Original Back to Godhead Magazines now at Back2Godhead.com

Please visit this new website:


Already there are over 100 great articles from Srila Prabhupada’s original pre-1977 Back to Godhead magazines with all the beautiful color photos. These are much better than any articles I could write!!

I am finding these BTG magazines very inspiring and encouraging and I want to share them with you also.

Reading these BTG’s puts you right there with Srila Prabhupada and his disciples when the Hare Krishna movement was exploding all over the world in the 60’s and 70’s.

It was a very exciting time and we can experience that excitement now again by reading the original BTG magazines.

I am updating Back2Godhead.com with a new original issue of Back to Godhead magazine every day so please visit the site every day for the next few months and read the articles and I can guarantee that you will become very inspired in Krishna consciousness. Just imagine, ten new wonderful and inspiring articles on Krishna consciousness every day!

I can not express how inspiring these magazines are for me and I am sure you will also experience the same pleasure by reading the articles.

Srila Prabhupada’s has a very grand plan for his Back to Godhead magazine:

Believe me or not, I have got the clue of going “Back to Godhead” just after leaving my present material body and in order to take along with me all my contemporary men and women of the world, I have started my paper “Back to Godhead” as one of the means to the way.”

“BACK TO GODHEAD can direct the right way of such happiness even in the material field by the simple adjustment of re-establishing our lost relation with Godhead. We wish that people may kindly read this paper for some time with due attention and critical gravity. We are always prepared to answer any relevant question in this regard from any quarter who may be seeking after the Absolute Truth.”

“In that book post you will find one copy of my theistic fortnightly paper BACK TO GODHEAD broadcasting exclusively everything about the Supreme Personality of Godhead. These topics about Godhead are delineated in a manner for understanding of any common man and it is high time that people of the world should now know about the Supreme Truth when they have had tried enough and failed in the matter of establishing peace in the world by so much attempt.”

The BACK TO GODHEAD magazines published by Srila Prabhupada personally between 1944 and 1964, then by his disciples between 1966 and 1977 are an absolute ocean of nectar and a great source of inspiration and knowledge about Krishna consciousness presented in a very attractive and easy to comprehend way.

To enable the people to experience this great treasure of BACK TO GODHEAD magazines published personally by Srila Prabhupada and then published by his disciples under his personal direction, we have established this website:


There you will find many editions of Prabhupada’s original BACK TO GODHEAD magazines with all the beautiful color photos and amazing artwork. We will be adding a new issue of Prabhupada’s original BACK TO GODHEAD magazine every day until they are all available there.

Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

About the Author

My first contact with a Hare Krishna was a most merciful Mataji in Oxford Street, London who sold me a "Higher Taste" cook book in 1984 while I was on holidays there. I started seriously reading Srila Prabhupada's books in Australia 1985 and by 1986 Srila Prabhupada had convinced me "Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead" and "we should surrender to Krishna." I joined the Hare Krishnas in Perth, Western Australia in 1986. Since then I have been chanting Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare, reading and distributing Srila Prabhupada's books and preaching as much as I can. That's my life and full-time occupation now really. I like it more than anything I've ever experienced before. Srila Prabhupada's books are so amazing... Even after reading them all many times they're still fresh and new. They are truly transcendental! That's it really. Now I'm just hankering to once again see the world chant Hare Krishna, dance and feast and float away in the ecstasy of Lord Caitanya's Sankirtana movement as it did in Srila Prabhupada's physical presence. Let the whole world drown in the ecstatic flood of love of Krishna!

    I am trying to remember the title of Dr. OBL Kapoor’s article on Bhakti that changed my life: published in BTG 1975 with picture on the cover of Sri Krishna & calf

    Hare Krishna Madhudvisa Dasa,

    Do you know where I can get physical copies of the Back2Godhead magazines? I would like copies of all of them.

    Thank you for great service,


    • Only there are PDF copies. How can you get physical copies of 50 year old magazines? Unless you can purchase them second hand from some devotee who has collected them.

      Some devotees have a collection of them.

      All the PDF files are on Back2Godhead.com

      • Pirasan Bhaskaran says:

        I was hoping they reprinted those old ones.

        Thanks though, I’ll download the PDF ones.

    I want to know whether the universe is managed by one god or many gods?

    • Hare Krishna

      Universe is managed by the demigods on behalf of Krishna, one God. There is only one Supreme Lord, Krishna, but He expands into many, we are also all expansions of Krishna, so Krishna also expands as the demigods, who are living entities like us, but who are empowered by Krishna to take the responsibility of different areas of universal management. So there are demigods managing every aspect of the universe. Like Indra is controlling the rainfall, Suriya is controlling the sun, Varuna is controlling the oceans, etc. So all aspects of the material world are managed by the demigods who are representatives of and who are empowered by Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Krishna does not directly have any connection with the management of the material world, but indirectly, through His empowered agents, the demigods, He is controlling everything.

    Prabhu! All glories to your blissful mega, mega book distribution program….
    It is so, so blissful!!!!!! Let everyone be engaged in book distribution…

    Prabhu…one doubt. When someone takes a book from you, do you give a card to them? …containing your name, website , email-id…, etc?. What I do is , I give them a paper, containing 3 websites, krishna.org, prabhupadaboooks.com, krishnastore.in. But lately, something struck me. If I give them so many websites (3 websites) , they may not go to any of them….So is it that I should give them only 1 website? If so….which website? Please tell me Prabhu?

    Do you think krishna.org is best….because it contains the link to krishnastore.in at the top and if they want something they may write to you, right?

    Prabhu, I shall always remain indebted to you for starting my book distribution program. How can I express the bliss!!!!

    Again, please do not display this comment on this page, but just show the reply.

    Thank you Prabhu!

    • Hare Krishna Rukmini

      It is wonderful to hear you are so happy distributing Srila Prabhupada’s Books!

      Yes. I have a card with the same three websites on it as yours. And I think giving 3 websites is OK.

      We will soon have new reasonably priced cases of books available in India. Science of Self-Realization, Perfection of Yoga, Beyond Birth and Death, Easy Journey to Other Planets, Perfect Questions — Perfect Answers, Life Comes From Life and Search for Liberation. Should be available within a month!

      • Transport says:

        That is very good news! I wanted to ask something, if you don’t mind. Is it also possible to send one box each of Raja Vidya (softbound) and Isopanisad(hardbound) each to India too? I will need it 4-5 months but not immediately. If yes, then I’ll again confirm which 2 boxes I’m asking for..

        So if possible, please do send them also,otherwise there is the horrible customs problem.

        • Hare Krishna Rukmini

          If you just wait a few weeks we will have cases of:

          Perfection of Yoga
          Beyond Birth and Death
