Jacobus Van Breda du Toit grew up in an small, God-fearing, Afrikaans town called Vereeniging in South Africa. He is now “Kavi Karnapura Dasa”, a practicing Krishna monk and the senior monk of his ashram in Stellenbosch. Du Toit and 6 other Afrikaans Krishna devotees live in the ashram. They maintain a vegetable garden and live according to the Krishna principles.
This radio feature called “AfriKrishna” follows what these monks find rewarding and unique about this eastern religion. A lecturer on world religions also gives an interesting insight into why this movement is occurring in South Africa.
