“I’ve learnt that the best way to help yourself is to help other people. That does wonderful things for your mental health and your idea of what you are worth. You don’t get that in the shops or on Instagram. I thought I was helping them. Then I found out that they were helping me” (Ellie)

Your generosity enables us to maintain regular Deity worship, daily free food distribution, special festivals, and community outreach. Alongside our priests and Deity worship team, you are a crucial link in our chain of service to please Krishna.
