Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, Radio Mayapur has grown from a modest vision to a thriving platform, connecting devotees worldwide through the power of Krishna Conscious music, podcasts, and positive spiritual discussions.
Located in the wealthiest mile of Africa, the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) Sandton - South Africa has embarked on an endeavor to share the wisdom of Bhakti yoga with a global audience. Their new podcast, "Unveiling the Spirit," hosted by Temple President Vibhu Chaitanya Das, aims to bridge the gap between ancient spiritual wisdom and contemporary living. Through interviews and discussions, the podcast explores the spiritual journeys of devotees, with a particular focus on the ISKCON Sandton and broader South African devotee community, as well as the Krishna Balaram Youth Group. ISKCON News spoke with Vibhu Chaitanya about the podcast's inspiration and potential impact.
