When His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami (who later became known as Srila Prabhupada) entered the port of New York City on September 17, 1965, few Americans took notice - but he was not merely another immigrant. He was on a mission to introduce an ancient religion, which originated in India, into mainstream America. Before Srila Prabhupada passed away on November 14, 1977, at the age of 81, his mission proved successful. He had founded the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) and saw it grow into a worldwide confederation of more than 100 temples, ashrams and cultural centers.

Thomas J. Hopkins is Emeritus Professor of Religious Studies at Franklin & Marshall college (Lancaster, PA, USA). He was Director of Academic Affairs at the Oxford Centre for Vaishnava and Hindu Studies for 1998-99. He is the author of The Hindu Religious Tradition and has published numerous articles and encyclopaedia entries on aspects of Indian religious life ranging from the Indus Civilization to modern Bengal Vaisnavism. His special interest in the Vaisnava devotional tradition led to his first meeting with A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami in New York in 1966, which focussed his attention on the newly emerging ISKCON movement and started a long-term study of ISKCON's history and theology.

But some scholars, most notably A.L. Basham (7) and Thomas Hopkins, are of the opinion that Heliodorus was not the only Greek to adopt such principles. Hopkins, chairman of the department of religious studies at Franklin and Marshall College, has said " Heliodorus was presumably not the only foreigner who converted to Vaisnava devotional practices -- although he might have been the only one who erected a column, at least one that is still extant. Certainly there must have been many others. (8)
