Bill Clinton Gets a Bhagavad-gita About 3 blocks from temple here in Dallas, he accepted a book from Mathuranatha Prabhu.

Also in 1997 a devotee Paramananda Das distributed books to Chelsea Clinton, his daughter when he was president, 2 times. He gave her a SSR to her to also give her dad.

Latest ToVP Video Presentation to the GBCs and Assembled Vaisnavas

Nice video, I would suggest that if you would like exposure to post it on some share-able site. Youtube & Vimeo sites can be posted and shared in Facebook, blogs, and emails. I wanted to post this in our temple’s email as the video of the week, but I need to have in a shareable format, so that the see the the screen shot instead of just a link.

BBT E-books

Dear Kaisori,
What I could do personally is send them a link by email for an individual book. This I could do with the Dropbox app that is on the iPad and iPhone. This way it would just be one book instead of a cd of many.

There are some good chances that those who have ereaders or smart phones with ereader programs also have cellular internet on their phones. In this way you could request them to check their email on the spot to see if they received the book.

It hasn’t happened to me yet but say in 5 or 10 years I would expect to start hearing this response very often, “well do you have ebook version?”

If a devotee does not have a smart phone with internet access then devotee can request them to take the book with them and take their email and explain to them that they will send them later that day a complimentary ebook by email. This could be done easily with out a smart phone but rather just a desktop computer. I think that this is the best scenario, to convince the person to also take the physical book and follow it up with a complimentary copy. Since ebooks are so small one can simply also just email them directly.

Another option is to set up a website similar to bbtmedia but wherein a devotee could send a link of the book directly to the purchaser for download. The only difference is that this site should not have all the books listed for free or downloaded for free otherwise that purchaser may feel cheated.

Thank you all for you wonderful services,
Hare Krishna
Your humble servant,
Nityananda Chandra Das

Thank you for all your fine work. I can see the difference between the books that I had previously and the new ones that the BBT has actually produced. For example nice color page with George Harrison’s signature. However for KRSNA book I feel that there one really essential aspect that is missing. When you go through the index of KRSNA book chapters there is no chapter title. I feel that this is really important to have there. When someone is looking for something to read most likely, especially for KRSNA book, that person is likely going to want to look at the chapter titles with the chapter numbers not just the number alone. It there any possibility of getting that in?
Thank you

All glories to your services

I am really happy with all the wonderful services you are all doing for all of ISKCON. I prefer to read ebooks as I prefer keep my notes digital.

I have a question, are there any plans to look into how individual digital book selling could be made possible? I have some ideas myself. I have the books on epub file in dropbox and I can email a person a link to download the particular book file. That is to say if while on book distribution I meet someone else who also prefers ebooks. In this way they still can donate and also get the book delivered to them.

One other question, is there any way possible, say maybe with a Hindi font, to get the actual Devanagari in the books? I try to read it in Devanagari as much as possible to improve my reading speed and pronunciation. Thank you very very much. Hare Krishna

So nice to see your face here. You have certainly inherited a proper name due to gentle Vaishnava character.

I would just like to encourage all the devotees interested in this subject to listen to the honest and clear 5 day seminar of His Holiness Jayadvaita Swami. It has been made available on his website for quite some time now. It is known by the title “Food For Death” For those actually interested in this subject should properly do a faithful study of Srila Prabhupada’s words on this matter. Not only are the instructions explicit on what to do and what not to do, they are also quite numerous as well.

Those who are in ISKCON have a duty to be faithful to instructions of Srila Prabhupada. If we are to discuss and press on our convictions it is important that we are well informed of all the evidences related to this subject.

Are We More Intelligent Than Srila Prabhupada!

“The devotees of the Lord, while delivering speeches and describing the transcendental attributes of the Lord, do not think that they can do anything independently. They think that they can speak only what they are induced to speak by the Supreme Lord, the master of the senses. The senses of the individual being are not his own; the devotee knows that such senses belong to the Supreme Lord and that they can be properly used when they are employed for the service of the Lord. The senses are instruments, and elements are ingredients, all endowed by the Lord; therefore whatever an individual can do, speak, see, etc., is under the direction of the Lord only. The Bhagavad-gītā (15.15) confirms this: sarvasya cāhaṁ hṛdi sanniviṣṭo mattaḥ smṛtir jñānam apohanaṁ ca. No one is free to act freely and independently, and as such, one should always seek the permission of the Lord to act or eat or speak, ,and by the blessing of the Lord everything done by a devotee is beyond the principles of the four defects typical of the conditioned soul.” Srimad Bhagavatam 2.4.11 purport by Srila Prabhupada

"Karmi clothes" and "devotional clothes" - Getting the definitions right

Paramshreya Prabhu, I would just like to mention that the Vedabase is small percentage of the instructions given by Srila Prabhupada. Therefore Guru is there, from guru to disciple. From my small experience all my shiksha gurus who are disciples of Srila Prabhupada I find that it is without out a doubt that wearing dhoti and kurta was an establish practice given and trained by Srila Prabhupada.
