ISKCON is a part of the broader Gaudiya Vaishnavism movement, which was started in Bengal almost 500 years ago by Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. He preached a personal form of devotion known as Bhakti through chanting the name of Lord Krishna and dancing to music, known as sankirtana.
Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s movement had a deep impact on the caste system of that time. He brought together people of different castes and creeds into the fold of Gaudiya Vaishnavism.
Srila Prabhupada popularized the teachings of Gaudiya Vaishnavism in the West in the 1960s. The movement was embraced by the people of the West and today, the International Society for Krishna Consciousness boasts of as many as 600 centers all over the world, dedicated to the propagation of Vedic cultural and spiritual practices.
Gaudiya Vaishnavism believes in the idea of the soul as something that is distinct from the physical body. Unlike the body, which is material and transient, the soul is eternal, immutable, and indestructible. The purpose of the soul is to free itself from the illusion of the material world
ISKCON Preaches this through teachings which help to develop love for Krishna, who is considered to be the source of all incarnations. The relationship between the devotee and Krishna can be achieved through Bhakti-yoga and chanting of his Hare Krishna Mantra: Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna, Krishna, Hare, Hare; Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama, Rama, Hare Hare.

Once started by Srila Prabhupada, it has now grown into a weekly tradition of service and devotion. People can gather and chant the name of Krishna, followed by song, dance, and a vegetarian feast.

“Swami Srila Prabhupada was a genuine holy spiritual person with enormous integrity and compassion, and he had a powerful impact on those who met him. He never claimed authority and respect for himself; what he said and did was always in the name of Krishna…” – Dr. Thomas J. Hopkins
When His Divine Grace, A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada entered the port of New York City on September 17, 1965, few Americans took notice — but he was not merely another immigrant. He was on a mission to introduce an ancient religion, which originated in India, into mainstream America. Before Srila Prabhupada passed away on November 14, 1977, at the age of 81, his mission proved to be successful. He had founded the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), and saw it grow into a worldwide confederation of more than 100 temples, ashrams, and cultural centres.

Those who approve of a man building a temple for Krishna, go to the region of Acyuta [Vishnu], freed from sins. Having desired to build a temple for Hari, a man immediately takes a million of his generations, past and future, to the region of Vishnu.
