Srila Prabhupada and His Daughters
Twelve years after Malati devi dasi first hatched the idea, this massive project has finally come to fruition. A Bond of Love: Srila Prabhupada and His Daughters, is a 600 page book of memories written by Srila Prabhupada’s spiritual daughters. Over 300 vaishnavis contributed to the book, which includes both memories of their interactions with Srila Prabhupada, as well as how he impacted their lives.
This is an inspiring retrospective showing how, while his female disciples’ lives unfolded in numerous ways, their bond of love with their guru never wavered. Readers are quickly pulled into the heartfelt memories of these female disciples. While enlightening and uplifting to devotees of Srila Prabhupada, A Bond of Love is also an interesting sociological study of the mindset of young women in the late 60s—why they chose Krishna consciousness, and how those who chose this spiritual path weathered the next fifty years.
