One Saturday, January 9, 2016, the Toronto Hare Krishna Temple will be welcoming Sankarshan das Adhikari for a special seminar entitled, "Pure Devotional Service is for Everyone".  Does that sound like a lofty unrealistic thing to you?  Do you have obligations such as work and family? Do you have responsibilities?  Are you struggling to maintain a regular practice of hearing, chanting, reading, and serving?

If yes, come and find out how you can get on the boat to pure devotional service.  The seminar will begin at 6:30pm and dinner will be served at 8:30pm.

About Sankarshan das Adhikari
Sankarshan Das Adhikari appeared in this world in St. Louis, Missouri, USA on 7 November 1947. He first met his spiritual master, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, in 1971 and was initiated by him on 12 August of the same year. Srila Prabhupada personally told this new young disciple that he was pleased with his sincerity and enthusiasm for spreading the Krishna consciousness movement. Sankarshan Das fully dedicated his life for serving the order of his spiritual master to become a guru and deliver the world. For the last 43 years he has uninterruptedly served his spiritual master’s movement, the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), in various capacities.

In the year 2000, in recognition for his full dedication to Srila Prabhupada’s mission, ISKCON’s Governing Body Commission (GBC) gave him their blessings to initiate disciples. Since that time he has been regularly travelling and lecturing extensively all over the world for reviving the dormant Krishna consciousness in the hearts of all living beings. Well known for his Internet based training program, the Ultimate Self Realization Course, he has attracted over 17,000 subscribers from over 100 different countries who receive a daily inspirational message and personal answers to their questions regarding how to become perfect in Krishna consciousness.

By the way shouldn't it be HG Sankarshan Das Adhikari? Why did kevala Bhakti Das address him directly as Sankarshan Das Adhikari?

Kevala Bhakti das (Keshav) said...

Thank you for the very good question! During recent national meetings, our GBC Bhaktimarga Swami made a presentation about the newcomer-friendliness of our presentations as temples (posters, websites, etc).

He commented that those who are new to our tradition will not understand terms like "HH" (His Holiness) and "HG" His Grace, especially when they are in short form. So he encouraged that we drop the HH and HG from our public-facing write-ups. Given that our website has a lot of traffic from those who are just curious spiritual seekers, we are trying to adhere to this recommendation given by Bhaktimarga Swami. For any internal (devotee-oriented) writeups, we will always include "HH" and "HG".

No disrespect to any senior devotees is intended. I hope that helps! Hare Krsna! :o)

By the way, you will notice that there is no "HH" for recent posts about Gunagrahi Swami and Bhaktimarga Swami as well. We also are no longer using HH and HG for noting visiting guests in our temple calendar.

If you have any further questions or concerns related to this matter, please feel free to email us at info@torontokrishna.com
