kusakrathaHis Grace Kusakratha prabhu (ACBSP), who departed October 2005 in Vrindavana (Krishna-Balarama-Temple), made it clear in his will that no books of his should be sold, rather they should be given away for free. With this in mind we are today on the Appearance Day Celebration of Srila Jiva Goswami, we are posting this very valuable work.

Kusakratha Prabhu, a direct initiated disciple of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, joined ISKCON in 1969. Shortly after Srila Prabhupada’s departure from this world in 1979, he began to translate and publish classical Sanskrit and Bengali Gaudiya Vaisnava works into the English language.

By excavating these literary treasures at an overwhelming rate he rejuvenated the devotees all over the world, who felt great sorrow in the absence of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Srila Prabhupada. We are grateful to Kusakratha Prabhu for bringing to light the original works of our Gaudiya Vaisnava Acaryas including the Six Goswamis of Vrindavana.

Some of the literature, that Kuskratha Prabhu has translated, is so confidentially elevated that many devotees are not yet ready to grasp it. Nevertheless, these immortal works now stand as a vast body of reference material for the Vaisnava community to consult. Aside from accurately transmitting the words of the acaryas, Kusakratha has also rendered thousands of pages of glorification of Krishna through his personal English poetic composition. Some of these compositions have been published though many have not, as of yet.
