Why did Srila Prabhupada spend so much time and effort writing all of these books? I have one query: I beg ou to reply. I also wrote a comment yesterday. But it it not visible in your website now. What happened to it? That is what it is for.
Please do it. Print out the pages and read them…. If you read them aloud also, including chanting the Sanskrit verses, it has more potency than just reading it in your mind.
Reading in your mind is also good, but if you read it aloud then you are chanting it and hearing it and Krishna consciousness is actually realized through chanting and hearing much more than thinking in the mind.
Thinking in the mind is of course smaranam, remembering, one of the nine processes of devotional service, so I am not in any way minimizing this, but hearing and chanting is better and that includes remembering also. So if you read aloud you are performing simultaneously hearing, chanting and remembering, which is much better than just remembering…. Prabhu,can you please tell me if Srimad Bhagavad Gita is available in pdf format? And, will it be okay to take a print out of the pages and read them, instead of purshasing the books?
I will be extremely grateful if you can provide me with a kind reply. There is no Canto 13, only Srila Prabhupada only translated up to 10th Canto Chapter 13 so that is all that is available in English in an authorized form.
Please read and study the 12, pages Prabhupada has already given us in Cantos Please let me know if there is any auspicious time or muhurta to start reading Srimad Bhagavatam. Srila Prabhupada only translated up to Tenth Canto Chapter After that there is no bona-fide translation of the Srimad-Bhagavatam in English.
I cannot think of reading incomplete Bhagavatam. Is it how its followed by everybody, Or, any alternate procedure followed? Kindly let me know. It is not incomplete. It will take you a long time to read this, then there is about 8, pages of Sri-Caitanya Caritamrta, pages of Bhagavad-gita, and so many other things.
Thank you encouraging me to carry on with my will of reading Srimad Bhagavatm. I am currently in my first reading on Sri Bhagavad Gita and it has utterly influenced me. I have totally changed my way of life and consciousness. Start reading it now.
I am very grateful for these downloads, but I wonder if the 10th canto will be available for download in future? Thanks, thank you very much. Hari Bol!! It is there now, Can you look up something for me? A few lines into the Purport. It says:. Therein lies the problem.
This is not an error and the current Bhagavatams still are the original pre Bhagavatams. At least as far as I know so far the BBT have not changed them although they want to change the Bhagavatam and may have done that in their most recent printing, I do not know.
These four orders of life: It is student life, married life, retired life and renounced life. So these are social orders. Students are one social order, married people are another social order, retired people are another social order and the renounced order is another social order.
These orders are part of the Vanrasrama system which is about organizing the society in such a way that it is conducive for spiritual advancement. So the whole Varnasrama system is a social order which has as its aim facilitating the spiritual upliftment of all the people…. Hare Krishna Community. Srimad Bhagavatam Scans of Original Books.

When the unlimitedly powerful Lord assumed the form of a boar as a pastime, just to lift the planet earth, which was drowned in the great ocean of the universe called the Garbhodaka, the first demon Hiranyaksa appeared, and the Lord pierced him with His tusk.
This is not a change. There is absolutely no change to the meaning of the text. Prabhupada wrote a number of letters to the editors requesting corrections be made to the first edition Bhagavatams so you can not expect that all the printings will be absolutely identical to the first editions. So please read the books. I extracted images from last file, they were MB. After optimizing using them RIOT http: So if you have created smaller.
The text is not searchable as I dont have the proper software for it. However, it is adequate for viewing on computer screen. The big PDF files are good as reference, but it might be difficult to open them at older or slower computers. More info http: I request that the images may be optimized in size without losing quality and put individually so that we can see image of any page without downloading the whole file.
Scanning or photographing is the best way to keep the books in computer format because it is free from missing texts and spelling mistakes.
Here are some instances of missing texts: Just wire. Srimad Bhagvatam SB 5. In at NY airport, just after Rathayatra, devotees inquired from Srila Prabhupada about the nature of the confusing maps in the just released 5th canto.
