Vaisesika Prabhu

In his youth, William Suczek spent years searching for God and for the meaning of life. His prayers and intense austerities, which included vows of poverty, fasting and silence- unusual for a teenager were answered when a friend gave him a copy of Back to GodHead magazine in 1973. As soon as he saw the photo of A.C. Bhaktivedanta Srila Prabhupda the founder of the Hare Krishna movement, he knew that his search was over.

The Knowledge in the magazine inspired him so much, that with the help of his mother, he immediately began visiting the ISKCON temple in San Francisco. Within a few months he had moved into the temple to become a full time monk. In a short time he had received initiation from his spiritual master, Srila Prabhupada, and then received the name, Vaisesika Dasa.

Since then he has devoted his life to the mission of his spiritual master. He has been continuously reading, studying and distributing to the masses, the Vedic Knowledge contained in the translations and commentaries of His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada. For thirty-six years Vaisesika Prabhu has been traveling, lecturing, counseling and inspiring devotees and other serious aspirants of spiritual life throughout the world.

Recently Vaisesika Dasa has begun initiating disciples into the disciplic succession that has inspired him so, fulfilling the order of his guru-maharaj to perpetuate his teachings and spiritual movement for the uplifting of the whole human society.

Vaisesika Prabhu is the president of the temple ISKCON Silicon Valley and has implemented many projects there.

Vaiyasaki Prabhu

Internationally recognized for his musical abilities to perform the ancient art form of Kirtan & Bhajan, Vaiyasaki Das provides a rare opportunity to experience a taste of authentic devotional music from the Vedic tradition.
Though born in London, England, Vaiyasaki Das came of age in Winnipeg, Canada. After many years in the music business and a personal search for the divine he is now one of the premier singers on the kirtan circuit. Starting out as a rock and blues guitarist with a penchant for singing, his taste for Indian culture came at an early age.

By 1970, he found himself back in London and enamored by Krishna devotion. Soon, in 1973, he was committed to the path of devotion, or bhakti-yoga, and, just two years later, he received formal initiation from His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami.

On his Guru's request he journeyed to India in 1975, both for personal purification and to proclaim the renaissance of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu's bhakti movement. He travelled the entire subcontinent, and Southeast Asia, serving the mission of bhakti-yoga.

By 1978, he arrived in Bangladesh, where he imbibed the culture through his pores, becoming fluent in Bengali and learning the ways of the local people. On a boat trip down the Meghna River, he chanced upon a local kirtan band on their way to a festival. Deciding to follow these happy minstrels and their soulful kirtan music, he would also attend that same festival, changing his life forever. It was there that he discovered the ancient Bengali art of raga-kirtan, which touched his soul in the deepest possible way. Never before had he heard such angelic singing, and he resolved to use his own considerable vocal talents to spread this technique around the world. He returned to London with his own style of kirtan, a blend of ancient Bengali and modern contemporary music.

His first album was released in 1982 followed by numerous CDs, which are now considered seminal in the yoga/kirtan/world music universe.

Today Vaiyasaki Das is a much sought-after performer, conducting workshops, doing concerts, and leading yoga festivals and retreats worldwide. Sharing his heart through music and chanting is the basis of his life. He has delighted audiences and taught Bhakti-yoga in 64 countries with people from all walks of life and cultures, and performs his music with a mission to uplift the consciousness of the planet.

His considerable knowledge of the vast repertoire of Indian bhajans and kirtans has provided the foundation for a new generation of artists, in the flourishing genre of music for yoga and mantra meditation.

Vaiyasaki Das's CDs include: The Way of Love, Charana Kamal, Kirtan Rasa, Hari-Nam-Ananda, Transcendence, Vrindavan Chandra, Chaitanya Chandra, Ratha-Yatra USA, The Turning Point, Best of Vaiyasaki, Sri Krishna Divya Nam -the beautiful divine name, & Kirtan Explosion -high energy kirtans.
