Sanatan Dharma can spread rapidly in Africa if people there understand its importance : H.H. Srivas Das Vanacari, ISKCON

Session on ‘Role of Spiritual Organisations in Awakening Dharma’ on Day 1 of the Vaishvik Hindu Rashtra Mahotsav

H.H. Srivas Das Vanacari, ISKCON, Ghana, Africa

Sanatana Dharma is eternal and infinite. Sanatan Dharma is the basis of all religions. Srila Prabhupada Swamiji founded ISKCON in the USA. Through this he spread Sanatan Dharma all over the world. He translated various texts of Sanatan Dharma into various languages of the world. Mahabharata has a special importance all over the world. Sanatan Dharma is spreading in on a large scale in Africa. There are 57 Hindu temples in Africa. Ramayana and Bhagavad Gita are studied in Africa. Christians there oppose Hindu Dharna. They don’t want Hindu Dharma to spread in Africa; but we face them while chanting ‘Harinaam’ (the name of God).

The people of Africa are in slumber like Kumbhakarna. If they understand the importance of Sanatan Dharma, Sanatan Dharma will spread far and wide. Many people in Ghana embrace Hindu Dharma. Social and spiritual work is being undertaken under the aegis of Sanatan Dharma.
