    I am a Christian but very much enjoy Vedic literature and the tales and knowledge of Lord Sri Krishna. Such a beautiful religion and this site is extremely well done.

  8. Rathayatra Dasa says:

    Srila Prabhupada would be pleased to have his books available 24/7 anywhere in the world by your service.
    This proves beyond a doubt, his message for us to stay connected with the bonafide guru;
    “I would live forever in my books”.
    Srila Prabhupada stated: “There is no need by any of my disciples to read any books besides my books – In fact, such reading may be detrimental to their advancement in Krishna Consciousness.” (Srila Prabhupada letter 20/1/72)

    Very helpful in my Srimad Bhagavatam study. Voice quality is too good. Grateful for this service by the entire team.

  12. Sudama dasa says:

    Thank you so very much for taking the time and effort to offer this most valuable service. This is really fantastic. I have been waiting a very long time for this and am so happy I discovered it. I look forward to many many hours of listening. Hare Krsna.

  13. Damodar Hari Das says:

    Thanks a lot for the wonderful work. It has helped me listen to SB until canto 5 and now I realize that other Cantos are work in progress. Any idea on release dates? My SB study is now stuck a bit 🙏.. Anxiously waiting for the release.

  14. Thank you so much. I liked the verse and no verse option.
    Besides, the option to download or stream is also great.
    The sound quality is good.
    Thanks once again for all your efforts.
    May God bless you.

  15. Jagadvira das says:

    This is awesome ! The voice is very pleasing to my ears. No background sounds (which I found a bit of a disturbance). I am listening every day. I have a problem with dizziness and reading is a real challenge, but these audio books are a great blessing. Thank you Prabhus.

    PS – I also love the option of only verses or verses & purports.

  16. Nagabushan says:

    Thanks for the great work by making it available in audio form also but the links are not working from Conto 6 to Conto 10. Please help.

  17. Banabhatta das says:

    Wonderful presentation Prabhus! Thank you very much for making this available to us!
    May I make a humble suggestion?
    It would be really nice if you could present the name of each chapter of SB along with the chapter number. That would greatly help me choose which chapter of each Canto I would want to listen to. Thank you for your consideration.
    Ys.

  18. Atmavan Dasa Atmavan Dasa says:

    Absolutely fantastic! After a long time having been enjoying Damodar prabhus reading of CC and CB I was hoping for the SB and others. Finally found it here! Damodars voice and style of reading is very pleasant for the ears and heart. No disturbing mouth/nose sounds 🙂 or weird rendering/theatrical performance. Slow, clear but also warm and with balanced emotion.
    I have some health problems and reading texts is very difficult. So audio books are a total blessing.
    It would be nice with a soft background music/sound, but one can add that oneself by editing or having a second player. It is actually preferred that one can chose the music oneself to ones liking.
    Would be happy to give a donation for these recordings!

  19. Karuna Sindhu dasa says:

    Wow … just so beautiful … Thank you for this amazing reading!

  20. Makhanacora das says:

  21. Hare Krsna Prabhu,
    Thank you for this wonderful service
    I am sewing for the Deities all day and love to listen to Srila Prabhupada,s books meanwhile
    Was so much longing for the purports to be included which you have my wish come true
    I finished listening to 3rth canto and realize 4rth does not have the purports yet and was very disapointed
    I will go to Bhagavad Gita and will wait patiently for the 4rth cantos purports and Caitanya Caritamrtas purports
    yours truly

  22. Nikunjalila Devi Dasi says:

    Thank you for such a thought to have a audio book. It’s quite relevant now amidst the discussion that Srila Prabhupada Books are not read regularly. This will certainly give us the chance to hears Prabhupada heartfelt transcendental Vani and purify our existence and the world with such vibrations.
    Koti Koti Dandwat Pranams 🙏

  23. Lila Kirtana dasa says:

    Unlimited Thanks for this resource. And thanks again. Hare Krishna.

  35. Thakura Murari dasa says:

    The downloadable or streaming options allows one to read or listen to the greatest of all the Puranas The Srimad Bhagavatam and The Chaitanya Caritamrita. The continued listening or the rereading of these two books will certainly assist one in the quest of returning to the spiritual world. In addition one can access selected chapters
