Give to Live


The science of Krishna consciousness, or Bhakti yoga, is considered the highest form of yoga, or linking with the Supreme. Krishna consciousness is also considered the highest education. How can ordinary people progress in such a high practice or in the study of such a high science? This question is asked – and answered – by Karnamrita Dasa in this collection of blog posts written for in 2007 and 2008.


Karnamrita has been a student and practitioner of Bhakti yoga for more than four decades, and in his book he shares many of his life’s experiences, thoughts, and realizations as he has struggles to find his way and move ahead on his spiritual path.

Give to Live, with its practical, common-sense tips, can assist anyone on a progressive path. It offers encouragement and help to people seeking to improve their life and become a better human being, whether or not they fully accept Bhakti yoga.

Some praise for Give to Live:

“The book Give to Live by Karnamrita Prabhu is a valuable contribution on how to practice Krishna Consciousness in daily life. We learn best by observing how others live, and hearing their Krishna conscious perspectives. In this book, we find many inspiring lessons for all of us which can change our lives and the lives of others in a meaningful way.”

-Sacinandana Swami

“Give to Live is a beautiful documentation of following one’s path, the lessons learned, the adventures and the struggles. [This book is] very sincere and ‘down to earth’. Although I am not a devotee, I found the book accessible, the words very engaging and thoughtful. Karnamrita writes with care and love. There is much wisdom in this book.”

– Jennifer Boose, Director, School of Esoteric Healing, Winston-Salem, North Carolina

“This is an intimate glimpse into the mind and heart of a Krishna-conscious writer, a portal into the soul of a man with a mission to give. By making prodigious use of scriptural quotes, pithy insights, personal anecdotes, poetry, wit and finely crafted prose, Karnamrita Das conveys his sincerity and determined effort as a spiritual practitioner.”

-Steven Rosen (Satyaraja Dasa)

“Reading Give to Live is like taking a stroll down a beautiful parkway with an honest, kind friend who keeps wanting to give his gifts. His insightful musings, based on relevant scriptures are an easy, devotional read . . . this book is definitely a gift to servants of the Lord everywhere.”

-Krishnanandini Devi Dasi, President and co-founder of the Grihastha Vision Team

“Karnamrita Das has developed a unique and very personal approach for those who are standing at the precincts of bhakti or who have only recently taken it up. His approach is a loving, personal and compassionate one. . . May he touch the hearts of his readers and may he provide the spark for their discovery of the infinite grace of the Lord.”

-Rupa-vilasa Dasa, author of a series of books about the Gaudiya Vaishnava acharyas
