March/April 2019

WELCOME  This year marks the fiftieth anniversary of the opening of the first temple of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness in the UK. After many struggles, the three devotee couples who traveled to London from America were eventually able to invite Srila Prabhupada to London to install Radha-Krishna deities, whom he named Sri Sri Radha-Londonishvara. Devaki Devi Dasi tells of the early days of ISKCON London and of its current projects.

Among the important calendar events that coincide with this issue are the appearance anniversaries of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and Lord Ramachandra, as well as the celebration known as Shiva Ratri, dedicated to Lord Shiva, whose unique position among exalted personalities in the Vedic tradition causes much confusion. In Shiva, the Supreme Vaishnava, first-time contributor Gaura Sarana Dasa seeks to bring some clarity to the issue.

Chaitanya Charana Dasa, who’s regular articles often draw spiritual lessons from the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, turns to a different source this time: modern researchers into past-life memories. In A Case of Muslim-to-Hindu Reincarnation, he lays out compelling evidence that, as Lord Krishna tells us in the Bhagavad-gita, we have lived before and will continue to live after leaving our present bodies.

Hare Krishna. – Nagaraja Dasa, Editor
