In the year 1965 a 69 year old man boarded the cargo ship “Jaladuta” as a free passenger to the USA. This was his first journey outside India and he was a sannyasi. No one knew that his mission was to make the whole world happy with the chanting of “Hare Krishna” in music, dancing, eating of prasadam and a simple philosophy of LOVE for God and mankind. The rest is history, With more than 725 centers all over the world, millions of books distributed and followers in every nook and corner, the movement started by Srila Prabhupada is here to stay! This year we like you to join in celebrating the life and teachings of a great sage who walked amongst us with love and compassion for humanity.
