Domus Hare Krishna… the search for which, in Rome and its vicinity, has been a long and exciting adventure… and finally here it is, just a stone’s throw away… just a little bit more… and joy will become a reality! 🤩😍
Last July, to be precise the 9th, warmed up by the sun of a summer that promised (and kept it’s word! 😎👍) wonderful, vibrant and colourful occasion for celebration and sharing 🥳🎉 … and warmed up by the generous and encouraging donations from friends near and far 🥰, we signed the preliminary purchase agreement for the new Castelli Romani Tempio, in the Velletri Countryside… the long awaited Domus Hare Krishna! 🤗🏰
Thank you folks, your effort was a decisive factor💪😉 …Krishna is obviously pleased and has showered His blessings upon this project 😇 …… but we must not rest on our laurels: we still have a little bit more to do! 🏃🏃
As you can see from the photos, the garden is simply out of this world… for outdoor celebrations from May to October as many as we wish!! 🌴☀😁🌳
In the colder months 🥶🌧🌬☔ Domus Hare Krishna will welcome us indoors like a mother, and from there with fireplace 🔥, instruments 🎹🎼🎤 and hearts 💞💗💖 switched on, winter will be only a calendrical detail 📆 …and the feasting goes on! 🎊😄
And since you will not be able to do without, and seeing you leave sad we really don’t like 😔 …no worries💡: there are loads of bedrooms 😴🛌🏻 and we will surely find some space for you! …so that you can decide whether to stayfor a weekend, a week, a month, a year ………or even a lifetime!!! 😌😀
As it is well known, the centre of everything is always good food, and you know full well (or you will discover!😁) that it is tasty and abundant (…and free!) Hare Krishna Prasadam never fails, and thanks to a super-equipped kitchen we will surely succeed incapturing that HMMMMMMM sound 😋 even from the most timid of palates!
And let us not forget that from that said kitchen, we will be churning out nutritious delicacies to even give those less fortunate!❤🥣🥖🥧
As we were saying… there is still a little bit more to do… remember? 😉 We want it done together and offer the world one more extraordinary place? ☺
By October (max December) we will have to complete the purchase🤝…and an important sum is still amiss: namely €200.000 to complete the acquisition, carry out some structural changes in order to create a suitable space for the main Temple room 🛐, equip the kitchen 👨🍳👩🍳 …then to furnishthe bedrooms for the guests 🛏 and spruce up the bathrooms 🛀, renew the fittings 🚪, install a new pellet boiler💥, purchase a 9-seater mini-bus 🚌 to provide transport from the station to Domus Hare Krishna and vice-versa… and snagging list of little and medium sized things that come to the surface when one decides to refurbish a property! 😉
Would you be interested in giving us a helping hand? 🙏
Obviously there are many ways one can help in this exciting “adventure” to achieve our common aim aside from donations: making a gift of basic necessities (… and many things are needed, from beds to washing machines, to cupboards, to building materials, etc …), offering personal skills and competences, sharing the news from this project … choose what suits you best, an option or more … perhaps even all of them !!! But please, do keep in touch, let us not lose sight of the project… andwe shall cross the finishing line together!
