Krsna consciousness is everywhere because Krsna is everywhere. Krsna is the Supreme Lord, the Personality of Godhead. He lives far away, in the spiritual world, but He also lives within the heart of every living being. Thus no one can be farther from us than Krsna and no one can be closer.

Since everyone is a part of Krsna, everyone has a relationship with Krsna. Just as one's hand is part of one's body and is therefore meant to serve the whole body, every living being is part of Krsna, the Supreme Living Being, and therefore every living being is meant to serve Him.

The purpose of the Krsna consciousness movement it to revive our awareness of this eternal relationship with Krsna. Krsna consciousness is the natural, joyful consciousness that lies dormant within us all. To return to this pure consciousness is the purpose of human life.

His Divine Grace A.C. BhaktiVedanta Swami Prabhupada has established more than eighty centers of Krsna consciousness around the world. In these centers, Srila Prabhupada's disciples learn and teach others the techniques for becoming Krsna conscious, as taught in ancient Vedic scriptures such as Bhagavad-gita and Srimad-Bhagavatam. The most important of these techniques is the chanting of the holy names of God, as found in the mantra Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare.

We invite you to learn more about Krsna and our relationship with Him by chanting the Hare Krsna mantra and by reading Back to Godhead, which explains the Krsna conscious philosophy and tells about the Hare Krsna movement. We also invite you to visit one of the Krsna consciousness centers- anywhere in the world-and thus come closer to Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
