Srila Prabhupada Today


Bhaktivedanta Book Trust

Aug 08, 2017 — INDIA (SUN) —

August 8, 1962 : New Delhi

Srila Prabhupada starts for Gorakhpur, some 475 miles from Delhi. (Most of the commercial publishers were not interested in the sixty-volume Bhagavatam series, and Srila Prabhupada was not interested in anything less than a sixty-volume parampara presentation of verses.

Srila Prabhupada went to Gorakhpur to show his manuscript to Hanuman Prasad Poddar, even when such a trip as this constituted a great financial strain for him. After briefly examining the manuscript, Mr. Poddar concluded it to be a highly developed work that should be supported. He agreed to send a donation of four thousand rupees to the Dalmia Trust in Delhi, to be used towards the publication of Srila Prabhupada's Srimad-Bhagavatam.)
