Lot of fortunate souls come to Vrindavan dham to serve as full time devotees in Krsna Balaram temple and many of them are totally new to Krsna consciousness. New Bhakta department aims at training these devotees in all basic aspects of Krsna consciousness before they take up services in different departments of the temple.
This includes daily chanting of 16 rounds of maha mantra, studying Srila Prabhupada books, attending Morning program and Evening program, following 4 regulative principles and learning basic Krsna conscious philosophy and Vaisnava etiquette. They also learn how to play musical instruments, perform sankirtana, distribute Srila Prabhupada books and they daily go out of Nagar sankirtana in the streets of Vrindavan and near by villages to distribute the holy names.
They render various services which gives them opportunity to cultivate the mood of humility like deity back up services, temple and ashram cleaning, Prasadam serving in the temple etc. During the training they also get an opportunity to hear Krsna katha from many Srila Prabhupada disciples, sannyasis and senior devotees visiting ISKCON Vrindavan.
By the end of the training they will be following the basic principles of Krsna consciousness, developed commitment and dedication to serving the mission of Srila Prabhupada, gained maturity to deal with devotees and outsiders and will be ready to start rendering services in temple.
There is also facility for the candidates who are planning to enter into grhastha ashrama, to receive training for few months to get some brahmacari experience before entering into grhastha ashrama. This will highly enhance the quality of candidate’s practice of Krsna consciousness after getting married.
