Rare Vaisnava Books Now Available

by Braja Das

Posted April 4, 2006

Dear All,

We are pleased to announce that a wide range of Gaudiya Vaishnava books are now available at Many of these books are rare or difficult to obtain for those living outside of India so we took up the task of making them more easily available for avid readers and serial collectors. At present we are restricting orders to those located in the US and Canada as we've found international shipping to be somewhat unreliable and expensive. The site uses secure payment methods, encrypted data transfers and we do not store credit card information, so even the most cautious shopper is assured of privacy and security.

A notable recent addition is a wonderful new translation and commentary of Sri Vishavanatha Chakravartipada's Madhurya Kadambini. This wonderful treatise on the progressive stages of bhakti is unique in its examination of the psychological states, challenges and wonderful experiences encountered by sadhakas.

Other popular titles include the only complete English translation of Bhakti Rasamrita Sindhu (by David Haberman) and also Sripad Bon Maharaja's version. We have most of OBL Kapoor's books available and several by Satya Narayana Das, including a popular title called "Message to Disciples" wherein Haridas Sastriji offers instructions to his Western followers on daily practices and philosophical considerations.

All visitors from Chakra are welcome to use a coupon for 10% off on their first order -- just enter "CHAKRA" in the coupon field at checkout and hit the Redeem button. We have many more titles awaiting entry into the database so make sure to sign up for our newsletter to receive notification of all major additions and periodic sales.
