Brief introduction to HH Bhakti Charu Swami Guru Maharaj

His Holiness Bhakti Charu Swami is a disciple of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada, the founder acharya of ISKCON. His Holiness Bhakti Charu Swami, ISKCON Guru and a member of GBC, was born in Bengal in 1945. His Holiness Bhakti Charu Swami spent most of his early life in the city of Calcutta. In 1970, he left India to study in Germany. Coming across Vedic literatures while in Germany, he discovered the richness of India’s spiritual heritage. In 1975 he returned to India to wholeheartedly pursue the spiritual path.

After thoroughly studying the Vedic scriptures, His Holiness became aware of the need to find a spiritual master who could lead him on a sound spiritual course. After searching for one year without coming across a spiritual master to whom he could fully surrender, he felt despondent and disappointed. When he almost gave up his hope to find his spiritual master, he came across a book called The Nectar of Devotion by A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.


Becoming engrossed in the depths of that literature, he realized that he had found his spiritual master and the path for which he was searching. As he continued to read Srila Prabhupada’s works, his conviction grew stronger, as did his desire to meet Srila Prabhupada. At that time, Srila Prabhupada was in America. His Holiness joined the temple in Mayapur and became more involved in devotional service to the Lord, all the while awaiting Srila Prabhupada’s return to India.

When Srila Prabhupada returned to India at the end of 1976, the meeting between His Holiness Bhakti Charu Swami and Srila Prabhupada finally took place. From their very first meeting, Srila Prabhupada gave His Holiness the assignment of translating his books into Bengali and made him his Secretary for Indian Affairs. Within only a few months, Srila Prabhupada gave him initiation into the disciplic succession and soon thereafter, awarded him the order of Sannyasa in 1977.

Along side his official responsibilities, His Holiness translated all of Srila Prabhupada’s works on major Vedic literatures, consisting of more than fifty volumes of books, into Bengali, as Srila Prabhupada had instructed in their very first meeting. Subsequently, he became a member of the Governing Body Commission of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness and served as the Chairman of the Governing Body in 1989. Since then he is serving ISKCON as a Governing Body Commissioner and an initiating Guru.

In 1996, His Holiness took on the mammoth task of making a biographical video epic on the life of his spiritual master, A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada. This video series, entitled Abhay Charan has been seen all over the world, as well as on Indian National Television. His Holiness is also developing projects in Ujjain, India. In February 2006, His Holiness constructed a beautiful temple in Ujjain. This is a very beautiful marble temple which is built in less than 10 months! The temple has three huge alters for the worship of Sri Sri Madan Mohan, Sri Sri Krishna Balaram and Sri Sri Gaura Nitai. This temple also have an Iternational Guest House, Govinda's Restaurant, Gift and Srila Prabhupada book shops, a Prashadam shop and a separate Jagannath temple where a Mid-day Meal praject is functioning. This project in conjugation with M.P. Government and ISKCON Ujjain feads more than 30,000 students. ISKCON Ujjain is also running various other departments such as Deity dress manufacturing, temple altars construction, Murti project which make deities of Srila Prabhupada and Guru Parampara. A primary school had already started to built up in ujjain and also multistory apartments are also going to be ready for the devotees all over the world to stay.

  • Bhakti Charu Swami is from an aristocratic Bengali family and spent most of his early childhood in urban Kolkata. He met with Srila Prabhupada at the end of 1976 after a long and intense search for a spiritual teacher. This initial meeting resulted in Bhakti Charu Swami being assigned to translate the books of the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust into the Bengali language. He was immediately made responsible as the secretary for Indian affairs and within a few months, Srila Prabhupada gave him initiation. Soon thereafter, Srila Prabhupada awarded Bhakti Charu Swami the order of sannyasa. In addition to his official responsibilities, Bhakti Charu Swami continued to translate all of Srila Prabhupada’s works, more than fifty volumes, into Bengali. Bhakti Charu Swami is an initiating spiritual master in ISKCON and has disciples all over the world.
  • He became a member of the GBC in 1987 and served a term as chairman from 1989-1990. Bhakti Charu Swami’s GBC zonal assignments include Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh, India and is co-zonal secretary for Calcutta and Mayapur, West Bengal, and North Orissa and Puri.
  • Besides the significant energy Bhakti Charu Swami has spent on the development of the Mayapur project, the Hare Krishna movement’s world headquarters, he has headed the establishment and the continuing development of a large temple project in Ujjain, Gujarat, where he spends significant amounts of time. Under his direction, more than 20,000 school children in Ujjain receive a daily meal and the program is expected to expand further. Another major accomplishment of Bhakti Charu Swami is the production of an epic biographical video series, Abhay Charan. Over 100 episodes illustrate the life of Srila Prabhupada and have been televised in India and other parts of the world.

