By His Grace Jaya Sada Gosai Das

To the casual observer, ISKCON Adelaide may appear to be just a fledgling temple; there are not many ashram residents and the congregation is small. But those who spend just a little time either strolling through our expansive gardens, or attending our programs, or serving with our devotees will realize that they have arrived in a very special place. And, when they take darshan of our resplendent Sri-Sri Radha Shyamasundara, they will have no doubt that ISKCON Adelaide's community and especially its leadership are keenly focused on advancing Srila Prabhupada's mission.

ISKCON Adelaide scored yet another first by succeeding in its bid to cater during the Sai National Conference held from 6th – 9th March, 2015. This was a big challenge to us as never before have we done a catering to such a large gathering. Also the menu was varying from lunch to dinner and swinging from the occident to the orient. However with the cooperation and sacrificial attitude of the devotees we were able to pull it off. The participants of the conference were all full of praise for the food and very much appreciated the forbearance of our team. We would like to sincerely thank the organisers of the Sai National Conference for giving us an opportunity to serve Krsna prasadam.
