Vaishnav Sangh of Queensland is a Not-for- Profit Organisation. It was formed so that all the followers of Vaishnav Sampraday (Pushti-marg) can come under the one roof and perform seva to Thakorji. Pushtimarg is spontaneous, selfless and motiveless love for Shri Krishna. No caste, creed, color, sex or age prevents one from attaining Shri Krishna’s Grace. It does not know any boundaries, be it time, place or anything else. It does not require a devotee to give up a householder’s life. In fact, one can serve Him better, by being a householder. This is different from other philosophies that require a life of contemplation as a monk. All the worldly desires are diverted towards Shri Krishna, they are then not required to be suppressed.
