Hare Krishna Temple – Brooklyn New York Sri Sri Radha Govinda Mandir
Founder Acharya: His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
Krishna who is known as Govinda, is the Supreme Godhead. He has an eternal blissful spiritual body. He is the origin of all. He has no other origin and He is the prime cause of all causes. – Sri Brahma Samhita 5.1
The International Society For Krishna Consciousness, a worldwide spiritual confederation of temples, ashrams and communities, was founded in New York City in 1966 by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.
Sri Sri Radha Govinda are uniquely special Deities with a rich history, with whom the devotees have fallen more and more deeply in love with, with each passing year. Their beautiful Lordships were given to Srila Prabhupada by the Maharani of Jaipur, Gayatri Devi, and after personally worshiping Them, Srila Prabhupada directed the deities to be sent to New York to be worshiped by the devotees here. Since February of 1972 many countless thousands of devotees have worshiped the sacred deities over the last 40 years.
