Iskcon Youth Program

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, Founder- Acarya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness {ISKCON}, had a deep desire to educate the youth of India as well as whole world in the science of Krishna Consciousness. He would often say to the Indian students whom he met at foreign universities, that it was the prime duty of Indian’s to learn the science of devotional service and spread it all over the world. This also was the instruction of Lord Caitanya, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who appeared in the fifteenth century in Bengal. And to fulfill Srila Prabhupada’s desire, this endeavor to spiritually train youth, began in ISKCON-Rajahmundry as well as all over India. ISKCON Youth Forum {I.Y.F} since then, grew from strength to strength; more and more universities and college students, professionals began joining either as resident devotees committed to Vedic studies or as congregational members. Today, IYF has over 1 million members through nation wide in INDIA.
