The International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), also known as the Hare Krishna movement  was founded in 1966 in New York City by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada (Below).DSC05705

The objective of this organisation is to make Lord Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s sankirtan movement available to every town and village. Sri Caitanya, whom devotees recognize as a direct incarnation of Krishna, gave a powerful impetus for a massive bhakti (devotional) movement throughout India.
ISKCON KOLKATA

Kolkata Centre is located at 3C, Albert Road, Minto Park, Kolkata 700017

ISKCON follows the teachings of the Vedas and the Vedic scriptures, including Bhagavad-gita and the Bhagavata Purana; it teaches and practices Vaishnavism, or devotion to God in the supreme personal aspect of Radha Krishna.

ISKCON embraces the chanting of the holy name of Krishna as a primary practice and accepts the concepts of transmigration, karma, vegetarianism (ahimsa), worship of the deity (Shri Vigraha), and the preceptor-disciple (guru-shishya) relationship. Initiated members vow to refrain from gambling, illicit sex, intoxicants (including coffee, tea, and cigarettes), and non vegetarian food.

In this way ISKCON faithfully continues the core traditions of the Hindu faith. ISKCON’s teachings are not limited to any particular historical religion. Vaishnavism inculcates the essential and universal principle of all religion. That principle, called sanatana dharma, denotes the natural and eternal activity of all living beings, loving devotional service to the one Supreme Personality of Godhead.
