Śrīla Prabhupāda is the founder and greatest spiritual master of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON). The saint left for America at the age of '69 to fulfill the instruction of his spiritual master and spread the timeless wisdom of India overseas, among Western people. A mere one year after arriving in the USA, promptly 50 years ago, he registered the Society, so that India’s ancient religion became officially acknowledged in the West. Maintaining dialogues with famous scholars, religious leaders, he also gave televised interviews, organized programs attracting full house, then established temples, schools, vegetarian restaurants and self-sustaining farming communities. Clearly, he was filling a yawning spiritual gap, much needed in the countries chasing economic growth at a breakneck pace.

Although the world tends to know Krishna Consciousness as a religion, the bhakti yoga propounded by Prabhupāda represents a complete philosophy and way of life, which can lead to a healthy, happy and simple life. This recipe is being spread by the devotees of Krishnas in the whole world ever since.

The 50th anniversary of the registration of ISKCON is commemorated throughout the world including Hungary with festivals and celebrations. At the site of our dinner function, you can view our exhibition titled "Prabhupāda, the Emissary of Spiritual Science". Step by step, the exhibition describes the history of the unfolding of this movement, as well as the beneficial effects on society of Prabhupāda, which made him the emissary of peace.

At the dinner function you can personally meet with Sivarama Swami, who is the spiritual leader of ISKCON Hungary and who is a personal disciple of Śrīla Prabhupāda and a heir to his vision and spiritual heritage. He will not only speak of Prabhupāda's work but also about his personal reminiscences about his spiritual master.


Keynote subject

At the same time with the registration of the Hungarian Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON Hungary), the humanitarian programme of food distribution and mental care programme of Food for Life (FFL) was started. Starting from scratch, the by now well known charity programme is distributing half a million meals a year for thousands of our compatriots in need, helping them when they need it, providing secure and stable nourishment for them.

Although the press and the social media frequently reports about major events organised by Food for Life, the ideological and spiritual foundations of the food distribution by Hare Krishna devotees are lesser known. The milestones of those 30 years’ development are not much known, either. Sivarama Swami, spiritual leader of ISKCON Hungary is joined by Mrs. Szilaj Péterné (Gandharvika Prema Devi Dasi) in giving insights into the most important events during these 30 years.
