|Sarva-drik dasa ACBSP, was fortunate to join Srila Prabhupada’s ISKCON in July 1973 in Portland, Oregon and accepted initiation the same year. His Grace Deena Bandhu prabhu was the Temple President at the time and was instrumental in bringing him to the shelter of Srila Prabhupada’s lotus feet. In the years since, he has served in North American ISKCON communities as Vice-President, Head Pujari, Head Cook, New Bhakta Leader, and congregational preacher.
He and his wife, Sudevi devi dasi, moved to “Prabhupada Village,” North Carolina in 2009. While there they travelled throughout North Carolina and Virginia for Bhakti Vriksha and prison preaching. In November 2018 they sold their North Carolina farm property and moved permanently to Mayapur, India. Sarva-drik still travels as much as possible to ISKCON temples in Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana, and adjoining preaching fields. He is very inspired to see the exceptional qualities of young devotees that have come to serve in Srila Prabhupada’s ISKCON and feels blessed to encourage them in their service to the mission of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, as we understand it from Srila Prabhupada.
