Books

Working and traveling in the 12-year period from early 1966 until late 1977, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami (Srila Prabhupada), ISKCON’s Founder-Acarya, wrote more than 70 books, mostly translations with commentary of Vedic scriptures rendered into English. The publishing arm of ISKCON, The Bhaktivedanta Book Trust (BBT), was established in 1972. The BBT soon became the world’s largest publisher and distributor of books on Indian philosophy and religion.

The BBT, as of January 2009, had printed over 500 million books and magazines in more than 60 languages.
