After Bhaktivedanta's death, his followers led ISKCON. A new generation of Western converts became regional gurus, while a Governing Body Commission oversaw organizational concerns.
Schisms and Sects
Some Hare Krishna adherents have split with the main organization over the status of the gurus who led the movement after Bhaktivedanta's death.
Missions and Expansion
The most important changes to come to ISKCON have been demographic: the aging of its members and the rise of a second generation. The movement has also spread internationally, though retaining a remarkable theological consistency with the teachings of its founders.
Exploration and Conquest
ISKCON has experienced its share of both persecution and violence. In many cases, Hare Krishna adherents have been the targets of persecution, and in other cases, members of the group itself have engaged in violence.
In recent years ISKCON has attracted a sizable number of Indian Hindus, in some cases outnumbering the original Western converts, thereby transforming ISKCON's demographics and identity.
