Books are the Basis
With the corona virus pandemic currently affecting several aspects of our lives, it may be difficult to keep the mind engaged in Kṛṣṇa consciousness.
To guide us through these trying times, we rely on the infallible wisdom found in Śrīla Prabhupāda’s books. “Books are the basis” is an initiative introduced by the Ministry of education with a desired outcome of realizing Śrīla Prabhupāda’s wish to see his books placed at the center of ISKCON
devotees’ spiritual lives. To learn more about this project and ways to participate/support, please visit the “Basis” section of our website. https://iskconeducation.org/books-are-the-basis/
Request for Articles for Viplavaḥ
We would also like to inform you that we are anticipating the publication of our Quarterly Journal (Viplavaḥ) sometime
during the month of June. The theme of this Journal is “Raising Prahlāda-like children” and we are seeking written contributions from experienced devotees such as yourselves.
Should you want to submit an article, we humbly request that do so by May 15th. For information
regarding submissions as well as upcoming or previous Journal publications, please visit the “Inform” section of

Training the Teachers – Instituting Best Practices in Educational Programs seminar
During quarantine, we submit for your pleasure, Her Grace Ūrmilā Mātājī’s seminar on ISKCON educational institutions and the evolution they have experienced throughout
the years within our movement.
This presentation was given during our 2019 conference. In this video, Ūrmilā Mātājī shares best practices to institute in educational programs within ISKCON.
Drawing from her expansive knowledge of scriptures as well as her years of hands on experience, she presents scripturally-sound methods, aimed at improving the
ability and character of teachers. Mātājī also proceeds to showcase videos that are part of an instructional program she teaches in conjunction with the Ministry of
Education. Made available online, this program is designed to equip devotees with the skills and understanding needed to become more effective educators.
