|H.G.Bhurijana Prabhu first met Srila Prabhupada at 26 Second Ave, and
was initiated by Srila Prabhupada in 1968. After preaching in Japan for
about a year, in 1970 he opened ISKCON's first Hong Kong center.
Throughout the early 1970s Srila Prabhupada would many times meet with
Bhurijana during Srila Prabhupada's tours of the Far East: Hong Kong,
Japan, Philippines, Fiji, Australia and New Zealand. In his last
meeting in 1976, Bhurijana Prabhu was requested by Srila Prabhupada to
help develop the educational system. Since then he has taught both
academic and ashrama courses in Gita-Nagari and Vrindavana and has
conducted several teacher training courses in Vrindavana. In 1987, in
Vrindavana, he began the Vaisnava Institute for Higher Education, where
he has taught courses in teaching, writing, and the main books of Srila
Prabhupada -- Bhagavad-gita As It Is, Srimad-Bhagavatam, The Nectar of
Devotion, The Nectar of Instruction, and Sri Isopanisad. To fulfill
Srila Prabhupada's desire, he is now organizing degree courses on Srila
Prabhupada's books, especially the first six cantos of the Bhagavatam.
No wonder that his main topic at Govardhan Retreat is Bhagavatam. He
has written several books, including The Art of Teaching, Surrender
Unto Me (in-depth study of the Bhagavad-gita), Studying
Srimad-Bhagavatam, My Glorious Master and "Unveiling His Lotus Feet" -
in-depth study of the 1st and 2nd Cantos of Srimad-Bhagavatam.
