Bhakti, My Choice – A New Course for Girls 
One of our 2015 goals is to encourage, interact and provide more facility for our youth. This fresh course for girls aged between 12 to 17yrs aims to broaden their spiritual experience. Learn devotional arts (playing instruments, Deity worship, presenting philosophy, book distribution, harinam and more) among friends and boost self confidence. Our aim is to help our youth be comfortable in their devotional identity and give them reasons and experiences to help them choose bhakti. 
Saturdays (starting January 31st), from 5pm to 7pm. Please contact Rukmini on 0845791080 or rukminidd@yahoo.com
Life Lessons from the Bhagavatam
Fulfilling another goal: to equip devotees through study of scripture, we invite you to join this class. This open course allows both the beginner and the old-timer entrance into the Bhagavatam by meeting the great personalities in its pages. Series One, Dhruva Lila, focuses on the lessons of hope, faith, and determination. 
Starts Thursday, January 29th from 6pm to 8pm in Srila Prabhupada’s Room. Course facilitator is Rukmini Devi Dasi.
