Mothers and Masters

Bhakti Vikas Trust
Free sample

Mothers and Masters presents traditionalist arguments for the direction of the Krishna consciousness movement, proposing that we should take up Srila Prabhupada's mandate to establish varnasrama-dharma rather than capitulate to the norms and ideologies of secular culture. Particularly discussed are gender roles, parental responsibilities, feminist follies, and some of Srila Prabhupada's more controversial teachings, such as those concerning early marriage, divorce, and polygamy.

About the author

The author was born in Britain in 1957 and joined ISKCON in London in 1975. Later that year, he was formally accepted as a disciple of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda, the founder-ācārya of ISKCON, and renamed Ilāpati Dāsa.

From 1977 to 1979, Ilāpati Dāsa was based in India, mostly traveling in West Bengal distributing Śrīla Prabhupāda’s books. He spent the following ten years helping to pioneer ISKCON’s preaching in Bangladesh, Malaysia, Myanmar, and Thailand.

In 1989 he was granted the order of sannyāsa, receiving the name Bhakti Vikāsa Swami, and again made his base in India. Since then he has preached Kṛṣṇa consciousness throughout the subcontinent, lecturing in English, Hindi, and Bengali. He also spends a few months each year preaching in the West. His television lectures in Hindi have reached millions worldwide.

Bhakti Vikāsa Swami writes extensively on Kṛṣṇa conscious topics. His books have been translated into over twenty languages, with more than one and a half million in print. Mothers and Masters is his seventeenth book.

Additionally, he is involved in developing several gurukulas and also Vedic rural projects based on simple living and high thinking.

Harper 'Happy' Downman has no idea what's about to hit him.  A typical button-down, Christian conservative American with a quaint home, a lovely wife and a dull sex life, he lives a life of monotonous mediocrity in the sun washed paradise that is South Florida.  At the the height of the Great Recession, Happy's world takes a sharp turn when he loses his job due to corporate downsizing.  Things go from bad to worse when he returns home to find his beloved wife in bed with another man.  

Struggling to find stable employment in the midst of an impending divorce, Happy's misfortune plummets further with the sudden arrival of his lecherous older brother.  The black sheep of the family, he tempts Happy with a 'stimulating' solution that's sure to raise eyebrows within his ultra-conservative family.  Relocating to the decadent, hedonistic streets of New Orleans, Happy finds himself in the most unlikely the manager of a 'retail store for couples'.  

Caught in a whirlwind of debauchery, novelties and colorful characters, Happy is challenged to turn around the worst store in the company while also being forced to face the harsh reality of his role in his failed marriage.  In the process, he finds himself also learning quite a bit about life and love from the very people he was once prejudiced against.  For a man with a stellar reputation as a salesman, Happy's about to learn the true meaning of the adage 'Sex Sells'.
