On August 25, 2023, Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with the temple president of ISKCON Greece, Dayanidhi Das. In the private conversation, which lasted about 15 minutes, Dayanidhi Das shared a copy of “Bhagavad-gita As It Is” in Greek and spoke about ISKCON’s initiatives and objectives in Greece and worldwide.

Prime Minister Modi applauded Dayanidhi Das in a tweet for spreading Indian culture amongst the Greek youth and his active participation in community service initiatives.

In an X post (formerly known as Twitter), Prime Minister Modi said: “In Athens, I had the opportunity to meet Guru Dayanidhi Das Ji. Associated with ISKCON, he has been making innumerable efforts to make Indian culture popular among the youth of Greece. He is also at the forefront of many community service efforts.”

Speaking of the auspicious meeting, Dayanidhi Das said, “Last Friday, 25 August, knowing that the Prime Minister Mr. Modi will visit Athens, encouraged by Madhusevita Prabhu, the local GBC, I went to the Indian Embassy of Athens to meet the Ambassador, for a private meeting with the Prime minister. Everybody where very positive, including the Prime minister himself, and so I had the fantastic opportunity to present our new Greek Bhagavad Gita to the Ambassador before and the Prime Minister himself after,” Dayanidhi continued, “Everything was very positive by the Grace of Sri Krishna the special Author of the Gita her self! Mr. Modi was very happy and kind to me, and we had a wonderful and productive meeting. He appreciated so much the gift of Bhagavad Gita and preaching activities that we do in Greece, especially our prasadam distribution, considered a particularly difficult country.”
