Welcome to Vedic City!


The International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) Johannesburg welcomes you to the Vedic City Project. We launched the project at ISKCON Lenasia on Sri Krishna Janmasthami on the 24th of August 2008. Our main objective is to infuse Johannesburg with Krishna Consciousness, the Divine Culture of Ancient India.

Vedic City offers the public a non-sectarian spiritual experience as taught by ISKCON's Founder Acharya His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.

We are developing a 'Prabhupada Museum and Reading Room' to enlighten the public about A.C. Bhaktivedanta's spiritual achievements and the sublime culture of Krishna Consciousness. Next year we will be offering courses on various aspects of Bhakti Yoga and Vedic Culture at our 'Academy for Spiritual Understanding.'

Please see our 'Events' page to keep up-to-date with Vedic City's activities. We will keep you posted as to where and when we will be holding our weekly programmes (beginning November 2008).

The recommended process for self-realization in this modern age is the of the Maha Mantra - Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna/ Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama/ Rama Rama, Hare Hare. 'Maha' means 'great'; and 'mantra' means 'prayer of deliverance' ie. 'great prayer of deliverance.'

We wish you all the best on your spiritual journey.

Thank you.

The Vedic City Team
