Kadamba Kanana Swami, a disciple of Jayadvaita Swami, started his spiritual life in Vrndavana, the Holy land of Krishna, where he immediately felt he had found his home. He joined ISKCON in Vrndavana shortly after Srila Prabhupada’s departure from this world, and served there in various management positions until 1984. After a one year break in Australia he returned to India, this time to take charge of the construction of Srila Prabhupada’s Samadhi in Mayapura, where he remained until 1990. He liked the pioneering spirit of working in India and above all he liked to stay in the Holy Dhama. In 1990 he became the Temple President of the Krsna Balarama temple in Vrndavana and remained in that position until 1995. After that he began to travel and preach around the world and in 1997 he received sannyasa. Besides preaching in Europe, South Africa, India and Australia, he still has some involvement in supervision of the Vrndavana temple, and is a regular facilitator for the MI Bhakti-sastri Course.
