• Leadership has always been a topic of interest and discussion not only amongst modern political and corporate circles, but even amongst great sages and emperors of yore. Leadership finds its relevance in spiritual circles too - spiritual leaders since ages have galvanized people for individual salvation and social transformation. In today’s times, when materialism and atheism have become super-organized, spiritual leaders also need to get their act together to organize mass movements for spiritual enlightenment. One such leader in the modern times, who has displayed a powerful combination of spiritual purity and organizational acumen is H.D.G. A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Srila Prabhupada, as his followers fondly call him, established a worldwide spiritual movement called- The International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) which presents the pristine teachings of the ancient Gaudiya Vaishnava tradition in a way which is relevant and relatable to the post-modern world today.
    This book is a handy compilation of Srila Prabhupada’s quotes on 51 leadership themes, sourced from his books, lectures, conversations, letters, biographies, etc. The book will especially be relevant for the followers of ISKCON who wish to understand the mood, message and methods of Srila Prabhupada, especially in the context of leadership. The quotes presented in this book give insights into the sublime principles of spiritual leadership by which Srila Prabhupada was able to expand Kṛṣṇa consciousness throughout the world, cutting across all cultures, ethnicities, political leanings, geographies, races etc. - inspiring and training his fledgling disciples in culture and philosophy of Kṛṣṇa consciousness, teaching them to cooperate and surrender, invigilating the spiritual standards of his centers throughout the world, standing upto and fighting with challenges & threats—both external and internal—and, at the same time, writing spotless literatures, which would form the basis of his movement for posterity. When carefully studied, these quotes reveal a very striking model and pattern of leadership that Srila Prabhupada demonstrates with respect to each of these leadership themes. Even scholars who are interested in study of rise and growth of spiritual movements would find the book quite an interesting read.

  • What would be your response to someone’s mistake?
    Can you excuse him or her wholeheartedly?
    Errors cannot be endorsed, but disapproval of wrong-doings need not make one apathetic to the wrongdoers.
    “Hate the Sin, Not the Sinner!” is the golden principle exemplified by great people.
    In DISAPPROVED BUT NOT DISOWNED, Gauranga Darshan Das describes the strict yet sensitive dealings of God and godly people to inspire a journey from apathy to empathy, and from rejection to reformation, while responsibly dealing with others’ mistakes. Through relevant episodes from Srimad Bhagavatam, Sri Caitanya-caritamrita and Ramayana, this book describes the nature of loving, compassionate and forgiving hearts, along with attractive illustrations. This book also emphasises the importance of genuine repentence for one’s mistakes, and an honest attempt to rectify them and not repeat them.

  • How do I stop myself from worrying all the time? Why do I overthink? Whom do I blame for my problems? Is my mind a friend or an enemy? My life seems so useless -what is the point of living? Is happiness achievable despite all my troubles? If any of these questions resonate with you, corporate practitioner turned monk and teacher Venugopal Acharya has the answers you're looking for. Beginning with the premise that the solution to an anxious or restless mind lies not in controlling the mind - an impossible task at the best of times - but in learning how to manage it, he recommends three powerful yet simple principles for mind management and happy living: Awareness, Acceptance and Aspiration. Moving a step ahead of merely outlining these 'self-help methods', the Acharya explains - through anecdotes from history and contemporary events as well as nuggets from ancient Indian scriptures - how to integrate these distinct concepts into a three-step practice for daily living and achieve benefits that are simultaneously immediate and long-lasting. An invaluable guide to self-transformation that is tailor-made for modern living, Mind Your Mind gently but powerfully reveals that you are much more than your mind - and you can, therefore, live a fulfilling, uncomplicated and contented life beyond it.     Venugopal Acharya is a full-time teacher, monk and counsellor at ISKCON. Before choosing the monastic order twenty years ago, he worked in the corporate sector, having earned an MBA in finance and a master's degree in international finance. He is a seasoned international speaker and has addressed audiences in the United Kingdom, Russia, Netherlands, Switzerland, Bahrain and Australia, sharing his thoughts on mental hygiene, emotional fulfilment and spiritual discipline. He is author of Are You Connected? and Cricket in a Monastery. His daily blog is available at www.yogaformodernage.com