After these many years I have been given the means to define the original nature of these maps scientifically. But it requires that the information be viewed under a very different set of circumstances where a complete washout of the western education that all western devotees were subject to and see the information through that lens. The current intellectual house of mirrors does not allow modern man to conceptualize outside certain restrictive definitions ie that what is not happening in the astronomical sky today of planets and their relationships — did not happen in ancient times.
The sky has not changed much in the last years. What is in the FIfth Canto is an accurate description of the universe we live in. But as you say we have all been brainwashed by the current world view and most people, devotees included, can not accept that the actual universe is so different from what they have been told it is like since birth….
But actually the current scientific climate is such that if you could actually explain it in a way that they could understand it at least a small percentage of scientists would be open to it and many would be curious to investigate it. The problem is we do not understand the universe as it is described in the Fifth Canto and we can not explain it to the scientists. Not that the scientists refuse to accept it. Our model has to explain everything that we observe and it has to explain it better than their model.
But we do not have that model. So how can we expect any scientist to take us seriously? The actual universe according to the Bhagavatam is dramatically different from what we have come to believe it to be according to the scientists and astronomers. For example there is only one sun in the whole universe and all the things we call stars are actually just like the moon. The earth is in the center of the universe and everything is rotating, not around the earth, but around an axis which goes from the polestar out to the mountain range half-way out the universe.
And everything is moving gradually because the whole thing is moving around the mountain range gradually to make a full circuit in days….
So it is a very nice system that actually does perfectly explain everything we see. On vedabase. Why is that? I searched on Wikipedia it said Srimad Bhagavatam has 12 cantos. Please clear this doubt. Did you forgot to upload the last two cantos or there were originally only 10 cantos translated and explained by Swami Prabhupada ji? They are cheating Prabhu. After Canto 10 Chapter 13 there is no Prabhupada Bhagavatam. And ISKCON are such rascals that they are not even prepared to tell the readers who it was that made these translations and purports.
But if someone who is not a pure devotee of Krishna, someone who still has material desires to fulfill, attempts to write Vaisnava literature it will fail. His books will not have any potency to deliver the transcendental knowledge to anyone, rather, even though they may seem very bona fide and very spiritual and even the philosophy in them may be correct, but because the heart of the author is not clean if you read his books the result will be that your heart will become contaminated, not purified….
So it is poison, and we are not going to put any poison on http: Also, is this original edition available for sale too? Therefore, could you kindly publish the original versions of all the books by Srila Prabhupada as you have done with this original edition of Srimad Bhagavatam?
Many of the books printed by the BBT are still original. Up to recently the Srimad-Bhagavatams were all original. But Bhagavad-gita and Krsna Book have been changed a lot and Caitanya-caritamrta is also changed but less. Prabhupada wrote some canto 1st of SB in India , they were i think printed by Gita Press , is it true? He collected the money for the printing himself by selling his Back to Godhead magazine and getting some donations from various important persons and businessmen.
I believe the Gita Press gave Srila Prabhupada some donations towards his great mission of printing the Srimad-Bhagavatam but they did not print it. Prabhupada printed it himself in Delhi. It is not that Prabhupada wrote the First Canto of the Bhagavatam twice. He printed the First Canto in India so he would have something substantial to take with him when he went to the Western countries to preach.
So when Prabhupada went to the USA on the Jaladutta he took many cases of his Srimad-Bhagavatam with him and later on shipped more to the US when he was more established there. So Prabhupada did not write it twice. He did, however, write the Bhagavad-gita As It Is twice. That is because the original manuscript he wrote in India was stolen.
As far as Prabhupada never criticizing the Gaudiya Matha, that is a lie. Prabhupada very loudly and openly criticized his godbrothers for going against the orders of Srila Bhaktsiddhanta and even has written very, very strong criticize of the Gaudiya Matha in the purports of his Caitanya-caritamrta.
So not only did Prabhupada strongly criticize his godbrothers in India even before coming to the West, he criticized them many times in letters to and conversations with his disciples, and he even published that criticize in his books.
So we have to criticize if devotees are presenting themselves as following Srila Prabhupada but are not. Otherwise innocent people will be fooled by them. Of course Prabhupada did not concentrate on criticizing his godbrothers. He did not do it all the time. He had much more important things to talk about. But still he did very strongly and openly criticize them on many, many occasions.
