Śrīla Prabhupāda and His Disciples in Germany
Whenever Śrīla Prabhupāda toured his ISKCON temples around the world, he inspired his followers by his spiritual presence, spotless character, and uncompromising devotion to Kṛṣṇa. This is an adventure story about establishing the Hare Kṛṣṇa movement in Germany. Prabhupāda went to Germany only twice – in September 1969, where he encouraged his small band in an intimate, almost informal setting, and later in June 1974, when more than a hundred disciples greeted him.
The book includes vignettes by Śrīla Prabhupāda’s early disciples in Germany – unforgettable moments of personal service to their spiritual master, how they came to Kṛṣṇa consciousness, their struggles to establish the movement and grow as devotees, their attempts to deal with becoming accepted by the German people despite mistakes. Readers will appreciate the honesty of this account, and will also accompany the German devotees to Paris, Amsterdam, London, Stockholm, Māyāpur, and Vṛndāvana to glimpse their incredible dedication to and love for serving Śrīla Prabhupāda.
