Hundreds of Scouts visit ISKCON Leicester for Interfaith Trail

4,202 views Hundreds of Scouts visit ISKCON Leicester for Interfaith Trail thumbnail

Leicester Cathedral, a Mosque, a Gurudwara, a Jain Centre, and ISKCON Leicester were selected places of worship for the City’s annual Interfaith Trail.

Over 600 scouts, led by parents and Scout leaders visited the ISKCON Centre on Saturday 15th November. The aim of the trail was for the Scouts to learn about different faiths and practices.

Various interactive presentations were made by the devotees, offering an experience of a Krishna Conscious lifestyle – Lord Krishna, Srila Prabhupada, Bhagavad-gita, mantra meditation, making and offering sweets, gopi dots, dress-up, and meet the monks!

The visitors were able to immerse themselves in the culture of ISKCON life, and ask all the questions they wanted to. They made sweets, bought Srila Prabhupada’s books, beat the mridanga drums, tried on saris, and wore tilaks. Many of the guests commented how the Centre was the highlight of the Interfaith Trail.

The Deputy County Commissioner for Scouting in Leicestershire & Rutland was accompanied by his mother. She said of her visit:

“Of the five places of worship I visited, I wanted to particularly send my thanks to you all at ISKCON. You arranged the day so well with youth in mind. It was the most interactive, informative and happy place to be. Staffed beautifully with interested and interesting calm, happy, smiling people. Thanks again for your obvious hard work and planning that went into today. My favourite, most thought provoking visit of the day.”

Many of the parents who visited commented on how the children enjoyed the ISKCON experience, as it was ‘lots to do, and lots of fun.’

ISKCON Leicester has become a prominent part of the City’s fabric, due to its City centre location, and Heritage building. At present, the Centre is only open for weekly functions, courses, and festivals. For more information, please visit:
