Transcendental Teachings of Prahlada Maharaja

His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

At only five years old, Prahlada Maharaja instructed his schoolmates in the transcendental science of self-realization, covering such topics as how to meditate, the importance of sense control, how to achieve peace of mind, and ultimately how to reach the highest goal of life: pure love of God. This small booklet is a collection of Srila Prabhupada’s lectures on Prahlada’s teachings, from Srimad-Bhagavatam, Canto 7, chapter six.

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.
