Bhaktivedanta College of Education and Culture

THE COLLEGE

The Bhaktivedanta College of Education and Culture (BCEC) was founded in July 1991 in Durban, South Africa. Brhat-mrdanga Dasa formed the BCEC under the instructions and guidance of His Holiness Giriraja Swami. The college is a forum to discuss and relish the translations and purports of the books of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.

In 1995 The Bhakivedanta College of Education and Culture was introduced in Mauritius from South Africa by His Grace Brhat-mrdanga Das.

The BCEC conducts courses based on the books of His Divine Grace A.C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada in various countries around the world. The various courses benefit both the devotees and those interested in learning about the philosophy of Krishna consciousness.
