It is the purpose of Back to Godhead to present the transcendental standard of spiritual culture which is achieved when one revives his eternal relationship with Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Through singing, dancing, feasting. art, literature, science and philosophy—all inspired by the realization that the Supreme Lord is Krsna, the all-attractive Supreme Person, and that all living beings are His eternal parts and parcels—the Krsna consciousness movement is introducing a simple, practical and authorized method for the respiritualization of human society. The last few decades have witnessed wonderful progress in the fields of science, education, technology and economic development, but these progressive achievements will all be nullified unless they are accompanied by similar advancements in the spiritual field. The responsible leaders of human society should therefore seriously take it upon themselves to learn the science of Krsna consciousness in order to give society proper guidance and direction not only materially but spiritually as well. To be truly progressive, humanity must be not only materially prosperous but spiritually peaceful, joyful and enlightened. Through the chanting of the Hare Krsna mantra—the holy names of God most recommended for spiritual realization in this age—and through the philosophical ideas of the Vedic culture, as presented in the pages of Back to Godhead, humanity can be reawakened to its divine nature, and these transcendental goals can become a tangible reality.
