Elevation to Krishna Consciousness

His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

The quality of our consciousness can go up or down based on how we see the world and act in it. When we act like the eternal spiritual beings that we are – small parts of a supreme whole – makes us happy. But if we focus our attempts at happiness on the temporary body and mind – on matter – and make those our life's priority, our consciousness will shrink and we’ll be miserable. Spiritual elevation – raising our consciousness to higher levels – happens quickly when we revive our God consciousness.

In this compact book, Srila Prabhupada recommends seeing the world as it is – a temporary place full of anxiety – and then taking the road to higher consciousness by rediscovering our relationship with the Supreme Person, Krishna. Anyone can become elevated; the journey begins with a single step up.


Srila Prabhupada träffade sin andlige mästare Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati 1922. Denne bad då Srila Prabhupada att sprida den vediska kunskapen på engelska. Under åren som följde skrev Srila Prabhupada en kommentar till Bhagavad-gita och bistod Gaudiya Matha i dess arbete. År 1944 började han ge ut Back to Godhead, en tidskrift på engelska som kom ut varannan vecka.
