What I did on my summer vacation

As many of you probably know, I spent much of last year at Audarya, Tripurari Maharaja's ashram in California, and at Madhuvan, his ashram in the Guanacaste province of Costa Rica. One of the things I worked on while there was an essay bringing together the external evidence we have about Srila Prabhupada's internal life. It turned into a rather long piece, and it was great fun to write.

This essay gives us access to the diverse indications given by Srila Prabhupada by which we may understand his love for Krishna.

  • Intimate stories from disciples
  • The realizations of sadhus
  • Signs from Srila Prabhupada's life
  • Srila Prabhupada's own statements.
We are offering this chance to follow the trail of Srila Prabhupada's spiritual passion and glimpse his innermost desire free online in two versions, one you can read online and one you can download as a pdf. If you find it interesting, feel free to share it with anyone you think might also find it interesting.

You may find this essay at, where you'll be given the choice to either read it online or download it. Have fun, and feel free to leave comments.

I hope you’ll find it enlivening and thought provoking. And fun!

Dear Padmapani prabhu,

Thank you for your kind words. I'm happy you're enjoying the booklet. I hope you find the rest of it as much fun to read as it was to write. And, as an editor, I can tell you that writers are always happy to have good editors. I know I did.

When you've finished, why not go to the site and leave your comments there?

Hare Krishna,

Can you please check the .pdf download link? I can't seem to download it.

d, I just downloaded it, so the link seems to work. I've sometimes found I had a problem when I used Internet Explorer. I have no idea why. Have you tried it with another browser?

Got it thanks. Yes the link does work. For some reason Firefox stopped the download if I opened a new tab.
