ISKCON Leadership Sanga
Please accept our sincere obeisances to each of you.
All Glories to Srila Prabhupada!
We on the ILS steering committee, are excited to announce the return of the ISKCON Leadership Sanga (ILS) to be held in person in Sri Dhama Mayapur February 11-16th of 2023.
First established in 2012, ILS has become ISKCON’s premier gathering of present and future leaders from around the globe. We come together in the spirit of Srila Prabhupada’s instruction that the leaders of his society should gather once a year at our holy headquarters of Sri Dhama Mayapur and discuss unity in diversity.
Threats to global stability over the past 3 years have helped us all become acutely aware of the need for this kind of synergy and interdependence. Our individual strength lies ultimately in the quality of our sanga, and the quality of our collective sanga relies on each of us offering our individual strengths in a mood of service..
“If you relieve me of the burden of management, that will be a very great service to Krishna and the movement. See that everything is going on nicely. With great endeavor we have made the framework, now we have to see that things are going on nicely..”
Letter to Pusta Krishna Aug. 1976
“ Yes, this preaching work is our mission. It is Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s mission, my Guru Maharaja’s mission, and my mission. It is through the parampara. As I am trying to discharge my Guru Maharaja’s mission, you also try, and things will go on nicely.”
– Srila Prabhupada continued his letter from August 1976 to say
Let us work together to Lead ISKCON into the Future. And assist
Srila Prabhupada in his mission!
