The 50th

2015 and 1016 mark the 50th anniversaries of Srila Prabhupada's arrival in America and the formation of ISKCON respectively. These dates are practically around the corner. These 50th anniversaries are ideal opportunities for introducing ourselves afresh to the public and educating folks on Srila Prabhupada and Krishna Consciousness. Devotees might offer programs in colleges, churches, senior groups, and special interest groups, etc. One thing that would be useful in this regard is to develop power point presentations on the history of the Movement - the advent of Sri Chaitanya, how Prabhupada brought the teachings to the West, and the growth of KC. Another thought is to have a site where devotees can communicate about The 50th - share ideas, promote events, offer assistance or suggestions. This year is not too soon to start if devotees want to have projects and events up and running as an offering to Srila Prabhupada for this momentous occasion. More Later.
