ISKCON UK

Sunday, November 24th, 2019

This year is a very special one, because it marks the 50th Anniversary of The International Society for Krishna Consciounsess (ISKCON) in the UK. In observance of this, there has already been a variety of special events.

Recently. devotees from across the England were eager to grab themselves a copy of Chasing Rhinos with the Swami volume 2, by Shyamasundar das. As one of the key pioneers for ISKCON in the UK, he was invited to Bhaktivedanta Manor, Glastonbury Town Hall, ISKCON Leicester, ISKCON Birmingham, East London, ISKCON-London and the Krishna Spectacular show in the Hammersmith Apollo to sign and distribute hundreds of copies for eager readers.

Chasing Rhinos with the Swami volume 2 recounts Shyamasunder’s memories of ISKCON’s initial impact and growth in India, supervised by Srila Prabhupada who was assisted by his early disciples from around the world. Volume 2 follows on from volume 1, which narrates Shyamasunder’s first encounter with Srila Prabhupada, the establishment of ISKCON in San Francisco, the very early days of ISKCON in London and his ongoing relationship George Harrison and John Lennon.
