Srila Prabhupada, our spiritual master, was born a pure devotee of Lord Krishna, born a liberated soul. His life perfectly exemplified the teachings of the ancient and great spiritual bhakti literature. He is the Acarya of this great Sedona Vedic Cultural Center. Acarya means one who teaches by example, and is a title given to a highly spiritual personality in Vedic culture.


Srila Prabhupada, in the latter ten years of his life, wrote 80 books on the science and phiolosophy of Krishna consciousness: the Bhagavad-gita As It Is, Srimad Bhagavatam, Caitanya Caritamrita, Nectar of Devotion, etc. Full sets of his books are in University libraries throughout the world, and they are appreciated and praised by hundreds of scholars.


Also In those 10 years, he founded 108 Vaishnava temples worldwide, called the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, ISKCON). (The Sedona Center of Vedic Culture, while staying true to the spiritual teachings of this great soul, is not operating under the banner of ISKCON, but is being conducted independently by some of his disciples and followers).



"The increasing numbers of Western readers interested in classical Vedic thought have been done a service by Swami Bhaktivedanta. By bringing us a new and living interpretation of a text already known to many, he has increased our understanding manyfold."

- Dr. Edward C. Dimock, Jr.
  Department of South Asian Languages and Civilization University of Chicago

(Srila Prabhupada passed away from this world in November of 1977).

There is a great poem by a previous acharya named Bhaktivinode Thakur. In that poem he says, "He reasons ill who tell that Vaishnavas die, when thou art living still in sound. For Vaishnavas die to live, and while living, try to spread the holy name around."
