Prabhupada Enjoys the Govindam Record Album

The record is so nice that I am playing it at least once in a day and it is giving me transcendental pleasure with tears in my eyes. I am sure this record will be the first-class hit as already opined by the experts.

Los Angeles 8 March, 1970

My Dear Syamasundara.,

Please accept my blessings. I beg to acknowledge receipt of your letter dated 3 March, 1970, along with the “Govindam” record.

The record is so nice that I am playing it at least once in a day and it is giving me transcendental pleasure with tears in my eyes. I am sure this record will be the first-class “hit” as already opined by the experts.

Certainly this has has come out so successful because of George’s sincere effort in Krsna Consciousness. I am so pleased that he is advancing towards perfectional stage of Krsna Consciousness; and your association will greatly help. Try to convince him to avoid the four principles of sinful life and chant Hare Krsna mantra as much as possible, then he will find everything is successful in his life.

I think on account of this record, many people, at least from different parts of Europe, will come to see our Temple. Many tourists also may come there. So you do not take it as gloomy, but you should welcome them in our Temple. Regularly try to sell our books and magazines to them. So far taking away the shoes is concerned, you can make the following arrangement: just after the entrance door, arrange for a movable railing so that anyone willing to enter the Temple room, but who does not like to take of his shoes, may be allowed to enter th room, but who does not like to take of his shoes, may be allowed to enter the door but stand near the railing and see the Deity from that place. Anyone willing to go inside the railing boundary must have to get out of his shoes. And exactly by the side of the Altar another railing may be fixed up. This railing should stand between the Vyasasana and the Altar.

So anyone who may come must be well received, informed about our activities, and when we publish a little pamphlet which is in preparation, it may also be distributed to each and every one of the visitors.

I have not heard anything from you about the small leaflet to be prepared for putting along with the “Govindam” records. Are you preparing it or not? or do you think it is necessary or not?

The next song you may record isJaya Jagadisa Hare:

Kesava dhrta dasabidha rupa
Jaya Jagadisa Hare

And we shall make a children’s book with ten pictures of Krsna’s different appearances (Dasavatara.) and a short story or explanation for each. Now we have just received part of the manuscript of an abridged version of KRSNA especially meant for children.

Hope this will meet you in good health.

Your ever well-wisher,
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

    Prabhu, can you give me a link to download this song?

  3. Aman says:

    Hare Krishna!
    All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
    All glories to all the devotees who made this beautiful song, especially Yamuna mataji.

    I’m thinking of playing this song in my sister’s marriage which is on 17th April. I have one more song in my mind, that is Hare Krishna sung by Srila Prabhupada alone which plays in “The Final Lesson’ video. Can anyone recommend me any other Krishna Consciousnes songs which I can play in the marriage?

    Radhy radhy guru ji….
    Well thanks for the newsletters. It is very informative and answers many questions. But one thing can we really continue with our work and devotional service together? Like if these material things are not going to benifit in any ways and moreover it will deviate us from devotional service then it will not be better if we leave it? Another ques is that u have written that Krishna is the original Vishnu but I read somewhere that Krishna is the original form of supreme personality of Godhead and Vishu, Shiv and Brahma are the expansion of Krishna.
    Radhy radhy..

      Yes. We have to continue some material work to maintain the body. Generally it is not recommended that we change our position. Rather that we add Krishna consciousness and remain in our current position. If you read Srila Prabhupada’s books you will learn how to do this.

      Krishna is the original Supreme Personality of Godhead and Visnu and everyone else is an expansion of Krishna. There are different types of expansions but ultimately Krishna is the origin and everyone else is an expansion of Krishna.

      Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

    hare krishna,
    im taking this resolution for the new year 2011- I WILL CHANT 16 ROUNDS DAILY.
    i know it is very difficult for me. but i really want to chant 16 rounds daily. i will try my level best. i will get up early and chant and in between study time i ll take small breaks and chant. i need krishna’s and prabhupada’s causeless mercy. i have tried this many times but i have failed to chant 16 after a few days. but this time i want to put all my strength and intelligence into chanting 16 rounds daily. plz pray for me. hari bol…

    • Jennie Walsh says:

      How many are 16 rounds? Does that mean 108 times done 16 times? That would take up most of the day.

      • It takes 2-3 hours after you are practiced. There are 24 hours in the day. So 2-3 or even 4 hours out of every day for chanting Hare Krishna is not much. And it is very enjoyable. Chanting Hare Krishna is like breathing for devotees. We die without it.
