ISKCON Founder Acarya

His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami PrabhupadaISKCON's founder Acarya (leader) is His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada who appeared in 1896 in Calcutta, India.

He first met his spiritual master, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Gosvami, in Calcutta in 1922.

Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati, a prominent devotional scholar and the founder of sixty-four branches of Gaudiya Mathas (Vedic institutes), liked this educated young man and convinced him to dedicate his life to teaching Vedic knowledge in the Western world.

Srila Prabhupada became his student, and eleven years later (1933) at Allahabad, he became his formally initiated disciple.

Srila Prabhupada left us a veritable library of Vedic philosophy and culture. Highly respected by scholars for their authority, depth, and clarity, his books are used at colleges and universities around the world.

The Bhaktivedanta Book Trust publishes his works in over 50 languages.

The following institutions provide educational opportunities for people of all ages interested in systematically studying the philosophy of Krishna consciousness. Some offer degrees.
