About 90 devotees, leaders from the European Yatras, are currently meeting in New Vraja Dhama, Hungary, for discussing plans about improving their Krishna conscious preaching missions in their respective countries.
Several subject matters are being discussed pertaining to preaching. The following are some of the highlights:
– ‘Bridge Preaching’ – What did Srila Prabhupada have to say about it? What positives does bridge preaching bring for ISKCON? Are there any negatives that bridge preaching might bring? What does the future hold for ISKCON with regards to bridge preaching?
– ‘ISKCON Membership’ – What shape should it take? What should the criteria be for membership? What obligations should there be for members? What obligations should ISKCON have toward its members?
– ‘2nd generation devotees initiating in the presence of their initiating spiritual master’- What is the current GBC position regarding 2nd generation gurus? What impact does the current position have with regards to ISKCON’s preaching and expansion? Why has that position changed? What does the future hold for ISKCON with regards to ‘2nd generation gurus’?
The meetings are conducted with the help of the ELM organization team (Citraraupini dd, Mahaprabhu das, Madayanti dasi and Praghosa das)
