There is always a special buzz in the air when Toronto's vibrant Hare Krishna community welcomes back our dear friend, Vaisesika das back to our temple. A disciple of Srila Prabhupada, and a mentor to so many of us in Toronto and around the world, we are always looking forward to his visits. From inspiring classes and hitting the streets with spiritual books, to the rip-roaring kirtans, Vaisesika das keeps us all on our spiritual toes!

We are excited to announce some of the programs and events that you and your family are welcome to take part in:
