    The ISKCON Apple. Its ‘Apple’ all the way through, but there’s a ‘core’ and a ‘skin’ and we need to know the difference. I would like to share this picture of the ISKCON organization. Not everyone will agree with me, I know, but I think it adequately depicts progressive involvement in our movement – or any movement, for that matter – and might help to define layers of membership. Yesterday I wrote a post about six ‘types’ of...

    A confusing sign on a door in India. And if everyone is included, what does ‘membership’ mean? Questions people ask me: Can I become a member of ISKCON? How do I join? What will I have to do?

    Here’s six magazines that I read. I may have highlighted them before, but they are worthy of repetition. (1) First up is the Back to Godhead magazine, ISKCON’s flagship, started by Srila Prabhupada in 1944 and still a rewarding read. Delivered to your door through subscription at your local Krishna centre or from krishna.com. I particularly like the July edition because it has our dear Queen Elizabeth visiting the new Krishna school in London. (2) Second is the street newspaper and...
