The ISKCON 50 Global office launched the Inspiration Series videos on July 13th, the exact day that ISKCON was incorporated as a legal entity fifty years ago in 1966.
The Inspiration Series is a set of over 16 short videos that feature ISKCON leaders explaining the importance of the 50th anniversary of ISKCON and encouraging devotees to participate enthusiastically all over the world.
They can be viewed on the YouTube channels of ISKCON 50 and ISKCON Desire Tree.
The series which was produced by ISKCON 50 and filmed by ISKCON Desire Tree features ISKCON leaders such as Radhanatha Swami, Gopal Krishna Goswami, Bhakticharu Swami, Bhakti Purushottam Swami, Anuttama Das, Devakinandan Das, Rameshvara Das and several others.
“We want as many people as possible to participate enthusiastically in the 50th anniversary,” explained Romapada Das, the producer of the series who is the International Coordinator for the 50th anniversary. “Devotees naturally draw personal inspiration from many of our stalwart leaders. Therefore, we hope that by watching the clips where our leaders talk about the 50th anniversary, more and more devotees will feel encouraged to participate locally in the celebrations.”
The Global Office plans to release two to three videos every week from 13th July.
“The first videos we are releasing are those of Radhanatha Swami and Anuttama Das,” said Parampara Vani Das from ISKCON Desire Tree who headed the filming team. “These can immediately be viewed on our YouTube channels. We hope to release all the films in six weeks.”
“The 50th anniversary is one of the most important milestones in this lifetime for many of us,” explained Anuttama Das, GBC Minister for Communications and a member of the International Executive Committee of ISKCON 50. “The Inspiration Series is therefore an important tool for helping our worldwide devotee community understand the importance of the 50th, and motivate them to play an active part in it.”
