Value Education Programs of Iskcon Mumbai

Many schools in Mumbai were alarmed at the erosion of social and moral values in our society, so they requested the ISKCON Chowpatty, to conduct value based education programs in various schools in Mumbai. 

So in the year 2000, ISKCON began this program to enlighten the students about the devotional values of the “Bhagvad Gita”. This program covers more than 2,000 students in various schools  starting from the 5th standard up to 10th standard.

The Temple also conducts a weekend program called Gopal’s Fun School, where children from 4 years to 14 years, are taught stories about the Vedas, learn bhajans and are taught meditation. This facilitates their personality development and builds up their character.

Radha Nath Swami started this temple and he got his spiritual initiation fro Srila Prabhupad. Radha Nath Swami was initially a Jew, but the teachings of Krishna had a great impact on him, that he became a great devotee of Lord Krishna and came and settled in Chowpatty, Mumbai.
