Dear Vaisnavas and Vaisnavis:

Please accept our respects. Glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga. Last Fall, Sriman Kusakratha dasa, a disciple of His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada left his body in Vrndavana. He was known and adored by many for his translating dozens of books by the Six Gosvamis and other Vaisnava Acaryas into English. His output was hard to believe. He was greatly inspired by the example and instruction of Srila Prabhupada.

In his honor a website is now open, the "Kusakratha Memorial Library Website". In his last will he stated his books should be distributed for free, and there you will find free downloads, beginning with books not available anywhere else in the English language. Or hard to find works anyway!

We will be adding more and more of his translation work as time goes on. There's a link to receive notification whenever a new book is added. We were honored by his company, and continue to be honored in his absence by these priceless "tears of Caitanya Mahaprabhu", as presented by Srila Bhaktivinoda, the Six Gosvamis, Srila Prabhodananda Sarasvati, and many others.

Kusakratha knew well that in time, elaborate and classy presentations of all these books would be done, some many, many years down the road. Therefore, to fill the gap while waiting for these, he worked very hard to present translations in simple but accurate format for the pleasure of the Vaisnava community.

Your aspiring servants, and last caretakers of Kusakratha prabhu's "Krishna Institute".
