From humble beginnings, His Divine Grace spread the teachings of Gaudiya Vaishnavism around the world and introduced the Hare Krishna mantra and the teachings of Lord Chaitanya to many thousands of people. Our deepest gratitude to Srila Prabhupada, our life and soul, who made the long and difficult journey some 50 years ago to bring us the message of the Bhagavad Gita and beautiful holy names of Krishna.
