About Srila Prabhupada

Srila Prabhupada came to New York in 1965 at the age of sixty-nine years to introduce “India’s message of peace and goodwill.” In twelve short years he made the chanting of ‘Hare Krishna’ known throughout the world. He started a spiritual revolution wherein devotion, simplicity and compassion became the guiding principles for a meaningful living. Coming from a lineage of self-realized teachers, Srila Prabhupada gave a fearless exposition of devotional wisdom which had been kept locked within India for centuries.
