  • Prabhupada Condensed Lilamrita

    The worldwide fame of His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami, later known as Srila Prabhupada, was to come after 1965–after he arrived in America. Before leaving India he had written three books; in the next twelve years he was to write more than sixty. Before he left India he had initiated one disciple; in the next twelve years he would initiate more than four thousand. Before he left India, hardly anyone had believed that he could fulfill his vision of a worldwide society of Krishna devotees; but in the next decade he would form and maintain the International Society for Krishna Consciousness and open more than a hundred centers. Before sailing for America, he had never been outside India; but in the next twelve years he would travel many times around the world propagation the Krishna consciousness movement. Although his life’s contribution may appear to have come in a late burst of revolutionary spiritual achievements, the first sixty-nine years of his life were a preparation for those achievements. And although to Americans Prabhupada and his teachings were an unknown sudden appearance–“He looked like the genie that popped out of Aladdin’s lamp”–he was the stalwart representative of a centuries-old cultural tradition.

  • Beyond Illusion and Doubt

    Beyond Illusion And Doubt is a compilation of conversations between Srila Prabhupada and some of his disciples, comparing Vedic wisdom with Western philosophy. Despite studying the fundamental nature of knowledge, reality, and existence for thousands of years, Western philosophers have not been able to explain the self, the cosmos, and our place in it as comprehensively as the Vedic writings of ancient India, which are known as apaurusheya, "not of human origin." "To err is human" applies equally to the layman and the philosopher. Most philosophers tend to arrive at a different set of answers to life's fundamental questions. This constant overhauling of philosophies throughout Western history can make the study of philosophy frustrating, especially for anyone seeking practical answers to life's important questions. The underlying verdict is that while many philosophers became famous by being blessed with a partial revelation of the Absolute Truth, Krishna consciousness means knowing the Absolute Truth in full—as the Supreme Person. No amount of speculation can reveal such knowledge, and anyone who comes in contact with it becomes joyful and freed from anxiety.
