Since Pretoria was seen to be a conservative city, the strategy was to target the young students of the University of Pretoria with the hope that they would be more open-minded towards Krishna Conscious philosophy. The focus was therefore more on philosophy, harinama, and prasadam and less on deity worship. Today the center hosts a Sunday Love Feast Program and supports the university Bhakti Yoga Society (BYS). The vision is to expand the center to be a training center for the spiritual and material development of young Africans.
