Over the last few years Tattva Vicara Publications has printed and distributed in excess of 40,000 single-lecture booklets of our beloved Gurudeva Śrīla Gour Govinda Swami for free. (Excluding multi-lectured books.)
Śrīla Gour Govinda Swami expressed a desire to have all of his words printed. In an emphatic voice he once said to his secretary at the time, “… print everything I have ever said …”
Now a new 50-page booklet, in full colour, is ready for a print run of 10,000 copies. The new booklet is titled: ‘The Five Levels of Consciousness & the Salve of Love’. It is an introduction to Kṛṣṇa-consciousness, specifically intended for mass distribution on the streets. The cost of printing is estimated at $5,000 Australian.
Volunteers and donors are urgently needed to be part of this worthy project. If you think you can help support the distribution of this booklet, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to help with this project by making a donation please click the donate button.
Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda was particularly enthusiastic about preaching through the printed word because he saw it as a stable and far-reaching method of spreading Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu’s pure devotional teachings. He famously called the printing press Bṛhat-mṛdaṅga or the ‘big drum’. A mṛdaṅga is a drum used to accompany the chanting of Hare Kṛṣṇa. This drum can be heard for only a block or two, whereas the ‘Bṛhat-mṛdaṅga’ of the printing press can be heard all over the world. This is an opportunity for Śrīla Gour Govinda Swami’s nectarean kathā to reach the people in general.Your lowly servants, @ Tattva Vicara Publications
