Another small step for ISKCON UK, another big step in following Srila Prabhupada’s Instructions

Saci Premamayi Devi Dasi: On Tuesday the 13th of August 2013 another rather unspectacular but noteworthy event took place at Bhaktivedanta Manor, London. The signing of an affiliation and Licence agreement between the original ISKCON charity of 1969 and the new ISKCON Bhaktivedanta Manor charity.

This brings us one step closer, after many years of painstaking preparation, for ISKCON Bhaktivedanta Manor to become an independent separate charity. The reason this is significant is that Srila Prabhupada instructed that all legal entities outside of India should be registered separately wherever possible.

There were different reasons for this, one reason being that local devotees would become familiar and competent in all the necessary requirements of running an incorporated charity. Another reason was to not have all our centres legally connected in case one of them ran into difficulty and other centres might then be negatively effected. For one reason or another and without going into the details as it is all now on the historical record, the UK yatra did not fulfill this instruction of Srila Prabhupada, hence all UK centres were part of the one legal entity.

Some years ago the UK yatra decided to rectify this and again without going into the details it proved to be quite a long and involved journey. However last Tuesday the second of our UK centres, ISKCON Bhaktivedanta Manor, (ISKCON London, Soho was the first) took one of the final steps to becoming a separate charity. In due course of time all the other 10 or so current ISKCON UK centres will do the same.
