About Us

BBT Online Ministry Inc. is a website all about Krishna, brought to you by BBT Online Ministry Inc, a non-profit organization with the purpose of sharing the teachings of Lord Krishna on the Internet, and ministering to the diverse needs and interests of students, teachers, scholars, spiritual seekers, the Hindu community, devotees and anyone else interested in practical spiritual life. The information presented on is based on sacred texts including the Bhagavad-gita, Srimad-Bhagavatam, Chaitanya Charitamrita and related Vaishnava scriptures, translated from Sanskrit and Bengali with elaborate commentary by our spiritual master His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the Founder-Acharya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness. We also facilitate the Internet distribution of spiritual literature published by the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust (BBT). Our spiritual principles and precepts are those of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, summarized in seven purposes.

Behind the screens, you'll find a dedicated team of editors, writers, customer service representatives and live chat volunteers serving you in shifts around the clock. For example, when our North American team goes to sleep, volunteers in Europe, India and China awake to continue staffing the live help lines, keeping the stream of Krishna conscious questions and answers flowing.

All donations, as well as proceeds from our affiliated gift store maintain and improve this charitable website.

We would like to thank our growing family of volunteers and well-wishers. Their support, service and donations keep alive and vibrant. If you'd like to join our team, raising consciousness worldwide, consider volunteering your time or giving a donation.

We're always happy to engage more volunteers. If you have talents or skills you'd like to use in Krishna's service, contact us. Feel free to let us know how we’re doing, or to make suggestions or comments about the site.
