Lilamrta As It Is
Madhudvisa dasa - Krishna org.
Dear Mukunda Prabhu
Hare Krishna! Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
I have been reading your "Srila Prabhupada Lilamrta As It Is" and am almost finished. I have found it to be such a great inspiration and the best collection of Srila Prabhupada quotes so well arranged. You have found many things I do not recall reading and organized it so nicely into an autobiography of Srila Prabhupada.
I am also impressed that it does not end with the Antya-lila. Your compilation of Prabhupada's comments himself on the poison issue make it so clear that Srila Prabhupada was poisioned. I feel that the chapter on Srila Prabhupada's Antya-lila is the best, most conclusive evidence I have ever seen on the poison issue. But you go on to show that Prabhupada is still with us and still preaching and still accepting new disciples.
Nara-Narayana Prabhu is also very impressed with
the book and wants to order a case of them to distribute here in
You have really contributed something of great value with this book and it will become more and more appreciated as the years go on, I am sure of that.
You have a great skill for finding the Prabhupada quotes and arranging them and you obviously have a very deep understanding of Srila Prabhupada's mission.
I met Jaya Krsna Prabhu a couple of weeks ago in Berkely. He said that he had stayed with you a few times and was full of praise for you and your work there.
Hope you and your family are well and happy in
Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

Place orders for copies of Mukunda's wonderful presentation of Srila Prabhupada's lifestory in HDG's own words (Vani) , softbound, 400 pages, with colour plates.
ALL nectar of Srila Prabhupada's own lifestory self-told. Only words by His Divine Grace. No speculation, no jumping over Sri GURU, no imaginative [and constipative] imagery, metaphor, conjecture, and froglike 'insight.' NO aparadha, no attempt to become famous, become worshiped, become "most humble," And etc.Only divine nectar emanating from Srila Prabhupada's lotus mouth:
"MY ONLY WISH IS TO HAVE MY CONSCIOUSNESS PURIFIED BY THE WORDS EMANATING FROM HIS LOTUS MOUTH."
THIS IS THE SINGULARLY MOST IMPORTANT WORK TO COME OFF THE PRESS SINCE SRI BHAGAVAD-GITA AS IT IS.
THIS 'AS IT IS' PRESENTATION OF SRILA PRABHUPADA'S LIFE, WISDOM AND SUPREME SACRIFICE FOR THE HIGHEST WELFARE OF HUMAN SOCIETY (AND ALL OTHER LIFE FORMS), HAS POTENTIAL TO REVOLUTIONIZE THE WORLD, AND INSPIRE ALL SOULS TO AGAIN STRIVE TO WORSHIP THE NECTAREAN LOTUS FEET OF HIS DIVINE GRACE ABHAYA CARANARAVINDA BHAKTIVEDANTA SWAMI PRABHUPADA MAHARAJA.
Let us all offer our sincere thanks and gratitude to Sriman Mukunda Adhikari Prabhu, and his dearmost wife, Srimati Indira Devi, for their one-pointed attention, ie. chastity to the most important Yajna of re-presenting Srila Prabhupada's perfect, pure, and infallible teachings for the benefit of the world.
I am truly humbled by this their inconceivable contribution to the propagation of Prabhupada-Consciousness, and we are sure that once the devotees of SP's bona fide Krishna Consciousness Movement inspect this book for its bona fides, they will shed tears of gratefulness, realizing this was the one book that was missing from their lives and its presence alone can give them renewed hope to trace out the footprints of Srila Prabhupada back to Home.
We have no real blessing to offer Mukunda and his better half for this causeless presentation of sublime mercy-nectar of Srila Prabhupada's most treasured Vani-Association, but if we could offer such a benediction it would be that this transcendental storehouse of Prabhupada Graciousness will become an instant best seller amongst devotee and aspiring devotee alike.
Srila Prabhupada has personally informed Mukunda Prabhu the day before the book came off the press that His own Spiritual Master is pleased "My Guru Maharaja is very pleased. As soon as a book comes out, he is pleased." This indicates that Srila Prabhupada Himself is pleased; therefore, we can only predict that the entire Vaisnava Community is inconceivably pleased, as Srila Prabhupada is the only true friend of all humble and meek devotees. Thus this book is already famous and life-giving, since it's the same perfection as all of Srila Prabhupada's Books; and this one is truly unique at the same time; and we can visualize that soon the saying will be:
'That book is the nectar for which we have been hankering lifetime after lifetime; let us enjoy, now that [it has 'arrived' and] we have been given opportunity to again cross over the threshold of the House of Bhakti-Vedanta That it signifies and glorifies. . . .'

