Krsna, the Darling of Vrndavana. The infinitely powerful Supreme Personality of Godhead displays this infinitely lovable aspect only to His dearest devotees- those who always think of Him as the ineffably beautiful child told of in the Srimad-Bhagavatam, and who serve Him in a mood of complete selflessness and spontaneous Jove. To others, Krsna reveals Him self in other ways: as a stern lawgiver to the God-fearing worshiper, as unlimited, eternal light to the impersonalist, as cruel death to the atheist. "How one approaches Me determines how I respond to him." declares Krsna in the Bhagavad-gita. And though Krsna is impartial to all . He is ever inviting us to give up our hopeless efforts for happiness in this world of death and to return home, to the spiritual world, and join Him in His eternal pastimes of love.

BACK TO GODHEAD is the monthly journal of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness. When Srila Prabhupada began the Society (in New York City, in 1966), he put into writing the purposes he wanted it to achieve. They are as follows:

1. To systematically propagate spiritual knowledge to society at large and to educate all peoples in the techniques of spiritual life in order to check the imbalance of values in life and to achieve real unity and peace in the world.

2. To propagate a consciousness of Krsna, as it is revealed in Bhagavad-gita and Srimad-Bhagavatam.

3. To bring the members of the Society together with each other and nearer to Krsna, the prime entity, thus developing the idea within the members, and humanity at large, that each soul is part and parcel of the quality of Godhead (Krsna).

4. To teach and encourage the sankirtana movement, congregational chanting of the holy names of God, as revealed in the teachings of Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.

5. To erect for the members and for society at large a holy place of transcendental pastimes dedicated to the personality of Krsna.

6. To bring the members closer together for the purpose of teaching a simpler, more natural way of life.

7. With a view toward achieving the aforementioned purposes, to publish and distribute periodicals, books, and other writings.
