SmartMag02_5-levels-sThe Five Levels of Consciousness

Book Distribution on the Street

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.

The Bṛhat-Mṛdaṅga

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.
