The Municipal Government of Stockholm city: Save the oldest Hindu temple and Govinda’s vegetarian restaurant in Stockholm

The continued existence of this Spiritual Centre is now in danger since the landlord, a property company owned by the Municipality of Stockholm, has cancelled the renting contract with no offer of proper compensation. If this will not change, the whole Centre will be forced to close down its activities. Many people have expressed that this would be a great loss.

It is reasonable to claim that a municipal property company has a special responsibility to take into consideration the public benefit that this Centre offers to the population of Stockholm.

The Centre is run by ISKCON (International Society for Krishna Consciousness), the world´s largest international Hindu institution based on the ancient Vedic scriptures. It consists of a Hindu temple, famous vegetarian restaurant “Govinda’s”, which is the oldest in Sweden, and an Indian goods shop. The Centre has existed in Fridhemsplan (Central Stockholm) for over 34 years; and during its existence for public service it has developed to become an established cultural institution.

The Centre is yearly visited by up to 100 000 people of different categories: worshippers, spiritual seekers, teachers and students (for study visits), vegetarians/vegans, Hindus, global Indians etc. The visitors are benefitted by the variety of facilities and activities the Centre offers: worship, conduction of religious rituals such as marriage ceremonies, spiritual initiation etc, courses in spiritual philosophy, interfaith dialogues, devotional yoga, mantra meditation, Indian music and dance, theatre, vegetarian cooking, ayurvedic health care, as well as festivals, vegetarian karma free freshly cooked meals, a shop offering a variety of products that harmonize with a holistic healthy spiritual culture.

Please help us to keep the centre by signing the petition. Thank you!ae3c04d78cdccd7ef6a424224a4eb983
