ABOUT US

Five hundred years ago Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, the most recent incarnation of Krishna, taught by His own example that one can live the essence of Bhagavad-gita by chanting Krishna’s holy names

Sri Krishna and Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu both taught Bhakti yoga, the spiritual practice of connecting with God through devotional service to Him. Based on Their teachings, in 1966 A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, referred to as Srila Prabhupada, founded the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) in New York City.

Srila Prabhupada and his disciples popularized the chanting of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra in the 1960s and 1970s, and it spread to countries around the globe. Though the International Society for Krishna Consciousness is the legal name for the movement Prabhupada started, most people know it as the Hare Krishna movement.

Hare Krishna Movement is a charitable trust to advance, transmit and spread the ethical and philosophical principles of Krishna Consciousness as revealed in the teachings of Bhagavad Gita and Srimad Bhagavatam and the doctrines and the observances, which serve to promote and manifest the said ethical and philosophical principles taught by His Divine Grace A C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada (Srila Prabhupada)

Our Objective

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada incorporated the International Society for Krishna Consciousness in 1966 with seven explicit purposes
  1. To systematically propagate spiritual knowledge to society at large and to educate all people in the techniques of spiritual life in order to check the imbalance of values in life and to achieve real unity and peace in the world
  2. To propagate a consciousness of Krishna (God), as it is revealed in the great scriptures of India, Bhagavad-gita and Srimad-Bhagavatam
  3. To bring the members of the Society together with each other and nearer to Krishna, the prime entity, thus developing the idea within the members, and humanity at large, that each soul is part and parcel of the quality of Godhead (Krishna)
  4. To teach and encourage the sankirtana movement, congregational chanting of the holy name of God, as revealed in the teachings of Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu
  5. To erect for the members and for society at large a holy place of transcendental pastimes dedicated to the personality of Krishna
  6. To bring the members closer together for the purpose of teaching a simpler, more natural way of life
  7. With a view towards achieving the aforementioned purposes, to publish and distribute periodicals, magazines, books and other writings

Serving the mission of Srila Prabhupada is the only objective of Hare Krishna Movement Visakhaptnam.

Our Mission

Spread physical, emotional, social and spiritual happiness through God consciousness.
