Dear {personalized.fname_sname},

Welcome to the April 2020 London College of Vedic Studies Newsletter!

We hope you are all keeping well during these challenging times. With the Temple closed until further notice due to the lockdown, we bring to you a range of online courses to continue your learning journey during this period of social distancing.

Over the next few weekends, we have planned several free online courses and workshops that will be offered via Zoom. Our first free course starts this Saturday 18th April with ISKCON-London's Head Pujari, Murli Manohara dasa conducting the How to Improve Your Chanting course. Other course speakers include HH Bhakti Rasayana Sagar Swami, HH Bhakti Vikasa Swami and HH Candramauli Swami. Please see below for more details on all the courses and how you can take part in them.

It's going to be a few more tough weeks ahead but to inspire and help you in your spiritual journey we are also making available some of our previous seminar audio recordings which you can listen to for free! We hope you find them motivating and that they enthuse you in your spiritual practices. You can see more details of this below.

Best wishes,
London College of Vedic Studies
