Founder & Vision

Meet the Founder

The Bhaktivedanta Gurukula and International School was founded by renowned scholar and devotee A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, founder-acharya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON). Srila Prabhupada single-handedly spread Vaisnava/Hindu dharma all over the world, establishing 108 temples and several schools in India and throughout the West. Srila Prabhupada, a highly educated leader, exemplifies the kind of education that BGIS offers and the kind of graduate that BGIS hopes to produce. He was kind, bold, influential, humble, humourous, gentle, balanced, hard-working, respectful, highly spiritual, determined and an excellent communicator - both as a speaker and as a writer. He felt equally at home in an Indian village and in a busy Western metropolis. He could converse meaningfully with a simple worker and a head of state. Business, math, the gentle art of persuasion, philosophy and four languages - he was proficient in it all. He cared deeply for people and touched the hearts of all he met. We at BGIS are awed by his abilities and character, and we hope that this, his school, continues to represent his qualities and pass them on. Which is what we strive towards through our teachers and students. Know more about Srila Prabhupada
