It was a real surprise! You may have seen pictures of it on my website. I was expecting an update on how printing would take place on Sri Damodara-janani, the damodara-lila book, and when Sundara-rupa appeared along with Revati, Manjari, and Manorama, they had copies of the printed book. In addition they were live streaming to Braja Sevaki in Mayapur, Ananda-Caitanya on sankirtana, and Nalini-kanta in Eger. And there were 250 more books ready and waiting to be sold at Radhastami. I was flabbergasted. It was really not what I had expected. Krsna consciousness is always full of surprises. I wish they were always as pleasant as this one. A real heartfelt thanks to everyone who made it possible.
So the book is available. The first major shipment is headed for London. Don’t consider the following statement to come from the author, but: Sri Damodara-janani is the best of the Krsna in Vrndavana series and extremely conducive to meditation during the month of Kartika.
Ok, here is an update on developments, and there are quite a few: Sri Damodara-janani is being translated into Hungarian and could be in print by early spring of next year. Volume 4 of NVM will go to the printer at the end of October, so devotees will have it for Christmas. And for the English-speaking devotees all the Nava Varaja-mahima e-books will be available in stores by the end of this month. So, happy reading and Hare Krsna.
Yours in Krishna s service,
