Don’t Depend on the Internet for Your Access to Srila Prabhupada!!

Today many devotees depend on the internet for accessing Srila Prabhupada’s books and audio and video recordings. This is very dangerous.

Gradually, day by day, the internet is becoming more and more controlled and the information we see is what the big tech companies want us to see, no longer what we want to see. And big tech companies don’t want us hearing from Srila Prabhupada about Krishna.

There was a time when search engines would show us the websites we were looking for, but now they often hide the websites they know we want to see and show us the sites they want us to see… There was a time when the big video sharing platforms would show us the videos we wanted to see, but now, instead, they try to get us to watch the videos they want us to watch…

The way the interente works is subtly and gradually changing, it is transforming from a searcable repository of the world’s information to a very controlled system feeding us the content it’s controllers want us to see.

So the bottom line is it is getting more and more difficult to access Srila Prabhupada and Krishna conscious material on the internet. And it is only a question of time, as the controllers of the internet tighten things up more and more, our access to Prabhuapda on the internet will be cut off.

Even if we manage to somehow find a Prabhupada video on YouTube, for example, there will be so many inturruptions and advertisments, then the next video that they try to get us to watch will not be a Prabhupada video, they will try and distract us, move us into some completely different thing, even if it is still spiritual it will be some mayavadi or bogus philosophy… So…


The internet as we know it today is a very temporary thing. At any moment, the internet can transform into something different and we can wake up tomorrow in a completely new reality where it is no longer possible to access anything on the internet except the programming the controllers want us to consume…

Any day we could wake up and find that there is no longer anything from Srila Prabhupada available on the internet. Krishna consciousness could be considered inappropriate material and no longer appear in the search engines, all the Prabhupada videos could disappear, all the Krishna conscious websites could disappear, all the Krishna conscious apps could be uninstalled from your devices overnight.

This is a real possibality. And that is why we at KrishnaStore.com put so much effort and energy into distributing physical printed hard-copy original Prabhuapda books. And I humbly suggest if you do not already have a complete collection of Srila Prabhupada’s original books in physical hard copy form, please purchase them NOW:

Click Here for Prabhupada’s Books

We have almost all of Srila Prabhupada’s books in stock, available to ship, now. But they are in limited quantities and there is no guarantee we will have them in the future.

So please do not think you can depend on any internet website or app on your phone for accessing the teachings of Srila Prabhupada. That can be cut off at any moment. We all need to have Srila Prabhupada’s physical books and we all need to have all of Prabhupada’s audio, his classes, morning walks, room conversations, kirtans, etc, in a physical format that we actually own.

For that purpose please make sure you have the Prabhupada Audio and Video USB sticks:

Prabhupada Audio & Video USB Sticks

There are four USB sticks on this page and they are ALL ESSENTIAL. If you get these four USB sticks then you will have ALL the known Prabhupada audio recordings. All of his classes, kirtans, bhajans, purports, morning walks, interviews, press conferences, etc. And you will own the recordings. You will have actual physical copies of all the Prabhuapda audio in your own hands. There is so much nectar. I can not explain.

This is an incredible complete collection of Prabhupada Audio and Video, with 3,877 recordings, a total of more than 2,360 hours of high-quality original Prabhuapda audio!

Every recording has very convenient MP3 tags so when you load the files into any audio player on any of your devices you can very easily locate and select exactly what you want to hear.

It is so essential, these days, that every devotee must have all of Prabhupada’s original physical printed books in their possession and physical actual copies of his audio and video recordings.

Prabhupada is living in sound, but we have to be able to access that sound to appreciate that Prabhupada is living

Devotees who are depending on the internet for their access to Prabhupada, can be suddenly cut off from Prabhupada at any moment. Or they can be distracted from Prabhupada and sent down so many distracting paths because the nature of the internet is to distract us from Krishna consciousness. It is not a very safe thing, to try and hear from Prabhupada on the internet, because on the internet maya is always just one click away.

Anyhow, this is my humble, heartfelt request to you. Please get physical copies of all of Srila Prabhupada’s original books and all his audio and video recordings on physical USB sticks.

The files on the USB sticks are very standard audio (MP3) and video (MP4) files that will play on almost any device these days. You can load the files onto your phone and hear Prabhupada undisturbed without needing any internet connection and you will be completely free and undisturbed in your personal association with Srila Prabhupada…

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 Krishna Madhudvisa prabhu, all glories to Srila Prabhupada!

    Thank you for writing this. Over the decades I have watched as the promises and benefits of the internet have been corrupted by companies and governments. As you said, we cannot rely on being able to access the word of Srila Prabhupada online forever.

    Another thing to beware of is people using the recent developments in artificial intelligence to clone Prabhupada’s voice and even likeness to create fake or altered audio or video for nefarious ends. For example: don’t agree with female guru’s? Well ‘someone’ just found a missing audio tape of Prabhupada giving his full blessing.

    They have edited his books against his explicit instruction. Editing his spoken word may be next.

    • Yes.

      But we have preserved everything already. So there is nothing more to discover.

      So it is OK, we have Prabhupada’s original books, all his original audio recordings, all his video recordings. They are already preserved. That is why we are so anxious to keep Prabhupada’s original books in print and distribute them widely. The original printed books are the best guarantee that Srila Prabhupada’s teachings will be preserved faithfully for the future.
