Short biography

Sriman Prahlad Narasimha Das Adhikari (Pedro Napoleon Vélez Ledesma) was born in 1959, in a Catholic family, in the historic city of Cuenca, Ecuador.

He was the seventh child in the family. In his childhood, he awakens interest in eastern culture by seeing in a magazine a self-burning monk and hearing from his father words like yoga and mind control. Observing his mother's devotion to Jesus Christ, from an early age he was absorbed in thoughts about the Creator.

As a teenager, he began to practice yoga and TM meditation. Having barely reached the age of 14, he began to serve in Yogananda's Ashram, where he first became acquainted with such Vedic sciences as Jyotish astrology, Vastu, Ayurveda, having received this knowledge from a Swami, who also told him about the Maha mantra Hare Krishna and about the Radha Yatra procession in New York, where he saw Srila Prabhupada, the great saint from India.

In 1974, Prabhu first came into contact with the books of Srila Prahupada, and was fascinated by this deep knowledge, which he felt in his heart.

In 1979, he became a monk in the ISKCON movement in Bogotá, Colombia.

In 1981, Prabhu received an initiation into Brahma Madhva Gaudiya Sampradaya Yoga. His Guru, His Holiness Jayapataka Swami Maharaja, a direct disciple of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada gave him his spiritual name of Prahlad Narasimha Das.

Having received the secret Gayatri mantra and initiation into the Brahmins, Prabhu began to share the knowledge of the ancient scriptures to others, comprehending their depth under the authoritative guidance of the Guru Parampara. From that time on, he did not stop serving the mission of his spiritual Master for a day, passing on to people of different strata the knowledge of the Absolute Truth, which was previously available only to kings and brahmanas.

In 1989, Sriman Prahlad Narasimha married a beautiful woman, wonderful vaishnavi, Manorupa. They initiated an amazing journey of serving a mission together, traveling and preaching for 25 happy years, revealing to the world two illustrious sons.

In the early 90s, Prabhu decides to donate all the family's capital to buy a farm and build a Temple nearby Cuenca city, which he documented at ISKCON Ecuador.

In 2001, the family moved to India (Mayapur) to train children in the Gurukula of His Holiness Bhakti Vidya Purna Swami.

At the end of 2019, Sriman Prahlad Narasimha Prabhu returned to his hometown and organized a large mantra festival. The success of this festival inspired him to continue to give Krishna consciousness to the people of Cuenca. This is how we began to develop a powerful plan for the Temple of Vedic Arts “Bhakti Tree” - a multifunctional project with a yoga and kirtan hall, a vegetarian bistro “Good Karma”, an Ayurvedic SPA center and many educational programs and festivals. From 2021, with the blessings of his Guru His Holiness Jayapataka Swami Maharaja, Prabhu began the reconstruction of the ISKCON temple at Giridhari Desh Farm in Ecuador. The farm was gifted by Prahlad Narasimha Prabhu in the 90s.
Since May 2023, the Bhakti Tree project continues to operate near the territory of the Giridhari desh farm. Here Prabhu has a large and beautiful house, which he built 30 years ago and did not use it, since he took his family to Mayapur in 2001 to teach his sons Vaishnava sciences in the gurukula ashram. Prahlad Narasimha prabhu continues his preaching activities online and offline, developing an international community.

Anyone who wants to serve the project can start living and serving in the Farm ashram, and build their own cozy home. prabhu gives favorable conditions for the acquisition of land, which is in his property and also gives full support. On the territory of the farm we develop the Temple and hold festivals, retreats and programs, develop agriculture.

Hare Krishna, dear Prahlad Narasimha prabhu! Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

It is great luck to wish you everything the best on the Day of your appearance in this world for all of us who have come into contact with your personality. It is very difficult for pure devotees to listen to glorifications, but you are so merciful to us that you give us the Opportunity to glorify you, while you humbly convey all thanks to your spiritual master and Srila Prabhupada.

