Seven Purposes of ISKCON
1. To systematically propagate spiritual knowledge
to society at large and to educate all people in the
techniques of spiritual life in order to check the imbalance
of values in life and to achieve real unity and peace
in the world.
2. To propagate a consciousness of Krishna (God),
as it is revealed in the great scriptures of India,
Bhagavad-gita and Srimad-Bhagavatam.
3. To bring the members of the Society together with
each other and nearer to Krishna, the prime entity,
thus developing the idea within the members, and humanity
at large, that each soul is part and parcel of the quality
of Godhead (Krishna).
4. To teach and encourage the sankirtana movement,
congregational chanting of the holy name of God, as
revealed in the teachings of Lord Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.
5. To erect for the members and for society at large
a holy place of transcendental pastimes dedicated to
the personality of Krishna.
6. To bring the members closer together for the purpose
of teaching a simpler, more natural way of life.
7. With a view towards achieving the aforementioned
purposes, to publish and distribute periodicals, magazines,
books and other writings.
