Devotees needed at Manor

by Bhagadatta das

Posted October 4, 2003

Dear Prabhus,

Please accept my humble obeisances.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

The Bhaktivedanta Manor temple needs 2-3 devotees between 20 and 35 - male or female - who are willing to come and perform devotional service in one of the most important and well established ISKCON projects.

The candidates have to be ready to perform different services, including - cleaning, helping in the kitchen, helping in the pujari room and various other types of services as required. You will have to do a minimum of 6 hours of service every day with one day off per week.

We will provide you with good lodging facilities in our ashram quarters, sumptuous prasadam and a weekly allowance which would cover your laundry expenses and some other minimal needs.

The Bhaktivedanta Manor is a well established devotee community in a semi-rural environment and houses about 50 resident devotees. We have a wide range of preaching programs which would provide you with an opportunity to keep a balanced program of temple life and preaching. There is a harinam party going to London every Saturday as well as on festival days. We have a useful library and there are frequently various courses held for those who wish to study Vaisnava philosophy in their spare time. The Manor is constantly visited by different ISKCON gurus and other senior traveling preachers and devotees from our movement.

We can engage you for six months but those of you who excel in their performance and like very much doing service in our temple could get their stay prolonged.

All candidates should fill out the R1 form (a word document). You can either send your completed forms by e-mail to my e-mail address:, or by snail mail to the following address:

Bhagadatta dasa
Bhaktivedanta Manor
Hilfield Lane, Aldenham

Alternatively, you can also send your completed forms by faxing them to the following number: +44 1923 852 896 (mark your fax "For the Attn. of Bhagadatta")

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have some questions!

your humble servant,
Bhagadatta Dasa
