Prema Sankirtan Das is originally from Croatia, born in an atheistic family. Even as a small child, he was feeling that something was missing in his material life. That feeling led him in search for enlightenment. He was part of different spiritual groups, until he got Srila Prabhupada’s books (Science of Self Realization, Bhagavad Gita As It Is, Krsna Book, Easy Journey to Other Planets, Nectar of Devotion, and Srimad Bhagavatam 1st Canto). He found these at an old bookstore. He then met devotees in 1986, but joined the movement in Florence, Italy in 1991. His main service at the time was Cow Protection. After serving for a few years, he moved to Denmark into Copenhagen temple. He stayed until 1994 learning the art of distributing books. He then moved back and forth to Germany and Croatia until finally arriving to Los Angeles, California in 1999. He is now a veteran in book distribution and has been a celibate monk for over 24 years. He likes to read, study, and distribute these wonderful teachings.
