About the Priest
Sundar Maharaj was born in the UK and graduated from university with a degree in Business and Law. Soon after graduation, he decided to dedicate his life for the spiritual upliftment of society and joined the world famous Bhaktivedanta Manor, Hare Krishna Temple in Watford, as a brahmacari Brahmin monk for almost 10 years. The Manor has an international reputation of producing some of the finest priests throughout the whole of Europe. During his time in the temple, he travelled extensively throughout the UK, teaching the ancient philosophy of the Bhagavad Gita across many leading universities including: Cambridge University, Nottingham University and the London School of Economics to name a few.
Sundar regularly teaches hugely popular Bhagavad Gita courses which attract hundreds of people every year and has spent many years studying the Vedas from his travels to India.
He currently serves as the head of Hinduism at the Krishna Avanti Hindu School and is regarded as an authority on Hinduism for the Hindu community across the UK.
Sundar Maharaj is available to conduct the Vedic Hindu wedding ceremony across the UK and abroad. He comes from a glorious lineage of saints that directly descend from Lord Shri Krishna Himself!
Sundar Maharaj is an eloquent orator and has a natural ability to connect to people of all ages and cultures. His humour, stories, explanations and Sanskrit pronunciation will captivate audiences to make sure your wedding is an experience that no one will ever forget.
Being British, young and having almost 10 years of ashram training, he is at the forefront of ushering in a new generation of young, home grown British Indian priests to ensure the rich culture and heritage of Hinduism will grow and flourish in our society for many more years to come.
