Our Goals
1. To establish a youth group of spiritually strong students, who are genuine practitioners and representatives of Sanatana Dharma (Krishna consciousness), who will be like beacon lights for guiding the rest of the society in spiritual life.
2. To train students in the philosophy of Krishna consciousness, its universal applicability especially to the present day generation, its profound depth along with logic & reasons.
3. To train students to become preachers of Sanatana Dharma.
4. To develop personality and build up character of youth, to give a real meaning to their lives, to live a God-centred life of purity and dedication with love and trust amongst one another.
5. To identify the talents in youth, and dovetail their talents for the service of God.
6. To render the most noble service of jnana-dana (the gift of knowledge), distributing the sublime message of the Vedas through spiritual book distribution at subsidised prices for youth.
7. To scientifically present Krishna conscious philosophy through all possible mediums of communication — books, notes, video/audio cassettes, OHP presentations, slide shows, dramas, charts, pictures, magazines, etc
