Das said.

The Hare Kr­ishna Com­mu­nity has ar­ranged free food dis­tri­bu­tion to about 2000 peo­ple in Labasa. “When we die we will not take any­thing but the love we have for each other,” he said.

“Shar­ing the wis­dom gained is also an im­por­tant part of life as it will lead to growth and de­vel­op­ment of ev­ery hu­man be­ing.” He added that their com­mu­nity would con­duct sim­i­lar devi­tion marches in Labasa Town on the first week of ev­ery month this year. Edited by Su­sana Tuilau