So honestly both sides are useless. So they are both lying, both useless. But that Krishna. I want to see one iskcon dying to serve Prabhupada and his mission , where everyone is out of politics hatred and envy.
I am a aspiring to be a follower of Srila Prabhupada, that is all. I am not a supporter of anyone else. He can not give something that he does not have himself. So if he is not himself a pure unalloyed devotee of Krishna he can not help anyone else become a pure unalloyed devotee of Krishna. And this is also a lie. Prabhupada wants his disciples to become qualified bona fide diksa gurus. But of course the qualification is required. That qualification is not very difficult, in theory, but in practice it is very rare to find someone who is actually prepared to surrender to Srila Prabhupada and Krishna.
So in this way they are lying also. That is all I am saying and I am suggesting that if you really want to understand what Srila Prabhupada is teaching us on the guru issue and on every other issue is that you please read his books. Just hear directly from Srila Prabhupada…. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Then we will not go wrong.
Book Distribution , Srimad-Bhagavatam. I started seriously reading Srila Prabhupada's books in Australia and by Srila Prabhupada had convinced me "Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead" and "we should surrender to Krishna.
That's my life and full-time occupation now really. I like it more than anything I've ever experienced before.
Srila Prabhupada's books are so amazing Even after reading them all many times they're still fresh and new. They are truly transcendental! That's it really. Now I'm just hankering to once again see the world chant Hare Krishna, dance and feast and float away in the ecstasy of Lord Caitanya's Sankirtana movement as it did in Srila Prabhupada's physical presence.

February 14, at 5: Avinash Rajkumar says: February 13, at 9: The Radha-Damodara temple, which has since fallen into disrepair, houses the samadhi burial place of Jiva Gosvami, one of the six prime disciples of Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
Lord Caitanya gave His disciples in Vrndavana three important instructions: first, to discover the exact locations where Krsna displayed His pastimes, as revealed in the sastras scriptures ; then, to build temples where the Lord could be suitably worshiped; and, finally, to write books fully explaining the real science of devotional service to God.
Lord Caitanya Himself wrote only eight slokas stanzas , but the six Gosvamis of Vrndavana have left a vast body of literature for the inestimable benefit of all humanity. He was then able to write volumes of books, which have prompted one Indian authority to declare Jiva Gosvami the greatest philosopher that has ever lived. It is lamentable that due to the lack of qualified translators, the English-knowing world may never be able to take advantage of these books. The Radha-Damodara temple is also the site of the samadhi of Krsnadasa Kaviraja, the most important biographer of Lord Caitanya.
Krsnadasa Kaviraja appeared after Lord Caitanya but was contemporary to the six Gosvamis. This book recounts the teachings of Lord Caitanya more vividly than the biographical details which have been preserved by other authors. The treasure of Radha-Damodara is the samadhi and bhajana place for executing devotional service of Srila Rupa Gosvami.
Of the six Gosvamis, he is the most important. Rupa Gosvami constructed the largest temple in Vrndavana, Radha-Govindaji, and he wrote the most important book on the science of devotional service, Bhakti-rasamrta-sindhu , which was completed in the year He and his elder brother Sanatana Gosvami were among the chief government administrators of their time and were highly learned in Arabic, Persian and Sanskrit.
Lord Caitanya personally instructed Rupa Gosvami for ten consecutive days, and Bhakti-rasamrta-sindhu codifies these teachings, with supporting evidence from scores of supplementary Vedic texts. Thus they are honored all over the three worlds, and they are worth taking shelter of because they are absorbed in the mood of the gopis and are engaged in the transcendental loving service of Radha and Krsna.
Just before this window is a bare wooden asana seat where Srila Prabhupada sat to receive inspiration from the greatest of the Gosvamis. From the volume of manuscripts and letters he left behind, it is evident that he was constantly writing. He wrote by hand in notebooks, in school lesson pads, and even on the reverse side of mimeographed news releases from the Soviet news agency which was located in nearby Delhi.
Many of these Radha-Damodara manuscripts are incomplete and as yet unpublished. They include Science of Devotion, Practical Theism, Message of Godhead, Prayers of King Kulasekhara and a lengthy verse to verse translation and purport of the first part of the Caitanya-caritamrta.
