Srila Prabhupada, also known as A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami, was the founder of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), an offshoot of Hinduism that rejects materialism and teaches devotion to Krishna. Born and raised in India, Srila Prabhupada began a career of preaching and publishing in the 1940s, with his magazine Back to Godhead. In 1965 he went to New York City and a year later founded the Hare Krishna movement. By the time of his death in 1977, he had translated and commented on dozens of sacred texts and written several books, including Bhagavad-gita As It Is, and the Hare Krishnas had grown to include thousands of members across the world.
