A New Year Message from the ISKCON Governing Body Commission

Dear ISKCON Members and Friends,

Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

Looking back on 2022, we want to thank you for your many continued services to Srila Prabhupada, and to Lord Caitanya’s mission of spreading Krishna consciousness to every town and village in the world.

After several years of differing degrees of being isolated from one another and from our communities due to the pandemic, we look forward to more opportunities in 2023 to attend temple programs and festivals together, and to hear and chant openly in each other’s association.

While the material world is always a troubling place, as this new year begins we find shelter in Lord Krishna’s promise in the Gita that “to those who are constantly devoted and worship Me with love, I give them the understanding by which they can come to Me.”

We pray that 2023 will be a year of continued progress in your spiritual endeavors, and that the Lord will bless you, and your families and friends, with health, happiness, and continued advancement in the awakening of your eternal relationship with Lord Krishna.

Your servants,
GBC Executive Committee
