Vrajabihari dasa’s testimonial about Dharmavira das Prabhu:
Since I’m a conditioned soul I strongly hesitate to write anything about spiritual matters as this would be meddling and simply constitute an offense on my part. However I’m compelled to do so as a form of service to the Vaishnavas, Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga.
My name is Brajbihari das and I accepted Dharmavira das Adhikari as my siksha guru, who is a disciple of His Divine Grace Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupad.
I have been involved with the Iskcon Movement for over 20 years. I was co-founder and co-President of Iskcon Pretoria in South Africa.
A Brief Introduction on Srila Dharmavir Prabhu
I have lived, served and closely associated with Dharmavir Prabhu for more than ten years. As mentioned above he is an initiated diksha disciple of Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupad. He met Srila Prabhupad during his University years in 1975. He joined in 1976 and received initiation that same year. He served Srila Prabhupad full time in Iskcon Temples from 1976 to 1984 by distributing books, making life members and various business activities for Iskcon.
When he left the Temple in 1984, he started his own business. Within just four years he became the biggest Eastern Boutique Chain Store with 13 branches all over South Africa. During that time he got Bollywood actresses Aishwarya Rai and Sonali Bendre to model his TV adverts. You may watch this commercial that Aishwarya Rai did years ago for Dharmaivr Prabhu. It was recently uploaded on YouTube channel by Krishna Balarama Das, one of his sons:

In 1996 he sold his businesses to persue his spiritual interests in India. Presently his sons have an online Eastern clothing Business and also cater for all pooja requirements from the Dham. They’re operating from India and South Africa at 111 Rose Avenue, Lenasia. Their website is: www.radhas.co.za
His Spiritual Realisation
Having lived with him for many years I have been a student, a confidant and an eye-witness to many of Dharmavir Prabhu’s spiritual realisations. I do not wish to elaborate too much on this at the moment. However I can say that being a married man has certainly not prevented him from attaining full God-realisation.
Srila Bhaktivinod Thakur states: grhe thako vane thako sada hari bole dako – whether one is a grhasta or sannyasi one should continuously chant the Holy Name of the Lord. Sri Gauranga Mahaprabhu also declares that: kiba vipra kiba nyasi shudra kene naya / yei krsna tattva vetta sei guru haya – whether one is brahmana, a sannyasi or shudra, he should be accepted as Guru if he knows the science of Krsna.
With great reservation and with folded hands I wish to present to the sincere readers that Dharmavir Prabhu has realised his manjari swarup (eternal spiritual form) in accordance with the teachings of Mahaprabhu’s Sikshastakam. He has not gone to any babaji for quick siddha pranali initiation. But his swarup has been directly revealed by Srimati Jahnavi Devi, the eternal consort of Lord Nityananda.
He is therefore a living example and has upheld Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saravati Thakur’s teaching that we should just continue sincerely chanting the Holy Name in anugayta, under proper guidance. We should not be restless to go here and there. The pure Holy Name will give all perfection. The Holy Name is our Guru and will guide the sincere sadhaka. There’s no need to invent a new method outside Mahaprabhu’s fundamental teachings.
The above revelation regarding swarup is extremely confidential. However Dharmavir Prabhu has allowed me to divulge it for the encouragement of sincere seekers and devotees in general.
Dharmavir Prabhu is currently living in Radha Kunda and is absorbed in chanting minimum 200 000 Holy Names daily. His mission is to assist aspiring seekers who wish to further their spiritual development and realise the goal of life, Krsna Prem. His contact details are provided below.
Besides being a fully realised devotee, Dharmavir Prabhu has various qualifications and has studied many sciences:
Accounting Science Graduate
Astrologer and Palmist
Basic Aura Healing
Intermediate and Advanced Aura Healing
Reiki Healing up Grand Reiki Master
Advanced Shambavi Healing
