Seldom before have we had such an intimate and detailed account of a spiritual master bringing forth a new religious movement, and probably never has there been such a wealth of contemporary data to back it up. These pages tell the story of avisionary spiritual teacher who understood the chaos of prsent-day civilization and who resuscitated spiritual values in th face of the materialistic values of consumerism and hedonism now dominating society. we meet in this volume a saint, indisriminately inspiring the humanity that surrounds him with the purpose of life, and offering them not a mere theory bt a practical way of living.
This is the abridged version of the Prabhupada Lilamrta by Satsvarupa Dasa Goswami.
