The early years of ISKCON were times of intense activity under the guidance of ISKCON’s founder, His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Srila Prabhupada actively embraced twentieth-century technology to broadcast his message, ensuring an enormous legacy of photographs, writings, sound and video recordings, and other materials. Within the whirlwind that was ISKCON in its early days, there was a danger that some of this valuable material would be lost. The Bhaktivedanta Archives, which this year marks its 25(th) anniversary, is charged with the task of collecting, restoring, and maintaining material from this time. In this article, Ranjit Dasa outlines the history of the Bhaktivedanta Archives, examines the challenges facing the Archives, and the strategies adopted to meet these challenges.
