"I was never on the same bus as Dhruva, so I didn't know him very well. But I admired him. Like you said, he was very enthusiastic.
I'm going to read "Jaya Jaganatha!". Any other books you'd recommend? When one worships Lord Jaganatha is it required…"

"I wonder if that is the same Dhruva that I remember. I remember a Dhruva, who was a book distributor and chanted japa very loudly. He had a heavy beard. Was that him? Anyway, I'm quite excited about Lord Jaganatha. I already ordered the book. Got to…"

"Today I was reading the Srimad Bhagavatam, 4th canto. Narada was instructing Dhruva Maharaja how to worship the Supreme Personality of Godhead. In the purport of 4.8.54 Srila Prabhupada says, "When we make a form of the Lord - whether of wood or sto…"

"You're very kind. Thank you for those illuminating words. The Sri Sri Siksastaka prayers are among my favorites. I especially like the last one, where Lord Caitanya compares difficulties to "being handled roughly by Krsna's embrace."

"Hare Krsna. Thank you for your reply. Yes, it was my understanding that a pure devotee has to request Krsna to appear in the form of the deity to accept our service. Not that anyone can create a sculpture in the likeness of Krsna and begin worship.…"
