KI’s educational offerings evoke the mood of Srila Prabhupada’s Seven Purposes of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (please review these purposes at the end of the article) when he incorporated ISKCON fifty years ago. ISKCON temples that have imbibed Prabhupada’s mood of education and training, such as ISKCON of Chowpatty and ISKCON of Pune, have become vibrant success stories, with many full-time devotees and enthusiastic congregations to inspire Vaishnavas for generations to come. With this vision the GBC asked the KI team to start the Krishna Institute.
