Dwarka Prabhu and Chitra dearly love the community of devotees and specifically, the dedication that the devotees show to Sri Sri Radha Kalachandji. This is shown in their loving interactions and care for every member who comes to visit Sri Sri Radha Kalachandji. Indeed, they imbibe the main principal behind Krishna Consciousness: gopi-bhartuh pada-kamalayor dasa-dasanudasa. Serving the dear servants of the Supreme Lord is their meditation.
“Why do you support TKG Academy?” When asked this question, Dwaraka Prabhu answered immediately. “It’s simple. Because this was the first Gurukula established by Srila Prabhupada. He wanted to make the Gurukula grow.
With their monthly donations, their blessings, and their continuous support in assisting other members, they are making Srila Prabhupada’s vision come to fruition. (edit)
