A Dispute Resolution Programme for ISKCON

Arnold M. Zack

In this paper Arnold Zack, an expert in the field of dispute resolution, plots the progress and development of an ISKCON that can deal with internal disputes in a timely, fair, and mature way.

A History of Education in ISKCON

Yadunandana Swami

In his role as principal of Bhaktivedanta College, ISKCON’s first theological seminary, Yadunandana Swami is uniquely placed to author this introduction to ISKCON’s often troubled educational history. In it he speaks with some of the people who were responsible for the development of education in ISKCON and charts the development of ISKCON education from being primarily concerned with teaching children to focusing on the Society’s adult members. This paper provides a context for understanding education in ISKCON today.
