Here is a small background of the organisation. On July 11, 1966, Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada officially registered the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON).

In the 11 years that followed, he circled the globe 14 times on lecture tours, bringing the teachings of Lord Krishna to thousands of people on 6 continents.

Men and women from all backgrounds and walks of life came forward to accept his message, and with their help, Srila Prabhupada established ISKCON centers and projects throughout the world.
