Timeline of Srila Prabhupada's Travels (1965 - 1977)



  Created by Madana-Mohan and Krsna-kirti Das, based upon a thorough research by Satarupa Devi for ISKCON50.
 
Someone remarked that Srila Prabhupada is busy flying around the globe just like a bumblebee around various flowers, but unlike an ordinary bumblebee, this one is not collecting the nectar but distributing it.

Bortom födelse och död

av His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

Allt fler säger sig tro på ett liv efter döden. I själva verket finns det en mängd belägg för att reinkarnation är ett faktum. I Bortom födelse och död förklarar Indiens främsta Vediska auktoritet vår verkliga identitet, hur själen färdas genom olika kroppar, hur man kan ta sig ur födelsens och dödens kretslopp och slutligen nå en tillvaro som är fri från den materiella världens fyra problem: födelse, sjukdom, ålderdom och död.

   
   



Perfekta frågor, perfekta svar

av His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

En ung amerikansk fredskårist reser till andra sidan jorden i sitt sökande efter mening. I en bambuhydda i den lilla västbengaliska byn Mayapur träffar han en av Indiens största helgonlika mästare, en lärare som verkar kunna besvara alla hans frågor.

Sri Sri Gandharvika-Giridhari, the presiding Deities at New Radhakund
(enlarge)


Korsnäs Gård is the only Radha-Krishna temple in Scandinavia. The Deities were installed in 1980 and named Sri Sri Gandharvika-Giridhari. Although the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust was not here when the Deities were named, it is amazing that these beautiful Deities accepted the same names as the Deities Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur established almost a hundred years earlier in India to oversee his own printing press.



SRILA PRABHUPADA
SPEAKS OUT:
His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

So Krishna is looking for the opportunity when the living entity will come back to Him, because we are all sons. So father, if the son is bewildered, gone out of the home and loitering in the street, the father is very anxious to get him back, although the son has forgotten. This is the position. Therefore, as Paramatma, He's guiding us. Sarvasya caham hrdi sannivistah: "I am sitting in everyone's heart." From Him, we get the remembrance.

I wanted to enjoy something. Krishna gives us full opportunity: "Now here is the opportunity. You can do it." He's so kind. But that is not our actual business. Our actual business is to go back home, back to Godhead, not to enjoy in this material world. But still, because we want it, Krishna gives us all facilities. If we want to enjoy this material world, Krishna will give us all the opportunities. You can become the topmost living entity like Lord Brahma, and you can become an insignificant ant, according to your karma.

From the lecture on Bhagavad-gita As It Is, given by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada on March 25, 1974, in Bombay, India

 

 


A new website to shed light
Because Srila Prabhupada's books are sacred, his followers may sometimes wonder whether it is right to edit or revise them after his departure. BBTedit.com examines Srila Prabhupada's instructions to the BBT, and the history, myths, and controversies surrounding this important issue.
