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!

    Hare Krsna:

    Does Krsnastore answer tickets? A wrong order was sent to me after I waited 3 weeks for it. But I can’t seem to get a reply from Customer service

    Hare Krsna

    • Yes. KrishnaStore customer support are working on it and you will receive a response from them very soon. I am very sorry for the mistake. We have put a reshipment order into our system and will be resending your order as soon as possible. We are still having some delays due to covid. India Post stopped shipping to USA at the time you placed your order, so we sent it to the US in a batch to ship from US. Somehow there was a mixup, I am very sorry for the problem. We are resending your original order right away. Please feel free to keep and use the items we send to you mistakenly.

    My husband is Locana das, the sculptor who makes Srila Prabhupada murtis in temples. We just saw the ‘Srila Prabhupada Murti 10.5″‘ listed on your website that says it is ‘Based on an original sculpture by Locan Dasa’. My husband requests you remove any reference to his name on this murti. He did not create it nor does it reflect his work in any way. Thank you for kindly removing his name from this product.

    Your servant,

    Krishnarati dasi

    • It is very nice that your husband does not want to take credit for his service. That is the mark of a true devotee. He understands that he is not working, if something wonderful comes apparently out of his work he knows it is simply Krishna inspiring him and working through him.

      • Thank you so much for your kind reply. In this case, however, my husband truly cannot take any credit for the murti because he did not actually have anything to do with its creation. I hope the artist who did create this murti receives the credit.

    Hare Krishna dear devotees. I am hoping someone can help – I recently received my order from and am very happy with it. Just one thing… the Tulsi japa bead bag I ordered has “Tulsi Maharani” written in reverse. I would like to contact Krishnastore for a replacement but am unable to open a ticket (I did not open an account when I placed the order).

    Is there an email address I can contact them at?

    Many thanks.

    • This is not customer support, but… We do KrishnaStore customer support from our helpdesk at:

      There is an email address associated with your order. You used PayPal express checkout? So you have an account with your PayPal email address. So just login with that. Click on “I forgot my password” and you will get a password reset email and you click on the link in that email and it will ask you for new password.

      So then, once you are logged in, you can submit a customer support ticket.

      If you have any problem still you can let me know here. But try to do it through not here.

      Thank you very much for your order and very sorry for the problem, we will rectify it, but try for taking to our customer support team about it. Hard for me to do everything…

      Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

    Prabhu, I’m trying to get some people to buy Srila Prabhupada’s books from by sharing the link to at least one book every day on my twitter account. Is it ok, Prabhu? I have shared a few items but I want to be sure if you approve of this?

    Brahma Samhita is not appearing in Indian KrishnaStore. I have placed a customer support request on Krishnastore. They have said that they will let me know soon after contacting with you.

    Chaitanya Charitamrta, Light of The Bhagavata along with The Hare Krishna Explosion arrived yesterday. All the Devotees at Krishnastore are very nice and supportive.

    Vaibhav Prabhu personally contacted with me on phone during shipping process of both Srimad Bhagavatam and Sri Chaitanya Charitamrta along with Krishna Book, Light of Bhagavata and Hare Krishna Explosion. Nectar of Devotion is on the way from US. I hope It will reach soon.

    Thank you very much Prabhu.
    When the Brahma Samhita will be available on Indian KrishnaStore?

    • Hare Krishna Hrisheikesh

      Very good news Prabhu. Now you have the task of reading all of Srila Prabhupada’s books. I find reading aloud is best. If you can do that then you are chanting when you are reading and you hear yourself reading. It is this chanting and hearing that are the most powerful processes that enable us to become Krishna conscious. So if you read aloud and make sure also to chant and hear all the Sanskrit and Bengali verses then there is great purification in this chanting and hearing. The intellectual understanding of the reading matter is also there, but that is secondary and will automatically come as a result of the chanting and hearing. The most important thing is to chant and hear the transcendental glories of the Lord as Srila Prabhupada has most mercifully giving them to us in his books. And then once you have heard properly yourself then you can repeat the same things you have heard to others. In this way you can become an empowered preacher and spread Krishna consciousness all over the world. But first thing is we have to become properly situated ourselves, properly hear and chant ourselves, and actually develop a taste for Krishna consciousness ourselves. We have to come to the point where we enjoy chanting Hare Krishna, we enjoy reading Prabhupada’s books, it is our recreation, it is our pleasure pastime.

      If we can ourselves get a real taste for Krishna consciousness, if we can feel real pleasure and attachment chanting Hare Krishna, then there is some hope that we may be able to help others also awaken the dormant Krishna consciousness that is within their hearts. We have to awaken in in our hearts first.

      Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

        Thank you very much Prabhu. I will always remember your instruction and follow them. I will do as you say. I will now read all of Srila Prabhupada’s books.

        Thank you for adding the Brahma Samhita on Indian KrishnaStore.

        Yours sincerely

    I thank you very much as I have received Krishna Book today and Im feeling very happy today. All the four books I requested have arrived safely to me. I requested four books and as I received them everytime I could perceive some nice changes in my heart and in the atmosphere at my home.
    Krishnastore support staff is very nice and supportive. I hope to get more and more books from Krishnastore.
    All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
    Hari bol!

    Hare Krishna Prabhuji!
    Checkout page is not opening on and on my phone. I do not know about Computer website but even when I open the ‘full wensite’ the checkout page is not opening.
    Apart from the above I have one more complaint. Why are Ganesh toy and tshirt with Lord Shiva’s picture on it being sold on krishnastore? This does not look good. Is Krishnastore not in your full control Prabhu?

    • Hare Krishna Aman

      Very sorry about the checkout problem on and thank you very much for letting me know. It should be fixed now, please try and let me know if you see any other problems.

      As far as Ganesh and Lord Shiva it is not that we are against them or hate them or anything like that. We accept them as devotees of Krishna, so seeing them as devotees of Krishna is not a problem.

      The problem is when people consider them to be equal to Krishna, so you will find also some pictures of Lord Shiva and Ganesh in Srila Prabhupada’s books. They are devotees of Krishna, they are related to Krishna as servants of Krishna.

      But we do not misunderstand that they are on the same level as Lord Krishna.

      Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

      • aman says:

        Hare Krishna Prabhuji!
        The problem is still existing. But I will keep checking patiently and let you know what is happening soon.
        Thank you very much for clearing my confusion regarding demigod devotees on Krishnastore. I hope Kord Shiva and Lord Ganesh forgive me for being rude because I’m very foolish!

        • Hare Krishna Aman

          I see the problem is still there on mobile Indian Krishna store. So for the time being I have disabled mobile Indian Krishna Store, so if you go to on your phone now you should get the desktop site and the checkout on that should, hopefully, work… Please let me know if it does not. We will try to get mobile store working properly in the next day or two. Please keep letting me know about any problem with Indian Krishna store because we want to get it working properly…

          Yes. We should not be rude to the demigods, but at the same time we should not make the mistake of thinking them to be seperate ‘gods’, competitors of Krishna. This misunderstanding is very common in India. But they are all great devotees… There is no need to worship them, worshiping them is included in worshiping Krishna, but we can offer our respects to them of course.

          • Aman says:

            Hare Krishna Prabhuji!
            Checkout is still not working on although it is the desktop site now. The checkout option is not even appearing. I will keep letting you know about it Prabhuji and I hope it starts working properly very soon.

          • is working now in the sense that we are getting some orders, but I do not know for sure if it is working properly. So please try again and let me know if you are still getting problems.

  13. Aman says:

    Hare Krishna Prabhuji!
    There is one problem on I have received the shipment emails of the four products that I ordered but on the website it says you have not placed any orders yet.

    • Hare Krishna Aman

      If you log in at:

      And make sure you are actually on, and not being redirected to, you will be able to see your order there and all the details.

      Your order is there, and we have shipped, two packages, one from Vrindavan and one from USA.

      So it is all looking good from my side.

      So please try again and let me know what is happening.

  14. Aditya Sharma says:

    Hare Krsna. I am a devotee from Chandigarh. I am not able to find Indian version of Krishna Store. Kindly send the link if possible. AGTSP.

    • There is no Indian Krishna store at the present time because of the difficulties created by the Indian government recently messing up the financial situation in India. So at this time only is available in India.

  15. Hrishikesh says:

    Hare Krishna Prabhu
    Please accept my humble obeisances
    All glories to Srila Prabhupada
    Prabhu, I have a small temple and I worship the Lotus Feet Of Lord Chaitanya but not Panca tattva.

    My temple is too small and only 2.5*3.5 inch photo fits into it but the Panca tattva acrylic stand at is 4*6 inch.

    1. Is this authorised. Will Lord Chaitanya accept my service through His Lotus feet?
    2. If it is not authorised than can I print a photo of Panca Tattva from Chaitanya Charitamrta and frame it and worship it?

    • Hare Krishna Hrshikesh

      Yes. Worshiping Lord Caitanya is very good. And yes. Printing picture of Panca-Tattva is very good and worshiping Panca-Tattva is essential. So do it. Of course Panca-Tattva is included in Lord Caitanya. But the way is we always have picture of Panca-Tattva on the alter so you should have it.

      Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!
