ISKCON means International society for Krishna consciousness. It was founded by His Divine Grace A.C Bhaktivedanta swami Srila Prabhupada in July 1966. When this society was registered in New York, a friend of Srila Prabhupada suggested that it be named the society for God Consciousness ashe thought that the name, Krishna, was sectarian. But Srila Prabhupada did not accept it. Prabhupada explained “yes God has many names and we cannot hit on any one name but Krishna means “all attractive”. God attracts everyone, that’s why srila prabhupada chose Krishna Consciousness instead of God consciousness.
