Shuttle Service

£1 per person for a ticket – taking you from Stanmore Station to Bhaktivedanta Manor and back. The reason for the cost is to ensure your space is guaranteed and that an accurate use of bus spaces can be planned ahead of time.

Lord Rama is a powerful incarnation of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, manifesting as an ideal king. He appeared in the Treta-yuga, more than two million years ago.

During His activities while on Earth, Lord Rama demonstrated high moral values and acted as the perfect son, student, brother, husband and King.  His extraordinary adventure is marvellously depicted  in the famous epic The Ramayana.

The Rama Navami celebration observes the birth of Lord Rama, and is one of the most auspicious days in the Vaisnava calendar.
