Who is Srila Prabhupada?

Srila Prabhupada is the founding spiritual master (Acharya) of International Society for Krishna Conciousness (ISKCON). His books (translated from the original Sanskrit) and teachings serve as ISKCON's guiding principles.


He set out from India to teach Bhakti Yoga in the western world. From a small storefront in New York City in 1966, a movement blossomed all over the world. Temples, schools, farms and restaurants developed under his guidance and
direction. In eleven years, he circled the globe fourteen times, met scholars  and statesmen, and inspired men and women from all walks of life to take Krishna Conciousness.


Srila Prabhupada left this world in 1977. He touched the hearts of those he met and left a legacy of spiritual teachings that continue to inspire dedication and devotion throughout the world.
