Back in February I let the devotees know about a preaching center here in Eugene Oregon that has been started. I have some Back to Godheads, Caitanya Caritamrtas, and early (mostly first printings) of Srila Prabhupada's books for sale. The center is going good and to support it i would like to sell these to help get a prasadam distribution business going. My plan is to do some catering/retail/perhaps food cart segwaying into a restraurant. The first set of Back to Godheads are 242 in total and date from 1966 to 2008. The set is pretty complete from late 1969 onward. These are able to be seen here on this photobucket page:
The second set is 150 and is similar with having an issue from 1966 onward to 2008 but with less in total. I will be listing this set also individually on ebay, so if you need some to fill your sets they are there. Here is the photobucket page for this set: http://s928.photobucket.com/albums/ad129/262nd/Back to Godhead 2/
There are some covers missing and a few in both sets have some pictures cut out...not many but here and there you will find one an enthusiastic devotee may have gotten to with scissors. I also have another set that has 64 issues from 1969 to 2000's if you are interested. The Caitanya Caritmrtas are all first printing with the dust jackets that are in good to very good condition. The dust jackets have all been placed in protective mylar covers. There are Adi Lila Vol 3, Madhya Lila Vol 1-6, and Antya Lila 1-4. Photobucket page: http://s928.photobucket.com/albums/ad129/262nd/Caitanya Caritamrta 1st printing/ I also have some other first printing Caitanya Caritamrtas that i will be listing on ebay if you are looking for a certain volume for your set. The early printings of Srila Prabhupada's books are the Bhagavad Gita, Nectar of Devotion, Teachings of Lord Chaitanya, and others. Here is the photobucket link: http://s928.photobucket.com/albums/ad129/262nd/Early Printing/
If you would like to get these or any of them individually let me know. My phone number is 541-543-3667. Hare Krishna!

In our attempt to please Srila Prabhupada we are committed to spend a month in the villages of Vraj to distribute these books, hold preaching programs and lots of prasad distribution. We have space on the party for three more devotees, so if you want an unforgettable preaching experience, please meet us at the Krishna Balaram Mandir.

I am trying to raise money for a move across the country. The following items are for sale.
Please see pics for some of the items that are included. I am asking $200 for all the worship items. The arati set alone was $100 from Krishna.com. It is extra large temple size. The items include offering dishes, large lamps that were purchased in Bangalore, a nice little swing, deity beds, kartals and much more. There will be some pleasant surprises for the devotee who purchases these items. If you have any questions please contact me at email@example.com.
Buyer pays for shipping. Please be aware that shipping outside the US would be extremely costly as the items are very heavy. So I will ask that all buyers be in the US.

The beautiful building called 'Prabhupada Ashram' in Vrindavan is for sale.
For all details please visit my website: www.prabhupadaashram.in
I own the property with clear title, it was constructed a year ago. Due to my ill-health I have to sell it at the cost price in ‘as is where is condition’ with entire furnishings and all the paraphernalia in the building. Only on first come first serve basis.
Yours humble servant,
The Red Rock Rishis, a kirtan band who focus on singing the Maha Mantra accompanied with Indian mystical and New Age music, have recently released their second album entitled The Beginning Is Near. Although all of the songs of this new album are embodying the Hare Krishna mantra, according to the mood and theme of the musical composition, the titles and melodies of the songs vary greatly in both title and style. From Starship Mantra to Crying for Vraja, Stream of Nectar to the Cowboy Chant, the listener receives both a meditative, uplifting spiritual experience and a wonderful musical journey.
One song, Sri Ram's March Into Lanka, beautifully sung by two lady vocalists, is a portrayal of Mother Sita sitting under the ashoka tree, and praying for her beloved Ram to come save her from the demon Ravana. This song is a three piece composition. In the finale part, where enters the Hare Krishna mantra, one can just imagine Lord Ramachandra and the monkeys crossing the stone bridge over the ocean to come to Sita's rescue.
The following are some of the reviews that the Rishis' new album has received:
"I must say that your CDs are ecstatic! A perfect way of filling the mind with transcendental sound. The tunes just stick in my head and keep me enveloped in a protective bubble of Krishna smaranam all day." - Kurma das (The Cook)
"I feel that the melodies are very energetic. When the mind feels down, if you listen to this CD, you recover. Everyone likes this CD. Whenever our patrons hear the Red Rock Rishis, many of them approach me and ask where to purchase this new CD. It is also very good eating music" - Rupa Sri Radhika d.d., MVT Restaurant Manager, Vrindavan India
"The Beginning Is Near is meditative and full of grace; peaceful and transformative" - Steven Rosen (Satyaraj Das), author "The Yoga Of Kirtan"
"I listen to The Beginning Is Near in the office and at home - just what I have been hankering for - the constant transcendental sounds of the Holy Names in different varieties of flavorful tunes. Thank you Red Rock Rishis! - Gaudachandra Dasa, BBT, USA
"The Hare Krishna chant has rarely had so many variations of musical settings! Beautiful sounds abound, as well as pulsing rhythms. Creative synths, percussion, traditional Indian instruments and outstanding vocals give this CD a feeling of true bliss and wonder" - Pete Fine, sitarist / composer / recording artist / lead guitarist:”Whole Lot Of Zep”
“I have been listening to your CD. Very good bhav!” - Shyamdas, writer, kirtan singer, recording artist, lives in Vraj
"In a time of busy lives, such heartfelt chanting creates a sound current of devotion that calms the mind, and nourishes the spirit. Listen to it in the car, at home, while doing yoga, and the mantra Hare Krishna will carry you through the day." - Sraddhasagar, yoga teacher, owner 7Centers Yoga Arts
Listeners can hear all the songs of the Rishis new CD release and also watch two movies, by logging onto redrockrishis.com.

Hawaii Vedic Temple
by Dasarath Das
Posted October 8, 2012
Sedona, Arizona USA. Our hands are getting busier with our project here in Sedona and other towns in northern Arizona. We are now going out to other surrounding towns such as Prescott and Flagstaff, and Lord Caitanya's message is getting received very well there by many sincere spiritual seekers. In the enclosed photo, a spiritual meditation group organized by two roman Catholic priests (seen in photo, far left and upper middle) get their taste of chanting Hare Krishna. One of the priests is now reading Srila Prabhupada's books seriously and chanting the Hare Krishna mantra on jappa mala.
In addition to our Sedona Center of Vedic Culture project, our next simultaneous venture is to build a Vedic temple somewhere in Hawaii. We will seriously proceed with fundraising and development once we get some persons to help donate the necessary land, at least ten to twenty acres, or more. Our basic idea for bringing the timeless spiritual culture of India to the islands of Hawaii in an alluring and beautiful display, can be seen on our Sedona Center of Vedic Culture website, and can be viewed at http://www.sedonavedicculture.com/sedona_vedic_cultural_center/Hawaii_Project.html.
