Mayapur Institute at ISKCON Juhu

| 3 years ago, 1 min read

ISKCON Juhu is situated upon four acres of prime land and is a stone’s throw from Juhu beach. ISKCON Juhu is the official headquarters of ISKCON INDIA. In early 70’s when Juhu was considered a remote and obscure part of the city, to envision a temple rising here was beyond anyone’s imagination. However, fighting against many odds Srila Prabhupada acquired the Juhu property (which is presently Hare Krishna Land) and promised Śrī Śrī Rādhā-Rāsabihārī Deities who were then housed in small shack, “My dear Sir, please remain here, and I shall build a beautiful temple for You”. A magnificent temple is built on this land for Śrī Śrī Rādhā-Rāsabihārī attracting thousands of devotees every day.

Māyāpur Institute has been regularly conducting Śāstric Training Programs here for the resident brahmacārīs and congregation devotees since about ten years. Recently, Māyāpur Institute conducted Bhakti-śāstrī Course for the resident brahmacārīs. Twenty students successfully completed three units of Bhakti-śāstrī facilitated by our teacher Atul Kṛṣṇa Das.
