Last weekend, two academic conferences were held, one in the US and one in the UK, in honor of ISKCON's 50th Anniversary. Both were impressive and note the growing impact of ISKCON as a global movement, as well as demonstrating the attention our society still garners among scholars of religion.

One event was a 3-day program at Harvard University's Center for the Study of World Religions. The opening night was held in the very room where Srila Prabhupada spoke at Harvard nearly 50 years ago. The program included comments by a Muslim scholar who was present as a young Harvard student when Srila Prabhupada spoke. An academic book will be published next year from the twenty plus papers presented.
