  11. 11. Srila Prabhupada said<br />“I am very encouraged to hear how San Diego center is flourishing under your supervision. The test is that so many new devotees are coming.That is very good sign. Now you must take care to train them very nicely. They are voluntarily giving their lives to Krishna, so as president you must see that they are always happy and satisfied in Krishna consciousness. Then they will not go away.”<br />SP's letter to Bhakti dasa Nov 20th 1971<br />

  20. 20. Other Accomplishments<br />Newsletter: Revati Ramana dasa and the devotees of ISKCON Tirupati published two issues of a full color newsletter on devotee care<br />Website: Revati Ramana dasa developed the Devotee Care website<br />
  21. 21. DCC Vision Statement<br />Every devotee in ISKCON is to be provided with the spiritual, mental/emotional and physical care they deserve as parts and parcels of Krsna according to Srila Prabhupada's instruction and example. This should be done on the personal and institutional level.<br />
  22. 22. Mission Statement<br />We care and strive for the spiritual, physical and emotional well-being of the devotees of ISKCON<br />So that they are encouraged, inspired and empowered to be happy and make progress in Krsna consciousness<br />And thus be enthused to expand Srila Prabhupada’s mission.<br />
  23. 23. Strategic Statement<br />We assist with the overall management and facilitation of the leaders of ISKCON in taking care of devotees.<br />The real assets of ISKCON are the devotees, not the physical assets. <br />Krishna is the provider of all what we lack and preserves all what we have. <br />The real success of a yatra is the creation of a happy, loving Vaishnava community. <br />... More ...<br />
  24. 24. Strategic Statement<br />We need to give life long personal care to the devotees for them to make continued progress in spiritual life.<br />This includes personal attention to both their spiritual and material lives. <br />This is done in a brotherly mood of compassion and love, sacrificing some of our time and pride.<br />
  25. 25. Five Global Principles of Devotee Care<br />1) The culture of care permeates all activities.<br /><ul><li>The success of a project is judged by the care it provides to devotees.
  26. 26. All forms of devotee care should be acknowledged, appreciated and awarded.</li></ul>2) The principles of care are global, but their application is local.<br /><ul><li> Have to apply differently according to different circumstances.</li></ul>.... More ...<br />
  27. 27. Five Global Principles of Devotee Care<br />3) Practical applications of Devotee care should uphold Srila Prabhupadas teachings and mood.<br />They should be favorable to the development of the spiritual life of the individual. Srila Prabhupada did not compromise with the teachings of Guru Parampara, and he applied them in such a way that every one felt welcome and benefited.<br />... More ...<br />
  28. 28. Five Global Principles of Devotee Care<br />4) Devotee care is personal.<br />Devotee care to be given in a mature way according to the needs, interests and concerns of the individual being helped. Care is given in proportion to the spiritual commitment <br />5) Mood of Devotee care-giver.<br />Care to be given in the mood of being the servant of the servant. All categories of members are worthy of being respected and valued. Individual choice of care should be honored.<br />
  29. 29. Devotee Care Commitments<br />We make a commitment to holistic, sustainable and collaborative approaches to tackling problems at all levels.<br />There should be equal access for all devotees for programs and facilities of Devotee care<br />We have a firm belief in the adage that Prevention is better than cure<br />
  30. 30. Care Spectrum<br />We encourage the creation of departments and systems for caring for all areas of our devotee community including but not limited to:<br />Temple devotees<br />Congregation devotees<br />The elderly<br />Families<br />Women<br />Children<br />Guests, Care-Givers, and Leaders<br />
  31. 31. Devotee Needs<br />The needs of a devotee can be divided into three categories:<br />i. Bodily needs (physical)<br /> ii. Needs of the mind (mental/emotional and social)<br /> iii. Needs of the Soul (spiritual)<br />
  32. 32. Physical Care - Challenges<br />If the temple authorities do not adequately address the needs of a devotee of weak health, it is likely the individual’s faith in the ISKCON society will weaken. This weakness of faith from one individual can have a domino effect on the broader community of devotees<br />To educate and facilitate the devotees in practices that bring good health. This will then help them to practice their sadhana and render their service to the Supreme Lord without hindrance<br />
  33. 33. Physical Care Challenges<br />Health (General)<br />1.Indifferent health<br />2.Lack of awareness of good diet/ natural living<br />3.Lack of knowledge of the importance of keeping fit<br />Health (Temple Dependent Devotees)<br />4.Cost of Medical Care<br />5.Unregulated Meal Times<br />6.Lack of sufficient rest<br />...
