OMBUDS Programme

Sunday, September 9th, 2018

ISKCON UK has established an Ombuds program so devotees can raise concerns, dealing with interpersonal conflicts and find clarity on ISKCON policies and practices. The team are from different parts of the UK and are a diverse group of devotees. They have been trained by Vraja Vihari prabhu from ISKCON Resolve. The idea is to work towards “zero barriers”- so that members of ISKCON should be able to raise, in good faith, concerns they have, and discuss how they can be addressed.

An ISKCON UK Ombuds will listen to you and help you consider the various options you have in dealing with a matter or issue, big or small. ISKCON UK Ombuds are totally confidential (except imminent risk), independent of Management in their capacity of Ombuds, neutral, and informal (conversations are off the record).

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION OR CONTACT DETAILS PLEASE WRITE  TO:  ISKCONOMBUDSUK@GMAIL.COM

Sanctuary for the Soul

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015

In the Hertfordshire countryside just north of London, Bhaktivedanta Manor, complete with its farmlands, beautiful gardens and temple is a real sanctuary for the soul. Open all year round to visitors and students of ancient wisdom, the temple offers a great experience with tours of the shrine, gardens and compassionate farm. See the rooms of the famous Hare Krishna guru Srila Prabhupada, to whom George Harrison gifted this iconic mock Tudor mansion. Visitors may participate in inspirational talks, yoga classes, mantra meditation, vegetarian cooking classes and various retreats.

Come and feel the peace, you certainly deserve it.
