Reflections on Sacred Teachings Vol.5
This is the fifth volume of the series “Reflections on Sacred Teachings,” and it elaborates on Srila Bhaktisiddhanta’s Sixty-four Principles for Community.
Srila Bhaktisiddhanta has given sixty-four principles for the vaisnava community as found in the Bengali book Srila Prabhupader Vasistha Sampad O Samadhan Sampad (The significant wealth and conclusion of Srila Prabhupada, compiled by Bharati Swami.
Bhakti Caru Swami writes in the foreword: “Although these principles are not yet widely recognized in our society in their original form, our success lies in the implementation of these sacred instructions. They fully reveal the true essence and framework of the International Society for Krsna Consciousness. As we progress and mature, we must realize that ISKCON carries the responsibility to epitomize the ideals on which Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati created the Gaudiya Matha. In order to share these potent instructions with the community of devotees, I translated the original guidelines and printed them in Spiritual Connections, a magazine published for my disciples and friends.”
Upon coming across the translation, Bhakti Tirtha Swami immediately recognized their profound value and eventually resolved to present them in book format.
So this edition now carries the wonderful elaborations on these timeless principles.
Included are also 18 pages of questions and answers, a glossary, and a short biography about the author.
