WELCOME  In this issue’s “Founder’s Lecture,” Srila Prabhupada focuses on a theme he emphasized repeatedly in his talks and books: To get perfect knowledge, we must receive it from a perfect source. When Lord Krishna spoke the Bhagavad-gita to Arjuna, He made it clear that He is God Himself, or, in Prabhupada’s preferred terminology, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. It follows, therefore, that whatever He teaches is perfect knowledge.

One point that Krishna makes in the Gita is that He descends to earth repeatedly throughout the ages in various forms. In this issue, Chaitanya Carana Dasa gives us some intriguing information in relation to the history of the Lord’s avatar Ramachandra that even many of us familiar with His story may not be aware of. Gauranga Darshana Dasa writes about Lord Ramachandra as well, using an episode from His life to illustrate God’s unlimited power.

We don’t have to look back thousands or millions of years to find examples of God’s power – we can simply look at nature today. As Karuna Dharini Devi Dasi tells us in “Krishna’s Nature,” the power of nature displayed in climate catastrophes gives us a hint of the power of the Supreme Person, the source and ultimate controller of nature’s awesome power.