PAMHO!AGTSP! Thank you for the book it made me feel very happy, showed it to many devotees that day and they all wanted a copy, some ISKCON devotees saw it and even they wanted a copy. Krsna Kisore was harassing me for my copy so I gave to him and shall have to wait until the other copies arrive, when are they coming? Looks like there will be a big demand for these books, it is really first class.
Your Servant Hari Katha dasa. HARE KRSNA!

It arrived this in this morning's post and it is BEAUTIFUL! A true 'GEM' in every sense of the word! Really - in our trying-to-be-humble opinions, you have nothing to worry about here! It looks, and indeed is, a complete glorification of His Divine Grace, and all the effort and devotion you have put into this transcendental - but nevertheless materially arduous and taxing - task shows through. Srila Prabhupada and Lord Krsna can surely only be very happy and pleased with your monumental effort. The more so, because you undertook it almost single-handed. Well, now it's out and must be distributed to as many souls as possible -the more so because the words emanate direct from source, i.e. from Prabhupada's own lips, and can therefore be easily verified if desired.
The emboldened 'eye-catchers' carefully extracted from each quotation are an added bonus, because if scanning through (as opposed to reading from start to finish), one can select a piece to read of especial interest. Alternatively, by reading these emboldened sections alone, they might be utilised in order to read through the book quickly - as a preliminary overview - before settling down to seriously study - and thoroughly enjoy - the nectarean earthly pastimes of our Spiritual Master.
PS Actually, we are noticing that whoever holds this book, does not want to part with it afterwards - we are having to hold on very tightly to our first preview version for fear of losing it! All glory to this service to Srila Prabhupada!

Mukunda dasa Prabhu, please accept my humble obeisances. All Glories to Srila Prabhupada.
I have a copy of your Lilamrita As IT Is. You have done valuable research and make important points in your book. I am also researching SP's autobiographical statements, and it would be helpful for me to have an electronic version of your book. Please send a CD-Rom to me in Vrindaban; I'll pay you for it in cash or kind. I have also been given a CD Rom of your website, which I also like. Keep up the good work, which I am sure is pleasing to Srila Prabhupada.
Your servant, Brahmananda dasa.

