As a non-Hindu, what made you learn about Hinduism?

BY : Jahnu Das

Srila Prabhupada’s books and ISKCON made me learn about sanatan-dharma - the eternal religion.

When I joined ISKCON 1982 in Copenhagen, I learned, I was not the body and its culture, but the eternal soul within. In ISKCON I learned who God is, and I learned the method of how to get back to Him.


ISKCON offers the most original, systematic, ingenious, advanced and detailed system of knowledge to explain the reality we live in. Note, I'm not expressing an opinion here, I am merely stating a fact.

There are no philosophical, existential, social, religious, meta-physical, or theological questions in the world, that are not answered in depth in the ancient Vedic tradition followed by Hare Krishna .

So in ISKCON, by the grace of the founder-acharya Srila Prabhupada and his disciples, I learned to know myself and the world, as well as God, and how we are all meant to inter-relate. IOW, I learned how to live a happy and content life, even in the face of misery and adversity. In ISKCON I learned, and experienced what real happiness means.

Real happiness is the happiness that comes from the soul, as opposed to unreal happiness - happiness that comes from the body and its senses.

I owe my life to Srila Prabhupada and his ISKCON.

Krishna says:

O learned Uddhava, those who fix their consciousness on Me, giving up all material desires, share with Me a happiness that cannot possibly be experienced by those engaged in sense gratification.

--Srimad Bhagavatam 11.14.12
