H.H. Avadhūta Bhaktivedanta Yogacharya Śrī Ramakrishnananda Bābājī Mahārāja (David, Ben Yosef, Har-Zion), who writes under the pen name Prabhuji, is a writer, a painter, and an avadhūta mystic who has chosen to retire from society and lead a solitary life. Although he is considered and respected by many as an enlightened being, Prabhuji does not accept the role of a spiritual authority that others have tried to assign him for years. He does not preach or try to convince anyone of anything. Prabhuji does not accept new disciples, followers, devotees, or visitors. He has decided to spend his days completely secluded, praying, meditating, studying, writing, and painting in contemplation. Prabhuji doesn’t claim to be a guide, professor, instructor, educator, enlightener, pedagogue, evangelist, rabbi, posek halacha, healer, therapist, satsangist, leader, channeler (medium), savior, or guru.

Prabhuji does not offer interviews and expresses himself only through his bookspaintingspoemsmelodies, and online lectures. We kindly ask everyone to respect his privacy and not disturb him by any means asking for blessings and interviews or requesting to be accepted as a disciple, devotee, or follower.

This website is not administered by Prabhuji himself but by his disciples, who feel that their collective duty is to build and maintain this website in order to preserve and perpetuate the legacy of Prabhuji.
