When Lord Krishna appeared about five hundred years ago as Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, He gave two primary instructions: perfect your life by following the teachings of the Bhagavad-gita, and spread the Gita’s message to others. This issue contains three articles that deal with the second instruction.

In Srila Prabhupada’s lecture, which opens the issue, he quotes a text from the Vedic literature directing every human being to serve others. Prabhupada explains why the best way to serve our fellow human beings is to deliver to them Krishna’s teachings. In “Teaching Bhakti in a University Town,” we hear how a devotee couple is spreading Krishna’s message in Charlottesville, Virginia, having taken the initiative to teach the Bhagavad-gita to university students there. Across the ocean in South Africa, Krishna’s devotees are delivering Krishna consciousness to the local African people, knowing that the unity South Africa strives for can be attained only on the spiritual platform.

Padma Devi Dasi’s “Krishna, the Supreme Psychologist” deals directly with Krishna’s teachings, showing how they’re the answer to all our problems, whether of body, mind, or soul. Articles by Urmila Devi Dasi, Vishakha Devi Dasi, and Tattvavit Dasa relate Lord Krishna’s teachings to space, money, and ancient Greece.
Hare Krishna.
