Our Founder Acarya

Srila Prabhupada

When the western world was devoid of truth and spiritual knowledge, there was a scarcity of the divine nature that teaches us who we are, why were here and what our ultimate goal is to be.
Therefore, all glories to Srila Prabhupada for bringing this knowledge to us when we needed it most.


How It Began

The International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), was founded by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda in New York City in 1966.  Srila Prabhupada, has drawn appreciation from scholars and religious leaders alike for his remarkable achievement in presenting India’s Vaishnava spiritual culture in a relevant manner to contemporary Western and worldwide audiences.

ISKCON belongs to the Gaudiya-Vaishnava sampradāya, a monotheistic tradition within the Hindu culture. It is based on the Sanskrit texts Bhagavad-gītā and the Bhagavat Purana, or Srimad Bhagavatam. These are the historic texts of the devotional bhakti yoga tradition.  These teach that the ultimate goal for all living beings is to reawaken their love for God, or Lord Krishna, the “all-attractive one”.
