His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada is the founder Acharya of ISKCON. He travelled to New York in 1965 at the age of 69, to spread the teachings of Lord Chaitanya. On 11th July 1966, he established the ISKCON or International Society for Krishna Consciousness formally. In the next 11 years, he circled the entire world around 14 times. He conveyed the teaching of Lord Krishna to countless people in 6 different continents. Srila Prabhupada—as he’s known to his followers—translated and commented on over eighty volumes of the Vedas’ most important sacred bhakti texts, including the Bhagavad-gita and the multi-volume Srimad-Bhagavatam—an encyclopedic account of Krishna’s many incarnations and devotees in the history of the universe.
Inspired by the timeless wisdom of life and its inevitable phenomena, H.H. Bhakti Vinoda Swami, a globe-trotting monk, realist and life hacker, has inspired countless people from all walks of life into thinking on a higher dimension and instilled in them, habits that have been instrumental in bringing about the development of veritable human beings. He is a contemporary theologian par excellence – a striking amalgam of philosophical knowledge and spiritual practice.
With a view to kindling in everyone, a distinctive thirst to rise above the mundane and to tap into one’s true inner potential nonpareil, bringing about that “elusive” happiness, and eternal reality that everyone craves for, His Holiness exhorts millions of people with an extensive repertoire of inspiring discourses, scholastic Bhagavad Gita sessions, seminars, conferences, and interactive talk shows.
