Some recurring features include lectures by Srila Prabhupada, tours of Indian holy places, interviews with Hare Krishna devotees, Krishna conscious perspectives on issues of the day, excerpts from Vedic scriptures, and tips on practicing spiritual life in the modern age

“We should always keep Krishna within our minds, for Krishna is like the sun. Where there is Krishna, Maya or ignorance cannot exist. This is the motto of our Back to Godhead magazine.”
