Prabhupada Vijaya (Hardcover)
The greatness of Srila Prabhupada is not understood or expressed by concoction or sentimental exaggeration. The transcendental position of His Divine Grace can only be realised when one sees how Srila Prabhupada is connected to the parampara of great masters, and what qualifications earned him that illustrious position. The bona-fide disciple earns this right of divine vision through a lifetime of service and dedication at the lotus feet of the spiritual master - not by any amount of mundane speculation. There is no other way to the truth than this. Prabhupada Vijaya is an compilation of articles, talks and lectures by Swami B. G. Narasingha Maharaja from 1993 to 2006. In these essays Narasingha Maharaja attempts to remove the societal facade and sentiment obscurring Srila Prabhupada to reveal something of his true personality and nature that many devotees are unaware of — a Prabhupada who had an existence before stepping onto the Jaladuta, a representative of an ancient devotional tradition, a follower in the line of Sri Rupa Gosvami and a faithful disciple of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura. Narasingha Maharaja brings to light many important historical incidents in the life of His Divine Grace, as well as deep philosophical insights into the important topic of Guru tattva.
