Govinda Club

Govinda Club Budapest

If you are not afraid to think differently

Every Tuesday @6pm

Govinda Club is a once a week gathering for open-minded seekers, for those who are not satisfied with materialistic values and looking for a spiritual meaning to life.

Every Tuesday evening we have guest speakers and informal discussions on questions about the world, transcendence and ourselves. The programmes start and finish with chanting and mantra meditation to create the right atmosphere for elevating our consciousness. And at the end, we invite everyone for a light snack of lemonade and sweets.

Govinda Club is free and open to everyone.

Venue: 1051 Budapest, Vigyázó Ferenc utca 4.



Budapest Kirtan Jam

Every Friday @6pm

Friday evenings from 6 pm, we welcome everyone to our community mantra night, the Budapest Kīrtan Jam.

What is kīrtan and how does it become jam? The basis of kīrtan is mantra, a Sanskrit word that is made up of manasa and trāyate. Manasa means mind or consciousness and trāyate is to liberate. In other words, mantra is the sound or combination of words that will liberate our mind or consciousness.

The second element of kīrtan is music. Using music, kīrtan appeals to and focuses the mind. Chanting the mantra to different tunes and rhythms, we create dynamic, collective meditation. And last but not least, the third but indispensable ingredient is You!

So the participants, the music and the mantra combine together to create the kīrtan jam. Professional musicians and spontaneous participants, newcomers and seasoned jammers, shy people and confident singers all take part. It doesn’t matter who you are, just add your own individual flavour to cook up a guaranteed extraordinary experience, the sweetest Kīrtan Jam!

The Event is FREE and everyone is welcome!

Besides the regular programmes we plan to have lots of exciting events through the summer: camps, walking pilgrimages and festivals.

Venue: 1051 Budapest, Vigyázó Ferenc utca 4.
