WELCOMING YOU HOME
We serve the world by sharing the spiritual wisdom found in the ancient Vedic literatures, such as Bhagavad-Gita and Shrimad-Bhagavatam, through the practice of Krishna-bhakti (bhakti-yoga) or devotion to God, Krishna.
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada (1896-1977) is the Founder-Acharya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) and the world’s foremost teacher of Krishna Bhakti, or Bhakti-Yoga, in the 20th century.
“Krishna consciousness means God consciousness. Jesus, or anyone who speaks about God, is in Krishna consciousness. But one must know the science, and within that science there are degrees of knowledge.”
The word “yoga” comes from the Sanskrit root Yuj which means to link with, or combine. Bhakti-yoga means to connect to the Supreme by means of loving devotional service.
