Welcome to the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, also known as the ISKCON. Our journey began in 1966 with just two rooms in a storefront in New York City, and has since grown to become a global community with over 700 centers around the world.
We are proud to have distributed over 560 million books and literature, which share the wisdom and teachings of the Bhagavad Gita and other sacred texts. Our mission is to spread the message of love, peace, and spiritual harmony to people of all cultures and backgrounds.
In addition to our spiritual pursuits, we also prioritize ecological sustainability and have established over 65 eco-farms worldwide. These farms serve as models for sustainable living and emphasize the importance of respecting and preserving our planet.
We also operate 110 vegetarian restaurants, which provide delicious and healthy plant-based meals to our members and the public. Our restaurants prioritize locally-sourced and organic ingredients, and offer a range of international cuisine.
Join us in our journey towards spiritual growth, sustainability, and compassionate living. Explore our centers, literature, farms, and restaurants to learn more about the our movement and how you can get involved.
As parts and parcels of the Supreme Lord, it is our nature to be happy (ananda mayo ‘bhyasat). However, due to our material conditioning and the influence of Maya (illusion), we may forget our true nature and our relationship with the Supreme Lord, and struggle in this world like a lost son of a billionaire or a fish out of water. But we can find true happiness by reconnecting with the Supreme Lord.
Krishna, the Supreme Lord, who resides in the spiritual world of Goloka Vrindavan, descends to this world to perform enchanting pastimes and give us a chance to return to our original home. By connecting with Him and following His teachings, we can experience true happiness and fulfillment in our lives. At ISKCON Gurugram, we strive to share the timeless teachings of Lord Krishna, which have been passed down through the disciplic succession, and can help people reconnect with Him. Let us remember our true nature as parts and parcels of the Supreme Lord and take steps towards reconnection with Him.
