Hare Krishna! Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
I would like to let you know that Srila Prabhupada’s original 1972 Bhagavad-gita As It Is Complete Edition has been reprinted in a beautiful full-sized edition with the original cover and 48 original color plates. The printing and paper are first-class.
Srila Prabhupada said: “I am encouraged that he is taking interest in selling our Bhagavad-gita As It Is. You may all try to distribute this book as far as possible and it will be a great service to our movement. If any sincere person reads this book I think that he will be impressed by the solid footing on which our Krishna Consciousness is based. All of the nonsense Bhagavad-gitas that deny Krishna are simply bluffs so if one is intelligent he is sure to get some inkling of the authorized nature of our Krishna Conscious philosophy. So try to promote sales as far as you are able and Krishna will surely help you in this important endeavor.” (Srila Prabhupada in a letter to Aniruddha)
This is the exact same book that Srila Prabhupada gave all of his Bhagavad-gita classes on since it was printed in 1972. It is the book Srila Prabhupada himself personally read almost daily. This book has been practically unavailable since 1983 when the BBT replaced it with their new “Revised and Enlarged” edition which contains more than five thousand changes.
So many devotees have been anxious to see Srila Prabhupada’s original Bhagavad-gita As It Is back in print, and now it has been printed.
Now we need your help. We are humbly requesting you to take the responsibility of distributing at least one case of ten of Srila Prabhupada’s original Bhagavad-gita’s to your friends, family and the people you meet over the next few weeks or months. Srila Prabhupada has told us so many times what a valuable service to Krishna it is to distribute his books:
“Any way we can distribute our books is good because anyone who reads our KRSNA book, TLC, NOD, and Bhagavad-gita As It Is, is sure to become a Krishna Conscious person. It is a most valuable service to Krishna to distribute these books.” (Srila Prabhupada in a letter to Damodar)We need your help to distribute these books
In an attempt to make Srila Prabhupada’s original Bhagavad-gita As It Is easily available again to the devotees and the general public cases of ten Gitas are currently available at the printing cost only. It is such a beautiful book and will sell in book stores for thirty to forty dollars.
I am sure you will meet at least ten people who would be more than glad to give you a twenty dollar donation or more for one of these beautiful books over the next month or so. So you will not be the looser in any way. You will get Krishna’s blessings and Srila Prabhupada’s blessings and the people you distribute the Bhagavad-gita’s to will make great spiritual advancement and will surely come to Krishna consciousness sooner or later. And you will even make some financial profit as well which you could use for future preaching projects.
So we need your to help distribute these books
and I am asking you to please order at least one case of Gitas.
You can order right now on-line through our secure and very simple fast credit-card processing service. It will take only a minute or two.
“I am very glad that you understand the importance of these books. Let us try to distribute them far and wide, as many as possible, and that is solid spiritual information or real preaching work. We stand on our Krishna philosophy, and because it has the full potency of Krishna Himself, there is no limit to the effect it will have upon the world if we remain sincere and convinced for spreading this philosophy purely.” (Srila Prabhupada in a letter to Bahulasva)
Looking forward to receiving your order soon. All glories to your service. Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!Your servant

About the Author
Madhudvisa dasa 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!
what is best price on 2 cases GITAS/ is it still $2 per copy, 40 to a case? shipping destination is SPOKANE WASHINGTON, ASAP
We have two options available at the moment:
is doing charity or helping the suffering ones a crime?
It is pious activity, activity in the mode of goodness. So it is not a crime. But from the spiritual point of view you can not actually help the suffering ones in this way. You have to understand that if you think you can change a persons situation in life like this you are mistaken. We are all experiencing the reactions to our karma. If we have performed sinful activities in the past we will suffer now as a result of that, and if we have performed pious activities in the past we will enjoy now as a reaction to that. So you can not change this situation. If a person is suffering you can not stop that suffering. You may be able to minimize the suffering in one way but then the suffering will come back in another way because the people have to suffer because of their karma.
The real solution to this suffering is to awaken the people’s dormant Krishna consciousness. Because when one becomes a devotee of Krishna and starts chanting Hare Krishna that destroys the seeds of this suffering that are stored up in our hearts and that will actually change the situation.
So these mundane welfare programs are useless and do not actually help anyone in the long run. It is pious work and there are so many organizations doing it, but devotees are not interested in this sort of mundane pious activity. They are interested in giving Krishna consciousness by the distribution of prasadam, the chanting of the Hare Krishna mantra congregationally and the distribution of Srila Prabhupada’s books…

I will surely order a few boxes before I return from India, so I can go out immediately when I return back home, back to Norway. And it will not be Norway anymore, it will be Vaikuntha-loka. Harinam and sankirtan with Prabhupada’s books, that’s the best!
