ISKCON Youth Forum (IYF) envisions a society of dynamic young men and women, ready to live a life of values, culture and devotion to God. Our mission is to empower everyone with knowledge of the Bhagavad Gita that helps to differentiate between truth and illusion; revive faith that is based on scientific principles, logic and self-realization.
Spiritual life is often misunderstood as dry, rigid, blind submission, devoid of rational thought, denying enjoyment and a paper-theory that never works in practice. We offer a pleasant surprise to the skeptics and suspicious; new light and direction to the confused and frustrated; a meaningful lifestyle to the hip and cool; a genuine experience for the curious and contemporary spiritual seekers. The ever-fresh world of Krishna consciousness challenges one to draw the best of one’s creativity and talent as an offering to Sri Krishna.
We organize and train in:
- Workshops, Seminars and Presentations on philosophy, art, culture
- Yoga Retreats for a getaway towards the inner self
- Picnics to charming places seemingly lost
- Mantra Meditation tips and techniques to keep the spirit active
- Music, Dance and Drama for those unforgettable moments
- Lifestyle Counseling to balance pressures from all corners
- Culture and Etiquette to do the right thing at the right time in the right place
- Leadership and Management Skills to confidently and smartly go ahead
- Public Speaking, Debates and Quizzes for words to make impact
- Personality and Character Development to stand out of the crowd
Now Is The Time
The first aphorism of the Vedanta Sutra issues a clarion call: athato brahma-jignyasa. “Therefore, now that you have got the human form of life, inquire into the Absolute Truth.” To embark on this spiritual journey in the quest of undying happiness – what better time can there be other than youth, when we are full with energy, enthusiasm and determination ? Now is the time to begin this internal revolution of uplifting our consciousness.
Our members come from a wide spectrum of society – software engineers, doctors, project managers, scientists, academicians, collegians, businessmen etc. We welcome all genuine seekers of Truth irrespective of the background.
