    here is a reference to prabhupada in wikipedia

    A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    actually, they are known in the west as hare krishnas. they have a krishna temple in toronto, an old church. what impressed me was that how clean it was. we could eat off the floor.

    incidentally, they venerate prabhupada, almost as much as krishna.

    their books are excellent, because most of them are written for lay westerners and assume that you know nothing of hinduism. almost as good as chinmaya mission books.

    they also have a free bhojan daily. many of the harekrishnas are whites. they have a temple in mumbai, which i have visited.


    Hare Krishna Temple (Toronto) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    people find these folks sometimes too eager to push their philosphies. yesterday in very bitter minus 25 degree celsius cold, their bhajan group, all whites, at 1 pm in the afternoon, was singing out bhajans with dholak etc, right outside one of our main shopping centres. they are in the company of islamist, evangelical christians in that nothing appears to stop these folks from peddling their faith.

    actually they are building a temple in chennai

    http://www.iskconchennai.com/

    you should be able to get the book there. best wishes.

    Sri.*** sir,

    I bought that book years back at the end of Ranganathan St (not the train station end; other end) at T.Nagar. If anybody walks to Thirumala would not have missed the giant Maruthi statue (unless it is moved); Just past the statue there used to be a small restaurant run by Hare Krishnas; we can get the book there; we can get the book at thirumala... there will be many more places.

    The book is published by 'ISCON' (International Krishna Consciousness). The book is priced rather cheap & the price is subsidised.

    Cheers!

    very right sri kunjuppu >>> your opinions & observations about Srila Prabhupada.
    Here again in bangalore this movement is intense and Srila Prabhupada's devotees can be seen selling books in day Trains.

    Dear All,

    I also have found it handy but keep an open mind on some parts of commentary where Non Dualism(Advaitam) is not always projected in the best of light.
    Also Chapter 2 Stanza 47 is interprated slightly differently from the usual.
    Otherwise it a good book.

    Dear TBS ji,
    thanks for response...
    But I have to agree that the Illustrations(pictures) of Books and Calendars printed by ISKON are really out of this world in terms of beauty.
