New book: Japa Transformations

GN Press sales: by SDG with a Foreword by Krishna Ksetra Prabhu

Almost thirty years since the publication of his first book on japa, Japa Reform Notebook, SDG has produced yet another volume solely dedicated to the subject of the improving chanting of the holy names and is drawing from his experiences on the retreats in his bhajana-kutir in Delaware, when chanting extra number of rounds and rising early.

In his Foreword to the new book, Krishna Ksetra Prabhu of the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies recalls impact of the Japa Reform Notebook: “The book was seen as quite radical or even inappropriate. How could a senior devotee, revered as a renunciant and as an adept spiritual teacher, so openly communicate his own personal challenges in the practice of chanting Hare Krishna? Yet others were enlivened to see that a frank discussion of the challenges to pure chanting was being aired… As in the previous book, Goswami locates himself as both a student and a teacher, as one who continues to learn from his own guru and who aims to help others benefit from what he learns. In this book he asks readers to spend time with him as he questions the extent and depth of his own successes and the meaning of occasional apparent setbacks in practice as he takes one through a sustained personal meditation on the eight verses of the Siksastakam, Sri Caitanya’s verses that encapsulate his teachings.”

“From his First Transformations early on to his Reality ruminations later, it is Sdg’s determination to surrender to the sweet sacrifice of chanting Hare Krishna, and living its deep meaning, that invokes the Names’ blessings on both writer and reader…” writes Suresvara Prabhu (ACBSP) of Hawaii and is concluding about this new book, “Like a japa retreat that comes home with us, Japa Transformations is a valuable companion to help us surrender our life’s breath to praising Radha and Krsna’s divine names, and to enter Their eternal loving service at last.”

Matsya Avatara Prabhu of Centro Studi Bhaktivedanta, Italy, forwarded a copy of the review to be published later, with one section seen particularly appropriate by the author: “The author describes a path that is not without moments of great challenge and discouragement, and this makes it clear that the spiritual path cannot be taken for granted, nor should a reader embarking upon such a path assume that he/she will automatically attain the final goal simply by being initiated upon a spiritual path.

“In other words, the epic journey to full experiential realization of our ontological identity is a goal not easily attained but irresistibly fascinating, and even if only partly achieved, the satisfaction that a person experiences as a result of sincere endeavors on a spiritual path is inexpressible.” And in a response to this author replies that, “This accurately describes my experience with japa: the struggle, but the satisfaction in trying and achieving whatever I can.”

Bhakti Purushottama Maharaja on Mayapur Online Education

Bhakti Purushottama Swami: One of Srila Prabhupada’s repeated instructions to his followers was to read his books. And we can see practically that the more our devotees study Srila Prabhupada’s books while practicing the process of Krishna consciousness, the more they develop enthusiasm to preach Krishna consciousness. Most of our devotees study Srila Prabhupada’s books nicely when they are helped through some study program or course.

Mayapur Online Education is an ISKCON Mayapur initiative to help devotees thoroughly study Bhagavad-gita As It Is, Srimad-Bhagavatam and other major books of Srila Prabhupada. It offers online courses on these books, and they prepare the devotees to study Bhakti-sastri, Bhakti-vaibhava, etc. I am pleased to recommend them to the worldwide community of Prabhupada’s followers.
