Following our guru, His Divine Grace Bhakti Vichar Bishnu Maharaj, International Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mission Africa was established in Kampala, Uganda with the mission to engage people in spiritual practices and share spiritual wisdom.
Brief history of how the mission was established:
By the mercy of our guru, His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Vichar Bishnu Maharaj, the International Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mission African Preaching Center (ISKCMA) was incorporated by Chaitanya Chandra Das, who is a disciple of His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Vichar Bishnu Maharaj.
Chaitanya Chandra Das became a disciple of His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Vichar Bishnu Maharaj when he went to Mayapur, West Bengal, India in 2015. He sought out the Gaudiya Math and was accepted as a disciple.
ISKCM was registered in Africa in June 2017. It was a humble beginning in a small one roomed preaching and worship area. At the time of our beginning the Sunday program’s congregation would reach almost 20 people, where all people engaged in kirtan and taking prasadam.
By the mercy of Guru and Vaishnavas local supporters also became engaged in supporting the mission. The center shifted and is currently where there is a nice area for congregation. on 1st of November 2017 ISKCM appointed Purna Chandra Das has a chairperson , a fellow devotee from Odissa, India, who accepted to be the chairperson of the mission in Uganda. All devotees were very grateful and chanted the holy names of the Lord.
In our humble beginning we have engaged in food for life programs and preaching. We welcome all nations to come glorify the name of Sri Hari. In service to Guru and Vaishnavas
