Meet Bhuvani Sundari Devi Dasi
Bhuvani Sundari Devi Dasi is a disciple of His Holiness Bhakti Dhira Damodara Swami and is based in Lagos, Nigeria.
She is part of a sankirtan team of 3 devotees. Along with Amrta Gopal Prabhu and Ekanath Prabhu, she goes out on Sankirtana in Lagos twice a week for approximately 3 hours each time.
Bhuvani Sundari Devi Dasi has been distributing books for the last 2 years. In a recent conversation, she was asked to explain what motivates her to go out on sankirtana. She explained that the reason behind her commitment to sankirtan is to create awareness of who Krsna is and to encourage people to chant the holy name. She further described how blissful she feels when she sees people dancing and chanting the holy name together with the devotees.
She recounts the following story:
“Recently a lady approached us on Sankirtana wanting to know who Krsna is. She also wanted to understand the meaning behind what we were doing. I explained that Krsna is the name of God and that He is all attractive. The lady was curious about the origins of the name as she had not heard it before. We had a discussion regarding the Sanskrit origin. I then showed her a picture of Krsna which amazed her. We then chanted together for a little while and she left after purchasing some of Srila Prabhupada’s books.”
Harinama Sankirtana ki Jaya!
