Description

The International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) is a branch of the monotheistic Gaudiya Vaishnava tradition within Hinduism dating back 5000 years to Lord Krishna Himself. ISKCON was established in the West in 1966 by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada (Srila Prabhupada) and has since developed into a worldwide confederation of over 500 temples, centers, communities, schools, and restaurants with some 250,000 devotees. The mission of this nonsectarian, monotheistic movement is to promote the well-being of society by teaching the science of Krishna consciousness according to Bhagavad-gita and other ancient scriptures.

The Boston branch of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, now known as New Gundica, was one of the most prominent temples in the early years of the Hare Krishna movement. Srila Prabhupada set a number of milestones here, distinguishing the Boston yatra's position as a significant center for the development of Lord Caitanya’s Sankirtana Movement in the West. It was on Boston’s Commonwealth Pier that Srila Prabhupada first set his lotus feet on Western soil in 1965, and it was there that he composed his prayer Markine Bhagavat Dharma, entreating Lord Krishna for the deliverance of the western countries. It was in Boston that Srila Prabhupada performed the first Brahmanical initiations not just in ISKCON, but for western men and women. It was also in Boston that Prabhupada established his original printing press for distributing transcendental literature, and instituted the worship of one of very few Deity forms of Sri Sri Radha Krishna that he personally installed. Today ISKCON Boston is committed to providing inspiration and spiritual strength to its residents and congregational members. The devotees of New Gundica Dhama seek to fulfill their small part of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's mission to spread Krishna consciousness throughout the greater Boston area.
