Name : Abhay Charan Founder : ISKCON Achievement : Srila Prabhupadas books are being used as textbooks by numerous major universities in America, Europe and Asia. Review : When the late Prime Minister, Lal Bhadur Shastri saw the first three volumes of A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swamis Shrimad Bhagavatam, he said that every school, college, and government office in India should read these books.

"I am most impressed with A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada's scholarly and authoritative edition of Bhagavad-gita. It is a most valuable work for the scholar as well as the layman and is of great utility as a reference book as well as a textbook. I promptly recommend this edition to my students. It is a beautifully done book." Dr. Samuel D. Atkins Professor of Sanskrit, Princeton University

"...For those who have no access to the Sanskrit language, these books convey, in superb manner, the message of the Bhagavatam. In addition to being a scholarly work, it directly reflects the spiritual aspirations of a religious community which has gained considerable popularity in modern America." Dr. Alaka Hejib Department of Sanskrit and Indian Studies, Harvard University
