Deity Worship Ministry

The ISKCON Deity Worship Ministry facilitates and encourages the maintenance and development of deity worship according to Srila Prabhupada’s example and teachings by offering education, resources and guidance to inspire and nourish devotees’ desire to worship the deity form of the Lord. Additionally, we strive to foster within ISKCON the corresponding brahmana Vaisnava culture centered on the service and worship of the Supreme Lord, Sri Krsna.

The Ministry is very active in developing and offering training, which includes:

  • Mayapur Academy (deity worship school)

  • seminars on deity worship

  • on-site training and evaluation to managers and pujaris at ISKCON centers worldwide

  • educating ISKCON leaders in the importance of deity worship

 

We also offer various resources to assist devotees in the worship of the Lord, including:

  • periodicals and manuals

  • Internet-based information

  • training videos
