This year ISKCON is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Every festival we will try to remind you, and ourselves, that ISKCON was inaugurated 50 years ago, by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.
50 years ago His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada started ISKCON, the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, in New York (1966).
So this year we want to commemorate that fact during our different festivals and functions. By drawing attention to ISKCON’s 50th Anniversary we want to share the love and knowledge that Prabhupada shared 50 years ago and continues to share through his books and followers.
The first opportunity we have was the Radhadesh Members Day, on Saturday May 28th.
We will continue to draw attention to this commemorative fact throughout the year, specifically during the Radhadesh Summer Holi Festival, and the upcoming Sri Krishna Janmastami celebrations.
