IKCM Service to the Public
The devotees of IKCM spend a considerable amount of time in spiritual welfare activities. Actually, it can be said that the institution exists for this purpose alone. Below are a few of the contributions IKCM makes to the welfare of human society.
"It is the duty of every living being to perform welfare activities for the benefit of others with his life, wealth, intelligence and words."
Srimad Bhagavatam 10.22.35
IKCM devotees, following the footsteps of our Acharyas, travel and teach Vedic wisdom all over the world for the benefit of humanity.
The free distribution of sanctified food, prasadam, is one of the foundations of Lord Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu's sankirtan movement. IKCM devotees distribute hundreds of thousands of free meals every year.
Sacred spaces, Temples, where the public can gather to pray, worship, and learn, are essential for the well-being of society. IKCM, in cooperation with pious, fortunate souls, invests considerable time and energy in constructing such builings, most recently in Berhampore, India, (pictured).
Our previous Acharyas, especially Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur, emphasized book publication. IKCM publishes original scriptural texts and their translations in regional and foreign languages for the benefit of fortunate readers.
Visiting the holy lilasthans of the Lord, those places where the Lord performed His sacred pastimes, is a strongly recommended practice for aspirant devotees. IKCM hosts a yearly parikram, pilgrimage, to Vrindavan annually.
