Maha book for sale

Maha From Srila Prabhupada

Posted December 15, 2011

Due to a family emergency I am forced to sell one of Srila Prabhupada's personal copies of the Srimad Bhagavatam which I've had in my possession for more than 30 years. When Srila Prabhupada was still physically present amongst us, and every time the BBT would publish a new book, the first copy that came out of the printers would have gold-edge pages and it was sent to Srila Prabhupada for his own personal use (any devotee who worked at the BBT in those days will remember this). Some times Srila Prabhupada would travel with one such copies and usually these personal copies of Srila Prabhupada were kept in one of his temples where he spent the most time.

The particular copy that I have is the 8th Canto part one, originally kept in Srila Prabhupada's house in Vrindaban, India where Srila Prabhupada would some times pick it up and read from it. Any one interested please contact Jaya Gouranga das, cellphone No. (310) 945-8848 or (310) 204-2523

  1. More SOS calls from the false guru camp:
    Bhagavad-gita As It Is, one of the most respected holy scriptures of the world today, is under the threat of being banned in Russia.

    The court proceedings will resume in Siberian city Tomsk, Russia, on Monday 19th. The prosecutors in Tomsk suggest that the widely distributed book translated and commented upon by A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada should be included in the Justice Ministry's list of banned extremist literature.

    Bhagavad-gita As It Is is translated in more than 80 languages. Over 100 million copies of this book was distributed to date all over the world! Millions of people in the world today consider it as the main book in their life.

    The prosecutors with great determination and vigor are pushing through this absurd case. During the first three court hearings, the testimony of the Tomsk experts upon which the prosecutors built their case for the court was recognized as «inadequate». However, the Prosecutor's Office
    ordered the new testimony. Noteworthy, that the testimony was requested not from the well-known experts of Hinduism from Moscow, but from some unknown experts from Kemerovo State University. This move clearly suggests that the court decision is already predestined. This practice brings to memory the Middle Age Inquisition, Witch hunting, burning of books and the persecution of the dissidents during Soviet period of Russian history.
