srila-prabhupada-writting-2We are releasing for the first time scanned copies of Srila Prabhupada’s original letters. We do not have all the original letters, we have a few thousand of them, and hope that in the future Bhaktivedanta Archives will release scans of all the original Prabhupada letters.

So by downloading the PDF files below you can see and read the actual original letters that Srila Prabhupada sent to his disciples and others.

This is an on-going program and we will add the additional letters here as they are available.

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!

  1. Hare Krishna dandvat pranam prabhuji today the iskcon is not following the prabhupad’s initiation system i.e rtvik system and I just want to know is there other letter than July 19 ,1977 related to initiation in future? And secondary why iskcon don’t admit and try to hide and say that those who are following rtvik system are mayavadi’s is the condition same in foreign iskcon as they are in India means not following Prabhupada initiation system

    • Yes. Everywhere in ISKCON the biggest crime, the greatest “mayavadi philosophy” is to surrender to Srila Prabhupada and serve him. That is the greatest heresy in ISKCON…

      Today’s ISKCON is VERY DIFFERENT from Prabhupada’s ISKCON. Prabhupada’s idea is to surrender to bona fide spiritual master and Krishna.

      Today’s ISKCON’s idea is to surrender to GBC, who they admit are conditioned souls, and gurus in ISKCON are simply representatives of the GBC, presenters of the teachings of the GBC…

      So today’s ISKCON rejects Prabhupada and Krishna and anyone who actually wants to surrender to Prabhupada and Krishna. It is useless, a disconnected branch of the Caitanya tree.

    It’s been too long since I have been putting aside the task of reading Srila Prabhupada’s letters, not realizing their immense importance. But today I’m downloading them all.

    I was wondering if you also have the original letters of the years 1976 and 1977?

    Hari Bol Prabhu, Please accept my pranams, All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

    For example the archives of 1974, I see that there are letters untill 24 april 1974 but then may 1st starts. However on Prabhupadabooks.com there are alot more letters between 24 april 1974 and 1 may 1974. Are the originals not avialable?

    Hare Krishna,


    • Yes. We only have a small number of the letters. And that is only because some great soul smuggled copies of them out of Bhaktivedanta Archives. Bhaktivedanta Archives have all of Prabhupada’s letters locked up, and apart from the 500 or so that we got smuggled out of their prison, other letters are still locked up by Bhaktivedanta archives…
