His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami, commonly known as Srila Prabhupada, is an unsung hero of the 21st century. This book describes his life in detail starting from his childhood and youth in the early nineteen thirties and forties to his glorious struggles and achievements in his old age. At the age of 69, Srila Prabhupada came to the United States boarding a cargo ship, following the instructions of his Guru, to help the people of the west to understand and practice the Vedic tradition. This book describes how after much struggle, his mission proved to be successful as he established the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), in 1966 in New York and saw it grow into a worldwide confederation of over 100 temples, ashrams, farm communities and cultural centers before his passing away at the age of 81 on November 14, 1977.
This book is a detailed sketch of the activities of Srila Prabhupada, which reveals the genuine and universal compassion that he carried within his heart as a pure devotee of God. We follow him in his attempts to share the message of Gita, starting from New York’s East Village to San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury, leading him to send some of his disciples to London, his going with them to establish centers in India and eventually his traveling several times all over the world. This book is meant to inspire us by helping us to derive unlimited hope, faith, and determination and sharpen our divine intellect by reflecting on the life and teachings of Swami Prabhupada.
