By Bhakta dasa

The horrific massacre that unfolded in Christchurch New Zealand on Friday 15th March, in which to date 50 human beings have lost their lives, is truly a very dark moment in history, not only for Muslims but for all who treasure the gift of life. On behalf of the Australian and New Zealand Hare Krishna Movement, I wish to convey that ISKCON members all over the world offer their sincere prayers to all who are suffering due to this insane act of evil madness. Our deepest sympathy goes to those who lost family members, friends and fellow members of the Christchurch Muslim community, as w...

Today we express our heartfelt sorrow to the senseless and horrific atrocities that took place in New Zealand. Defenceless, peaceful people praying in a sacred place taken away in a cowardly act of terrorism. We stand united with the Muslim community against such evil terror.

Hare KrishnaBy Praghosa Das

“It has been a most momentous 50 years. From the devotees first arriving on UK soil to where we are today and everything in between has been some journey of hard work, good fortune, unexpected twists and turns, great struggle and even a sprinkling of miracles! We look forward to the next 50 years and all it has to bring!”

Hare KrishnaBy Pancharatna das

When we began this project one of our primary goals was to provide a way for devotees, especially book distributors, to connect people they meet with a follow-up system. One of our main considerations was to have online courseware to provide people that are interested. Now we have it and we invite you to use it. I'm especially hoping that this facility could be taken up by book distributors during the upcoming marathon.

Hare KrishnaBy Praghosa Das

I was saddened to hear about the fire at the Manor's Goshala but incredibly grateful to Krishna that nobody was hurt and that the cows are safe. I was also very happy to learn that Jagaddhatri, Devaki and Sanjay are all fine after being treated in hospital for smoke inhalation. The quick actions and tireless work of both our devotees and emergency services helped to contain the fire, and avoid what could have been an unimaginable disaster. It is testimony to the devotee...

Hare KrishnaBy The Tributes Team

Srila Prabhupada values his disciples and granddisciples enormously and would inquire where someone was when he visited a temple and did not see them present. Once he even sent a entire temple in Switzerland to visit a godsister who was in hospital. Srila Prabhupada’s ability to be concerned about everyone but himself is one example of his greatness. The celebration of Vyasa-puja, is an impetus for us to come together and think of each other’s wellbeing througho...

Hare KrishnaBy Madhusevita das

For more than ten years I have been printing large format books such as Darsana, Krishna Art, and the latest 16 Kg Bhagavad Gita. My cherished dream has always been to produce Srila Prabhupada’s Bhagavad Gita in a size that would make it the largest printed sacred text in the world, and then, after displaying it in different parts of the world, place it either at Kuruksetra where Krishna had spoken to Arjuna on the battlefield, or in Mayapur Dhama where the Temple ...

“It’s an opportunity to bring positive attention to the topic of child protection,” Lilasuka Dasi said. “As they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. And research shows that one adult who is trained in child protection can protect an average of ten children from sexual abuse.” To this end, the North American Child Protection Office is conducting more trainings in the US and Canada this year than ever before. So far Lilasuka has already visi...

Hare KrishnaBy the Secretary of Sannyasa Ministry

Although in Kali-yuga the injunction is that no one should accept sannyasa. Of course, those who actually follow the rules and regulations must take sannyasa. Generally, however, people are unable to accept sannyasa life, and therefore Caitanya Mahaprabhu stressed, kalau nasty eva nasty eva na-sty eva gatir anyatha. In this age there is no other alternative, no other alternative, no other alternative than to chant the holy name of the Lord: Hare Krs...

The GBC Body hereby encourages ISKCON managers to monitor the levels of the sound systems in use at their centers. The sound system should be adjusted so that it sounds clear, sweet and attractive as opposed to overly loud, distorted or painful. Whenever possible, the sound pressure levels should regularly be measured using sound pressure level meters to make sure that dangerous sound pressure levels are prevented. Such meters are available on mobile devices.
