    Jewels of ISKCON Chicago

    This is a weekly initiative to recognize devotees who make up such an integral piece of the community in Chicago, but oftentimes perform their service behind the scenes year after year.

    This week meet the Mahapatra Family!!!

    Their story began in 2001 when they first started coming to the ISKCON Chicago temple, driving all the way from Indiana.

    In 2003, they moved to the Chicago area, where they started coming to the temple programs without fail. During that time, they also became actively involved in bhakti vriksa gatherings at Gajendra Moksha Prabhu and Carana Renu Mataji’s home. Their convictions deepened in their association and they increased their chanting and service.

    A gifted singer, Reena Mataji provides singing lessons at the temple and organizes bhajan performances for festivals. She also regularly sings for the Deities, as does her son Vedanta, who is also an expert mridanga player.

    Satyabrata Prabhu is the temple’s photographer for all the major festivals and events. He and his family also generously open up their homes for regular kirtan programs.
