Bhagavat Gita 4.7-4.8
Yada yada hi dharmasya glanir bhavati bharata
abhyutthanam adharmasya tadatmanam srjam yaham;
Paritranaya sadhunam vinasaya ca duskrtam
dharma-samsthapanarthaya sambhavami yuge yuge

 The “Bhakti Centre Gold Coast” was established early April 2007 in Surfers Paradise Gold Coast Australia by two local ISKCON devotees, Yamalarjuna Das (Ian Salter) and Subhangi Devi Dasi (Susan Manning).   It is however their humbleness that they always give all credits to “Lord Krsna” and kindly say that by the mercy of “Srila Prabhupada” this spiritual project had been possible.

The aim to set-up the Bhakti Centre was to spread “Krishna Consciousness” through conducting Bhagavat-Gita Classes, Kirtan and Bhajans, Meditation and Chanting Techniques, and of course enjoying the higher taste of Pure Vegetarian Prashadam as a final conclusion to the twice weekly programs.  The Temple also holds special events and festivals as per the Vaisnav Calendar.

At present, the Centre is fully funded by the Govinda’s Restaurant and Pashin Boutiques in Gold Coast for all major costs of operation.  The local Devotees also make generous donations.  Devotees are also welcome to sponsor Weekly programs or Festivals (like Gaura Purnima, Janamastami, Ram Navmi, etc) or Personal Events (like Birthdays, Student Graduations, Wedding Receptions, etc).

All devotees of the Lord either local resident or tourists are welcome to the Temple.  It belongs to you all.  Please come along with your family and friends to hear the Songs of the Divine and sing the Glories of the Lord.  Haribol!

All Glories to our ISKCON Founder-Acharya, AC Bhaktivedanta Srila Prabhupada!
