This work, Śrīla Prabhupāda: The Founder-Ācāryaof ISKCON, authored by Ravīndra Svarūpa Dāsa, is officially endorsed byISKCON’s Governing Body Commission (GBC).

The GBC requests all devotees and friends of ISKCON to give deep and careful attention to this work. To do so will
broaden our collective understanding of, and appreciation for, the position of Śrīla Prabhupāda and his unique role in the International Society for Krishna Consciousness.

In  this  regard,  the  strategic  planning  team  was  acutely aware that the near future would confront ISKCON with a critical  challenge:  the  unavoidable  transition  to  a  time  when all  devotees  with  direct  experience  of  its  Founder-Ācārya are gone.  This  imminent  loss  became  an  additional  incentive  for the work of the Śrīla Prabhupāda’s Position Committee (SPPC). All  its  members  understood  that  Śrīla  Prabhupāda  should  be no less a presence to subsequent generations than he has been to  the  first.  (Indeed,  some  believed,  he  could  be  even  more.) How to facilitate this? How to foster in all devotees in ISKCON, generation after generation, an ever-increasing awareness of their deep connection with its Founder-Ācārya, so that all encounter him as a living presence in their lives? How will his mission, his teachings, his vision, his determination, his mercy, become one with each and every beating heart?
