Krishna consciousness is everywhere—it’s not bound by mundane geography. Although you don't always see it, it’s the natural culture of the soul—common to everyone. It used to be common to all parts of this world, but over time, it has become fragmented into many different religions. It is still known and practiced mainly in India - which is mainly where Krishna appears when He incarnates on Earth.

Krishna Himself
One could say that Krishna Himself "started" Krishna consciousness. He came to Vrindavan, India (circa 3200 B.C.) and spoke the Bhagavad-gita—the comprehensive manual for Krishna consciousness.

Chaitanya Mahaprabhu
Krishna came again as Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, to West Bengal, India, at the end of the fifteenth century, to practically demonstrate to the general public how to practice Krishna consciousness.

Srila Prabhupada
The teacher, or acharya responsible for bringing Krishna consciousness out of India at the end of the twentieth century and spreading it all over the world is His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.
