Based on the teachings of His Divine Grace, A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada,ISKCON, Hyderabad has been presenting this treasure house of spiritual knowledge to youth through ‘Friends Of Lord Krishna’ (FOLK) since the year 1997. What began as a small endeavour has now transformed itself into a juggernaut with more than 1000 youngsters making their way to ISKCON every Saturday and Sunday for a gala gathering of an enjoyable evening of spiritual classes, music, dance and not to forget prasadam—delicious food offered to Lord Krishna.
The FOLK programme employs highly interactive sessions handled by experienced faculties who have graduated out of premier institutes such as the IITs and IIMs and who have dedicated their livesas missionaries for over 20 years. Now, they wish to share the same spiritual joy that they experienced in their lives. A typical programme on Sunday consists of teaching how to apply Vedic wisdom to current world realities. Solutions are provided to difficult problems that youth encounter in their daily lives, such as how to manage stress, how to improve memory and concentration, how to get rid of bad habits, how to excel in life, etc.
