Golden Age Media is proud to announce, in association with HG Siddhanta Prabhu (ACBSP), the publication of the “Memories-Anecdotes of a Modern-Day Saint” series in English for exclusive distribution in India @ very subsidized price. This beautiful 3 volume set includes the entire library of interviews of Srila Prabhupada’s disciples about their time in his association. HH Gopal Krishna Goswami Maharaj unveiled the set on the auspicious occasion of Srila Prabhupada’s Vyasa Puja Pandal program at ISKCON-Delhi. You will hear from over 400 devotees and almost 15,000 anecdotes within its 1500 Nectar-filled pages. Thousands of stories to inspire you daily! Its 59 chapters took almost 25 years in making!! This set is a definite “Page Turner” as we guarantee a story on every page that will inspire and educate every reader. The following are a few sample stories: “In one lecture, Prabhupada said, ‘This is a movement for the living entity.’ I was thinking how generally we talk about saving the human beings, but he was describing the movement as a movement for all living entities. That struck me.” “A challenging reporter asked Prabhupada, ‘What do you do? You walk on water? Do you turn water into wine?’ Prabhupada said, ‘There can be a beautiful woman here naked-you will be attracted, I will not.'” “One devotee asked, ‘Why do we say we’re living in a world of maya when it feels so real? I know that I’m here. This isn’t a dream. I’m seeing it.’ Prabhupada replied, ‘When you sleep at night, do you dream?’ The devotee said, ‘Yes.’ Prabhupada then said, ‘The only reason why you think the daytime dream is more real than the nighttime dream is that you send more time awake.'” “I cannot think of anything small, that is my disease. Everything must be big.” One day Prabhupada said, “I’ve given you this big ISKCON movement. If you can, please expand it.” He said, “At least maintain it. Don’t let this decrease.” Then he said, “Please cooperate,” as he said so many times before. And then Prabhupada started to cry. Everyone in the room started crying. That was probably the most painful moment of my life, to see Prabhupada cry. So we have this movement. It’s Prabhupada’s movement. We have the good, we have the bad, and we have the ugly. But we just have to be determined to never leave the ISKCON movement. We just have to always try to push it forward. If there’s a problem, push it forward. Because when you leave ISKCON, you make Prabhupada cry. So let’s make Prabhupada happy and push on Krishna consciousness to every town and village. “As Krishna gave us Srimad-Bhagavatam, which has all kinds of stories about Him so that we can develop not just knowledge of Him and His teachings, but also an attraction for His personality, similarly, by hearing these beautiful stories about Srila Prabhupada, we can love Srila Prabhupada. Prabhupada explains that unless there is love, we cannot fix the mind. We cannot fix the mind on something we don’t love. So we must love Srila Prabhupada. And one of the ways to love him is to hear about him. The stories we hear are significant because they teach us the heart of the pure devotee and the concerns of the pure devotee. And they can melt our reluctance to surrender.” “?It’s like having Srila Prabhupada’s association again. Not only is it a living testimony of the remarkable transcendental personality of Srila Prabhupada, but we are also reminded of the wonderful association of our God brothers. These remembrances make our short time with Srila Prabhupada seem so real and personal. We are reminded again and again that not only was he the Founder-Acarya, but also our loving father and humorous best friend. The association of a pure devotee is exceedingly rare and unique. Whatever we can do to capture the experience for future generations is an invaluable service.” “?If we look at ISKCON as Prabhupada’s body, and we’re all helping to carry that body, we all have to cooperate in order that Prabhupada’s not inconvenienced at any point. We have to really work together. It doesn’t matter about our size, shape, when we came, what our different services might be – they all have to be coordinated in such a way that as Prabhupada’s movement grows, Prabhupada’s not inconvenienced to the point where he becomes upset by the way we act and treat each other.”
