The “Varnasrama Development in Malaysia” seminar was held on Sunday, August 23, 2009, at the Riverstone Eco Resort in Hulu Yam just outside of Kuala Lampur with His Holiness Bhakti Raghava Swami as the main speaker at the event. Some 30 ISKCON leaders from different parts of Malaysia assembled at the Riverstone Eco Resort for their ISKCON Malaysia National Council Meeting.

Part One of the Varnasrama Seminar included various Power Point presentations such as: (1) “ISKCON’s Four Movements” outlining Srila Prabhupada’s vision for spreading Lord Caitanya’s Movement on a wide scale,
(2) the Position Paper “Promoting Vrindaban Village Development in India” adopted by the ISKCON India leadership in year 2008 and (3) the document “Varnasrama-based Rural Development Ministry” discussed by the ISKCON India leadership in April, 2009. This was followed by a Video presentation entitled “Four Waves of ISKCON” echoing the four movements identified by Srila Prabhupada: (1) Sankirtan Movement, (2) Deity Worship Movement, (3) Spiritual Initiation Movement and (4) Varnasrama Movement.

Part Two of the seminar covered a video presentation entitled “Varnasrama College - 2009″ giving an overview of the Varnasrama College 3 month course given at Sahyadri Sri Krishna Balarama Ksetra near Udupi in South India from January 2009 to March 2009. Questions followed the various presentations.

As an immediate follow-up to the seminar, His Grace Radha Raman prabhu from Malaysia made his presentation to the delegates present inviting them to take action towards implementing a national ministry for varnasrama development. The leadership of ISKCON Malaysia have decided to establish a Varnasrama Dharma Committee composed of five members working under the National Council, ISKCON Malaysia. The general response of the leaders was thus quite positive and we look forward for more developments in the area of varnasrama in Malaysia.
