Vibhu Caitanya Das Introduces the PADMAProject

Dear Friends

Hare Krishna! I am thrilled to introduce you to the PADMAProject. About a year ago, I assembled a dedicated team to action a strategic growth and development plan for the next 30 years, focussing on serving the Vaishnavas and greater community better and with a view to financial freedom. When we hear “strategic” we may feel it does not translate into action and there has been much discussion and even unveiling of proposed plans in the past. So, how is this initiative different? Srila Prabhupada said that ISKCON will grow with intelligence and organisation. This team is determined to present a workable plan with achievable targets. We have covered groundwork and we can now present the PADMAProject to our community. You can read about the project here: http://iskcondurban.net/?page_id=5074  The PADMAProject is evolving and any project of this magnitude has benefits and risks. How would you like to see the temple grow? You are invited to be part of the evolution and be part of the “Blossoming of ISKCON Durban.” Please complete the Community Needs Assessment online: https://forms.gle/h9uRXjoLZ3gFkqSp9

Your servant
