SANKIRTAN ORIENTATION SEMINAR

SANKIRTAN ORIENTATION SEMINAR (SOS 101)

Srila Prabhupada’s mission was to write and distribute transcendental books far and wide so that it can change people’s lives. He has quoted that even 1% become devotees, it will change the entire world. As we are continuing to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of ISKCON, here is an opportunity to learn the art of distributing his books through a dynamic and hands on seminar. After a successful and inspiring seminar last year, on the request of devotees, we present the Sankirtan Orientation Seminar 101 (SOS 101) once again for your pleasure. We are also adding a new location in the east coast (Toronto) this time.

SOS 101 will help you acquire the tools of trade by learning the nuances of book distribution, basic laws, codes of conduct and success stories along with hands on sessions in a fun filled environment. You’ll learn tips and strategies to successfully distribute Srila Prabhupada’s books to anyone and everyone. This is a wonderful opportunity to attend as a family as we have hands on practical Sankirtan sessions to children as well. Join us for this enlivening course and boost your self-confidence!

Testimonials

Anjaneya Tirtha Das (Toronto)

Suneet (Austin)

"Before attending the seminar, we never distributed a Srimad Bhagavatam Set on door to door distribution.  Even the thought of speaking to someone we met Door2Door about Srimad Bhagavatam was discomforting, but after going out on a field trip with devotees at ISV we realized that it was possible to distribute a set by just glorifying Srimad Bhagavatam. We were really excited about this change in our perspective and after we returned to Toronto we distributed 4 sets going out on door to door within the first one month. We also witnessed an  increase in number of maha big books being distributed after coming back to Toronto!! All glories to HG Vaisesika prabhu and devotees of ISV for inspiring us."

"The Sankirtan SOS seminar was an incredibly beneficial and memorable experience. Highly organized and inspiring sessions, practical tips from expert sankirtan devotees and the experience of going out on book distribution with the empowered group gave immense confidence and increased my faith in the power of Srila Prabhupada's books and their power in changing peoples' lives. In Toronto, we have been trying to share  the learning from the sessions and I would recommend anyone who has appreciation for Srila Prabhupada's books to attend this one-of-a-kind seminar on learning how to share these gems."

"It was a great experience to attend the Sankirtan Orientation Seminar at ISKCON Silicon Valley. To be in association of great Vaishnavas and stalwart Sankirtan leaders from all around America was very inspiring. The seminars were very enlivening and both field trips were very powerful. Doing service in a group with mood of compassion and gratitude is what I saw throughout the weekend in ISV. The whole weekend was extremely well organized and covered a broad spectrum of Sankirtan styles. I especially enjoined Sets distribution, MotelGita and Kids Sankirtan seminars. The field trips were also very well managed and by example, they all perfectly manifested the first principle of Book Distribution - "Get Organized". The devotees also took excellent care of every visiting guest by facilitating good accommodations and amazing Prasadam! This is a seminar that all Sankirtan devotees need to take. Much gratitude to all devotees of ISV community for hosting us and making such superb arrangements. All glories to HG Vaisesika Prabhu and ISV Yatra!"
