The pending sale of ISKCON’s Radha Govinda Mandir (“Bharati Center”) has been a matter of interest, concern and even controversy among temple board members, congregational members, devotees and interested persons in the New York metropolitan area and elsewhere, especially in light of the GBC Body’s stated opposition to this sale transaction.
In order to foster openness, inclusivity and greater awareness of the current state of affairs as well as to dispel confusion and misconceptions, last year’s GBC Executive Committee (now called the “GBC Brooklyn Temple Sale Committee”) will host an ISKCON Informational Town Hall Meeting on Mon., May 15,2017 at 7:00 PM sharp. The evening’s panel will consist of the following GBC members, assisted by legal counsel:
• Bhakti Caru Swami (2017 GBC Chairman / GBC Brooklyn Temple Sale Committee, Member)
• Sesa Das (GBC Brooklyn Temple Sale Committee, Chairman / 2016 GBC Chairman)
• Praghosa Das (GBC Brooklyn Temple Sale Committee, Member / 2015 GBC Chairman)
Interested persons in the New York metropolitan area are cordially invited to attend. Interested persons from outside the New York metropolitan area may be seated as space permits.

JUST SOME QUESTIONS THAT WE’LL ADDRESS:
• Why is the ISKCON Informational Town Hall Meeting not being held at the Radha Govinda Mandir?
• Why did the GBC Executive Committee formally notify the NYS Attorney General of its opposition to the sale of the temple?
• Is there any NYS case law precedent regarding a seller of religious real property “changing its mind” after a sales contract has been signed?
• What is the goal of the GBC Brooklyn Temple Sale Committee, and what is the scope of its authority?
WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
