    About H.G Bhurijana Prabhu

    H.G.Bhurijana Prabhu first met Srila Prabhupada at 26 Second Ave, and was initiated by Srila Prabhupada in 1968. After preaching in Japan for about a year, in 1970 he opened ISKCON's first Hong Kong center.

In his last meeting in 1976, Bhurijana Prabhu was requested by Srila Prabhupada to help develop the educational system. Since then he has taught both academic and ashrama courses in Gita-Nagari and Vrindavana and has conducted several teacher training courses in Vrindavana. In 1987, in Vrindavana, he began the Vaisnava Institute for Higher Education, where he has taught courses in teaching, writing, and the main books of Srila Prabhupada -- Bhagavad-gita As It Is, Srimad-Bhagavatam, The Nectar of Devotion, The Nectar of Instruction, and Sri Isopanisad.   To fulfill Srila Prabhupada's desire, he is now organizing degree courses on Srila Prabhupada's books, especially the first six cantos of the Bhagavatam.

  • Shubha Vilas, author, motivational speaker and storyteller, holds a degree in Engineering and Patent Law, but he chose to leave the mainstream society to live a life of contemplation with a deep study of scriptures. His significant readers are children and adolescents because of his natural animated style of storytelling that excites readers tremendously. Meaningful education that creates character in children is his key passion.

  • he Ramayana is not a story. It is a way of life. It is the game of life. Stand Strong is the fourth book in Ramayana: The Game of Life- The bestselling series.
