#35 The Future of Street Harinam/Nagar Sankirtan – Where are We Going?
The presentation will include case studies of the results of successful programs. We will look at statistics on the current level of performance by ISKCON centers and trends from the past.
• Inspiration from our Founder-acarya, Srila Prabhupada
• Communities and individuals
• Vision for the Future
Innovation is crucial to the continuing success of any organization. We will explore the initiatives of World Holy Name Festival and Fortunate People, a new idea for spreading the chanting of Hare Krishna in every town and village.
A question and answer session with an interactive discussion will be a highlight.
