Godruma Kalpatavi

Sri Godruma Kalpatavi ("The Desire-tree Grove of Godruma") is an English translation of Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura's newsletter collection.

It was originally produced in Bengal one-hundred-and-twenty years ago by Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura, to guide leaders and members in his preaching movement. The topics discussed are very practical issues often faced by those with families and careers who also want to fully engage in practicing and preaching Krishna consciousness.

The current publication is translated, with detailed purports, by Jayapataka Swami.

Free to Preach

Free to Preach is a touching and personal account of a grihasta couple spreading Krishna Consciousness in a Muslim country in the Middle East by Prema Padmini Dasi.

Read how this couple built a community from two to two thousand with love, care, training, small groups, interaction, participation, outreach, cultivation, supervision and empowerment.

An inspiring real-life story of how small group preaching can transform the lives of thousands of people, enabling them to experience the mercy of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s sankirtana movement in any town and village of the world.

The Nectar of Congregational Preaching

The Nectar of Congregational Preaching is an inspirational overview of the development of Krishna Consciousness among the congregational members of ISKCON to this point. It contains insights and instructions from our previous acharyas, and many realizations and personal accounts of success in congregational development by ISKCON Gurus, GBCs, and leading preachers.

Required reading for all devotees involved in developing congregations in ISKCON, this book is sure to keep you inspired to please the previous acharyas by spreading Lord Caitanya’s mercy far and wide.

Super Sunday

Muslims on Friday, Jews on Saturday, Christians on Sunday - they all retreat from their work routine and attend religious services. Every faithful person should use the weekly holiday for remembering God and advancing on the spiritual path.

"Kaunteya Prabhu's work is instructive and pleasing to read. It is pervaded by a union of two important qualities: infectious enthusiasm and critical self-awareness. Super Sunday not only exhibits the productive union of the two but also guides us in their practical application in revitalizing a specific program."
(From foreword by Ravindra Swarupa Das)
