H

are Krishna everyone welcome to the 2013 annual review.

This year we are trying something new in order to better serve and inspire you. We have created a visually dazzling pictorial year in review, with a full, web-loaded interactive experience which will allow you to play videos, visit web pages, and contact persons in the areas you find of most interest. Please visit this document live on www.iskcon-london.org and experience it first hand.

2013 was another amazing year in the service of Their Lordships and Their most wonderful devotees. One of the highlights for me was the opening of the ISKCON Crawley Bhakti Yoga Centre in the South Region - seeing a community develop in such an inspiring way and working together to share, grow and spread the message of Lord Caitanya in Srila Prabhupada’s mission.

I pray you find inspiration in the pages that follow and encourage you to please get involved if you are not already. I also thank all of you who give so much of your time and energy to make ISKCON London such a thriving and dynamic Vaisnava community. Your Servant

Association with devotees means association with the Lord. The devotee who makes this association develops the consciousness for rendering service to the Lord, and then, being situated in the transcendental position of devotional service, he gradually becomes perfect. SB 3.25.25 Purport
