What is IYF C2C?
ISKCON Youth Forum- Connect to Change.
It has always been the deepest desire of Srila Prabhupada, and therefore, the same desire manifested in Srila Gurudev’s heart, that provisions should be made in order to provide the youngsters maximum possible exposure and association of this unfathomable Hare Krishna movement. They believed that Young India is a power in itself that has the potential to empower the entire country. A nations youth is the most important resource it has, as it is the backbone of the ideals of the nation, and the strongest medium to bring about a change. Hence, whosoever would be connected to this forum would connect himself with a change, and would simultaneously bring about a positive change in himself or herself.
HH Kratu Dasji Maharaj Guidance
HH Kratu Das ji Maharaj puts it very simply in stating the ‘Objectives’ of IYF-C2C.
He puts emphasis on the key words of ISKCON, ‘Love, Trust and Cooperation’ and says that the prime objective of IYF should also be to promote these three necessary traits. Apart from that, helping ISKCON, helping each other to gain bliss is one of the major objectives. “How youth can become peaceful, blissful and happy for their entire life, that should be the goal!” And to achieve this goal there is a need for personality development and character building, by making one’s life centred towards God. This can be achieved by dovetailing the talents of the youngsters in Krishna’s service.
