Bhaktivedanta Manor Update

Dear Devotees,

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

We at Bhaktivedanta Manor are under lockdown and, under the guidance of the ISKCON Deity ministry and the GBC, we have simplified our Deity worship so that resident devotees can conduct the worship in a manageable and sustainable way. From the recent photographs of our beautiful Deities, one can see that They continue to be cared for with great attention and devotion. The cows are also being looked after and are producing abundant milk.

We are taking all the recommended precautions to prevent infection among our resident devotees, and any resident devotee who shows symptoms of COVID 19 is immediately isolated and in regular consultation with a doctor.

Although the UK Government is aiming to conduct 25000 a day, this target is not currently being reached. Consequently, not everyone in the UK with symptoms is being tested. The UK GBC has asked Temple Presidents to highlight confirmed cases of COVID19 to him so that help can be offered to the most vulnerable and those in need. There is some speculation around numbers of devotees with COVID19, however the majority remain unconfirmed. 

On the bright side, we’re happy to report that hundreds of devotees throughout the UK are participating in online sangas to chant japa together, have kirtan, and read and discuss Srila Prabhupada’s books. May we all continue to spiritualize the airwaves in this way!

Please take advantage of the following facilities to maintain your spiritual inspiration in these testing times:

– Online Morning Programme & Aratis – www.manor.media

– Special Facebook Live Discussions – www.facebook.com/SoBhakti/

– Books available for reading & inspiration – www.vedabase.io

Bhaktivedanta Manor is also reaching out to provide practical and spiritual assistance. Please contact our “Krishna’s Helpers” service and we’ll endeavour to mobilise our volunteers to help in whatever way we can. Pass on the message to those in need.
