Dear {contact.first_name},

The beautiful season of autumn is upon us and the most auspicious month of Kartik starts in a few days! To add to the joy, we bring to you a multitude of courses and seminars ranging from relevance of spirituality in today's scientific world to leading a more natural and healthier lifestyle.

HG Jai Nitai dasa (our Temple President) will be facilitating the ISKCON Disciples Course this month. Next, HG Akhandadhi dasa will present an interactive workshop linking science to our consciousness. Don't forget to book your appointment with HG Tribhanga dasa who will join us in November for Ayurveda seminar and private consultations.

The much-awaited Pujari Training course will be held early in January. You can also sign up to the next units of Bhakti Sastri if you feel inspired to study Srila Prabhupada's books more deeply. Finally, have you tried out our weekly yoga classes yet? You can also drop in any Friday for a taster session!

We wish you have a wonderful start to Kartik and look forward to seeing you soon.

Best wishes,
London College of Vedic Studies
