Bhakti yoga for the Muslim
by Nararatna das
Posted January 4, 2003

A group of devotees have established the Muslim Preaching Program as an aid to inter-religious dialogue among Muslims and Vaishnavas. We have written and published several small English-language books, available from our store in Mayapur, for roughly $1.00 to $1.50 each.

The books are designed to help Krishna-conscious devotees present a Vedic viewpoint to members of the Muslim community in a non-argumentative way, as well as to encourage Muslim readers to deepen and strengthen their efforts at God-realisation. Our goal is to build a strong foundation of mutual understanding so that everyone's love and devotion towards the Supreme Lord -- whom we call Krsna and whom the Muslims call Allah -- can be ignited and cultivated favourably.

If you are travelling to Mayapur this year, or have a friend travelling there to purchase items on your behalf, I will be happy to provide more information on the program and to make the books available for sale. I will be at Gaur Purnima from March 1 through March 29 (possibly a bit longer), staying in room 303, the Youth Forum building, opposite the Mayapur Gurukula.

Books available:

  1. Srila Prabhupada on Islam (Everything he is known to have said about Islam)
  2. Bhakti Yoga and Islam (Frequently asked questions encountered in the field, and answers from devotees preaching in largely Muslim countries)
  3. The Hiddwn Treasure of Al-Qur'an (The Holy Qur'an as explained by Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu)
  4. Comparative Cosmology (A comparative study of the viewpoints of modern science, the Qur'an, the Bible and the Puranas)
  5. Enlightenment of Chand Kazi (Teachings of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu to the Muslim governmental official Chand Kazi)

The Islamic community is huge; we need to know how to present Chaitanya Mahaprabhu's mercy to them in a palatable way. Muslim Preaching Program devotees are now based full time in the Middle East. We encourage Muslims who visit temples and preaching centres, as well as devotees interested in expanding inter-religious dialogue, to contact us at , so that we can assist in continuing to develop connections to the mercy of Srila Prabhupad and Sri Krsna.
