ISKCON Worldwide  
In the sixteenth century Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu said that in the future Krishna consciousness would be spread across the globe. For most of the centuries since then that has seemed a highly unlikely idea.

However, since Srila Prabhupada, in direct disciplic succession from Sri Caitanya, founded the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) it has grown to include 300 temples, 40 rural communities, and 80 restaurants in 71 countries.

ISKCON is a non-sectarian organisationPeople worldwide are given the opportunity to pursue spiritual life according to their abilities and can pursue Krishna conscious culture within their own culture and in their own language.

ISKCON centres can cover a wide range of activities from temple worship to preaching, book distribution, farming, free food distribution, restaurants, education, and more. There is plenty of scope in the types of activities that can be offered as service to Krishna, God.

ISKCON centres are autonomous bodies that place themselves under the authority of ISKCON's Governing Body Commision (GBC). Centres are affiliated with ISKCON by adhering to certain standards and accepting the teachings of Srila Prabhupada as their basis. Click here to find your nearest centre.
