WELCOME  When His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada left India for America in 1965, his mission, as described in the standard prayer to him, was to deliver “the Western countries, which are filled with impersonalism and voidism.” In this issue, Srila Prabhupada refutes the idea, central to impersonalistic philosophies, that we are all God – a fallacy promoted by many teachers from India before and after him. By understanding the difference between “Limited and Unlimited Consciousness,” we can quickly disabuse ourselves of any notion that we might be God.

Srila Prabhupada worked tirelessly to save people from the spiritually devastating effects of impersonalism and voidism, and he encouraged his disciples to do the same. He had many plans for grabbing people’s attention and drawing it to Lord Krishna’s unadulterated teachings. One plan was the building of a magnificent temple – The Temple of the Vedic Planetarium – near the birthplace of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu in West Bengal. Here we present an update on that project, the completion of which will surely inspire countless souls to ask, “What’s this all about, anyway?” With that inquiry, they’ll move one step closer to a reunion with Lord Krishna, the Supreme Person and the soul of all souls.

Hare Krishna. – Nagaraja Dasa, Editor
