"This Krishna Conscious Movement is 'trying' to bring back Vedic culture so that people may be happy. It is not a business, it is not a religious sentiment, it is a program to make everyone happy" -SP
Everyone wants to be happy. No one wants to suffer. Because to be happy is our natural original consciousness sat-cit-ananda, eternal, full of knowledge and bliss.
Some of you have not yet, had the unique opportunity to meet the devotees or read the books of Srila Prabhupada. Therefore it is our warm invitation to all of you, kindly take a moment to view our pages, and select a book or two and begin or continue on your path towards self realization.
Bringing Krishna Consciousness to the World
The Hare Krishna Movement or The International Society for Krishna Consciousness was formed in 1966 by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, who came from India on the order of his spiritual master to preach love of God to the people of the West.
Krsna consciousness is experienced as a process of self-purification, through the practice of Bhakti yoga. And since the philosophy of Krsna consciousness is nonsectarian, any man, Hindu or Christian, etc, will become better in his faith by chanting the holy name of God and by hearing Bhagavad-gita "The Song of God". So let everyone rejoice in the sankirtan movement, and may we see the prediction made by Lord Caitanya 500 years ago that the chanting of the holy names of God would be carried to every town and village of the world. Only in this way can real peace prevail. It is sublime and easy. Hare Krsna!

Books are the Basis
The books of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, are the most important contribution of this Krishna consciousness movement. Everything else is superfluous, a by-product of these books. Even the temple and the Deity are secondary. Krishna consciousness, or the spiritual revolution which Srila Prabhupada envisioned, is based upon the publication and distribution of Vedic literature.
Until people have these books in their homes, we cannot expect a significant turn in their lives. The books will act where we cannot. With the printing press, one man's effort can very easily expand a millionfold.
Five thousand years ago, Vyasadeva, the author of the Srimad-Bhagavatam, foresaw the hellish situation of this age in which we live. Therefore he recorded the Srimad-Bhagavatam. Prior to Vyasadeva, the Vedas existed only orally. Vedic knowledge was handed down from spiritual master to disciple. In Lord Chaitanya's time, when there was no printing press, the Srimad-Bhagavatam was written by hand. It was considered a great gift to offer a copy of Srimad-Bhagavatam to a learned scholar, king or gentleman, because it was very difficult to obtain.
We have the facility to reproduce the Srimad-Bhagavatam by the millions with the printing press. Because we are not qualified scholars and are thus unable to translate Vedic literatures, it is obvious that our contribution to our spiritual master, or to the mission of Lord Chaitanya, is to publish what has been given to us by our spiritual master, Srila Prabhupada, and to make a world-wide scheme for advertising, promoting and selling these books to the public.
Srimad-Bhagavatam must be placed in the home of every respectable person in the world. Just as we find the Oxford Dictionary, Encylopaedia Britannica, Shakespeare collection or any other important literary work in a respectable person's home, so also the Srimad-Bhagavatam and all the other books published by Srila Prabhupada must be placed in the homes of people all over the world.
These books are the basis of a Spiritual Revolution
