Iskcon Gurukul

Hare Krishna, Dandvat Pranams to all devotees

I am very curious to know about life of children in gurukuls presently.

Is it only meant for those who aspire to become lifetime brahmachari? 

How frequently can parents meet their children?...Is my main concern/question.

Sending children for their spiritual advancement is best and required. But i feel, the same spiritual activities must also be taught by parents in their home side by side(atleast as frequently as every Saturday & sunday) so that the bond with parents is also developed. Also separation is not felt by parents for their kids.

Can someone kindly give all details related to Gurukul life🙇🏻‍♀️🙏

(I am asking out of curiosity, but in future i will need this surely)

 Thank you all in advance, Hare Krishna!😊

    Hare Krsna Prabhuji,


    It is not necessary that only brahmacris aspirants can go to gurukul, all kids can go.

    It is advisable to visit gurukul and do proper inquiry before taking any decision. 

    There are a lot of devotees who are home schooling their kids and there are lots who send their child to regular schools and teach them devotion at home. Each to his own - as per time, place, circumstances.


    Your servant,

    Radha Rasamayi DD
