Announcement From Gopal Jiu Publications
BY GOPAL JIU PUBLICATIONS
USA, Apr 28 (VNN) ISKCON Gopaljiu Publications is pleased to announce the launching of Sri Krishna Kathamrta Bindu, a free bi-weekly email mini-magazine, published every ekadasi, dedicated exclusively to Krishna Katha. Like the bigger Sri Krishna-kathamrta magazine, it is designed for those who want to go deep into the pastimes, philosophy, literature and history of Gaudiya Vaishnavism. Bindu will feature regular articles from previous acaryas such as Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Prabhupada, Srila Thakur Bhaktivinode, Viswanath Chakravarti, Rupa Goswami, etc., as well as new translations, research findings and contemporary articles.
We have taken the liberty to add your name to our initial subscription list because we feel that you'll like Bindu and will appreciate the drops of nectar every two weeks, conveniently delivered to your email address. The premier issue is being sent to you simultaneously attached to a separate text. (If somehow you do not receive it please contact us.) The first regular issue will appear on Varuthini Ekadasi, 19 April. If you are not interested in subscribing to this free service, we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused. Just send a blank email to firstname.lastname@example.org and type "Unsubscribe" in the subject line and you will be automatically removed from our list.
In upcoming issues you can look forward to reading excerpts from the lives of great acaryas such as Rasikananda Prabhu, Birchandra Prabhu, and Gangamata Goswamini, new translations of stories from different Puranas as well as little known but highly respected Gaudiya Vaishnava literatures such as, "Mahabhava Prakash", written in the 1500's by Kahnai Kuntia, an Orissan associate of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu; "Sri Abhiram Lilamrta", written in the mid-1500s by Srila Tilak Ram Das, a disciple of Srila Abhiram Thakur; "Sri Prema Vilas", written in the early 1600's by Srila Nityananda Das, a disciple of Jahnava Devi; "Sri Karnananda", written in 1607 by Srila Yadunandan Das Thakur; and "Sri Bhakti Ratnakara", written in the late 1700's by Srila Narahari Chakravarti etc, etc.
Sri Krishna-kathamrta Bindu is being produced in pursuance of the instructions of Srila Gour Govinda Swami, whose articles will also be a common feature.
Each Bindu will be an easily digestible four pages long, and will be published in "PDF" format. To read them you will need to have some version of Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your system. Adobe Acrobat Reader is a free software. If you do not already have a copy you can download it from http://www.adobe.com.
And if you like Bindu, please tell your friends, and print out a copy and post it on your community's notice board.
