    Our philosophy is practical and is applicable in every aspect of our lives, whether it is work, food, recreation or mediation.  We learn to live in harmony with the laws of nature and extend that knowledge to others through our various outreach activities.

  • Service

    True happiness comes when our desire to love and be loved is fulfilled. To develop love for God and cultivate loving relationships with all living entities is the basis of Bhakti Yoga. So we invite you to come and learn more about this process of selfless loving service.

    • HG Visvakarma Prabhu & HG Rohini Mataji
      Visvakarma Prabhu has been serving ISKCON Chicago for nearly 20 years as the head cook for Sunday Feast, festivals, and daily morning and evening offerings. He is known for his creativity in the kitchen and his unique ability to create a feast in practically no time. He is also part of the team of pujaris that serve the Deities at the temple.
      Rohini Mataji leads garland-making for the Deities, among other services every day of the week. Visitors to the temple frequently remark on the beauty and creativity of the garlands that adorn the Deities on the altar.
      This husband & wife team is an example of persistence and commitment in service to Krishna. No matter what the weather, no matter what other circumstances or challenges present themselves, they are there at the temple enthusiastically and lovingly serving Sri Sri Kishore Kishori. So it is with great pleasure that these two exemplary devotees are the first to be recognized as jewels of ISKCON Chicago.
