Life patron membership
Who Can Enroll: Anyone at least 18 years of age can be enrolled. However, the underage child of an existing life patron can become a life patron upon payment of existing full fees. There are no restrictions on citizenship, country of residence, etc.
Book Set: After your entire payment is received and credited in the ISKCON bank account, the donor or any person authorized by the donor may collect the book set from the temple. There would be an extra charge to send these items to the patron’s address.
Patron Card: You can expect your card to arrive within three months by courier or registered postal services within India. Outside India, extra mailing charge is applicable. Card is not transferable to anyone else. However, a surviving spouse of an expired Life Patron is entitled to free enrollment upon completion of the enrollment process. If later you shift to another location and want to associate yourself with another ISKCON center there then you may contact the enrolling center to have your name added to the other center’s mailing list.
Visiting ISKCON Centers: Please wait for the arrival of your card before contacting other centers for accommodation facility. Then you can directly contact any official ISKCON center and confirm your accommodation through phone or email. You will need to provide your card number and other relevant details pertaining to your accommodation.
