I am happy to report that the GBC passed my proposal to make Srila Prabhupada's presence on the home page of all Iskcon temples and preaching centers an official guideline of the Society. Srila Prabhupada's picture is currently MIA (missing in action) on numerous temple websites around the world
ISKCON center officials shall be responsible to ensure that any and all web sites published by the center prominently feature a picture of Srila Prabhupada on the introductory page. This picture should be larger than any other individual‚Äôs photo (such as the GBC, center President, or guru). Srila Prabhupada should be addressed by his formal name and title: ‚ÄúHis Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, Founder-Acarya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness,‚ÄĚ or ‚ÄúISKCON Founder-Acarya His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada‚ÄĚ, or an equivalent translation.
