Welcome to Saranagati Village

Rathayatra

We are a community committed to simplicity, sustainability and spirituality. We live in a beautiful valley in the rain shadow of British Columbia's Coastal Mountains. Saranagati enjoys the opulence of great neighbors: meet them and the home they've created and see how they've solved the challenges of living "off the gird" and away from urban and suburban life.  In the 1980s some young and idealistic men and women in North America left their homes in the cities and headed for the countryside, a spiritual frontier where they could depend on the godly gifts of nature.

Spiritual Practices

PrabhupadaWe partake of the perennial spiritual process of bhakti, the yoga of selfless and loving service for the pleasure of the Creator, His creation and His created beings. Our spiritual guide is His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, founder and mentor of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, more commonly known as the Hare Krishna movement.

Srila Prabhupada on farm communities

Please accept my blessings. I am very glad to hear about your new farm-asrama existing there (Canada). We want to develop many such farms all over the world.

It is alright that you have purchased machinery and are using on the farm but if you can do without as much as possible that is better. It sounds as if the living conditions there may be a little extreme. But if the devotees can learn to tolerate as you say they are determined, and can stay and work there that is very good. And I give all encouragement to them.
