Food for Life Training Manual
By ISKCON News Staff   |  Jan 01, 1901

In 1994, Priyavrata das, working under the guidance of Mukunda Goswami, wrote and published the first edition of the Food for Life Training Manual. Mukunda Goswami wrote the foreword to the manual, praising its importance to the preaching and success of the Krishna Consciousness movement.  

Part of that Foreword by Maharaja includes:

“Srila Prabhupada’s “secret weapon” (prasadam or the Krishna consciousness food culture) can dissolve mental, emotional, and psychological barricades to Krishna consciousness faster than any other Krishna consciousness program. 

“But to effectively dissipate such ignorance in a sustained way, we need more than just random distribution of prasadam. We need an organized, effective group effort led by devotees with spiritual vision.

“This manual’s practical and philosophical wisdom provides a foundation and perspective for launching Food for Life as a truly global campaign for cultural conquest. 

“Food for Life is an important way to show that ISKCON has a spiritual perspective (and some solutions) for the material problems of hunger, animal cruelty, ill health, malnutrition, and greed… 

“I am eternally indebted to Priyavrata for his selfless determination and dedication to assist me in helping to develop this essential field of Krishna consciousness activity.” 

The 320-page Food for Life Training manual covers a lot of ground to ensure the success of any devotee eager to succeed in prasadam distribution, including, how to start a program, what to serve, where to serve, and how to serve, as well as extensive guidance on using Food for Life for influencing the leaders of society. 

For the naysayers, the FFL manual is filled with quotes from Srila Prabhupada on the value and importance of prasadam distribution in the Krishna Consciousness movement.  

“I have decided to make this 3rd edition of the manual free so that as many devotees as possible can have access to this important information,” says Priyavrata das.
