ISKCON started in Latvia in the early eighties. As of April 2006, 11 congregations of Hare Krishna ISKCON are registered in Latvia.[1] In 2005, Hare Krishna gave its membership figures as 127 to the Justice Ministry.[1] ISKCON maintains a temple in Riga and organizes annual festival Ratha Yatra.

Brahma Kumaris have three centres in Latvia: in Riga, Daugavpils, and Rēzekne.[2]
