Co-Founder, Trustee, Hands-On Care & Out-Reach London

After attending various schools, at 18 he joined the Hare Krishna movement in the UK at Bury Place, when visiting the Temple for a vegetarian love feast; he practically never left.

Reading ‘Bhagavad-Gita As It Is’ and many other of Srila Prabhupada’s books, and associating with the devotees, increased his taste. He then threw himself with gusto into spiritual practice and soon discovered the joys of book distribution.

Since then he’s done various services, including fund raising, management, preaching and devotee care.

He currently lives near Bhaktivedanta Manor, which he attends regularly, enjoying country walks and sharing Krishna consciousness with interested people in the area and via the Internet.

Ana left Brazil at 19 to explore the world and seek spiritual enlightenment. As the great granddaughter of a native Brazilian Shaman, she never could accept mainstream spiritual paths that were so limiting to her sensibilities.

She worked for many years as a top model, actress and documentary filmmaker, learned four languages and achieved great material success. While based in Paris, she married and gave birth to a baby boy.

Ana first saw the ‘Hare Krishnas’ in Munich in 1988 and years later, was introduced to the yogic philosophy of Krishna consciousness. She finally joined the movement in Manhattan after receiving Srila Prabhupada’s Bhagavad Gita. She accepted a Guru and became Aradhana Devi Dasi.

Today, Aradhana runs a film production company with her devotee husband. She is grateful for this opportunity to serve the spiritual community, helping to bring devotees together to create a health system for assisting all Vaishnavas and spiritual seekers in need.

Following his heart, Roger protested injustice by joining the civil rights struggle, and becoming a staff member of the Northern Student Movement’s Harlem education project. He was beaten and arrested many times for his beliefs.

He was also on the staff of The Henry Street Settlement, and other community centers. He’s worked with visually impaired, mentally challenged and homeless populations.

After meeting Swami Bhaktivedanta and becoming his disciple in 1967 (now Gurudas) he was appointed president of the London Temple where he became friends with The Beatles and recorded “The Radha Krsna Temple” album with George Harrison; the album went straight into the charts.

He was later put in charge of the Krishna Balaram Temple project in Vrindavan. Gurudas then befriended the American ambassador, Kenneth Keating, and procured two tons of food for distribution in the Bangladesh refugee camps. This was the start of “Food for Life”.

Many people have expressed their gratitude for how Gurudas has cared for them and now we are facilitating the Vedic Care Charitable Trust for more structured and stable care.

He is also a photographer, professional counselor and certified Hypnotherapist. He has extensive experience in counseling, spanning over 35 years and has worked with private patients, couples, groups, and has facilitated healing seminars.
