Slow and steady wins the race! Only $12,000 $5,221 more is needed to keep alive and vibrant for the next six months. A big THANK YOU to those who've contributed to our Fall Fundraiser so far. If everyone gave a few dollars (say, between five and fifty) we could get rid of this banner and go back to doing what we love most: helping people all over the Internet discover Krishna. If you give $25 or more, we'll email you a gift of the Bhagavad-gita audio book. How about that? Click here to donate.

About Us is a non-profit website all about Krishna, brought to you by the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust (BBT). Our goal is to present information about Krishna relevant to the diverse needs and interests of students, teachers, scholars, spiritual seekers, the Hindu community, devotees and anyone else interested in practical spiritual life.

Behind the screens, you'll find a dedicated team of editors, coders, writers, customer service representatives and live chat volunteers serving you in shifts around the clock. For example, when our US 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 and proceeds from our gift store go to maintain and improve this web experience.

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 any talents or skills you'd like to use in Krishna's service, contact us. Feel free to let us how we’re doing, or to make suggestions or comments about the site.

The Bhaktivedanta Archives was created in 1978, two months after Srila Prabhupada Srila Prabhupada passed away, to preserve his legacy: more than 40 volumes of translated Vedic scriptures, thousands of letters to and from disciples and dignitaries, recorded lectures, conversations, film-footage, and more than 19,000 photos.
