The Global Office for the 50th Anniversary of ISKCON has released 8 new posters and banners as part of their ‘Poster-up’ campaign, and requested all temples and centers around the world to display these posters in prominent locations in their premises. The posters and banners can be downloaded from the ISKCON 50 website by clicking here.
“We have one general poster about the 50th, and seven other posters – one for each of the seven purposes of ISKCON,” said Anuttama Dasa, GBC Minister for Communications who is part of the International Executive Committee for the 50th Anniversary. “One of the aims of the 50thAnniversary is to educate the general public about ISKCON. The posters depicting the seven purposes will attempt to do that with attractive imagery and relevant information.”
The posters were designed by Paramsiddhi Devi Dasi from ISKCON Ahmedabad with storyboards and visualization provided by the ISKCON 50 Global Office.
“It is important that temples around the world start to publicize the 50th anniversary in a structured manner,” said Romapada Das, International Coordinator for the 50th Anniversary. “As part of our public profiling, every temple should start displaying these posters in their premises so that every visitor knows that it is our 50th anniversary year, and understands what ISKCON stands for.”
“The entire experience of designing these posters was an incredible journey,” described Paramsiddhi Devi Dasi. “We had to capture the mood of Prabhupada in each poster, and include images that were relevant to each of the seven purposes of ISKCON. We request all of you to please use these posters to inform your congregation, visitors and other public about ISKCON and its 50th anniversary.”
Temples can simply download the posters from the downloads section of the ISKCON 50 website and print them locally. The Global Office will also be making printed copies available at the special 50th anniversary booth at the ISKCON Leadership Sangha in Mayapur from 24thFebruary to 2nd March 2016. Those who wish to get hard copies can pick them up from the booth.
“Through these posters, I hope that people around the world will understand what Prabhupada envisioned for ISKCON, and start inquiring more to learn about our society’s spectacular achievements in the last fifty years,” concluded Romapada Das. “The 50th is a unique opportunity for us to glorify Prabhupada and to spread the sankirtana movement. Put up these posters so that everyone who comes to your temple starts to ‘think 50 and act 50’!”
