  • Nectar of Devotion

    The Complete Science of Bhakti-yoga by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada The Nectar of Devotion is Srila Prabhupada's summary study of Bhakti-rasamrita-sindhu ("The Ocean of the Pure Nectar of Devotional Service") by Rupa Goswami, a direct disciple of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. Readers will find in The Nectar of Devotion many interesting and instructive pastimes of Krishna and His devotees, from a variety of Vedic scriptural sources, each meant to illustrate a particular aspect of rasa—relationship with Krishna—and to show how each manifests practically in one's life. Srila Prabhupada specifically composed The Nectar of Devotion as an essential volume for practitioners of bhakti-yoga, Krishna consciousness. Part one consists of four "waves," the first being a general description of devotional service. The second concerns the regulative principles for executing devotional service, and the third wave, devotional service in ecstasy. In the fourth is the ultimate goal, love of God. The Nectar of Devotion explicitly describes all these topics along with their different symptoms.

  • Krishna, Reservoir of Pleasure

    Krishna–this sound is transcendental. Krishna means the highest pleasure. Each of us, every living being, seeks pleasure. But we do not know how to seek pleasure perfectly. With a materialistic concept of life, we are frustrated at every step in satisfying our pleasure because we have no information regarding the real level on which to have real pleasure. To enjoy real pleasure, one must first understand that he is not the body but consciousness. Not exactly consciousness, for consciousness is actually the symptom of our real identity: we are pure soul, now merged within this material body.

  • Krsna Book

    The Supreme Personality of Godhead by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada Krsna (pronounced "Krishna"),The Supreme Personality of Godhead, is a summary study of the tenth canto of the Srimad-Bhagavatam. The Bhagavatam is an encyclopedic, 18,000 verse text—divided into twelve Cantos—chronicling many of Krishna's various incarnations over the millennia. It also describes the creation and cosmography of the material universes, and the lives of many pure devotees of Krishna and how they attained perfection. The tenth canto of the Bhagavatam focuses on Krishna Himself and His activities when He appeared on earth five thousand years ago. In Krishna, The Supreme Personality of Godhead—popularly known as "Krishna Book"—we see the private life of the Supreme Person. Behind all the omnipotence and majesty, Krishna is the all-attractive, fun-loving, perfect person, eternally reciprocating unlimited varieties of loving relationships with His devotees. His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada wrote "Krishna Book" before he had even fully completed his translation and commentary on the Bhagavatam. He wanted people to hear about Krishna the person and His activities, in English, from an authorized representative of the Krishna-bhakti tradition. As he mentions in his Introduction, this was so they wouldn't risk mistaking Krishna to be just another human being and his pastimes as mundane adventure/romance stories. It should be said, however, that fans of adventure and romance will find nothing lacking in this contemporary recounting of Krishna's activities.

  • Introduction to Bhagavad-gita As It Is

    The Bhagavad-gita is the greatest of India's ancient spiritual classics. Srila Prabhupada, the Founder-Acarya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, originally translated the Bhagavad-gita in 1967, providing each verse with an illuminating commentary. Having only recently come to the West, he was unable to print the book at that time. Therefore, the introduction which he had written for the Bhagavad-gita was printed first as a separate pamphlet. This booklet is a reprint of the introduction. The reader will find in it a through exposition of the philosophy of the Bhagavad-gita in a clear and straightforward manner. This introduction is important for those who are approaching the Bhagavad-gita for the first time. Unlike other presentations and translations, Srila Prabhupada presents the Bhagavad-gita as it is, free from personal speculations and interpretations. He focuses our attention on what Krishna is actually teaching in the Gita. For all these reasons we are sure you will find this introduction to the Bhagavad-gita to be enlightening and conducive to personal transformation. The Publishers - from the Preface
