On May 31st, ISKCON devotees in Jos, Nigeria, spoke to over 100 university students in the Department of Religious Studies at the University of Jos. The 2.5-hour presentation, “Krishna Consciousness: An Aspect of Hinduism,” offered by Salika Das, was interactive, intense, and educational.

Jos is a city located in the central part of Nigeria with nearly a million inhabitants. It is known for its pleasant climate, often referred to as the “Jewel of the Savanna.” Jos is culturally diverse, with a mix of different ethnic groups and a rich history and heritage.
