Kusakratha Prabhu
Kusakratha Prabhu (ACBSP)

His Grace Kusakratha prabhu (ACBSP), who departed October 2005 in Vrindavana (Krishna-Balarama-Temple), made it clear in his will that no books of his should be sold, rather they should be given away for free.

This will is in the care of Danavir Swami?, and possibly others as well. Kusakratha prabhu translated over 150 different transcendental literatures under the name of "Krishna Institute".

Kusakratha Prabhu, a direct initiated disciple of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, joined ISKCON in 1969. Shortly after Srila Prabhupada's departure from this world in 1979, he began to translate and publish classical Sanskrit and Bengali Gaudiya Vaisnava works into the English language.

By excavating these literary treasures at an overwhelming rate he rejuvenated the devotees all over the world, who felt great sorrow in the absence of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Srila Prabhupada. We are grateful to Kusakratha Prabhu for bringing to light the original works of our Gaudiya Vaisnava Acaryas including the Six Goswamis of Vrindavana.

Some of the literature, that Kuskratha Prabhu has translated, is so confidentially elevated that many devotees are not yet ready to grasp it. Nevertheless, these immortal works now stand as a vast body of reference material for the Vaisnava community to consult. Aside from accurately transmitting the words of the acaryas, Kusakratha has also rendered thousands of pages of glorification of Krishna through his personal English poetic composition. Some of these compositions have been published though many have not, as of yet.

Books by Srila Jiva Gosvami

Sri Krishna-Sandarbha - Volume 1 - an extremely special work, very dear to Srila Bhaktivinode, who ordered his son to publish it as his fondest desire, along with Srila Baladeva Vidyabhusana's "Vedanta Sutra with Govinda Bhasya".

This is the second of the six "Sat-Sandarbhas", the first being "Tattva-Sandarbha". The Sat-Sandarbhas thoroughly establish the authority of Srimad Bhagavatam, the transcendental Original Form of Godhead, Sri Krishna, Bhakti, and the methods and stages of Bhakti. The Six Sandarbhas are: Tattva, Paramatma, Bhagavat, Krishna, Bhakti, and Priti

Books by Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur

Sri Amnaya-Sutra - An excellent, excellent overview of the Vaisnava theology and path of devotion. Srila Bhaktivinode composes verses based on Vaisnava siddhanta, and provides illumination purports. Don't miss this one!

Tattva-Vivek - A short yet thorough comparative study of the Absolute Truth. Excellent, really excellent.

Books by Srila Rupa Gosvami

Hamsadutta - The chief of the Six Gosvamis, the very beating heart of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. He wrote many works, this one describes Sri Krishna and His pastimes in choice spiritual poetry.

Laghu-Bhagavatamrta establishes the Transcendental Form of Govinda, as the Primeival Form of Godhead, containing the fullest expression of Transcendental Sweetness and Qualities. A rare and sublime work. Volume One

Books by Srila Prabhodananda Sarasvati

Navadvipa-Sataka - Srila Prabhodananda was the uncle of Gopal Bhatta Gosvami and an intense Krishna bhakta who glorified both Navadvipa and Vrndavana Dhams. One hundred verses in praise of Sri Navadvipa, appearance place of Sri Chaitanya.

Sri Ramanda Raya

Sri Jaganath Vallabha - a very rare work by Srila Ramananda Raya. Executed in the style of a play, it glorifies Sri Krishna and His Sweetness in a sublimely palatable manner.

Srila Baladeva Vidyabhusana

Sri Vishnu-Sahasranama - as translated with commentary by Srila Baladeva Vidyabhusana. Vaisnava tantra dictates that chanting of this work, or chanting a chapter of Bhagavad-gita are two prime means to counteract Deity and other aparadha's.

Chanting of Sri Vishnu Sahasranama takes about 20 minutes, yet grants immediately percievable benefits, besides gradually uplifting the chanter's character and devotion.