HH Bhakti Charu Swami Maharaja Glorifying Srila Prabhupada’s Journey to USA ISKCON 50th Anniversary of Srila Prabhupada’s Jaladuta Yatra at Kolkata, 13th August 2015

Of all the time, this particular phase, which is known as Kali-yuga, is the most degraded. This is the age when adharma becomes perfectly established. As Krishna said, 
yada yada hi dharmasya
glanir bhavati bharata
abhyutthanam adharmasya
tadatmanam srjamy aham
[Bg. 4.7]
“When there is a decline of religious principles and irreligiosity (adharma) prevails, then in order to establish dharma, I descend Myself.”
Therefore, in this age to re-establish dharma Sri Krishna came as Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. Appearing as Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, Krishna gave the most wonderful gift to this world, which is called sankirtana yajna. It has been mentioned in Srimad-Bhagavatam,

kaler dosa-nidhe rajann
kirtanad eva krsnasya
[SB 12.3.51]

Kali-yuga is an ocean of sinful activities but in this age there is one great advantage, there is one great benediction: just by chanting the holy name of the Lord one can become free from material bondage and go back to the spiritual sky. 

Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s gift is so wonderful, that it not only takes one back to the spiritual sky, but it takes him to the topmost region of the spiritual sky, which is known as Goloka Vrindavan. In order to pave the way for the people of this age of Kali back to Goloka Vrindavan, Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu came and inaugurated this sankirtana yajna. This sankirtana yajna, this process of sankirtana, the congregational chanting of the Hare Krishna Maha-mantra

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare

not only takes one back to the spiritual sky, but gives him the opportunity to become involved in Radha-Krishna’s most intimate pastimes in Vrindavan

This gift of the Supreme Personality of Godhead had never been distributed before. Krishna came in various incarnations and delivered innumerable amounts of living entities, but never ever Krishna bestowed thisbenediction. Therefore this gift is considered to beanarpita, which had never been given before. And thatgift is the love of Krishna in Vrindavan in the most intimate relationship that Krishna displayed with the cowherd damsels of Vrindavan, Vraja gopis, in madhurya rasa. 

Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu distributed this only in India, but Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu predicted that it will be distributed, it will be broadcast all over the world in every town and village. 
prithivite ache yata nagaradi grama
[Chaitanya-bhagavataAntya-lila 4.126]
This prediction Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu made 500 ago and about 460 years back this had been recorded by Srila Krishna Dasa Kaviraja Goswami. This prediction was made at a time – what to speak of every town and village – when people did not even know how many continents were there. Columbus at that time had just discovered America. People were not aware of Australia. People were also not aware of Africa. At that time when Chaitanya Mahaprabhu made that prediction, that in every town and village it will be distributed, it appeared to be a poetic exaggeration. But the words of the Supreme Personality of Godhead never go in vain. Whatever He says becomes a reality, and in the recent past we have seen how this incredible prediction has become a reality.  

It happened in an amazing way, in the most inconceivable way: a 70 year old devotee of Krishna went to America in a cargo ship and he started his journey from this very place, Calcutta, Khidirpur Dock. On thisday, 13th August, Friday, 1965, Srila Prabhupada embarked on this voyage, not in a passenger ship, but in a cargo ship that carries goods from one port to another, from one continent to another. 

Srila Prabhupada persuaded the owner of ScindiaSteamship Company, Srimati Sumati Morarjee, to give him a passage to go to America. Although initially she was extremely reluctant to let Srila Prabhupada go on such a voyage, eventually she succumbed to his pressure and persuasion and she enabled him to go to America. 

