Welcome to iskcon.press, an online alternative to VedaBase where you can read and relish His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada’s original teachings.

Our aim is to provide students and followers of His Divine Grace with effective, useful tools for in-depth study and research, including advanced search capabilities, a comprehensive index, Sanskrit-English synonyms dictionary and carefully compiled wiki articles.

Our wiki software of choice is open source, and we intend to open source our contributions as well. We welcome any collaboration in this effort, and will be happy to share our research with others toward a common goal of spreading Krishna consciousness worldwide.

Developed part-time over several years, our website is currently in public preview. Granted, there’s still a few nuts and bolts missing, but we hope to have them all in place before the 50th anniversary of ISKCON Press next year.

Please get in touch with us if you have any questions or comments!

His Divine Grace

A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda

is the present ācārya or teacher by example in the unbroken chain of disciplic succession begun five thousand years ago by Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. He is the founder and spiritual master of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, which now has thousands of members and over ninety centers around the world. Śrīla Prabhupāda came to the United States [fifty-three] years ago under the instruction of his spiritual master, who requested that the ancient knowledge of the Vedic literatures be given to the English speaking world. Thus Śrīla Prabhupāda is now freely distributing this pure transcendental knowledge, which is the real wealth of India, the eternal teaching of man’s relationship to the Supreme.

Kṛṣṇa, the Reservoir of Pleasure, published 1972.
