Description of course

You may think of a demon as a ghastly one-eyed creature with ferocious teeth and fiery weapons. Indeed, ancient tales talk of the perpetual struggle in the universe between demigods and demons. The divine and demoniac, however, can also exist within the same individual! We all exhibit traits of both, perpetually struggling between the higher and lower nature.

The celebrated teacher, Bhaktivinoda Thakur, ingeniously describes how we each have ‘demons’ within our hearts – habits, mind-sets, misconceptions and character flaws which distance us from being happier, healthier and more spiritually connected. Each of the demons that Krishna kills in Vrindavan represents one of these demons in the heart, and each incident offers valuable insights into how we can cast them out from the consciousness.

Come and hear from His Holiness Candramauli Swami, a distinguished practitioner and spiritual master in the Vaishnava tradition, who will give vivid descriptions of these ancient stories, along with practical tools and techniques to clean the heart, accelerate our spiritual journey, and discover a deeper divine connection.


Description of teacher

Born in New Jersey, USA, in 1947, HH Candramauli Swami came in contact with the International Society for Krishna Consciousness in Denver, Colorado, at the age of 24. In 1973 he began practicing Krishna Consciousness in New York City and shortly thereafter began serving at the New Vrindavan farm community in West Virginia. That same year he received initiation from His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.

In 1986 HH Candramauli Swami accepted the sannyasa order and began preaching in Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio. In the early 1980's he became involved with the ISKCON Prison Ministry in the USA and began visiting prisoners, holding programs in jails, along with regularly writing letters to inmates and sending them Srila Prabhupada's books. This program reached hearts of prisoners, enabled them to relate more to others and transformed them inside and outside.

HH Candramauli Swami is now the leader of the ISKCON Prison Ministry and has worked tirelessly to document the spiritual progression of the world-wide inmate community. His dedication to the welfare, growth and sustainable rehabilitation of these prisoners has culminated in the book "Holy Jail", a touching compilation of the activities of the ISKCON Prison Ministry (IPM). In over thirty years of operation, the lives of hundreds of inmates have changed due to the practice of Krishna consciousness and the support received by devotees.

HH Candramauli Swami continues to travel, share the ancient vedic wisdom and offer spiritual guidance to so many around Europe, USA and India.
