About ISKCON Press

The original ISKCON Press was inaugurated by Śrīla Prabhupāda in 1969, calling it “the heart of ISKCON.” It was superseded a few years later by The Bhaktivedanta Book Trust (BBT), which went on to publish and distribute millions of book copies worldwide. However, after the disappearance of His Divine Grace in 1977, BBT started revising his books, most notably Bhagavad-gītā As It Is and KṚṢṆA, The Supreme Personality of Godhead, making numerous unnecessary changes.

Say what you may about the book changes, but for books that are meant to be “the law books for the next 10,000 years,” we feel it is imperative to have historically accurate and authorised versions available to serious students and followers of His Divine Grace. Thus we have reestablished ISKCON Press as an independent online entity, with the aim of facilitating deeper study and better understanding of Śrīla Prabhupāda’s teachings, for the upliftment of humanity at large.
