- Dublin Winter Kirtan Mela 2018

And now after few successful Kirtan festivals in Dublin during the year, we are very inspired and pleased to keep up the work and  So here we are, on full preparation mode for our hopefully biggest Kirtan Mela of Dublin for the year 2019. But as always we depend on the generosity of all of you supporting our festival to make this happen! So we have set up another fundraising campaign for this summer!

What do we collecting for?

Since our Kirtan Melas keeps growing in numbers and interest, we have decided to change the frequency of our program from one mela a season to one big mela a year where we can have a bigger space to cater for our attendees and with more Guest Kirtaniyas. We are hoping to have Kirtaniyas coming from all over the world - Ireland, Canada and UK to provide everyone with an even better experience and deepen their relationship with holyname. To ensure we supply a warm welcome to all our guests and to comfortably fit in as many kirtan lovers as possible, we decided to move to a new and larger venue. In this new space, we will pick up right where we left off, bringing you the same unique chanting experience with our local and international kirtaniyas, but with an even bigger floor space to dance on and better ventilation! We had €290 that was left from our Spring Mela that we used towards our guests flight tickets. 

We really want to built upon that momentum to make the experience a quality and profound one for all those that partake. So slowly but surely we are already starting the ground work to what should be a special Kirtan experience! So please help us by supporting us in any way you can.

ISKCON Divisional Councils 3.4.3


An ISKCON Divisional Council is a body that performs certain managerial functions on behalf of an individual Zonal Secretary, on behalf of a group of Zonal Secretaries serving in the same general area or on behalf of a Regional Governing Body for conduct of the affairs of the ISKCON society within a clearly designated contiguous geographical area, called a "Division." The geographical area in question could be a group of small countries, a single country or a section of a single country, but it should be small enough such that all temple leaders within the area would be generally familiar with ISKCON's activities throughout the geographical area, and such that the members would be able to meet together several times per year. Formation of Divisional Councils

Wherever there are functioning Regional Governing Bodies, these Bodies shall designate the Divisions for formation of the Divisional Councils within the Region, in consultation with the Zonal Secretaries actively functioning within the Region.

Where there is no functioning RGB, the appointed GBC Zonal Secretaries may designate specific areas as Divisions and may form Divisional Councils for these Divisions. Such designation must be done in writing, addressed to the GBC Secretary and signed by all GBC Zonal Secretaries assigned to the area in question. The GBC Secretary shall acknowledge such designations. If no such written designation has been made then any bodies constituted shall be considered as informal bodies as described under Section 3.4.2. Divisional Council Membership

A Divisional Council shall be constituted of all Temple Presidents, all Preaching Center managers, all Regional Secretaries and all Zonal Secretaries (that wish to attend) within the region as well as resident sannyasis or other leading devotees as the council desires or as the local Zonal Secretaries recommend. Divisional Council Functions

1. Serve as a forum for coordination of the overall preaching strategy in the Division.
2. Serve as a forum for coordination of the implementation of GBC policies, guidelines and resolutions applicable within the Division.
3. Serve as a forum for resolution of any conflicts within the Division. This includes handling of complaints on local matters referred to it by the GBC Body, the RGB, any ISKCON official or body or from individuals.
4. Making recommendations to the RGB, where appropriate, for RGB or GBC legislation.
5. Making recommendations to any Zonal Secretary or other ISKCON official functioning within the Division on matters concerning local affairs.
6. Where necessary and appropriate, undertaking disciplinary action against ISKCON officials and/or other devotees serving within the Division, as allowed under ISKCON law for such a body.

A Divisional Council may also perform other functions within the Division as specifically assigned to it by a Zonal Secretary, the RGB or the GBC Body, such as approving the opening or closing of ISKCON centers, appointing Temple officers, taking final decisions on matters of dispute, deciding on territorial matters among the various temples, making recommendations on sannyasa candidates, formally considering the nomination of candidates who reside within their area of responsibility for serving as new initiating gurus, checking into the management of the local ISKCON centers, overseeing spiritual standards, etc.

The ISKCON Ireland National Management Council: it's origin, purpose, structure and membership

(Why does it exist, what does it do, and who serves on it?)

The international Governing Body Commission (GBC) of ISKCON recommends that all temple managers in the same country form a national management team that meets on a regular basis. (See appendix)

The first National Management Council (NMC) in Ireland was formed in 1988. This current team has been working together since June 2016 and meets approximately every two months.

The NMC strives to create a national preaching strategy so that we can best utilize our temples, finances, and the skills of the devotees. We try to ensure that there is 'joined up thinking'. We attempt to uphold devotional and preaching standards and deal with the many things that are involved in management. We help, advise, support and encourage each other.

The NMC consists of the local GBC representative, the Temple President or Chairperson from each temple, up to two other managers from each temple, any national department heads, resident sannyasis plus any other devotees who may have a specific expertise that is highly useful. NMC members do not receive any remuneration.

The current members are:

Praghosa das (GBC representative/ Chairman of NMC/ Dublin temple council representative)
Manu das (Temple President, Dublin)
Bhagavati dasi( Belfast temple council representative)
Gaura Nitai das (Chairman of Inis Rath temple council/ NMC Legal Advisor / NMC Vice Chairman)
Isani dasi (Dublin temple council representative)
Karunesvari dasi (Inis Rath temple council representative/ NMC Vice Secretary)
Madhava Krsna das (Inis Rath temple council representative / National BBT manager)
Vrsabhanu das (Belfast temple council representative)
Krsna-katha das (NMC Secretary)

The NMC are servants of the Irish yatra and are thus dependent on the support, good will and co-operation of the devotees in Ireland in order for their service to be effective. Therefore we very much welcome both feedback and whatever contribution the devotees can offer. The more we can work together, the more we can achieve on behalf of Srila Prabhupada.

Minutes from our meetings are placed on temple noticeboards and temple websites and are sent by e mail to members of our congregation. If you wish to receive a copy of the minutes directly or wish to raise an agenda item, please contact the secretary, Krsna-katha das, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. (You can also approach any NMC member regarding agenda items if that is more convenient).
