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”.
