Hare Krishna all,
All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
I observed that the majority of ISKCON community is composed of three kind of people.
1. Rich people
2. Highly educated
Rich people- Who have enjoyed all the materialistic pleasures that life has to offer or born rich who are fed up with their own lifestyle and took up spiritual path in search of peace.
Highly educated- These people want to learn more and more. They want to educate themselves to an extent of answering all the questions related to our existence. They have lot of patience and not many material desires and last but not least most of this kind of people have less responsibilities.
Westners - Most of them are not highly educated nor rich but still good at peoples management. They usually don't have any family or any responsibilities. Their requirements are minimum and
they have passion and desire to explore the nature and faith. They have sufficient time to experiment in life and enough money to survive. They can easily attract people with their charm and especially Indians for whom they are like someone who are directly descended from the heaven.
Apart from these people, I don't see many middle class or low class active population in ISKCON. Even if they come to ISKCON they wont stay for long due to many reasons like Family problems, Financial issues etc. It is hard to bring this middle class into ISKCON and make them believe KC philosophy. I am from the middle class and most of the people from our class live with the notion that we already made many compromises in life and its bit hard to accommodate more of it. Some how I got attracted to ISKCON and took that one extra step. I am trying to make everyone Krishna consciousness but they are happy with their system of devotion and don't want to take up KC. Now, I am talking about my own family. I think I need to develop more faith first before convincing others. Anyhow, to what extent birth of a person plays an important role to achieve perfection of life. Like people from certain faith say " We are the chosen one" do we have similar statement in ISKCON?
