The Siksa Program is a system for encouraging the congregation by recognizing their chanting and spiritual standards. It is a great way to help congregational devotees consolidate and increase their spiritual practices. It also offers a system to identify those who are serious about advancing in Krishna consciousness. The Siksa Program has five levels, gradually leading to initiation.
Sraddhavan: Chanting at least one round of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra every day and reading Srila Prabhupada’s books
Krishna-sevaka: Chanting at least four rounds of japa daily, refraining from meat-eating, believing in Lord Krishna as the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and avoiding grossly immoral acts
Krishna-sadhaka: Chanting at least eight rounds and practicing sadhana bhakti by worshipping Krishna at home and eating only prasada. Refraining from intoxication, meat-eating, gambling and extra-marital sex
Srila Prabhupada Asraya: Following the four regulative principles, solid sadhana, chanting 16 rounds daily.
Sri Guru Charan Asraya: Practicing Srila Prabhupada Asraya standard for a minimum of six months, with additional faith in and surrender to a present ISKCON initiating spiritual master
The Shiksa levels are awarded to deserving candidates at a special program, usually on a festival day in the temple, and a certificate is usually awarded by the Temple President to the devotee who has achieved the appropriate level of advancement.
The program aims to give congregational devotees gradual recognition and encouragement on the path towards achieving the standards required for initiation in ISKCON.

ISKCON YOUTH FORUM (IYF) is part of ISKCON Sri Jagannath Mandir Bangalore.
Spirit of IYF
IYF envisions a society of dynamic young men and women, ready to live a life of values, culture and devotion to God. Our mission is to empower everyone with knowledge of the Bhagavad Gita that helps to differentiate between truth and illusion; revive faith that is based on scientific principles, logic and self-realization.
Spiritual life is often misunderstood as dry, rigid, blind submission, devoid of rational thought, denying enjoyment and a paper-theory that never works in practice. We offer a pleasant surprise to the skeptics and suspicious; new light and direction to the confused and frustrated; a meaningful lifestyle to the hip and cool; a genuine experience for the curious and contemporary spiritual seekers. The ever-fresh world of Krishna consciousness challenges one to draw the best of one’s creativity and talent as an offering to Sri Krishna.
We organize and train in
Workshops, Seminars and Presentations on philosophy, art, culture
Yoga Retreats for a getaway towards the inner self
Picnics to charming places seemingly lost
Mantra Meditation tips and techniques to keep the spirit active
Music, Dance and Drama for those unforgettable moments
Lifestyle Counseling to balance pressures from all corners
Culture and Etiquette to do the right thing at the right time in the right place
Leadership and Management Skills to confidently and smartly go ahead
Public Speaking, Debates and Quizzes for words to make impact
Personality and Character Development to stand out of the crowd
Now Is The Time
The first aphorism of the Vedanta Sutra issues a clarion call: athato brahma-jignyasa. “Therefore, now that you have got the human form of life, inquire into the Absolute Truth.” To embark on this spiritual journey in the quest of undying happiness – what better time can there be other than youth, when we are full with energy, enthusiasm and determination ? Now is the time to begin this internal revolution of uplifting our consciousness.
Our members come from a wide spectrum of society – software engineers, doctors, project managers, scientists, academicians, collegians, businessmen etc. We welcome all genuine seekers of Truth irrespective of the background.