Hare Krishna! Dear Hari Katha das.
Please accept my humble obeisances; all glories to Srila Prabhupada!
The day before yesterday I went to the Purana Bazar at dr. Narottam lal Gupta clinic to inquire after the Prabhupada lilamrta as-it-is books. And Yes, at last they have arrived after more than 3 months! Of course Liladhar Gupta and family desired very much to have a copy donated to them; so the first of the ten books I have given to them. The father asked me to write a dedication in the book. I told him that I find it improper to write in a sacred book. But I have written the following on a
separate sheet of paper: "Vrindavan 20-04-02. Hare Krsna! On behalf of Hari Katha das, I, Krsna das das, present herewith a copy of the "Srila Prabhupada Lilamrta as-it-is" to dr. Liladhar Gupta, Purana Bazar, Vrindavan. Hari bol!"
Right after that I went to the quarters of Srila Prabhupada at Radha-Damodhar Mandir and have left there two copies: one for Srila Prabhupada's library and one as per your instruction for the Brazilian devotee Demian (Krsna-Kishore Prabhu will hand it to him as soon as he shows up).Yesterday, on Ram-nomi, I have given one book to the devotee in the Health-line watershop, his name is Nanda Kumar das (formerly initiated by Radha Govinda swami). Then I have given one copy to
Isani mataji for her library. And one I keep for myself of course.
I have started to read in it. You can tell Mukunda das Prabhu that he has done a very wonderful service. It is like an auto-biography written by Srila Prabhupada! Srila Prabhupada speaks out. He speaks for himself about himself. Truly a work of pure love and devotion. Fully utilizing all the space on every page to print the actual words spoken by Srila Prabhupada
himself about the mission of his live to spread Krsna-consciousness all over the world, which he has done so successfully up to the present day.
I given a copy to Krsna Kumari Mataji for Prabhupada's library of the Krsna-Katha-garden ashram. Then one copy to Saksi Gopal das from Australia who is heading up the Bhaktivedant Ivestigation Force that supports the courtcase that's going on concerning Prabhupada's poisoning ; I met him today and thought he is an excellent recipient for the Srila Prabhupada Lilamrta as-it-is. So now there are only two copies left: one is for the Russian devotee in the library whose name is Gaura-Mandala das, and the last one I'm going to give to Trilocan das, who by the end of this month will go to Nepal to make a passport.
I hope this meets you well and happy in devotional service; Hari bol!
Your servant, Krsna das das.

Haribol ji, PAMHO. AGTSP.
I am reading your compliation every day on the train to work and am having many realizations about Srila Prabhupada's divinely empowered status with each page that I read. Anyone who dares to view Srila Prabhupada from a relativist or materialistic platform will be severely chastised after reading this book! It is the perfect antidote to all previous poisonous speculations about His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.
Jaya! Ys, Deepak

Dear Mukunda Prabhu, Pamho. AGTSP.
I just wanted to let you know the Bhagavad Gita and the Prabhupada Lilamrta arrived this morning. It is such a beautifull book!! A feast for the eye. I started reading right away and I can't put it down for a moment. Very well done, Prabhu.

PLEASE SEND TWO MORE BOOKS VIA AIRMAIL ASAP, if you can. I will pay you later. A man helping us with all legal work saw the book last night and demanded a copy. He knows the whole story, and he believes this book is the key to exposing the ISGONE malaise and enticing the public to hear the real true story, FROM PRABHUPADA'S OWN [LOTUS] MOUTH [!!]
I TOLD HIM WE'D GIVE HIM A BOOK FREELY, SINCE HE HAD HELPED US SO MUCH; THIS RELIEVED HIM, ESP. BECAUSE HE WANTED OUR ONLY COPY. i was surprised at his enthusiasm!!!
I really should have one for the AP lady too. i tell you, prabhu, it's quite possible i can get 'your' PRABHUPADA BOOK well publicized; this would be the biggest break we might ever get.
I can feel the potency of this book and what could transpire soon because of it. Please send two more today; i will try to reciprocate by at least sending you a nice batch of freshly made burfi today via airmail.
Your servant and well-wishing friend, sanat dasa
P.S. Our friend was impressed with our family being mentioned in the acknowledments section!
THIS BOOK WILL SINGLE-HANDEDLY CREATE A REVOLUTION IN THE IMPIOUS LIVES OF WE MISDIRECTED 'DEVOTEES'
Mukunda Prabhu, please accept my most humble obeisances, all glories to Srila Prabhupada.I write to say thankyou for publishing a real biography of Srila Prabhupada, it is certainly needed. Satsvarupa's Lilamrita is compiled in a most offensive manner in direct contravention of sastric law that Sri Guru is not presented as an ordinary man. Satsvarupa wrote as if he had a direct connection to Prabhupada's perception. Always my heart was disturbed by that book....Mukunda prabhu hope to see you soon, when I come to collect the Lilamrita......Haribol, your friend and servant...Mickey Galligan.
Prabhu...Pamho. Agtsp. Please send me the cost of shipping 10 books to Alachua, Florida, USA in US dollars. I will send you a check...thank you for this glorious service. YS Naveen
