WELCOME This issue of BTG is filled with articles covering a range of topics related to Krishna consciousness. Srila Prabhupada in his lecture delivers a common-sense refutation of the proposition that we’re all God. In “The Technology of Transcendence,” the article featured on our cover, Dvijamani Gaura Dasa takes on the topic of technology and how Lord Krishna’s devotees, whose lives center on spiritual goals, evaluate it.
In an excerpt from volume two of Shyamasundar das’s Chasing Rhinos with the Swami, we hear about Srila Prabhupada showing some of his early disciples around Krishna’s hometown. Satyaraja Dasa writes about the esteemed Bhagavatam commentator Sridhara Swami.
Chaitanya Charana Dasa continues delivering lessons from the Ramayana, this time focusing on the exploits of Hanuman during his solo trip to Lanka. Vishakha Devi Dasi tells us how we can become empowered, especially in our devotional service to the Lord.
Narayana Dasa discusses aging in Krishna consciousness, a topic seemingly more relevant for many of us today than in the early days of the Hare Krishna movement. Sarvabhauma Dasa gives his thoughts on a perennial concern for the movement – the need for cooperation. And Gauranga Darshana Dasa discusses a related topic – how to make the best of superior-subordinate relationships.
Hare Krishna. – Nagaraja Dasa, Editor
