Original KRSNA BOOK Back In Print!! PLEASE help Distribute it!

Srila Prabhupada's original Krsna--The Supreme Personality of Godhead [Krsna Book] has been reprinted by the North American BBT in conjunction with Krishna Books Inc. in two beautiful huge hard-cover 7" x 10" volumes with the original cover and all the original 132 color plates [84 in Vol 1 & 48 in Vol 2!].

Srila Prabhupada said: "In my heart I want that KRSNA book in small or large form, should be distributed in every home who are English-speaking people." (Letter to Karandhar in 1971)

This is the same book Prabhupada convinced George Harrison to donate the printing costs for and the same book that convinced thousands and thousands of devotees to dedicate their lives to Krishna and Srila Prabhupada. It is the exact same book Srila Prabhupada himself personally read almost daily. This book has been practically unavailable since 1983 when the BBT replaced it with their new "Revised and Enlarged" edition which contains thousands of unauthorized changes.

So many devotees have been anxious to see Srila Prabhupada's original Krsna Book back in print, and now it has been printed.

"We have published. It will come very soon. Krsna Book. Full of activities of the Lord, in two volumes of four hundred pages. So simply if you read and hear the activities, either read or hear you get liberation, simply by reading. You have got a tendency for reading book or hearing about somebody, but, generally, for our sense gratification we hear some man and woman making love affairs, and that is the subject matter of a drama or a fiction or a story. The same tendency, if you transfer for hearing about Krsna, you get liberation. It is so nice thing. And you'll find so attractive to read about the activities of the Lord that you cannot leave the book. Krsna Book. If you go on reading, you'll find at times some philosophical topics, but the story is so attractive. Because God, Krsna is so attractive, His activities are also attractive." (From one of Srila Prabhupada's lectures in Los Angeles, 1972)

Now we need your help. We are humbly requesting you to take the responsibility of distributing at least five sets of Srila Prabhupada's original Krsna Book to your friends, family and the people you meet over the next few weeks or months. Srila Prabhupada has told us so many times what a valuable service to Krishna it is to distribute his books:

"Any way we can distribute our books is good because anyone who reads our KRSNA book, TLC, NOD, and Bhagavad-gita As It Is, is sure to become a Krishna Conscious person. It is a most valuable service to Krishna to distribute these books." (Srila Prabhupada in a letter to Damodar)

We need your help to distribute these books.

In an attempt to make Srila Prabhupada's original Krsna Book easily available again to the devotees and the general public cases of five sets [ten books] of Krsna Book are currently available at the wholesale cost only which comes out to just $5.90 a book. The Krsna Book set is so beautiful and would sell in book stores for thirty to forty dollars.

I am sure you will meet at least five people who would be more than glad to give you a twenty dollar donation or more for one of these beautiful Krsna Book sets over the next month or so. So you will not be the looser in any way. You will get Krishna's blessings and Srila Prabhupada's blessings and the people you distribute the Krsna Books to will make great spiritual advancement and will surely come to Krishna consciousness sooner or later. And you will even make some financial profit as well which you could use for future preaching projects.

So we need your to help distribute these Krsna Books and I am asking you to please order at least one case of five two volume sets [10 books] for only $59.00. Within the USA your order will be delivered by UPS for $19.50 and international orders will be sent via the US Post Office M-Bag service at no extra charge.

"I am very glad that you understand the importance of these books. Let us try to distribute them far and wide, as many as possible, and that is solid spiritual information or real preaching work. We stand on our Krishna philosophy, and because it has the full potency of Krishna Himself, there is no limit to the effect it will have upon the world if we remain sincere and convinced for spreading this philosophy purely." (Srila Prabhupada in a letter to Bahulasva)
