ISKCON Scarborough - "Srila Prabhupada - Our Founder Acarya" seminar next Sunday

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


We are happy to host "Srila Prabhupada - Our Founder Acarya" seminar next Sunday (12th Aug 2018) from 11 am to 12 noon at ISKCON Scarborough.


Founder Acarya Series by HG Suresvara Dasa

For millennia the teachings and the rich culture of bhakti-yoga, or Krishna Consciousness, had been hidden within the borders of India. Today, millions around the globe express their gratitude to Srila Prabhupada for revealing the timeless wisdom of bhakti to the world.

Śrīla Prabhupāda did not simply carry the message of Lord Caitanya and Lord Krishna to us. While that in itself is a glorious task, Śrīla Prabhupāda, as the Founder-Ācārya, created the very foundation, function and vision of ISKCON as a global community aiming for the “re-spiritualization of the entire human society.” Śrīla Prabhupāda’s role, is ongoing. His presence is to be felt in the life of every ISKCON devotee today, and in the lives of devotees many centuries into the future. Understanding how Śrīla Prabhupāda is in the center of our lives and our society, and knowing how to keep him in that essential role, is the purpose of this course.

Please join in to participate in this series of Seminars - Founder Acarya, facilitated by HG Suresvara Dasa conveniently located all over the GTA to understand and celebrate the preeminent position of Srila Prabhupada in ISKCON as well as every follower's foundational relationship with him.

About the Speaker:-
Suresvara dasa Vanacari joined the Hare Krishna movement in 1970
and received 1 st and 2 nd initiations from Srila Prabhupada in 1971 & 1972. Over the years Suresvara’s service has centered around Prabhupada’s books—studying them, distributing them, helping to produce them, writing articles based on them, and now, teaching from them.
In 2011, while teaching at the Mayapur Institute for Higher Education, his concern over the lack of connection many younger devotees were feeling for our founder-acarya reached a tipping point, so that year he began researching and presenting the seminar, “Srila Prabhupada, Our Founder-Acarya.”

With the encouragement of the Mayapur Institute and the GBC committee, “Srila Prabhupada’s Position,” Suresvara has been travelling the ISKCON world with the founder-acarya series since 2011, helping devotees deepen their relationship with, commitment to, and love for our beloved founder-acarya, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
Prabhupada.

ISKCON Scarborough - Special class by HH Bhaktimarga Swami coming Sunday - 5th Aug 2018




Hare Krishna!
Please accept our humble obeisances!

All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

All glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga!

We are very pleased to inform you that HH Bhaktimarga Swami will be giving a special class coming Sunday at ISKCON Scarborough. The program starts at 10.30 am.


About HH Bhaktimarga Swami:
Over forty years ago it was a youthful quest for the life that leads Chatham, Ontario born Bhaktimarga Swami, (formerly John Peter Vis), to adopt an Eastern order of monastic life that landed him in the Hare Krishna movement. Since that time, as a celibate monk, Swami has evolved as an instructor of bhakti-yoga and mantra meditation. His presentation on this subject of life, based on the popular Hindu text, “Bhagavad-gita” is lively, candid and informative.

With a background in fine arts, Swami also developed a passion for the performing arts. Even in the course of his duties as a monk, he expands his portfolio and manages to take an active role in theatrical productions from epics of ancient Indian origin. Casting, scripting, and directing morality theatre takes him annually to venues from North America to India and Africa.

Finally, Bhaktimarga Swami achieved a remarkable feat in 1996 when he went the way of a pilgrim and walked on foot cross country from west to east and then back for a return journey from Cape Spear, Newfoundland to Vancouver Island in 2003, going full circle. He likes to share his unique experiences and fond memories on the road after trekking 16,000 kms. Swami is a consistent feature in “The Longest Road”, a recent National Film Board documentary detailing the history of the people who shaped or were shaped by the Trans Canada Highway, the world’s longest continuous maintained road.
