“It is the duty of every living being to perform welfare activities for the benefit of others with his life, wealth, intelligence and words.” (Lord Caitanya in Caitanya-caritamrta, Adi-lila 9.42)
The ISKCON Congregational Development Ministry (CDM) is based on this principle of engaging in welfare activities for the benefit of the world. Our Founder-Acarya, Srila Prabhupada says in the purport to Bhagavad-gita 5.25, “The sufferings of humanity are due to forgetfulness of Kṛṣṇa as the supreme enjoyer, the supreme proprietor and the supreme friend. Therefore, to act to revive this consciousness within the entire human society is the highest welfare work.”
All Glories to the Inaugurator of the Global Market of the Holy Name (Nama-hatta)
The month of February starts off by celebrating Nityananda Trayodasi. We humbly invoke the blessings of Lord Nityananda as the foremost of preachers in the Sankirtana Movement of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and the actual founder of the congregational program of Nama-hatta.
Always Grateful to our Generous Donors
The CDM would like to express its sincere gratitude for your generous support, through which the various services that we conduct in the area of outreach, cultivation and careare sustained. We are consistently promoting the Gita For Everyone, Damodara Outreach Program, Vaisnava Life Counseling, Bhakti Marriage, online ISKCON Disciple Course, etc.
We regularly offer puja to Lord Nrsimhadeva here in Mayapur on behalf of our donors and their families as a humble gesture to reciprocate with the sincere support of our donors. All of this is to continue steadily with the congregational mission of engaging in the ‘highest welfare activity’ – sharing Krsna consciousness.
