    nama oṁ viṣṇu-pādāya kṛṣṇa-preṣṭhāya bhū-tale

    śrīmate bhaktivedānta-svāmin iti nāmine

    I offer my respectful obeisances unto His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda,  who is very dear to Lord Krishna,  having  taken  shelter  at  His lotus feet.

    namas te sārasvate deve gaura-vāṇī-pracāriṇe

    nirviśeṣa-śūnyavādi-pāścātya-deśa-tāriṇe

    Our respectful obeisances are unto  you, O spiritual  master, servant of  Sarasvatī  Gosvāmī. You arekindly preaching  the message of Lord Caitanyadeva   and delivering   the   Western  countries,  which  arefilled  with  impersonalism  and voidism.

    “As  Founder-Ācārya   Śrīla  Prabhupāda    holds   a   unique position  in   ISKCON. We   need   to   understand   it   deeply.   As ācārya,  his  exemplary  personal  behavior  is  themodel  and  norm  for  all  ISKCON  devotees.   As founder,   his  personal   standards  andprinciples   of action,   his particular   spirit or  “mood,”  take  on  a  societal  shape   and  form  in  the   organization   he  created.  Each  individual   member  internalizes   thatspirit, incorporating   it   into  the  core  of  his  or  her  own  identity.  His  spirit  pervades  the  institution as  the  essence  of  its  own  culture,   and  the  members become its visibleembodiment in the world”  (Srila Prabhupada, The Founder Acarya of ISKCON – Ravindra Svarupa Dasa)

    Our 2015 Campaign will end on December 31, 2015, but that does not mean that our programs and/our enthusiasm will stop. This year taught us a lot and we are ever eager to continue our service to Srila Prabhupada and Their Lordships.

    Another milestone will take place in 2016, the 50th Anniversary of the incorporation of ISKCON, The INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR KRISHNA CONSCIOUSNESS.  Stay tuned for more information.

    To all of you who made our programs a success, who came together in the spirit of cooperation, who were driven by the love for Guru, Gauranga and of course, SriSri Radha-Madhavahari, THANK YOU VERY, VERY MUCH.

    ISKCON PHOENIX

    As special offering to our Founder Acarya, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada on the 50th Anniversary of his arrival, we wanted to bring back the value of cooperation and we hope more and more devotees, aspiring devotees, congregation members, and newcomers will participate.
