Education = Congregational Empowerment




“Leaders and managers must understand how to help develop, nurture and empower our congregation members. More and more of ISKCON?s members are congregational members. Everywhere in the world our congregation and the potential for increasing our congregation is very great. In order to maximize the opportunities to understand Lord Nityananda?s and Prabhupada?s vision of spreading Krishna consciousness in every corner of the world, we must engage many more people to make progress in their own spiritual life. The type of work that is being done to nurture youth, the grihastha ashram, the congregational preaching in the communities that surround our temples, and the work we do in various educational programs are keys to the future success of our movement. Without making congregational development a top priority, we will not be able to take full advantage of the mercy that Lord Caitanya is giving us. The most important service is to preach to the devotees and help cultivate Krishna consciousness in the hearts of all the living beings who approach Srila Prabhupada and Lord Caitanya?s movement.”
