What is Krishna conscious movement ?

The Hare Krishna movement,(Krishna conscious movement) a  Gaudiya Vaishnavism sect of hinduism  was started in the 16th century by Sri Chaitanya  Mahaprabhu of Bengal (1486-1533). He emphasized the worship of Krishna and believed that chanting the names of God was so powerful that in addition to one's own meditation on them, they should also be chanted in the streets for the benefit of all.

Swami Prabhupada brought the movement — called the International Society of Krishna Consciousness — to the U.S. in 1966. 

When it spread to England, it gained publicity, Since then, ISKCON has established more than 800 centers all over the world and has millions of followers.

Key to the spread of Gaudiya Vaishnava theology in the Western world were Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada's extensive writings and translations. These works are now available in more than seventy languages and serve as great philosophical masterpiece worldwide.
