13th July 1966 is one of the most significant and milestone dates in the history of the world, as this is when Shrila Prabhupada established the International Society for Krishna Consciousness in New York, USA. 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of this auspicious inauguration of ISKCON and we want to make this a memorable celebration all year long!

Shrila Prabhupada was our forever well-wisher, our eternal father, our eternal saviour and we are forever indebted to him for all the hardships he went through just so that we could be freed from the clutches of maya; what he has given us is priceless, immeasurable, and the most valuable.

He dedicated his life to giving us the golden message of Krsna Consciousness, so that we could all be showered with this gold dust to make our lives as pure as gold and on this golden anniversary, of this historic event, we are encouraging all of you to take part and show your appreciation… In honour of Shrila Prabhupada’s life dedication we are not asking for you to dedicate 50 years, 50 months, 50 weeks, 50 days but just 50 hours of service as an offering to Shrila Prabhupada in this year.

We will set up various services for you to be able to get involved in at the temple from helping in the farm, gardening, goshalla, maintenance and so many more. You can come in groups with friends and family or individually and really enjoy yourself!

50 hours equals 50 steps closer to Krsna – every time you take one step forward to Krsna, Krsna takes 10 steps closer to you, so with 50 steps the Lord is coming 500 times closer… Take advantage and get involved. For more details please email us on volunteer@krishnatemple.com and contact Krsna Purna Mathaji on 07946 410890.

We look forward to serving with you!
