Early days

During his early years within ISKCON, Sacinandana Swami performed the service of translating Prabhupada’s books from the English language into German. After some time he joined the main sankirtana (book distibution) party in Germany and was instrumental in developing the congregational preaching throughout Germany especially and also other countries within Northern Europe. The "Gauranga Bhajana" and "Nityananda Bhajana" groups both came together as a result. In later years, Sacinandana Swami helped start various farm communities and projects around Europe, including the "Goloka Dhama" project in Germany.
