Introducing Krishna Consciousness to new people
Building and maintaining a strong urban Vaisnava community.
To take care of the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of different age groups
Congregational preaching means Krishna consciousness for the grihastha ashram. Because many people who are involved in family life cannot directly live in the temples, we need a program to offer Krishna consciousness to those people. Since householders are the majority of the population, congregational preaching is one of the first priorities of our movement. It develops different ways to engage people in chanting the holy name, in reading Srila Prabhupada's books and rendering service to the deities.
Congregation naturally indicates that people must come together in groups, that naturally they come together to chant the holy names and come together to the temples to serve the deities.
We, here at Iskcon Amritsar conduct several congregations at various places in Amritsar and nearby places for the benefit of masses. We have weekly programs in homes of devotees and guests. Senior devotees generally give the lectures. After arati we have a japa session, ecstatic kirtan and then sumptuous prasadam is distributed. We also distribute books during these programs. People in general are benefitted to hear the Sankirtan and the Glories of the Lord.
