What is Vrinda
VRINDA is the Vrindavan Institute for Vaisnava Culture and Studies. Established in 1984, VRINDA stands for the united world Vaisnava missions established by our Guru Maharaj Swami B.A. Paramadvaiti under the divine protection of Sri Sri Guru Gouranga Radha Vrajesvar.
After the departure of his spiritual master Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada from this world, Our Guru Maharaj Srila B.A. Paramadvaiti has continued the mission of his Guru with full faith and was blessed by Srimati Radharani to come to Vrindavan to establish the VRINDA Mission in India.
VRINDA has today many centers in Colombia, Chile, Brazil, Ecuador, Argentina, Peru, Central and North America as well as Germany, Switzerland and other European countries.
The VRINDA Institute was established in India in 1990. The Vaisnava culture was brought to the whole world by his spiritual master Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Today the members of VRINDA join together in Vrindavan on a regular basis (october-november).
Vrindavan, VRINDA’s World Center
The World Center of VRINDA is situated in the famous Vrinda Kunja. Vrinda Kunja is a lovely place where devotees from all over the world unite on the principle Vaisnava Festivals to strengthen their faith and to deeply absorb their hearts in the divine Vrindavan atmosphere of chanting and hearing about Sri Sri Radha Krishna and their mercy incarnation Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.Our Guru Maharaj has also attracted many other leading Vaisnavas to join the work of VRINDA.
New centers of VRINDA
VRINDA has expanded by opening Ashramas, Farm communities, schools and Cultural centers. Many Vegetarian Restaurants have been established to help finance the Asramas and to promote Vegetarianism.VRINDA is always trying to open more places to organize the Vaisnava relief work of helping everyone regardless of caste, color, or creed. In an age where ignorance is rampant there is great need for dynamic application of the Vedic principals for a healthier, spiritual society. VRINDA has a potent force of men and women with integrity who are fulfilling that urgent need. You can also organize VRINDA meetings in your home. Simply contact VRINDA and you will learn, how to make your life happy, by helping others to hear Spiritual Messages.
Spiritual Embassies – Braja Seva Ashramas
VRINDA plans to connect every country where there is a strong Vrinda mission with Vrindavan through a Braja Seva Ashram. This reminds us of the times, when the Indian Kings from different states would come to Vrindavan to establish their Temples and Dharmsalas there. Reminding us of transcendental Embassies, already several countries started this program to help maintain a temple in Vrindavan and thus engage their members in Braja seva.VRINDA allows us to get the guidance of the devotees of the Lord.VRINDA is giving us the opportunity to be in contact with the greatest sages who have lived in this world by distributing their writings in as many languages as possible. Those books should be read preferably twice a day in the association of other devotees, but at least once a day one should study the books of our great Acaryas.
