Following inspiration from so many wonderful Sannyasis and senior devotees, and with permission from the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust, Dancing Ganesh is privileged to able to present an exclusive program which gives you access to 13 of Srila Prabhupada's books at your fingertips. Just imagine, wherever you travel, in your lunch breaks, giving class, being asked a challenging question, you could have the answers with you in your pocket, beadbag or handbag.
This is our way of serving Srila Prabhupada's mission of spreading Krishna Consciousness throughout the world. Therefore, the cost of the package containing 13 books has been kept to a minimum. A small amount to pay in return for the most incredible teachings from Srila Prabhupada.

Veda means knowledge. The Vedic knowledge translated and commented by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhakthivedanta Swami Prabhupada (also known as Srila Prabhupada) provides the torchlight for illuminating the spiritual pathway through this dark jungle of the age of Kali(age of quarrel).
Due to association with the the material nature, a living entity is entangled in the 3 modes of material nature (goodness, passion and ignorance) and therefore he/she has to face all the miseries of material existence like birth, death, old-age and disease. Now if the same associating tendency is used for associating with pure devotees of the Lord, he/she can be liberated from the material existence and fulfill the mission of human life.
As Srila Prabhupada pointed out often, there are 2 ways of associating with the spiritual master(a pure devotee): through his physical presence (vapu) and through his instructions (vani). Sometimes we can associate with spiritual master physically and sometimes not; but we can associate with him always through his instructions.
The number of quotes Srila Prabhupada quoted are innumerable and are not limited by time and space. This app is a humble attempt to spread the vani of Srila Prabhupada and to give people a chance to associate with him.
We are constantly trying to improvise on the quality of the presentation. Please help us to improve the app by providing your valuable feedback or suggestions by using the feedback options in the main menu.
