“In this age of quarrel and hypocrisy the only means of deliverance is chanting of the holy name of the Lord. There is no other way. There is no other way. There is no other way.” – Brihad Naradiya Purana
We have heard many times how attentive chanting of the holy names is the quickest and most effective means of self realisation in this current age. But to develop the ability to hear attentively is a skill that evades most of us. On top of that one has to chant with humility and free from offenses! Is this even possible?!
This japa (chanting) workshop, led by His Holiness Candramauli Swami, will go through both theory and technique of how to chant with depth and substance. Chanting is the basis of our sadhana or spiritual practice, so it is extremely important form good habits and do the simple things well. This workshop will provide spiritual practitioners the opportunity to go deeper into their practice and develop habits that will lead to spiritual success.

About the speaker
Born in New Jersey, USA, in 1947, HH Candramauli Swami came in contact with the International Society for Krishna Consciousness in Denver, Colorado, at the age of 24. In 1973 he began practicing Krishna Consciousness in New York City and shortly thereafter began serving at the New Vrindavan farm comunity in West Virginia. That same year he received initiation from His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.
In 1986 HH Candramauli Swami accepted the sannyasa order and began preaching in Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio. In the early 1980’s he became involved with the ISKCON Prison Ministry in the USA and began visiting prisoners and holding programs in jails, along with regularly writing letters to inmates and sending them Srila Prabhupada’s books.
HH Candramauli Swami is now the leader of the ISKCON Prison Ministry and has worked tirelessly to document the spiritual progression of the world-wide inmate community. His dedication to the welfare, growth and sustainable rehabilitation of these prisoners has culminated in the book “Holy Jail”, a touching compilation of the activities of the ISKCON Prison Ministry (IPM). In over thirty years of operation, the lives of hundreds of inmates have changed due to the practice of Krishna consciousness and the support received by devotees.
In 1995 he began serving as the resident sannyasi in Chicago where he was based until 2013 when he relocated to Karlovac, Croatia. At present HH Candramauli Swami offers spiritual guidance around Europe, USA and India.
HH Candramauli Swami is a disciple of ISKCON Founder Acharya His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, and an initiating spiritual master within the ISKCON movement.
