The VEDA IN GUYANA as introduced by a Delhite

The Vedas the ancient Hindi scriptures that address an Indian lifestyle, were first introduced in Guyana by the indentured laborers some 180 years ago.

It was reinforced by Hindu volunteer missionaries during and after indenturedship.

Dr Satish Prakash informs readers of the contributions made by Indians from India who came to Guyana to discuss the Vedas. Dr Satish is building a gurukula in Guyana to teach about the various scriptures and the Indian way of life. It is expected to be opened in 2020 located on the West Coast. Here is a report he penned on one Indian family who went to Guyana from Delhi to preach on and spread the Vedas: 

Seated above, in the middle, is Pandita Rakesh Rani, the spouse of the late Pandit Bharatendranath.  The two of them, with their children, lived in Karol Bagh, Delhi and dedicated their lives in the 70's to edit, publish and circulate copies of a highly respected magazine called JAN GYAAN [knowledge for the masses], and also copies of the four Vedas [see pic above ], both of which we were seeing for the first time.  And, in Guyana, it was the late Teacher Harry Prasad, living in Georgetown, who was in contact with the Pandit Bharatendranath to receive such highly-prized literature.  Today, in seeing this pic above, I bow to the legacy that these two noble souls have left for mankind.  They are sources of tremendous inspiration for me.  I hope the Gurukula in Guyana can replicate their efforts to produce and circulate Vedic literature for people of all backgrounds.
