Building a Diverse & Unified Community
Many of our centers around the world are located either near or in metropolitan cities, which means that the people we attract will likely be from cosmopolitan backgrounds. Although this is wanted, this presents its own set of challenges, from attracting them, to cultivating them and ultimately uniting them under the ISKCON – International Society banner as one community.
