Krishna Consciousness in South Korea

During His manifest pastimes, Srila Prabhupada did not visit Korea, but reading from His letters in the Vedabase, we can learn that His disciple Trivikrama Swami was trying to obtain a preaching visa while residing in Japan (letter to Trivikrama – Honolulu 9 May, 1976), went there for three weeks and even managed to make a pamphlet in Korean which His Divine Grace greatly appreciated (letter to Trivikrama – Honolulu 15 May, 1976).

We can also see how He encouraged disciples stationing in the eastern part of the world to go there as well (letter to Sudama, 19. Sep 1971 and letter to Cyavana – London 1 August, 1972).

I did not have a chance yet to research into the subject so I don’t know whether a preaching centre was established or not in the early days, but I am sure that many nice devotees kept on going there to do sankirtana. read more
