Education

Srila Prabhupada translated over 50 volumes of Vedic literature which he designated as the “lawbooks” of ISKCON and of society as a whole. He emphasised the need for high standard Vaishnava education so that devotees could be trained as the spiritual leaders of society.

Srila Prabhupada established ISKCON’s first Vedic primary school or gurukul in 1972 in Dallas so that devotee children could be trained as brahmanas. Subsequently, devotees have developed many more educational projects - at primary level and much beyond - where Srila Prabhupada’s books are studied in depth.

Many colleges and universities around the world in fact also use Srila Prabhupada’s books as set text books and references.
