Message of Godhead
About the author
His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada (1896-1977) is widely regarded as the foremost Vedic scholar, translator, and teacher of the modern era. He is especially respected as the world’s most prominent contemporary authority on bhakti-yoga, devotional service to the Supreme Person, Krishna, as taught by the ancient Vedic writings of India. He is also the founder-acharya (preceptor) of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness. Srila Prabhupada, as he’s known to his followers, translated and commented on over eighty volumes of the Vedas’ most important sacred bhakti texts, including the Bhagavad-gita—a concise handbook for understanding the purpose and goal of human life—and the multi-volume Srimad-Bhagavatam—an epic biography of Krishna, Krishna’s avatars, and His many devotees throughout the history of the universe.

Srila Prabhupada wrote Message of Godhead in the 1950s, while still living at the Radha-Damodara temple in Vrindavan, India. It was one of his first book-length manuscripts, yet wasn’t discovered until years after he had come to the West. It was first published in 1991.
Through vivid examples Prabhupada makes the case that there’s much more to reality than what our senses can perceive. Message of Godhead is one of Srila Prabhupada’s slimmest written volumes, yet it stands as a compelling, comprehensive introduction to all the major points of Krishna conscious philosophy, which he explains in much greater detail in his Bhagavad-gita As It Is and Srimad-Bhagavatam.
