Maha-Mantra Week!

11:53:00 AM By RG

** PLEASE SEE UPDATE ON DOUBLE DECKER BUS BELOW! **
On September 18, 1965, His Divine Grace A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada stepped off the ship Jaladutta onto American soil in Boston. The rest is history!

After Srila Prabhupada came to the US, within 12 years he was able to establish over a hundred temples and inspire thousands of followers and share with them the strength of the Hare Krishna Maha-Mantra. Today, ISKCON has grown to a world wide confederation of over 400 centres around the world!

Starting Sep 17th, ISKCON centres all over the world will celebrate the arrival of Srila Prabhupada in the West 45 years ago, the day that changed the life trajectory of millions all over the globe. The celebrations this year in ISKCON Toronto will be marked by 10 days of non-stop activity. We encourage you to make the most of this occasion, participate in the numerous activities, help organize them and most importantly - spread the word around!
