About Bhakta Bandhav

Hare Krsna!

Bhakta Bandhav is a Bhakti Movement founded on the principles of love, compassion, and service to the devotees. We are a worldwide community of disciples and followers of Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja, Bhakta Bandhav Srila Gurudeva, who was the greatest exponent of Bhakti in the 21st century.

Bhakta Bandhav means one who is the dearmost friend, bandhav, of the devotees. In the Adi Purana, Krishna states:

asmakam bandhava bhakta bhaktanam bandhava vayam

"I am the dearmost friend, bandhav, of the bhaktas, and the bhaktas are My bandhav, dearmost friend."

In this way, Bhakta Bandhav is none other than Sri Krishna Himself, and our beloved Srila Gurudeva, who received this title of Bhakta Bandhav from Param Gurudeva, at the time of his initiation in 1947.

Our purpose in Bhakta Bandhav is to serve the devotees and help them progress to the perfection of life--the attainment of Krishna Prema. To this end, along with attending to their personal spiritual development, our members engage in congregational development, seva, and outreach.

Your contribution goes to the furthering of our mission, including book publications, outreach work, and daily prasadam distribution in Vrndavan to thousands of guests and residents of the dhama.

We do not pursue intellectual prowess, material position, or prestige. Our goal is to help people awaken divine love and transcend the fetters of this mundane existence. Then we can enter the transcendental land of love, Sri Vrindavan, where we can live and play in a sweet, loving relationship with Krsna, uninhibited by any mood of awe and reverence for the Supreme Being. In that land of Vrindavana, we will not even be aware that Krishna is the Supreme Godhead. We will see Him only as our dearmost friend, child, or beloved, and we will abide there in an ever new, ever fresh dance of love.
