ISKCON Constitution – Your Chance to Participate!
Through the years, various attempts at writing the ISKCON Constitution took place but did not come to completion. The present team has been receiving feedback on their work from various leaders. Based on their suggestions and on further research, the team developed the present version, Draft Four. We are now opening the dialogue to the whole of ISKCON, inviting everyone to share comments and suggestions that may improve the document to create a final version for GBC ratification. This is a historic opportunity for all members of ISKCON. We want to hear from you. Please take the time to go through the document, organized in sections, and let us know your level of satisfaction and your thoughts. The site requires you to register to get access. Once you register, you’ll see the guidelines for giving feedback. We have tried to make this process as easy as possible. Please click here.
