The Ministry of Educational Development is currently undergoing a vital reorganization. We see setting up a web site as a priority for achieving the goals of providing resources and facilitating communication between ISKCON’s various educational projects.

Our Ministry would like to make access to relevant resources easily available by listing and linking educational institutions, educators and the devotees within Srila Prabhupada’s society.

At the moment we are compiling a data base of educators. Therefore we are requesting anyone who has professional experience and/or certification in areas pertinent to education, to send their contact information and a one or two line description of what they can offer ISKCON educators.

Your listing can be send to Anupama devi dasi at Thank you!

    Hare Krishna,

    I was not only a professional driving instructor in Maryland but a driver’s license examiner as well. Now I am retired and living in Alachua, Florida.

    I have seen where devotees have died due to negligent driving and have volunteered to give instruction to devotees free of charge but all devotees ever seem to want is free use of my car in order to get their licenses and nothing more.

    Having personally seen devotees who need instruction; foreigners, new drivers and even some who have been driving for a while, I would like to help any devotee who wants help learning how to drive in whatever way I can, providing they use their own or someone else’s car, and if they are under 18 someone else must accompany them throughout the lessons. But as soon as I mention these restrictions I usually get a dirty look and that’s all.
    Or I might get a comment such as, “Anyone can teach me how drive.”.

    I knew one driver’s ed teacher who taught for 20 years, and was driving for sixty, and had never gotten into one accident either by herself or with her students. I also had a student who’s father told him that he is going to crash his first vehicle, because that is what happens in his family when you learn how to drive. Anyone can teach you how to step on the brake and put the car in gear, but there is a difference between the teacher who hasn’t had a crash in sixty years and the parent who buys his son an old pickup truck to start with because he knows the way he teaches his son how to drive is inevitably going to end up in an accident.

    So I volunteer my services not out of false ego but sincerely to help the devotees. But maybe ISKCON hasn’t evolved to the point where the need for driver education is seen to be there yet.
