Hare Krishna Movement Founded in 1966 by His Divine Grace A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) carries on a great ancient tradition rooted in the Bhagavad Gita, the teachings Lord Krishna spoke five millennia ago. The Gita and other vedic scriptures declare Lord Krishna to be the original Person, God Himself, who appears periodically in this world to liberate all living beings.

Only 500 years ago, Krishna descended as Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu to teach the most sublime and effective means of meditation for the present day: the Chanting of the names of God, especially as found in the Hare Krishna Mantra.

Today members of ISKCON continue Lord Caitanya's movement by distributing the teachings of Lord Krishna and the Hare Krishna Mantra all over the world.
