WELCOME  This issue coincides with the annual celebration of the appearance of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, the incarnation of Lord Krishna who, 532 years ago in Bengal, introduced the chanting of the holy names of God as the religion for the current age. The five-thousand-year-old Srimad-Bhagavatam predicted Lord Caitanya’s appearance, and books about His life and teachings, drawn from eyewitness accounts by His closest associates, grace us with unparalleled information about God and His extraordinary love for His devotees.

In this issue Satyaraja Dasa writes about Shad-bhuja, a six-armed form displayed by Lord Caitanya that shows that He, Lord Krishna, and Lord Ramacandra are all the same Supreme Personality of Godhead.

Also in this issue we commemorate the fortieth anniversary of the opening of ISKCON’s grand temple at Hare Krishna Land in Mumbai. Lokanath Swami was there in the early days of ISKCON in that city, and he witnessed Srila Prabhupada’s determined struggle to make the temple, for which he formally laid the cornerstone, a reality. We present an excerpt from Lokanath Swami’s just-published book Bombay Is My Office, as well as an overview by Parijata Devi Dasi of ISKCON’s other temples and projects in greater Mumbai.
