By His Example 2nd Edition

By His Example

My dear friend and Godbrother, Sriman Gurudas Prabhu, has just sent me a box of his new ‘2nd Edition printing’ of the renowned classic “By His Example”, with new stories never before published. I am pleased to offer it for sale, from our web site http://www.theharekrishnamovement.com and hope it will be recieved by the vaisnava community. It is filled with wonderful stories and memories, as well as accounts of Prabhupada’s glories. In his own words…

“This book is not meant to be a biography, but rather a transcendental medium that allows both those who knew him and those who never had a chance to meet Prabhupada to experience his humor and compassion, to come into closer contact with his vani and vapu. Prabhupada once said, “Krishna consciousness means happiness.” I hope that you may derive some happiness, inspiration, encouragement, and transcendental ecstasy from this rendering.” (Gurudas)

A Day in the Life of Jayananda Thakur

This is the New Book by Vishoka Prabhu

A Day in the Life of Jayananda Thakur
Authored by Vishoka Dasa

Many religions are thinking “my religion is the only way.” And thus there are so many holy wars and quarrels. They try to convert all others to their sectarian creed. In contrast, the wise saints of India have historically been the most tolerant and respectful of other religions, saying that the purpose of all religion is to develop love of God, not to fight and convert. One of the great saints of India came to America in the 70’s and transplanted a temple of Shree Shree Radha Krishna onto the streets of San Francisco, where Tom joined to be a monk, and he had the great experience of working with a man who became a saint revered by all peoples from all walks of life in San Francisco, who enjoyed his saintliness, regardless of their own particular beliefs. This is the mark of a true saint, and people can still appreciate the reality of a modern saint, even to this day, by the biographical reading of his saintly qualities of giving love of God to others, without motive to convert or change anyone’s faith.

Enter, Srila Prabhupada (Chapter 13)

The Hare Krishna Explosion
by Hayagriva das

Part III: New Vrindaban, 1968-1969
Chapter 13

Enter, Srila Prabhupada

In his long absence, Swamiji’s words haunt me: “Although I am practically on the path of death, still I cannot forget my publications. I wish that if I live or die, you will take very serious care for my publications.“

We are bewildered trying to keep the ISKCON ship afloat, subsisting on the only supplies left—the holy names, the words, the taped lectures, the few books and pamphlets, the memories and photographs.

“Although I am practically on the path of death….”

(Swamiji always said “practically” for “actually.”)

His publications! The Word in English! Before me sits the first complete draft of Bhagavad-gita As It Is, ready for final English revision. “It must be published at once,” he told us repeatedly. “Either get some publisher, or we print it ourselves. Complete it quickly.”

Leaving San Francisco, even revising the manuscript on the plane, I return to New York to work with Brahmananda, who is still hounding publishers.

In Matchless Gifts, we carry on, keeping silent vigil for reports on Swamiji’s condition. Every day, we wait for a letter from Swamiji himself, signed in a large, firm hand, “Your ever well-wisher, A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami.”

Soon letters from Kirtanananda begin to arrive. Word spreads. Swamiji and Kirtanananda were detained overnight in London because someone on the plane was infected with smallpox. A twenty-four hour quarantine. They were accomodated in a hotel by the airline. In the morning, Swamiji was feeling much better, and they were in Moscow in three hours.

Swamiji was not impressed by the stark silence of the Moscow airport. Nor by the peasant women mopping the floor, nor by the Marxist tracts. Women should be protected, and in every society there exists the four castes. How can the sudras, the working class be expected to dominate government? The four castes were proclaimed eternal by Krishna Himself. Mr. Marx cannot arbitrarily abolish them. Such is the illusion of demons.

“We stayed in Moscow about an hour,” Kirtanananda writes, then reboarded and were in Delhi by midnight. We arrived in the middle of the monsoons, so when we got off the plane, the hot and humid Indian air hit us. It was like walking into a scorching brick wall.”

KIRTAN Ancient Medicine for Modern Man

KIRTAN Ancient Medicine for Modern Man
by Hansadutta Swami

Rare out of Print book written by one on the famous Kirtan Leaders of The Hare Krishna Movement.

“The singing and dancing of Hare Krsna is known as kirtan. My spiritual master Srila Prahupada said; “This is not ordinary dancing: this is the dancing of the soul, a soul awakened to his original consciousness, Krishna consciousness.” There is no motive in performing kirtana. It is the song and dance of ecstasy, the dance of the soul. The soul is dancing: therefore the body is dancing. Actually, the body cannot dance without the soul. A body without the soul is a dead body” (excerpt from book)

This is a beautiful Softbound book that is beautifully illustrated with Color and B & W Plates throughout.

Very enjoyable reading, and remembering.

We highly recommend reading this account of the memories and pastimes of Gurudas Prabhu which was sanctioned personally by His Divine Grace in a letter written to Gurudas on April 27, 1969.

‘This book is not meant to be a biography but rather a transcendental medium that allows both those who knew him and those who never had a chance to meet Prabhupada to experience his humor and compassion, to come into closer contact with his vani and vapu. Prabhupada once said “Krishna consciousness means happiness.” I hope that you may derive some happiness, inspiration, encouragement, and transcendental ecstasy from this reading’ -Gurudas
