H.G. Dravida das


A disciple of Srila Prabhupada, Dravida dasa joined ISKCON in 1973 and has served as an editor and proof-reader for the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust for over 45 years. From 1983 to 1989 he was part of the team that completed Srila Prabhupada’s magnum opus: a commentated English translation of India's jewel of Vedic wisdom, the 18,000-verse Srimad Bhagavatam (Bhagavata Purana). He also helped produce the revised editions of Srila Prabhupada’s Isopanisad, Krsna Book, Caitanya-Caritamrta, and Teachings of Lord Caitanya, and he is part of the team that produces Srila Prabhupada’s Vyasa-puja book every year. In addition to his editing work, he teaches Bhakti Yoga classes at ISKCON’s San Diego temple and other centres in North America.


Throughout all this immersion in transcendental literature, Dravida Dasa developed a love of the Sanskrit language, and especially the elaborate verses of the Bhagavatam and other works of bhakti literature.



His devotion and expertise in chanting form a marvellous combination. He has a been Brahmacari throughout his devotional career.

Whoever hears of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's pilgrimage to various holy places attains the riches of very deep ecstatic love.

Please hear the transcendental pastimes of Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu with faith and devotion. Giving up envy of the Lord, everyone chant the Lord's holy name, Hari.

In this Age of Kali there are no genuine religious principles other than those established by Vaisnava devotees and the Vaisnava scriptures. This is the sum and substance of everything.

ISKCON Scarborough - Gita Jayanti-Friday 25th Dec 2020 - Virtual celebrations and reading of the verses starts at 6 pm!


Hare Krishna!
Please accept our humble obeisances!
All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
All glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga!


This year is an unusual year. One of its many unusual features is that Christmas and Gita Jayanti, the speaking of Bhagavad-Gita (The Song of God), are celebrated on the same day.

Friday- 25th Dec 2020 is the day when we also celebrate Moksada Ekadasi.

One of the Vrata(vow) undertaken during Ekadasi is to read the Holy Scriptures.

What can be more glorious during Moksada Ekadasi day than reading Bhagavad Gita on the very day that marks the 5157th appearance day anniversary?

We (ISKCON Scarborough, ISKCON Toronto, ISKCON Milton) will celebrating this Gita Jayanti virtually in a grand manner by reading all the 700 English verses starting at 6.00 PM sharp!


The advent of Srimad Bhagavad-Gita(Gita Jayanti)
It was on this day 5157 years ago, that Sanjaya narrated to King Dhritarashtra the dialogue between Sri Krishna and Arjuna in the battlefield of Kurukshetra at the place now known as Jyotisha tirtha, and thus made the glorious teachings of the Lord available to the people of the world, for all time.


Srimad Bhagavad-Gita shows a way to rise above the world of duality and the pairs of opposites and to acquire eternal bliss and immortality. It is a gospel of action. It teaches the rigid performance of one's duty in society and a life of active struggle, keeping the inner being untouched by outer surroundings and renouncing the fruits of actions as offerings unto the Lord.


Srimad Bhagavad-Gita is a source of power and wisdom. It strengthens us when you are weak, and inspires us when you feel dejected and feeble. It teaches us how to resist unrighteousness and follow the path of virtue and righteousness.


The teachings of the Gita are broad, sublime and universal. They do not belong to any sect, creed, age, place or country. They are meant for all. They are within the reach of all. The Gita has a message for the solace, peace, freedom, salvation and perfection of all human beings.
Anyone who gifts a Bhagavad-Gita to a deserving person on this day is bestowed profuse blessings by Lord Krsna






We welcome you, your family and friends to join the following link to recite/hear the entire Gita verses and to partake the unlimited blessing of the Lordship.

Summary: When Lord Krsna was in Indraprastha, a demon named Salva attacked Dwaraka with his flying iron city and the Yadu heroes including Pradumna, Satyaki and others battled with the demon for 27 days and nights.

Lord Krsna retuned to Dwaraka and fought with Salva with his Saranga bow, Kaumodaki club and finally beheaded Salva with His Sudarasana Chakra. The fascinating pastime also included dramatic illusions including the one where Vasudeva (Lord Krsna's father) was beheaded by the demon.
