Sri Sri Khoda-Nitai Mayapura-sasha
ISKCON Scotland is based in Karuna Bhavan, Lesmahagow, which is between and slightly south of Edinburgh and Glasgow. The devotees preach throughout Scotland and Northern England, distributing books and running Namma Hatta programs and occasional festivals.
The scottish devotees are famous for their ‘GOURANGA!’ campaign.
Gouranga (the Golden one) is a name of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, an incarnation of Sri Krishna who preached the glories of the holy name (Hare Krishna) throughout India 500 years ago. The sound of ‘Gouranga’ is extremely potent spiritually, just like the Hare Krishna mantra, and whoever hears or chants this name becomes liberated.
Apart from the books of Srila Prabhupada, ISKCON Scotland can also supply various ‘Gouranga!’ branded merchandise such as mugs, toys and CDs.
Note: ‘Gouranga’ is the Scottish spelling of ‘Gauranga’.