I think that the size and depth of your personality is impossible to understand even after years of acquaintance with you. If you, a faithful follower of Srila Prabhupada, generously and gratuitously fill our hearts with light and love, then what boundless love Prabhupada has, whom you serve so faithfully.

I know that I will never be able to thank you for everything that you have done for me and continue to do. Almost a year has passed since the day of our conversation, and I continue to baskin your love.
In moments of weakness, when it seems to me that I can’t find a way out of the darkness, I turn on the recording with your instructions and the right path is again illuminated by your light. All our roads get tangled and come toa dead end, but you, lovingly, carefully treating every lost soul like a fragile precious stone, direct us to Krishna.

Once you lit the light in your heart for all of us, and from that moment on any day of adversity and storm you continue to shine, staying on the shore and calling out to us like a beacon to remind us where we need to strive.

Low bow to you,
for your service,
Tatiana Kabusheva, Germany

You are one of the brightest examples of a person of our day who devoted his whole life to Krishna. As a pure devotee, you are a gift for those who respect and appreciate you.

The love of God shines from your soul and touches each of us. The lessons you give are always very practical and full of realized knowledge.
By preaching pure love for God, you greatly strengthen our Faith. By the grace of Srila Prabhupada, we are blessed with great Masters like you! | thank you for continuing His mission, saving us fallen souls.

Hare Krishna dear Prahlad Narasimha Prabhu and dear Lalita Sakhi Mataji, Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

With this letter I would like to express my gratitude to Your Family. It is very hard to do it with words, because none of them can really describe this thankfulness. But on the other hand if I do not tell You about it, You will simply do not know it.

A half of year has already passed since astrological consultation in Skype. It was for me such a great blessing and mercy to see You, to speak with You and to receive words of wisdom to all questions, that I had.

Before consultation I was sure, that the previous 2020 year was the worst in my life. I did not understand, what was happening in my life and I was really very upset. Being 30 years old and being disappointed in everything.

Till I have spoken to You and got acquainted with Lalita Sakhi Mataji. And now I understand, that the last year was one of the greatest.

You helped me to realize why all this was happening in my life and what was missing. Thanks to You I have started to change my life.
I visited temple, I have met during this half year sooo many wonderful people and I understood that these people and communication with them are what I was looking for so many years, and this in
Germany, in a country, where people, I thought, never look for God.

I have started to read Prabhupada’s books and to hear Your lectures. And I have felt, that so much has been changed in me. And it is only the beginning. And this all is the result of
only one consultation in Skype. It is so amazing.

Thank You so much for Your wish to help other people and for Your spiritual power to change lives. I am very grateful to meet so wonderful devotees in this life. Thank You for Your
example and for this higher taste.

I look forward telling You in some years how much my life has been changed and I am sure, that there will be so many things to tell. Because everything that is connected with Krishna is not about only «interesting». It is about amazing, incredibly, miraculously and is always the nectar!
My deepest appreciation,
Inna, Germany

Prahlad nrsmha music project

The long-awaited premiere of the album KRSNA
«In his early teenage years the magic mysticism of India knock his heart door, since then Prahlad Nrsmha started to compose songs to describe the overwhelming feeling that Bhakti for Krishna brought to his consciousness.

At 20 years of age he join ISKCON “International Society of Krishna Conciousness” and thru the years he sung this melodies and other wonderful tunes made by his dear friends in Festivals, Sunday Love Feast, reunion with friends and more.

People all over always encouraged him to record the album. But he did not want to be distracted from the tradicional way of offering music to Sri Krishna call Bhajan or Kirtan. At the same time he recognised that most of the people need a kind of a bridge like music they can relate what we call “Western Rhythms" to ease their way towards tradicional Mantra Music.

So after like 40 years all started manifest and with a very kind and generous help from his friends in Kazakhstan they recorded this album call “KRSNA”».
