(The study of past events)
The beginning of a great spiritual journey

Lord Krishna Playing FluteInternational Bhakti Organization of Krishna (IBOK) is a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit organization, established in 2008 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. IBOK established its geographic expansion and popularization only through the devotional services of Bhakti Yoga. The Minnesota branch is the first branch of IBOK but in the near future other branches of IBOK will be located in many other states and other countries including India.

IBOK is a new vaishnava bhakti movement and its main goal is to build a history related to Hinduism and its beliefs and practices. In the Srimad-Bhagavatam and the Vishnu Purana (two great Hindu sacred texts) it is told that there are nine forms of bhakti. Though IBOK describe and conduct most of the activities of bhakti yoga but specifically start and promotes the first activity of Sravana Bhakti (which means hearing of God's virtues, glories, sports and stories connected with His divine Name and Form) direct from Srimad-Bhagavatam. IROI is only dedicated (as first and last deity) to our supreme lord, named Lord Krishna (join activity of Sravana Bhakti of Shri Krishna Lilas on Sunday Afternoon Satsang Activities).

IBOK is not typically a temple related organization but its a religious and educational organization and established to offer specifically bhakti related services and the knowledge of Hinduism to all of its audiences on all levels with a significant meaning. The branches of IBOK are also called The International Prayer Centers of IBOK. These prayer centers (each center includes all parts of IBOK facilities) are full of beautiful colored images (icons) of Radha-Krishna and other unique architecture works (IBOK Architecture History). These images are specially created for worshipping purposes, and also to focus on seeing Lord Krishna (Lord Krishna with his consort Shrimati Radharani) as Lila Avatar (divine play of Lord Krishna) to give a significant meaning of His divine play to His devotees.
