GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY WEEK

CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF KRISHNA CONSCIOUSNESS IN THE UK AND THE INSTALLATION OF SRI SRI RADHA-LONDONISVARA
Slider

50 years ago, His Divine Grace A.C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada arrived in London with the promise to give everyone a chance to see God face-to-face. He fulfilled this promise by installing Their Most Beautiful Lordships Sri Sri Radha-Londonisvara in the heart of the most important city in the world.

Here we are, all these years later, growing the mission of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu from strength-to-strength. Our community is growing in numbers, diversity and quality. We are no longer just a monastic movement, we are now a community of many families, successful professionals, students, renunciants, as well as full-time temple residents.

Srila Prabhupada stated that festivals are "mothers of devotion" because they give rise to bhakti. We have planned an exciting week of celebrations to bring us all together in order to remember and appreciate our past, absorb ourselves in the rich spiritual association of the present, and to project our transcendental desires into the future, setting the pace for the next 50 years. All together as an international society, we have the power to make profound changes within our own hearts and in the world around us.

We warmly invite you to please join us for our Golden Anniversary celebrations and feel yourself enter the spiritual world and the family atmosphere that is ISKCON-London.

NINE-DAY FESTIVAL

Each day will have a specific theme, which will be reflected in that day’s activities. We warmly invite you to immerse yourself whole-heartedly in everything that will take place, using it as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn more about our history from those who were present at the time, gain greater appreciation for the gifts that Srila Prabhupada has given us, and deepen your spiritual practices in enlivening association.
