Corporate ISKCON, Part 8

BY: SUN STAFF


Apr 22, CANADA (SUN) — A systematic review of ISKCON-related corporations and projects.


Today we continue to follow a branch from yesterday's map, beginning with New Varshana Homeowners Association, Inc., which is connected to Satvatove Institute, Inc. by its director, Serene Syer. There are numerous food related entities in this map, and a cluster of corporations owned and operated by the family of Naveen Krishna dasa (Naveen Khurana), who we note as a 'keystone' personality.

Yesterday we suggested ways in which this data could be used to effect change in ISKCON change that stems from a problem that needs to be solved. Of course, that's just one of countless ways we can derive benefit from the data. For example, as illustrated by the various food and grocery companies seen in Cluster #8, a lot can be learned about areas of interest in business or fields of preaching activity that a particular devotee might have. When common ground is identified, we have an opportunity to create alliances with others who have similar interests and goals.

Likewise, as we identify persons of influence what we call 'keystone' individuals we can see where there may be an abundance of resources, and this can help shape temple fund-raising efforts.

As previously mentioned, we find it quite interesting to note how corporations that are no longer active are connected to others that are active today. In the brief descriptions of the corporate entities, we give the dates of incorporation and the type of entity being incorporated. Certain inferences can be drawn from these dates.

For example, one entity may have gone inactive at around the time a new corporation was formed, perhaps having all the same directors and a different company name, or having a similar name and new directors. If we're interested in the operations of a particular group, seeing the progression of their changing board members can be helpful.

In the case of Natural Food Services, Inc., we have the example of an inactive corporation that is also flagged as a keystone entity because of its inter-connectedness with other organizations. In other words, the relationships between the principals may be important regardless of the fact the corporation has gone inactive.

A few devotees have written to ask why it is that there are so many corporations for preaching projects. Why is all the formal structure necessary? For those incorporated as non-profits, one of the obvious benefits is that this qualifies them to file for 501(c)3 status as a charitable organization. It would be interesting to discover how many non-profit preaching organizations haven't bothered to become 501(c)3. This would also tell us something about the nature of the corporation and its activities.

Likewise, preaching projects that have incorporated as for-profits must obviously have a reason for doing so. How such an entity describes itself as a preaching entity, how it solicits donations, and how it uses its profits will also be of interest.
