What is ISKCON Purposes of ISKCON 8 Points of K.C

History of ISKCON:

The International Society for Krishna Consciousness(ISKCON) is a world wide cultural and educational movement teaching the science of Krishna Consciousness as taught in India's ancient Vedic literatures, specifically the Bhagavad-Gita and the Srimad Bhagavatam.


The society was founded in 1966 by his Divine Grace A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the current acharya of the Brahma Madhava-Gaudiya school started thousands of years ago by Lord Krishna. ISKCON is registered with the Government of India under the Societies Registration Act No. xx1 of 1860.

It is the embodiment today of Lord Krishna's teachings in the Gita as partially explained by Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu five hundred years ago. As registered with the Government the main objects of the society are, very briefly:

“To advance, transmit and spread the ethical and philosophical principles of Krishna Consciousness as revealed in the teachings of Bhagavad-Gita and Srimad Bhagavatam and doctrines and the observances which serve to promote and manifest the said ethical and philosophical principles in the furtherance of this subject”.

“To print, publish, sell or if thought fit, to distribute gratuitously books, booklets, leaflets, newspapers, magazines, or other periodicals for the purpose of giving information to the work of the society”.

“To build or to assist in building temples, schools, colleges, hospitals or other buildings in connection with or for the advancement of the objects of the society”.


Over the years ISKCON has steadily grown in popularity and influence and today it is widely recognized by scholars, government officials and laymen as an important expression of genuine Indian culture all over the world.

This is because ISKCON has established numerous programmes for social and spiritual upliftment exactly according to Vedic principles and the devotees of ISKCON strictly follow the baktiyoga system as practiced in India for centuries. Further, the spiritual master and founder of ISKCON, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanata Swami Prabhupada, as the world's most active writer and teacher of Vedic thought and civilization, is the leading cultural ambassador of our true Indian Heritage.
