Intergalactic Culture Foundation
(est. 1981)
   The Intergalactic Cultural Foundation was founded in Los Angeles in 1981 by Sri Swami Shyam Paramahansa Mahaprabho, an Indian guru with a mission to the United States. The founda-tion was initially known as the Lovetrance Civili-zation Center, but the name was changed in 1986 to reflect the institute’s new focus. Four sections were created to advise students along specific paths of spiritual aspiration, defined by personal proclivities and strengths: the path of the heart, the path of intellect, the path of action, and the path of reflection.
   The foundation has published prolifically. Its periodicals include Hindu Digest, Golden India, and Enlightenment Connoisseurs Newsletter. Their publications catalog includes over 100 books, as well as correspondence courses, videos, and audio cassettes. Sri Swami Shyam has made speaking and teaching tours across the United States and has created the International Galactic Chronicles lecture series. By 2002, Swami Shyam had pro-duced 2,000 pages of his own commentary on the Srimad Bhagavatam and 1,500 pages of his viewpoints on Yoga Vasistha, Viveka Chudamani, and the UPANISHADS, and 70 audio discourses on the Bhagavat Katha.
   The headquarters of the foundation in the United States is in San Pedro, California. Inter-national headquarters is in Rishikesh, India. A number of electronic books are free.
