Srila Prabhupada is the greatest ambassador of India’s spiritual culture and heritage in the modern era. He single-handedly brought the Vedic philosophy of devotion and love towards God to the West for the first time and successfully initiated thousands of young westerners into the devotion of Lord Krishna. In 1966, at the advanced age of 70, he founded ISKCON to give human society an opportunity for a life of happiness, good health, peace of mind and all good qualities through God-consciousness. In a short span of 12 years that followed, he established over 100 Krishna temples around the world and authored over 60 volumes of bhakti literature based on Bhagavad Gita and Srimad Bhagavatam. He travelled the globe 14 times to preach the ideal of Vasudaiva Kutumbakam – The world is one family.
