1. WHO WE ARE
Krishna Marriage is an advisory team of devotees who facilitate introductions for ISKCON devotees for the purposes of marriage and can offer support, guidance and training (both pre and post marriage) as required.
2. HOW WE WORK
TYPES OF SERVICES OFFERED
We encourage members to consult parents/guardians/spiritual master/mentors before meeting with any potential partners. If you do not have such authorities available to guide you, then we also offer a more tailored service where you can choose one of our matchmakers as a guide.
You will be asked on the registration form which route you would prefer to take:
The broad route is recommended for those who have their own parents/guardians/spiritual master/mentors who are able to assist them in choosing a suitable match. Profiles will be sent to relevant parties to review with the candidate. The broad route is also available for mature devotees who prefer to make their own choices independently, in which case profiles will be sent directly to the candidate.
With the tailored route you may select one of our team of matchmakers to help you to make your selection and guide you through the process. The matchmaker will normally make contact with you within 2 weeks of receiving your details, and will discuss with you your preferences and any specific considerations. They will get to know you as the process continues and can tailor any specific requirements you may have.
You may change which you route you wish to use at anytime by emailing: email@example.com
You may of course increase your chances of finding a partner by registering with other systems. However, so that we can effectively serve you, please keep us informed of any introductions made by other parties at all times.
The final decision is always down to the individual and the Marriage Team cannot be held responsible for the overall outcome of any introduction made.
3. ELIGIBILITY FOR USING THIS SERVICE
Membership is open to those who are single, divorced, or widowed; affiliated with ISKCON; chanting the Hare Krishna mantra on beads daily; and preferably following the 4 regulative principles, i.e. vegetarian, no intoxication, no gambling, and no illicit sex. At least one should be vegetarian and striving to following all the principles. For references, one should be able to provide names and email addresses of 2 referees who hold positions of responsibility within a recognised ISKCON centre, temple, nama hatta or equivalent.
The majority of our database made up of devotees from the UK and many of them do not want to relocate. So if you are registering from abroad please be aware that the options we may have for you will be limited. However we will try to serve you as best as we can.
4. CRITERIA USED FOR MATCHING
We endeavour to make every effort to ensure that only suitable members are introduced to each other, based on the information provided. We will initially select suitable members based on the essential criteria that you have selected on the form. Further selection will depend on which route you decide to take.
5. FEES CHARGED
Some matchmakers may charge a nominal amount for their service. For any information regarding fees, please look under each individual team member/matchmaker profile.
6. CONTACTING US
All contact with us can be made by email - firstname.lastname@example.org. The services can only start once a completed application form is received from the applicant and references have been checked.
Your details may change over time and so it is your responsibility to inform us of changes and thus keep our records up to date. You may re-submit the registration form at any time if you wish to update your preferences, etc.
7. CONFIDENTIALITY AND ACCURACY OF INFORMATION
We undertake to make it our topmost priority to protect the member’s confidentiality at all times. By joining Krishna Marriage, you are giving consent to your details being seen by administrators, matchmakers on our team and potential matches.
The lists of names and addresses of clients will remain our property and will not be sold, lent, hired, or used for any purpose other than as part of this introduction service, without your permission.
We will ensure that applicants are removed from our lists as soon as they request to do so.
We insist that any information shared with you will be kept confidential and not shared with any other parties. In this regard, please do not discuss any matches sent to you with anyone other than the authorities whom you have chosen to guide you, and please request that they maintain full confidentiality of all parties as well.
We only supply details that have been provided to us in good faith. Although we do check references, we also advise members to verify the details themselves. We are unable to accept responsibility for the accuracy of the information given to us.
