Srila Prabhupada’s Delhi Bhagavatam PDF Download
Before coming to the United States in 1965 Srila Prabhupada had translated and printed the first canto of Srimad-Bhagavatam in three 400 page hard-cover volumes. Prabhupada did not come to America empty handed. He came with his books. The PDF files attached to this article are made from very rare original volumes that Srila Prabhupada brought with him from India.
During the first year he spent in the United States Srila Prabhupada supported himself by selling his Srimad-Bhagavatam sets through book stores in New York City and also directly to the people he met and was preaching to.
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!
Please accept my humble obeisances,
All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
I have just downloaded Srila Prabhupada’s Delhi Bhagavatam, and I have also been reading a little of It.
When I was a young devotee I had three books which were Canto one in three volumes.
Unfortunately I was very generous at that time and so after I had enjoyed reading Them I distributed them so others could also enjoy Them.
I have not seen These books in your collection. Have you ever heard of Them?
The Delhi collection appear to have brown covers and to have Sanskrit writing inside, but as far as I remember the books which I had were different. They had a picture on the cover, and I think there was no Sanskrit writing inside. Actually it was so long ago that I do not fully remember Them. But I do remember Them making me very happy.
I am just wondering if you have ever heard of Them before.
Your very grateful admirer
Srila Prabhuapda’s Delhi Bhagavatam was reprinted about 10 years ago, but sold out long ago. So currently it is unavailable, out of print. You have to get the books when they are in print.
Hare Krishna! Thank you for giving this softcopy of first three Cantos of Srimad Bhagavatham, which going to be useful for all!
Knowledge increses after distributing. I believe in. Thanks from my heart.
Very grateful to the presenters of this site, may Lord krsna bless them all.
It is a great delight to see the full text of original three volumes of Srimad Bhagwatam, the mere site of these rare volumes is great spiritual delight. In addition are the photographs of Srila Prabhupad.
Lucky to have access to all these.
This is an amazing pdf, considering the rarity of these volumes! I was wondering also, the ISKCON award-winning author Yamuna Devi’s original manuscript for “The Art of Indian Vegetarian Cooking” was cut by about 200 recipes, for the sake of space. Would it be possible for you to post that original manuscript?
We don’t have the original manuscript of it…
It would be very kind of you if you made the scans available also for the Krishna Book volumes, The Science of Self-realization, and in fact all the other small original books. The main books are now done (SB, BG, CC), so might as well do it also for ALL the remaining original prints too.
We are working on it…
Hare Krishna prabhuji!
Dandavats & All glories to Srila Prabhupada!!
