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.

Ramayana

av Krishna Dharma (Kenneth Anderson)

Berättelsen om prins Rama har återgetts sedan årtusenden i Indien och Sydostasien. Otaliga generationer har lärt känna den hjältemodige krigaren och hans dramatiska väg till tronen i Ayodhya, hans giftermål med den undersköna Sita och hur hon rövas bort av Ravana, en fruktansvärd demon som lagt under sig hela universum. För att befria Sita tar Rama hjälp av den kraftfulla apan Hanuman och en väldig armé av apor och björnar med övernaturliga krafter. Eposet Ramayana utspelar sig i en avlägsen tid då mäktiga hjältar, mystiker, vismän och gudar vandrade över jorden.

Kenneth Andersons romanversion av Ramayana är en attraktiv och lättillgänglig återgivning av den uråldriga berättelsen. Mahabharata, Indiens andra stora epos, finns redan utgiven på svenska, återberättad av samma författare. Därmed kan vi i Sverige äntligen ta del av dessa båda klassiker, som är fyllda av dramatik, kärlek, äventyr, visdom och gigantiska uppgörelser på slagfälten.

 

   



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 our Krishna consciousness movement is educating people that "You are not this body, not this mind, not this intelligence, but above this. You are spirit soul." So Krishna confirms that mamaivamsa. So if Krishna is spirit, supreme spirit, then you are also supreme spirit. But the only difference is that He is the supreme; we are subordinate. Nityo nityanam cetanas cetananam eko yo bahunam vidadhati... (Katha Upanisad 2.2.13). This is Vedic injunction. He's also living entity, we are also living entity, but He is supreme and we are subordinate. That is the difference. Eko yo bahunam vidadhati kaman. This is our position. This is self-realization. When you understand this, that "Krishna, or the Supreme Lord, or God, whatever you say, He's the whole spirit soul, and we are fragmental portion of that spirit soul, and He's the maintainer; we are maintained. He is the predominator; we are predominated," so this is first realization, brahma-bhuta. This is called brahma-bhuta. And if you make more advance in brahma-bhuta stage, then maybe after many births you can understand what is Krishna. That is the ver... Bahunam janmanam ante (BG 7.19). Krishna says in the Bhagavad-gita, bahunam janmanam ante jnanavan mam prapadyate. When one is perfectly jnanavan, wise, then his business is vasudevah sarvam iti sa mahatma sudurlabhah (BG 7.19). Then he can understand that Vasudeva, the son of Vasudeva, Krishna, is everything. That realization required. That is the perfection of Krishna consciousness.


From the lecture on Srimad-Bhagavatam 05.05.02, given by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada on April 11, 1975 in Hyderabad.

 

 


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.
