On the morning of 9th April, Buckingham Palace in London announced that Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth II's husband, has died aged 99. The community of ISKCON in the UK and around the world are saddened by the loss, and deeply admired his remarkable life of dedicated service.
Standing on street corners, speaking to random people, and showing them spiritual books, amongst whatever else I do in life, this simple and sublime activity is what I relish most.
ISKCON's flagship project the Temple of the Vedic Planetarium's International team will be touring the UK from the 18th to the 30th of November 2015. Jananivasa Das, Ambarisa Das and other senior devotees are touring the world sharing the opportunity to support this signature building of ISKCON.
This month is the month we went to war – 70 years ago. In early September 1939 Britain responded to Nazi Germany’s invasion of Poland by declaring that war now existed between us. Rationing of food, defeat in France, the nightly ‘blackouts’ and enemy bombing raids, the Battle of Britain, the Blitz – all were shortly to come. Britain would not be the same for many years.
