“...and things should not be wasted. This is the first consideration.”

Coming from a timeless tradition of Perceptors of God consiciousness starting from the beginning of creation of this phenomenal worlds, propagated by the first born, the creator of this worlds – “Lord Brahma” through a chain of unbroken succession of Spiriutal Perceptors and Students, His Divine Grace Abhya Caranaravinda Bhakti Vedanta Swami Prabhupada (fondly remembered as Śrila Prabhupāda by his disciples and followers) is an unique spiritual leader of modern times.
Śrila Prabhupāda is the Founder Acarya of the International Society of Krishna Conscioiusness (popularly known as the “Hare Krishna” movement) which is as unique as the Founder himself. The unique contribution of Śrila Prabhupāda is the connection he established between the Krishna Consciousness and all practical of aspects of our daily life including Society, politics, culture, environment.
