ISKCON Austria - video gallery
The history of ISKCON Austria, Vienna in this, supposedly the third richest country in the world, is a never ending story of failures, blackouts and flops. ISKCON completely closed down its only center in Vienna between 1996 and 2002. Now Prithu Prabhu has been named GBC and has opened a Govinda incense-store and rented a substandard apartment to serve as a temple.
Austria has heavy laws against selling books in public; it is also difficult to get official recognition as religion. Prithu Prabhu came here with a number of very young disciples from other countries. The temple president is only about 20.
