Incepted in the year 1987, the institute aims at Krishna Iskcon consciousness
culture to larger sections of society and future generations. The
educational institute provides an oppurtunity to study Vedic literature,
specifically translated by Srila Prabhupada. Established after the death of
Srila Prabhupada, in order to fulfil his desire of having an institute at
Vrindavan that would train people in the Krishna consciousness movement through Radha Krishna temple and
give them a thorough understanding on the subject so that they would go out
and preach to the world.

atmosphere conducive to realization of the Supreme Being, Lord Krishna or Hare Krsna as they say.
