Welcoming Jambavan das and Gadhadhara Pandit das to Toronto this Week

The Toronto Hare Krishna Temple is excited to share that we will be welcoming two special guests to our community this week.  HG Jambavan das and HG Gadhadara Pandit das will be visiting Toronto and conducting various programs throughout the city.

Jambavan Das is a Sanskrit translator and expert in Gaudiya Vaishnava theology. He is an expert public speaker and has been a missionary and active member with ISKCON for many years. He is also a professional financial advisor. He is an expert teacher and has been trained to conduct formal Vedic fire yajnas (fire sacrifices where grains and various other items are offered into fire, accompanied by the chanting of mantras).

Gadadhara Pandit Dasa (also known as Pandit) is a monk, lecturer and the first-ever Hindu chaplain for Columbia University and New York University. He speaks at the nation’s leading universities, yoga studios, and retreat centers, inspiring audiences with India’s spiritual wisdom. His unique approach combines teachings of the ancient classic, Bhagavad-Gita, with popular Hollywood movies such as “The Matrix.”
