29 August Opening Day. On the 29 August 2015, after many years in the planning and building, the magnificent Sri Sri Radha of Devotion & Understanding finally opened. Peter Quest of lovelyplanettv, along with his friend and companion Gill, was privileged to have been invited along to the opening ceremony and caught highlights of this auspicious occasion on video. Thank you to Iskcon Malaysia, Simheswara Dasa and all at Iskcon Malaysia for making this possible. Hari Krishna.
28 August The Day Before the Official Opening... This video is for the lady, a Krishna devotee I believe, who had, I think, travelled to the temple from India. She was sitting next to my friend Gill and was dismayed at not being able to see what was happening on the stage. Gill said to her, "Do not worry. My friend Peter will capture as much as he can and so you will be able to see it later". It is also for my good friend Simheswara Dasa who you can see in the video. Simheswara is the guy who introduced me to Krishna Consciousness back in February 2015 when I arrived in Kuala Lumpur as a volunteer, traveller and film maker and took me under his wing and allowed me free access to the world of Krishna. For that, I cannot thank him enough. Hari Krishna my friend. The World is a better place having people like you in it. Finally, this video is for all my other friends throughout the World who I have met on my travels. The volunteers, the travellers, the Krishna`s and for my friend Gill who`s care and compassion I am in awe of.
Highlights from Lovely Planet tv`s forthcoming films from SE Asia... This video contains selected highlights from Peter Quest`s latest adventures in S E Asia. In late August 2015, against all odds, Peter, accompanied by his friend Gill, travelled to Thailand and Malaysia to fulfil his wish to film the opening of the magnificent new Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple of Devotion & Understanding in Penang. During this visit he also went along to the Erawan shrine in Bangkok where, just a few days before, a terrorist bomb had claimed the lives of both Thai and non Thai victims. Please watch until the end of the video. Near the end Peter pays his respects with footage which is intended as a small tribute to those who lost their lives. The video also features Jim Thompson`s house - a popular Bangkok tourist attraction, Malaysia`s Batu Caves near Kuala Lumpur and Penang tourist attractions as well as highlights from the opening ceremony of the new temple in Penang and an event celebrating the Appearance of Lord Krishna which took place at Iskcon Malaysia HQ in Kuala Lumpur. Coming soon... Please watch out for Peter`s forthcoming individual videos from Penang, Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok featuring many of the scenes from this highlights video, produced by Peter for his website www.LovelyPlanettv.com.

Protecting and caring for cows is one of the most important activities here at New Godruma Dhama.
...Following the Hindu ideal of a simple life in harmony with nature as you would expect on a Krishna farm , cow care is a priority here and the cows,bulls and calf's at New Godruma Dhama live in a atmosphere of peace and tranquility.
...Milked by hand and allowed to bread naturally, the special care these cows receive mean these sacred animals are treated with respect and of course are free from the threat of slaughter just as as our Lord Krishna requested.
...Lovingly cared for throughout their happy life's, our cows at New Godruma Dhama are provided with everything they need.
