“Chasing Rhinos with the Swami” volume 2

Thursday, January 9th, 2020

In October 1970, A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami arrived in India with twenty of his Western disciples to re-ignite the dying flames of Krishna consciousness in the land of its ancient origin. Srila Prabhupada and his young disciples were an immediate national sensation. In less than eighteen months, Prabhupada established ISKCON as a major spiritual force in India, laying the foundations for three huge temples and a dozen centers across the land.

In June 1971, Shyamasundar das became Prabhupada’s personal secretary and for the next two years traveled with him around the globe—the eye-witness to Prabhupada’s incredible achievements. Now, at last, here are Shyamasundar’s stories, with 180 photos, describing in well-researched and intimate detail this most exciting episode in Prabhupada’s amazing journey.

Words from the Author:

“You’ve waited a long time for Volume Two, but I wanted to make it perfect for you! After years of intense research, sorting through nearly 40,000 photos,Volume Two is finally ready!

My ardent prayer is that you will relish Prabhupada’s thrilling adventures as much as I have enjoyed chronicling them for you!”
