This website is aimed at promoting the mission, teachings, lectures and the world tour of a world prominent teacher in Gaudiya Vaishnava lineage, Srila Bhaktivedanta Vana Goswami Maharaja. He is also our beloved Gurudeva (spiritual master).
Gurudeva received diksa (spiritual initiation) from Srila Bhakitvedanta Vamana Goswami Maharaja. However, he received siksa (spiritual knowledge) from Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja. They are both eminent teachers in the Bhakti Yoga tradition of Brahma-Madhava-Gaudiya lineage, also better known as the ‘Hare Krishna’ movement.
After receiving instructions from His spiritual master, Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja, Srila Gurudeva has been traveling incessantly around the globe since 1997. His preaching has taken him to all four corners of the globe including India, Brazil, USA, England, Holland, China, Mexico and many more countries. A very demanding tour schedule leaves him very little time for rest, usually a flight on average every four days. He claims that his actual rest is when he is giving lectures about God and spiritual life. Such is his deep attachment to the service of his spiritual master!
His main objective is to preach the practices of pure Bhakti Yoga thereby enabling people to attain self-realization and develop love towards the Supreme Being, Krishna. His living achievement is that he has changed and touched thousands of lives with his humility, leadership and unique perspective of presenting the complex topics of bhakti yoga in a simple way.