In addition to books and letters, during this time Srila Prabhupada also edited Back to Godhead, a fortnightly paper begun in in fulfillment of an order by his spiritual master, His Divine Grace Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Gosvami Maharaja. At the very first meeting he had with Srila Prabhupada in , as well as in a letter written only weeks before his demise in , Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati specifically requested Srila Prabhupada to propagate the teachings of Krsna consciousness through the medium of the English language.
A devotee takes the orders of his spiritual master as his very life, and this is what has impelled His Divine Grace to write prolifically despite many hindrances. Due to spiritual potency, a perfectly executed order received from a higher transcendental authority benefits not only the performer of the duty but also the whole world. Back to Godhead contained timely articles, essays, book reviews and selections from full-length works in progress such as the Sri Isopanisad.
It should be noted that this paper was entirely the effort of Srila Prabhupada. He wrote all the material, edited it, typed it for the printer and checked the galley proofs. Then he sold the copies. Each fortnight he would take batches of Back to Godhead into Delhi. To save a few cents bus fare he sometimes had to walk for miles, and often he would sit in tea parlors until late at night, himself not even taking a glass of water there, preaching and distributing his paper and collecting one cent per copy.
At this time Srila Prabhupada also wrote outlines of his dream. It was a worldwide association of God conscious devotees who actively preached the eternal religion of love of God in all fields of society at large and who used all the modern means at their disposal. From international sankirtana parties, to gosalas cow protection reserves , to authorized teaching of Sanskrit, to a printing press solely for flooding the marketplace with Krsna conscious literature, ISKCON is today the reality of that dream.
This work was published by the League of Devotees, but, as with Back to Godhead, it was solely by the effort of Srila Prabhupada. Srimad-Bhagavatam is said to be the postgraduate study of Bhagavad-gita. Of course, in the West Bhagavad-gita is well known. Each year finds several new editions on the American market. Albert Einstein also was a regular student of the Gita, and I am told that Robert Oppenheimer, the atomic physicist, quoted a verse from the Eleventh Chapter upon seeing the first test explosion of the atomic bomb in Yet there have been no English editions of Srimad-Bhagavatam, which is more advanced than Bhagavad-gita.
Bhagavad-gita is spoken by Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, to His disciple Arjuna, and there unfolds the entire Vedic philosophy of Krsna consciousness. But who is Krsna? A prophet? A philosopher? An incarnation of God? Srimad-Bhagavatam answers this question. Like Bhagavad-gita, it was written 5, years ago by Srila Vyasadeva, a literary incarnation of Krsna. In twelve cantos containing 18, verses, Srimad-Bhagavatam presents complete information about the Lord, how His energies work, the nature of the living entities or spirit souls, our relationship with God and how to develop love for Him.
Either He is relegated to the position of a historical personage, a mere literary device, or He is conceived as an impersonal ever-existing state of being. This allows the commentator himself to replace Krsna as the speaker of the Gita, and he is then free to present his own interpretations and mental speculations instead of Krsna consciousness.
In the first sloka of the Srimad-Bhagavatam, obeisances are offered to the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
Whereas others have translated the Sanskrit scriptures conveniently to suit their interpretations, Srila Prabhupada always gives word-for-word English equivalents for each Sanskrit verse, and thus the translations cannot be disputed.
This is a painstaking process, considering the length of the Srimad-Bhagavatam, but it is in keeping with the heritage of the Gosvamis to present the literature of devotional service authoritatively and scientifically. Hare Krishna! I am Ishan das. Some who have left comments are dear Krishna conscious friends from the If the statement is true then why did Ramkrishna parmahans died of cancer and why was Jesus A great service you are doing to His Divine Grace and for all generations of devotees What a beautiful enlightened reply.
Ghosts and Spirits Are Real! But bhagawad Gita says after death soul goes to hell or heaven according to his or her karma. Prabhupada always says that we should change our association and live around pure devotees.
But the problem Are there marriages on spiritual planets also Announcing KrishnaStore. Two hundred year old human theories. I also Apparently the reference for this quote is wrong, as when I look it up by the reference, it is a
