Ajita Das teaching social media skills to devotees at the Bhaktivedanta Manor, UK

He’s a multimillionaire, an entrepreneur, a master at business start-ups, a social media genius and a devotee. And on Saturday 20th May, Ajita Das shared his skills and experience with devotees, teaching them how to use social media to spread Krishna Consciousness even more.

Around fifty devotees gathered together at Bhaktivedanta Manor in the UK for the daylong course, which began with Ajita Das encouraging attendees to examine deeply, what they personally felt, was the biggest problem Krishna Consciousness could solve. Armed then, with this insight into their individual motivation for sharing the wisdom of Krishna Consciousness, devotees were taught how to use that, to create a wow factor around Krishna Consciousness and tell people why they should care about it. 

Attendees were also given a lesson in the science of persuasion and Ajita Das gave his tremendous business experience as an example of how to create content and market it on social media in such a way, that it leaves daily impressions on the mind and influences people. 

Devotees were also provided with fresh fruits and tea throughout the day and a delicious and nutritious lunch, which they enjoyed outside in the beautiful sunshine. Ajita Das, noted that of all the locations he has given talks and classes in, the classroom above the goshalla, where the course took place, was his favorite because he got to enjoy a view of the cows throughout the day. 

The day finished with a stimulating question-answer session, with attendees making the most of their time with Ajita Das. Devotees from both the College of Vedic Studies social media team and the Manor’s Communications team attended and were greatly inspired by the session and hope to continue to spread Srila Prabhupada’s message and enthuse new people to become devotees.  

The event was organized by Bhaktivedanta Manor’s Communications team members.
