Summary

Prabhupada: Your Ever Well-Wisher tells the inspiring story of a remarkable man and his remarkable achievement. A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada - philosopher, scholar, religious leader, author - founded the Hare Krishna movement in 1966, effectively transplanting India's spiritual culture of bhakti yoga from India to America. In his seventies and with almost superhuman drive, Prabhupada took his Hare Krishna movement and its iconic chant around the world and then back to India, establishing centers and ashrams wherever he went and writing over sixty books.

Drawing on Prabhupada's own words and on numerous interviews with those who knew him both in India and the West, Prabhupada emerges as a vital and earnest ambassador of spiritual India whose teachings continue to influence spiritual culture today.

Wonderful story but poor narration

The book is wonderful to read, and I was looking forward to having the audio version of this but the quality of the narration is so poor, it’s impossible to listen to this book

Disappointing

Swami Prabhupadaji was an enlightened master. He elevated dropouts when he founded Iskcon and founded a world-changing Organisation, giving faith, hope and solace to hundreds of millions of followers.
This book doesn't glorify His Grace nor does it tell the whole truthful story.
What a shame

This is a wonderful telling of Srila Prabhupada’s blessed life and journey. Full of bliss, knowledge and eternal in its meaning. A must read.

AGTSP - Brilliant

Wonderful insights into the life of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Loved the book but the narration could have been delivered with more expression. Thank you

Jai Srila Prabhupada!!!

What made the experience of listening to Prabhupada: Your Ever Well-Wisher the most enjoyable?

The wonder of story itself propels it right along. Also the fact of what can be achieved with Krsna's blessing.

What did you like best about this story?

I was so excited listening to the narration about the first (and early) Kirtans in the park in New york. To clarify my meaning all you have to do is Youtube "Hare Krsna Kirtan" and see what the early seeds planted!!

Which scene was your favorite?

To many to even pick one over the other.

The greatest story I have ever heard!

I bought this book from some Krishna devotees over 20 years ago but never read it. Boy do I regret it now. Simply amazing. It started good and only got better as it continued. So glad I found this audio book.

Simply superb!! This is great to know someone like Swami Prabhupada so closely

I was always wondering how the great successful people (spiritual leader, Entrepreneurs, Businessman, sportsperson etc) talk, behave, prepare, plan, perform, communicate, Act etc in their real life.. This book gave me an opportunity to know more about Swami Prabhupada 🌹🙏 and his Journey till End by someone who was very close to him .. through out the story I always felt like I am somewhere near to Swamiji and seeing everything with the eyes of Sri Dasa Goswami🙏. thank you very much for writing and sharing such a wonderful book and experiences!! No doubt Narration by Michael Scherer👏 is great , he really did his best in pronouncing Sanskrit words and others Shlovka..

Lots of things we can learn from Swamiji journey of awesome life and I am so much inspired and motivated !!! 🙏🙏🙏🙏
