What makes JLF different than other yoga festivals? Comparing apples to oranges?

JLF is a lychee (see exotic fruit).  JLF is a uniquely singular experience that effortlessly reminds you of everything YOU already know! The uplifting kirtan, the expert lectures, ancient yet accessible techniques, people who walk the walk, the Ashram, AND an enlightened Master.  Well, its really not just your typical yoga conference.

Who is Sri Paramahamsa Vishwananda?

Paramhamsa Vishwananda (or Guruji as you might hear some refer to him as), resides at the Ashram, venue of Just Love Festival.  He is an enlightened master who guides and teaches people around the world who are interested in finding a deeper meaning of existence.  It’s definitely likely you’ll see him around the festival grounds or even on the main stage conducting a Vedic ritual or two!  And maybe you might even have a moment to talk to him- if you’d like to!

How is Covid-19 being handled?

The safety of all guests and staff is always our first priority.  We follow all regulations mandated by Germany + we have a team in place to make sure that all guests are comfortable and in adherence of all rules.

Are refunds possible in case of cancellations due to Covid-19 in my country?

Yes.

What should I wear to the festival? Is there a dress code?

Nope, no dress code.  Everyone is welcome to come as they so choose.  Only thing you might want to know, is that a lot of us (especially the nuns/monks) tend not to show a lot of skin but that’s because we are monastics! For anyone who is not, we suggest you wear what makes you feel comfortable.

Wait, nuns and monks? What?!

You might notice that some of us at the festival- working, cooking, musicians, gardening, etc. are wearing brightly colored traditional clothes, yellow, red or orange.  And that’s because those people have taken renunciant vows, dedicating their lives in service.  They make up a part of our community. We also have a vibrant community of individuals, families, and you- that make up the rest.

 

Do I need to bring my own yoga mat?

Yes. Or you can purchase one in our Bhakti Shop at the festival.

 

Why do you serve vegan food?

At Just Love Festival we believe in the principal of striving to cause the least harm possible- ‘ahimsa’. We believe that animals have a right to life when other means of survival are readily available.

Is there a glamping accommodation available this year?

This year, no glamping.  If you need a bit more comfort than standard camping can provide, check out our hotel guide and guesthouses in the area.

What is kirtan?

The word Kirtan comes from the Sanskrit root meaning, ‘Praise’.  Extending that meaning further to what Kirtan is today- we can say that Kirtan is the musical expression of praise; praise to the Source that nurtures and sustains and is summarily all of Creation itself.

Why do some of the men wear skirts (dhotis) and the women wear traditional Indian clothing (sarees)?

Well, the easiest answer is because they like to!  And you can too if you’d like- purchase a saree in our Bhakti shop and let one of our salespeople help you to put a saree or dhoti on.

What is that mark on many people’s foreheads? Should I be worried?

 No worry necessary- people wearing this mark don’t bite usually! The mark you see on some of us is called a ‘tilak’.  According to Yogic tradition, the place between the eyebrows has great spiritual importance as it is the energy center of the sixth chakra and is known as the ‘seat of consciousness’ controlling all faculties of the body and mind.  By the wearing of a tilak, especially one made with sandalwood paste, one increases the ability for deeper concentration and focus.  For more understanding about the specific markings that some are wearing, feel free to ask anyone with it on the forehead.

 

What are the normal weather conditions during the 3 days of the festival?

Unpredictable at best.  We always hope for clear blue skies and sun, but sometimes Mother Nature surprises us with other blessings! Generally the weather is mixed with partial sun and partial cloudy skies with some rain.  Nights can be chilly. 

Is smoking permitted?

The Ashram grounds are a smoke free environment.  Smoking is also not permitted in our campgrounds.  If you need to smoke, we suggest taking a little walk around the outer perimeter of the Ashram, but please be so kind not to litter 😊

Thanks.
