At their first meeting, in 1922, Srila Prabhupada was asked by his spiritual master, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura, to broadcast Vedic knowledge in English. In the years that followed, Srila Prabhupada wrote a commentary on the Bhagavad-gita, assisted the Gaudiya Matha in its work and, in 1944, started Back to Godhead, an English fortnightly magazine.
Eleven Lessons in the Ancient Science of Bhakti-yoga
Across five centuries and half the globe comes this compact guidebook of essential spiritual teachings. How to choose a guru, how to practice yoga, even where to live—you'll find it all in this invaluable work originally written in Sanskrit by Srila Rupa Gosvami, the greatest spiritual genius of medieval India.
Now translated and illuminated by Rupa Gosvami's modern successor, His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the Nectar of Instruction is the key to enlightenment for all seekers on the path of spiritual perfection.
Nara Narayana Dasa (Normand Vanasse) became a devotee of Krishna in the Montreal ISKCON temple in 1980. As a new member he was enthusiastic to share Srila Prabhupada’s books with others. He has continued with that service throughout the decades and otherwise spent much of his time on harinama – singing the holy names of Krishna in the streets.
