We are working on this website, as a big project, to offer a one-stop-source for children services in our ISKCON world.
Everything that you would like to find for children in ISKCON will be here…
Not only do we create resources and material to add to the website but we also gather different resources from devotees and communities around the world.
You will find various kinds of fun activities for children, resources and training to prepare yourself for children services, and practical tools and support to set up children programs in your temple and/or congregations.
“That is the success of the movement, because younger generation, they are the flowers, the future hope of the country, of the world. If they take this movement seriously then the whole world will be happy.”
We are aware that some countries are in lockdown mode and we understand your need during this time to have more resources and activities to engage your children in Krsna consciousness. That is why we would like to offer you a special service to help you in this time of need by sharing with you a full chapter from our newly released book, Becoming Your Devotee!
This chapter, Tilaka – Our Vaisnava Uniform, contains arts and crafts, 25 fun-filled exercises, writing and personal application activities, word searches, games, a song, discussion questions and a drama script!
See the full description given by the author, Gourangi Gandharvika devi dasi
In order to be able to continue and develop our services, we are requesting a small donation,any amount will be greatly appreciated, even if it is just USD$2. We are working to offer you more resources and inspiration, so we are inviting you to please support us in this way.
Sometimes, as parents, we may worry about our service to the community. Indeed, how to find some time to serve the temple between the baby diapers, prasadam preparation and the homework to complete with the elder one? Thus we can feel discouraged or even guilty for not fulfilling our duties perfectly, at home as well as at the temple, thereby forgetting what parenting actually means in our spiritual life.
Due to Lord Nityananda’s mercy, the printing started on His appearance day. The book then arrived in Sridham Mayapur on Bhaksiddhanta Saraswati Thakur’s appearance day and it is now being released on the first day of ISKCON Leadership Sanga!
Right after offering to the Deities, we offered Becoming Your Devotee to our Minister – HH Jayapataka Swami – then he personally signed the book!
“I cannot describe the happiness I felt in being able to read the dedication of this book directly to Guru Maharaja! It was a dream come true to be able to offer ‘Becoming Your Devotee’ on the auspicious day that Srila Prabhupada also started his Back to Godhead magazines for the pleasure of his spiritual master.
This book is dedicated to my Guru Maharaja, HH Jayapataka Swami, who has been my greatest inspiration and pillar in my Krsna consciousness. He has dedicated his entire life to Srila Prabhupada’s instructions and at every moment is in complete surrender to Lord Caitanya’s preaching mission. He is continuously inspiring and empowering the Ministry to provide more services and support to the children of ISKCON congregations all around the world.”
The books will be physically in our Mayapur office, International shipping charges will be applicable as per the country.
Please note that the rates reduce drastically when the shipped amount is larger. If you like, we can connect you with devotees in your area who also want to order the book, write to us to firstname.lastname@example.org
We are very excited to announce the upcoming launch of a children’s Krishna conscious book filled with fun activities!
This will be a book series called:
“BECOMING YOUR DEVOTEE”
LEARN – BHAKTI – FUN
Are the 3 perfect words to describe this book.
We started this series of books with the conviction that learning about Krsna consciousness is fun and enjoyable. Learning should be exciting and this is what this book is trying to achieve.
Children learn best when they are actively hands-on engaged in the topic which is why we have included a wide range of fun-filled activities!
Becoming Your Devotee explores, in depth, 8 interesting Krsna conscious topics such as putting on tilaka, the 9 processes of devotional service, Lord Caitanya and Lord Nityananda and how to offer bhoga and arati.
More than 150 ways to engage your children in Krsna consciousness!

Lets together engage children in Kṛṣṇa consciousness in a fun way; to nourish their positive experiences in which they can find so much taste and happiness in devotional service, that will help them in their decision to be a devotee ofKṛṣṇa..
The first 5 years of a child’s life are very important to set the foundation of the parent-child relationship. Chankya Pandit says – “lalanam“, pamper the child for the first 5 years. What is this lalanam? It can be compared to the shaping of a pot.
When the clay is wet, the potter shapes the pot. He is gentle but firm, molding it to the desired form he wants. If he is too hard, the pot crumbles.
