Today is the anniversary of ISKCON’s incorporation in 1966. A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the founder of ISKCON, was a spiritual disruptor of the highest calibre. In 1966, at the age of 69, homeless, penniless and alone, he arrived in the Lower East Side of New York, searching for ‘better opportunities’ to share the message of the Gita. This was Skid row; the lowest of the low. Here he lived, worshiped, studied and taught. Every evening, his decrepit residence, the rat-ridden 94 Bowery, would fill up with buzzing acidheads, bearded bohemians, ruined alcoholics and disillusioned dropouts. Sex, music, LSD and consciousness expansion; that’s what made them tick. The Swami would nonchalantly step into the makeshift ‘temple’ and take his seat at the front, face-to-face with these confused souls who were looking for real love, real happiness and real spiritual experience.
