An offering was made to Krishna- the Supreme Spiritual Master, by the mostpopular musicians of Brazil. They were inspired by Raghunath das, aBrazilian preacher of 20 years. The verses of the Bhagavat Gita appear indifferent Brazilian folk tunes offering a great variety of styles andmelodies on the music CD. Sold in every bookstore together with a copy ofthe Bhagavat Gita, the first edition of 10000 copies sold out within a fewdays. Gal Costa's song about the verse, "patram puspam..." became a tophit and is constantly aired on the radio.
This is an unprecedented accomplishment. Raghunath das was a keyphilosopher in the Sixties of the Brazilian movement called "Tropicalism." Thus, he earned himself the friendship of all searching intellectuals. After becoming a devotee, he personally visited all important friends tocome and understand the greatness of Sri Krishna, who is transcendental tothe whole world from Hollywoodism to Tropicalism. Now his service hasbrought the most beautiful offering of musical flowers. Raghunath das hasalso studied Sanskrit and teaches in Brasilia Vedic teachings in theUniversity.
