Letters on how prisoners are being changed by Srila Prabhupada’s books
By Shyama Priya devi dasi
When people receive Srila Prabhupada’s books and are tranformed by them it is a wonderful thing to hear about. Here are some of the Vyasa Puja offerings that have been sent to us at ISKCON Prison Ministry.
Found answers to all my questions in Srila Prabhupada’s books: Srila Prabhupada I want to express my sincere appreciation to you for making such a great sacrifice at such an advanced age to come to
Second chance: Dear Srila Prabhupada; Thank you for bringing fortune in the unlikely place like prison. Here I find your nectarine Bhagavatam in the Chaplin’s library for fallen conditioned souls who are struggling in this Dark Age; inmates are getting the torchlight of spiritual knowledge through your books. You have given us a second chance of spiritual life from any other lower paths to the highest path of devotional service. You still live in your books and you are practically preaching to uplift us like a dear father. You teach us the sweet mantra and four regulative principles. (Mark Barnett, Canon City CO. He is seriously pursuing Krishna Consciousness for a while).
Srila Prabhupada books are guidelines to perfect ones life: It is because of the mercy of Srila Prabhupada through his ISKCON (IPM, ISKCON Prison Ministry); I have been given his wonderful books and the association of devotees through letters. IPM has made available to me the books of Srila Prabhupada that are guidelines to perfect ones life. The devotees within IPM have continually given me the push and encouragement to remain in the process of Krishna Consciousness through chanting, reading Srila Prabhupada’s books, participating in study courses and following the regulative principles. The devotees of IPM have remained confident of my ability to practice Krishna Consciousness even when I myself am not confident. They have not given up on me regardless of my situation, chaotic mind and often negative mentality. I am grateful to Srila Prabhupada for his ISKCON and grateful to the devotees who have made Srila Prabhupada’s books and teachings available to those who are outcaste from the society. (Mark Myers,
