18 November 2019 - 18 January 2020 - SRI DHAM MAYAPUR



One of the most ambitious and universal purposes Srila Prabhupada set for ISKCON is the very first one

"To systematically propagate spiritual knowledge to society at large and to educate all peoples 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"


Create partnerships and alliances with emerging spiritual networks, government, corporate and non-governmental organizations, providing spiritual solutions to material problems. Become instrumental in establishing the Golden Age in the social, educational, cultural, environmental, spiritual and welfare fields around the globe. Create a bright future for yourself and other devotees and spiritual people by making your living through doing what you enjoy and believe in!



Fluency in English is a must, as well as some leadership and organizational abilities. A positive attitude and cooperative spirit, together with freedom from obsession with any negativity

Educational degrees in ISKCON and other leading institutions, networking experience and a desire to act as a versatile specialist

We set quite high standards. Graduates will be expected to pioneer in highly responsible roles, making a path for others


Limited offer: We can accept and accommodate only 30 international participants. First come - first served. Make sure you don't miss it!

The full estimate of training costs is US$1370 or 88000Rs per student to cover prasadam, accommodation in Vaisnava Academy, materials and running expenses for the entire duration of the course

We are bringing the very best teachers and developers to provide you with a first class training, enabling you to reach your greatest heights. And they agreed to do it free of charge! Nevertheless, to show our gratitude we want to provide good facilities for them, all their travel expenses, as well as moderate donations, to ensure their future participation

For those students not capable of covering their costs we might be able to provide partial or even full scholarship, depending on each case

Nestled between the sacred river Ganges, the whispering rice fields and the adjacent Radha Madhava Temple, one of India’s most sacred places of worship, Vaishnava Academy, Mayapur is said to be an experience too surreal to be true

Vaishnava Academy Mayapur was built as a retreat center for spiritual training and education. A wide variety of seminars and workshops offers relaxation, rejuvenation and inspiration for body, mind and soul

The staff take care of guests with the exceptional grace, charm and attention to detail for which Asian hospitality is known

Two hours and a half from the airport, 5 minutes from the temple, 10 mins from the famously breathtaking Srila Prabhupada Samadhi (and also the shopping area), stepping foot on Vaishnava Academy Mayapur means moving out of the present and entering a new dimension that is quite other-wordly

It is a place where time stops, where the most spiritual tales took place once upon a long time ago



What's the principal difference between this school and any other one in ISKCON?

This school is specifically aimed at training leaders for outreach initiatives - not ISKCON managers

Can I come for a month or so, if I don't have time to stay for the entire training?

It may be possible, if we have a vacancy. The number of students is limited due to the interactive nature of the school, therefore we give priority to the full time students

Why do I need to get training from these devotees if I could get professional training in the fields at my home country?

There is a special advantage of learning and getting trained by senior devotees, since we want to present Krsna to the world in easily acceptable way. Our teachers and most of the students already have some experience and success in this regard. We're trying to bring together the very best faculty members and students for you not just to have an unforgettable experience, but to connect and work together with them in future!

Why do you want students to travel all the way to Mayapur to take the training, if it could be done online?

We want to have an advantage of personal association and interaction for the sake of getting to know each other very well, which is not really achievable through the web. Plus you'll get an advantage of residing in a holy place. One of our big goals is to create a global community of leaders, who will support each other in all respects
