What is Holi?

Summer is a season full of colours joy and peace. Join us in our annual Summer Festival and as a tribute to the summer play Holi with us. HOLI is a spiritual event originating in India which is generally held in early spring and signifies new life. HOLI is a spiritual event originating in India which is generally held in early spring and signifies new life, growth and new beginnings. Holi, therefore, reminds us to colour our life with love, faith, and a generous spirit. It calls us to give and receive. And best of all, it’s just great fun!

We get lost in colour, forget about our usual identity, and experience life — and each other — from a whole new perspective. Although the festival is mainly held in Spring, we all live in Belgium and therefore what better thing to do than move it into the middle of Summer where the weather is more suitable, in this way combining it with our annual Summer Festival (since 1980’s) for even more fun. See you all then and lets make this the Finest Belgian Colour Party!!

 Holi Fun Facts

Lathmar Holi is a centuries-old practice that gives a free hand to women to beat up their men for a day. As a highlight of the Holi festivities in Brajbhoomi – land of Krishna and Radha (in Vrindavan India), the Lathmar Holi draws from local legend that says that Krishna visited his beloved Radha on this day and teased her and her friends. In retaliation, the women chased him away. To recreate this event, men from Krishna’s village, Nandgaon visit Radha’s hometown Barsana and are greeted with abuses and sticks (lath) that gave rise to this tradition.

The Kirtan Experience

Click here to learn more

Kirtan is an experience like no other. It combines sacred mantra, or spiritual words with vibrant, joyous music that lifts the soul and energizes the body. Its beauty lies in its simplicity. One leader sings the mantra, accompanied by a few instruments. After each line, the group – however large or small, respond with the same line. This call and response continues as the kirtan slowly unfolds. Though the kirtan tradition originated in ancient India, it is no less relevant to our modern times. With the increasing demands of the average working life, kirtan is perhaps even more beneficial than ever. In kirtan, there are no rules – you can sit or stand, or better yet, dance! You can clap or play instruments, and sing to your heart’s content. The only thing necessary is an open heart, open mind, and open ears.
