=========================================

Spiritual success of a Krsna conscious society is founded on how strongly
the principles of brahmacarya asrama are taught, maintained and supported.
The brahmacarya asrama is the training ground for gaining progressive
knowledge and detachment. Srila Prabhupada greatly emphasized training in
the brahmacarya asrama as the following quote shows:

“In the system of varnasrama-dharma, which is the beginning of actual human
life, small boys after five years of age are sent to become brahmacari at
the guru’s asrama, where these things are systematically taught to boys, be
they king’s sons or sons of ordinary citizens. The training was compulsory
not only to create good citizens of the state, but also to prepare the boy’s
future life for spiritual realization. The irresponsible life of sense
enjoyment was unknown to the children of the followers of the varnasrama
system. The boy was even injected with spiritual acumen before being placed
by the father in the womb of the mother. Both the father and the mother were
responsible for the boy’s success in being liberated from the material
bondage. That is the process of successful family planning. It is to beget
children for complete perfection. Without being self-controlled, without
being disciplined and without being fully obedient, no one can become
successful in following the instructions of the spiritual master, and
without doing so, no one is able to go back to Godhead. (SB 1.5.24).”

In the beginning of our movement, many bright-faced followers of Srila
Prabhupada were able to accept and follow the principles of brahmacarya
under his empowered and inspired guidance. Srila Prabhupada was able to
achieve this in a period of rampant degradation of human behavior by his
awesome love and purity. Overtime, as our movement has expanded, a need is
felt to strengthen our understanding and training in the brahmacari asrama.
Celibacy is a crucial principle of brahmacari life. However, dry efforts to
practice celibacy are usually insufficient; a wholesome lifestyle- training
involving cultivation of knowledge and detachment is necessary.

ISKCON Sannyasa Ministry and many senior leaders have felt an increasing
need for forums in which this training is systematically imparted,
especially in North America.

In response to this need a 3-day conference at ISKCON San Diego is planned
by H.H. Candramauli Swami in a cooperative endeavor with H.H. Prahladananda
Swami, H.H. Bhakti Vikasa Swami and H.G. Maha Tattva Prabhu T.P. ISKCON San
Diego.

This seminar is also intended for men who are serving in the capacity of
gurukula teachers, temple presidents, grhasthas (in training their children
and/or preparing themselves for retired life), temple leaders and senior
devotees who would surely like to work with a team of enthusiastic
trained-up brahmacaris.
