Pacific Dharma is non profit 5013c religious organization formed in Hawaii in 1998 by Nrhari das (Jorge Nijensohn) and Bhavatarini dasi (Barbara Nijensohn) a married couple who are both disciples (for over 50 years) of A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, who brought the Hare Krishna mantra and the process of attaining pure love of God from India to the West in 1965.
In Sanskrit , Dharma is translated as religion or path. The true path is that of the soul not the temporary body and mind. So in this Dharma refers to the eternal path of the soul to serve and love God. So we are here to help others follow the path. Nrhari das and Bhavatarini dasi lived in Hawaii on Islands surrounded by the Pacific ocean when Pacific Dharma was founded so Pacific has a double meaning, the path while living by the Pacific ocean and the peaceful path. Pacific dharma has expanded to all over the world.
As Gaudiya vaisnavas we support and promote all bonafide teachers and devotees on this path. The goal of Bhakti Yoga is to attain the service in pure transcendental love to all devotees, gurus, Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu and Radha Krishna Yugal.
Pacific Dharma has an apartment with an altar, Tulasi plants and books, CDs and other items for Bhakti in Honolulu. There is a small temple named New Gaddadhara Bhavan, goshala,Tulasi plants books etc, at Nrhari dasi and Bhavatarini dasi's home on the Big Island of Hawaii. There are 3 apartments in Gopinatha Bhavan in Vrndavana India.
There have been several other preaching centers over the years.

As stated by Srila Prabhupada:
"This chanting of Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare is directly enacted from the spiritual platform, surpassing all lower states of consciousness—namely sensual, mental and intellectual. There is no need of understanding the language of the mantra, nor is there any need of mental speculation nor any intellectual adjustment for chanting this maha-mantra. It springs automatically from the spiritual platform, and as such, anyone can take part in this transcendental sound vibration, without any previous qualification, and dance in ecstasy."
In this age the process to attain perfection/love of God is to Chant the Names of God
The process of Bhakti yoga commonly known as the Hare Krishna movement, encompasses all aspects of life and can solve all problems such as birth, death, old age, and disease. We are all sons and daughter of the Supreme Lord who is calling us home to the plane of eternal love and truth. So Pacific Dharma was formed to facilitate all seekers of the truth in their eternal Dharma.
The process begins with relationship
who am I - pure spirit soul part and parcel of God
who Is God- Krishna
next is the process
chanting Hare Krishna, hearing about God and his devotees
end what is the goal
pure love of God -Krishna Prema
