Our mission is simple: To help devotees find devotee-run businesses
What is a devotee?
A devotee is the common term used in ISKCON to refer to a follower of Krishna (Vishnu).
What is this website?
Devotee Business is a service to help devotees find devotee-run businesses in order to buy products and services, and to help devotee businesspeople promote their businesses, products and services to other devotees.
Who is this website for?
This website is primarily intended for members of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON).
What does this website do for me?
Are you a devotee looking to buy products and services? Have you ever wondered if another devotee – near or far – could offer it? It’s something that crossed our minds too. Devotee Business enables you to find such businesses.
Are you a devotee businessperson? Devotee Business enables you to promote your products and services to other devotees.
I can find products and services anywhere. Why should I buy from devotees?
Good question. We hope you will find that devotee-to-devotee (‘D2D’) trade and commerce is more satisfying than dealing with non-devotees. Honesty, quality, pricing and service may all be better. It’s also helps create livelihoods and spread our movement.
How can I be sure that it’s a devotee running a business that is listed on this website?
Only initiated devotees may list their businesses on Devotee Business. We are building this community based on a trust network. If you find that someone is not playing fair, please let us know and we will try to help.
Why are only initiated devotees allowed to post their businesses?
We have to draw the line somewhere. It’s not to suggest that uninitiated devotees are not bonafide businesspeople. We have limited resources and need a clear and simple criteria that does not involve significant work (and hence costs) on our part. We thought long and hard about what that criteria could be, weighed up the positives and negatives and decided that this is the best available option.
