 Karuna Bhavan – International Society Of Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON)

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. Karuna Bhavan or ‘Sanctuary of Peace’, is a space for people from all walks of life to practice a more loving and compassionate way of living. Run by the Hare Krishna community in Scotland since 1987,it is being developed as a holistic spiritual centre, to help re-establish the sacredness of life. This is done principally by following a lifestyle based on the motto of ‘simple living, high thinking‘.

In 1965, His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami, known to his followers as Srila Prabhupada, brought Krsna conciousness to America. On the day he landed in Boston, on his way to New York City, he penned these words in his diary: “My dear Lord Krsna, I am sure that when this transcendental message penetrates [the hearts of the westerners], they will certainly feel gladdened and thus become liberated from all unhappy conditions of life.” He was sixty-nine years old, alone and with few resources, but the wealth of spiritual knowledge and devotion he possessed was an unwavering source of strength and inspiration.
