Lecturers

We are very fortunate to have the association of highly knowledgeable distinguished speakers, who are proficient in the practice of Bhakti Yoga. Their philosophy is based on teachings of Lord Krishna which were expounded in the preaching’s of founder Acharya SrilaPrabhupada.

The lectures reveal the practical application of the sacred traditions, while focusing on the shared essence which unites apparently disparate religious or spiritual paths. The talks are based on teachings found in Bhagavad-Gita, SrimadBhagavatam, Ramayan, Vedas and other spiritual books.

The lectures are key in understanding the fundamental principles of life and embracing healthy habits in our daily lifestyle.
