Posted December 23, 2005

You may not have heard from us for awhile, but that's because we've been so busy. Not only are we close to repairing the damage from Hurricane Katrina www.newtalavana.org/katrina.htm, but we also have some exciting developments to report in the area of multimedia and web-based preaching.

Weblogs and Podcasts
The hottest area on the Internet today is weblogs, or 'blogs,' and podcasts, which are downloadable audio or video programs playable on a computer or portable device such as an Apple iPod. Blogs are extremely popular, and podcasts are one of the best ways to reach the younger, 'wired' online generation. We now operate a multimedia weblog/podcast:

Prabhupada-vani
The Prabhupada-vani weblog prabhupada-vani.blogspot.com/ features a daily different recorded bhajan, kirtan or class by Srila Prabhupada. There is also a podcast feed feeds.feedburner.com/prabhupada-vani for downloading the MP3 audio file associated with each blog entry. The lyrics and purport are included in both written and recorded form. The Prabhupada-vani podcast is available on Apple iTunes itunes.com/, the most popular podcast site.

eBooks and Music Downloads
I frequently get requests for my books and CDs, all of which are currently out of print. Rather than reprint all the volumes and discs, which would be expensive, I have uploaded them. You can download the complete books and samples of my music CDs from the New Talavan website newtalavana.org/ebooks. There are also links to the online music stores where you can purchase and download the complete CDs.

Sacred Cow Productions
Our New Talavan preaching project, Sacred Cow Productions, now features a complete audio, video, multimedia and Internet production suite with excellent facility for state-of-the art preaching. Project proposals from devotees who want to expand the good reputation of Srila Prabhupada's movement through the arts are encouraged. Our current productions available include:

We look forward to continuing and expanding multimedia and web-based preaching at New Talavan. Please feel free to contact us at any time with your suggestions and comments.
