Who We Are, Where We've Been

The Institute for Gaudiya Vaishnavism, is a recognized branch of the Vaishnava religion. It was first invoked by the Supreme Person Lord Krsna to Brahma, (at the beginning of creatiion), who introduced it to his son, Narada Muni, who instructed it to his disciple, Vyasadeva (Veda Vyas) the complier of the Vedic literatures,who instructed it to Madhavacarya, and from there it came down many generations in his line to Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu some 500 years ago.
It has since come down 42 generations to the present day. His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami, brought this Bhakti Movement from India in 1965, His initiated disciple Mahabuddhi dasa founded the Institute in 1990 as a branch of this ongoing spiritual tradition.

The Institute for Gaudiya Vaishnavism is committed to education. They have the first authorized "Vaishnava" College in the United States, Florida Vedic College. They have also made many devotee's for Lord Krsna from their congregational home programs.

Lord Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu

The Institute for Gaudiya Vaishnavism, is coming in the line of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. This school is called Gaudiya Vaishnavism, and it represents the highest pinnacle of Bhakti-yoga practice. The development of Pure Love of God (Krsna). This was taught by Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu to his followers the six goswami's of Vrindaban, and has been carefully handed down from Guru to disciple ever since. This science dates back to the beginning of time, when it was spoken to Brahma by Lord Krsna.   This science was first presented to the western world by A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, and is continued today by his siksa disciple Bhaktivedanta Narayan Swami.

Lord Caitanya inaugurated the congregational chanting of the Holy Names of Krsna as the primary method of salvation in this current age of Kali.
