COLLABORATION WITH ISKCON DAIVA VARNASRAMA MINISTRY (INDIA)
The prestigious Mayapur Institute (MI) at Sridham Mayapur will for the first
time be running the 'Introductory Course' of Varnasrama College in
collaboration with ISKCON Daiva Varnasrama Ministry (India).
This is directly in line with Srila Prabhupada's ardent desire and
instruction to establish Varnasrama college courses everywhere wherever we
have got our center.
"The varnasrama college has to be established immediately. Everywhere,
wherever we have got our center, a varnasrama college should be established
to train four divisions: one class, brahmana; one class, ksatriya; one
class, vaisya; and one class, sudra. But everyone will be elevated to the
spiritual platform by the spiritual activities which we have prescribed.
...So everywhere, in each center, this system should be introduced, and
there must be practical application of the varnasrama. At the same time,
this program of devotional service. Then it will go on very nicely."
- Srila Prabhupada, Morning Walk, Vrndavana 12 March 1974
