WELCOME  Many people around the world are familiar with the Hare Krishna movement, but few know much if anything about the movement’s founder, His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. When Srila Prabhupada was working tirelessly to introduce Krishna far and wide, he did so without a hint of self-promotion. In this issue we hear about a highly successful project by a team of his disciples, grand-disciples, and admirers to present him to large numbers of people through a film: Hare Krishna! The Mantra, the Movement and the Swami who started it all. Having now screened in movie theatres around the world, it has won much admiration for Srila Prabhupada’s saintliness and accomplishments.

Also in this issue, Chaitanya Charana Dasa draws on a story from the Ramayana to make the point that comfort can be a problem for spiritual life but need not be. In An Ancient Lesson in Self-Mastery, first-time BTG authorDvijamani Gaura Dasa writes on a theme related to comfort: the need for self-control. Lack of it brings material and spiritual problems to the individual that affect the whole civilization. He tells of an ancient saint who demonstrated the benefits of full self-mastery.
