Skilled Editor Needed for Devotional Book

by Dayananda das

Posted February 21, 2006

I am now retired and writing Krishna-conscious material fulltime. I seek a skilled editor with expert knowledge of English grammar and prose style to help me polish a manuscript.

My project is a book-length work on the Bhagavad-gita, of which my first draft is half finished. I know some Sanskrit, have carefully studied the Bhagavad-gita and have some knowledge of Vaishnava and Indian history. Having been fortunate enough to have had several years of association with Srila Prabhupada, I began writing this book to help present his sankirtan strategies and those of his spiritual master, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur.

I hope that devotees will find the underlying message to be inspirational and supportive of ISKCON. I also attempt to convey my deep appreciation for both Sri Krishna's Sanskrit words and Srila Prabhupada's translations and purports.

I am not writing this book to make money; it is a labor of love and is written in a mood of serving Srila Prabhupada. It is my humble attempt to provide a contribution to the sankirtan movement for the coming decades -- a kind of service-and-strategy memoir.
