Vrindaban Gurukul

Vrindaban Gurukul has been established by world renowned flute maestro Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia. In the traditional Guru-shishya style it aims to revive the ancient lifestyle of researching and teaching Indian music and traditions with both the Guru (teacher) and shishya (student) living together. Vrindaban Gurukul is a living heritage of Indian art music and tradition. There are two such Gurukuls, one in Mumbai and the other in Bhubaneswar, Odisha.

In my past there is Krishna. In my dreams I dream of recreating a huge college of flutists, a veritable Vrindaban in which students will arrive to learn and study with satchels full of flutes, live in mud huts, eat at a common langar.  A modern Vrindaban from which a thousand flutes will ring out each day.  For what else is there?  When my breath is gone and I can not play anymore what do I leave behind?  Some dedicated students! When you leave nothing behind, you cry at the point of death, but I still dream, I dare to dream that through my students my flute will be left behind as the memory of Krishna.”
