HERE'S A Krsna conscious project you might like to support or get involved in.
Gunagrahi Dasa Goswami, Mahatma Dasa
To help young people in America appreciate Krsna consciousness.
To keep in touch with people new to Krsna consciousness and guide them in their progressive surrender to Krsna.
To encourage people to study Srila Prabhupada's books and assist them in their study.
Since its inception six years ago, Krishnafest has focused mainly on bringing Krsna consciousness to young people in America. The twelve-devotee Krishnafest team has four traveling parties, which hold programs in homes, colleges, and high schools, and with Indian youth. Krishnafest runs a school in Dallas to train new devotees, and keeps an office in Dallas to stay in touch with people the Krishnafest devotees have met.
Seven months a year Krishnafest holds a festival on the national mall in Washington, D.C. The festival has inspired thousands of young people to chant Hare Krsna, dance, and buy Krsna conscious books.
Older students from ISKCON schools sometimes travel with Krishnafest, which also works with the Hare Krsna straightedge bands Shelter and 108.
Krishnafest also publishes a bi-monthly newsletter for young people, called Introspection, and introductory booklets and pamphlets.
The Krishnafest devotees plan to visit many people they've met to teach them more about Krsna consciousness. The devotees will also print more books and pamphlets that show young people how Krsna consciousness has relevance for them.
Krishnafest plans to produce audio and video tapes and to work with ISKCON Foundation to develop a program to encourage members of ISKCON's congregation to study Srila Prabhupada's books.
The project lacks the money and manpower it needs to keep in touch with all the people who have become interested in Krsna consciousness through its efforts.