Srila Prabhupada arrived in America, where he did not know a single person. The person, Gopal Aggarwal, who actually sponsored his visa was the only contact he had in America and he wrote a letter to him mentioning when he was arriving. Fortunately Gopal Aggarwalarranged some travel agency to receive Srila Prabhupada in New York harbor and arranged for a bus trip to Butler, Pennsylvania, where he was living. 

Srila Prabhupada not only did not know anyone there,Srila Prabhupada did not have any money. He did not have any foreign exchange whatsoever. All he had was 40 rupees, which had no value in America at that time. 

So in this way Srila Prabhupada at the age of 70 goes to America in 1965 and after an enormous struggle he established an institution with a handful of young Americans, young American boys and girls who became attracted to him. With them he started this International Society for Krishna Consciousness. 

This is another amazing happening: he started his movement, which he registered in 1966 as the International Society for Krishna Consciousness in a small little storefront in the Lower East Side of New York City, but he named his institution the International Society for Krishna Consciousness. Mind you, a small little storefront where he is situated, registering his institution, and he is calling it the International Society. Well, the lawyer who was registering the organization did not mind that so much, but he had difficulty in accepting “Krishna Consciousness”, so he advised him, “Please don’t call it the ‘International Society for Krishna Consciousness’, rather call it the ‘International Society for God Consciousness’ because people do not know who Krishna is.” And even Srila Prabhupada’s followers, young Americans who were following him at that time, agreed with that and said, “Yes, Swamiji, maybe it will be better to call it the International Society for God Consciousness.” 
But Prabhupada’s response was, “No, I have come here to make everybody understand that Krishna is God. People speak about God but do not have any understanding of who He is.” And Srila Prabhupada made that point, “I have come here to make everybody understand that Krishna is God.” 

And that’s what he did. That was the beginning of the fulfillment of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s prediction that the Krishna Consciousness Movement would spread all over the world in every town and village. Within the short span of 11 years Srila Prabhupada not only spread this movement practically through all the countries of the world, but he established 108 temples in all the major cities of the world.  This is how we can see that in order to fulfill his prediction, Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu reserved the credit to one of His most intimate devotees and that is His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. 

In course of time we will see that the institution that Srila Prabhupada has established, the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), is going to spread this movement all over the world, in every town and village, fulfilling the prediction of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. 


Thank you all very much! All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

[BCS Istagosthi] Evening class in Brisbane at HG Janakraj Prabhu's residence on his birthday 26th December, 2012
Excerpts from the class.
• Krsna consciousness should be exciting, enriching, enlivening.
• How many come to listen to classes is not important how receptive they are is more important.
• energy + energetic together: Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
• energy and energetic separate: Radha & Krsna.
• In Goloka Navadwip they are singing the glories of Krsna, they are always doing Nama Sankirtana.
• Srila Prabhupada created Iskcon for us so that we have the perfect situation to practice our spiritual lives.
• Wherever we go we have devotees to associate with, worship alongwith, to read, chant and dance with. Therefore because of Iskcon we have these facilities.
• When spiritual master leaves, the family is still there, this is a family of Iskcon, we are never alone.
• Never think that Srila Prabhupada has left, he is always there. He is there in vapu and vani. Real aspect of spiritual master is vani or his instructions.
• When you are following spiritual master's instructions you are with him.
• When you are serving his vani then you are actually serving your spiritual master.
• Then someday if we become eligible to enter into the spiritual world then we will again be with the spiritual master.
• Spiritual master actually allures us to the spiritual world. When you serve the vani aspect, then you become qualified to enter the spiritual world.
• Death can come at any time, we must always be prepared. No regrets for the past always looking forward.
• A devotee's prayer is, "O my dear Krsna, please never let me forget you."
• Point from Nectar of Devotion which struck Guru Maharaj and he accepted Srila Prabhupada as his spiritual master.
1. Five kinds of liberation and Guru Maharaj knew only the negative one.
2. God is a person.
• Generally a devotee doesn't want to come back. Once bitten, twice shy.
• But to be a devotee also means to be surrendered to Krsna's will. I don't have any preference, or desire. If Krsna wants I will come back.
The class was followed by a staging of Ujjain DVD and then a sumptuous feast cooked by Sripati Prabhu, Vrindavaneshwari Mataji and others constituting Pizzas, Pastas and loads of ice cream
