Virtual Open Evening

Last night we had our virtual opening at the Gurukula and it went fantastically well. In an effort to give the attendees a little flavour of what the school is about we interviewed some students, teachers and parents, even parents whose children have now graduated from the Gurukula. This video is the highlights of some

Bhagavad Gita Verses

WOW!!! We came across this treasure from last year (or maybe the year before) with the lovely chiildren, 7 and 8 year olds, reciting verses from the Bhahgavad Gita and doing actions to them as well. They look like they are dressed up for a drama about Goverdhana lila too. How wonderful and this is

Mother Swati’s B’day

Vegetarian Sushi Making

One of the nice things about the Gurukula is the community of parents who comprise it and who give their time to enrich the learning experience.

Indradyumna Swami Calls the Gurukula

Today at Gurukula we were very fortunate to have H.H Indradyumna Swami speak to the whole school.

Mother Guru’s B’day

If the Gurukula has a heart and soul it has to be Mother Guru!!! Today is her birthday and everyone connected with the Gurukula including all the children send their love.

Everyday during this auspicous month of Kartik, the children in every classroom start the day by singing the Damodasastkam prayers and offer a candle to Yashoda Damodar. Sri Yashoda Damodar Ki Jai!!!

Open Evening Filming

We did a little filming today at the Gurukula with the children, the teachers and some parents. They were all very brave!!!! The purpose of the filming is that this year we can’t have an open day, so we are doing a virtual one instead. With the films prospective parents get a glimpse of what


As this Sunday is Gopasthami, we thought it would be nice if the children could dress up as Gopas and learn about this auspicious past time. Gopasthami is where Krishna and Balarama were old enough to start to tend to the cows of Vrindavana, previously they looked after the calves. Srimati Radharani and Her friends

Today being the disappearance of Srila Prabhupada, the children at the Gurukula honoured this occasion by performing pushpanjali (flower offering) in their classrooms.

Music Class

The lovely devotee children at Gurukula daily learn harmonium and are taught how to sing in kirtan by Lokabandhu prabhu.

The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krishna, therefore advised the cowherd men to stop the Indra-yajña and begin the Govardhana Puja in order to chastise Indra who was very much puffed up at being the supreme controller of the heavenly planets.

“It is very encouraging that you have got license from the Board of Education to continue our children’s school. Kindly organize it nicely and it shall be a great achievement.
