Unity in Diversity by Radha Madhava Dasa

Eight years ago, His Holiness Bhakti Svarupa Damodara Maharaja (aka Dr. T. D. Singh) asked me to present the teachings of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu in a scientific way. I started to compile a book, and by the grace of Guru-Vaishnav-Bhagavan it is now completed.

It is my great pleasure to present to you the new ebook Unity in Diversity, which was published on the holy appearance day of Srimati Radharani on The ebook is attached in this email. You can also download it from (free download).

The book Unity in Diversity presents the principle of simultaneous oneness and difference in a scientific and easily understandable way. It can be appreciated by devotees, academics and common readers alike. It shows how simultaneous oneness and difference is a universal principle that can convey and reconcile the essential assets of all philosophies, sciences and religions, and how it is also the underlying principle of harmony in all fields of life. It is full of wonderful quotes of Srila Prabhupada and other Vaishnava Acaryas.

It includes an introduction to Vedic science, evidence that the self is purely spiritual, ways of spiritual perception, establishment of Vedic evidence by Sri Jiva Goswami, an introduction to theism and full-fledged theism (Radha-Krishna-prema), insights into spiritual symbolism, a summary of Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s life and teachings, the practical application of Acintya-bhedabheda-darshan, and two special chapters devoted to Sankirtana and Sri Guru.

The book answers fundamental questions like: - How can spiritual phenomena be perceived? - How exactly is Godhead non-different from His various names, forms and energies, and from the spiritual master – and how is He different from them? - How can differing philosophies or religions be harmonized? - What is the best form of universal harmony or union with the Absolute? - What is the best practice for this union?

The book is focussed on the practical application of simultaneous oneness and difference, which is to develop the proper mood in which love of God can fully unfold in our hearts. In this regard, Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur wrote:

“The philosophy of acintya-bhedabheda, inconceivable simultaneous oneness and difference, is the true essence of Vedic truth. Its practice elevates one 
to the perfection of divine love for the Absolute Truth, Sri Krishna.” – Jaiva Dharma, Chapter 18.

It is exciting to know who was the cow who participated in Lord Krsna’s pastimes, or who did severe penance to please the Lord or who appeared from the churning of the ocean. Are all the cows alike? Holy scriptures discriminate, as does Science – Bos Indicus and Bos Taurus. The book throws light on these aspects while discussing the different existing indigenous cow breeds of India; differences between indigenous cows and exotic cows; and difference between buffalo milk and cow milk. It gives both scientific and Vedic insight into the subject. It is likely to inspire love for mother cow with intelligence without generating negative feelings towards non-indigenous cows as the latter have their own place in the ecological set up. It is likely to help and guide the government to annul policies that have harmed our own indigenous cows and gomata and also help formulate policies which will help her from getting extinct. Its Preface has been written by H.H. Bhakti Raghava Swami’s (Head, Varnasrama Ministry, India) and Introduction by HG Balabhadra prabhu (Head, ISCOWP Ministry).

Srila Prabhupada was sent by the Lord to fulfil Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s prediction "Prtvithe ache yata nagaradi grama, sarvatra pracara haibe more nama" - In every town and village of the world, My name will be heard. Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura wrote in his Sajjona-tosani, “Soon there will be a time when the chanting of Krishna’s name will be heard in England, France, Russia, Germany and America.”

In 1965, at the age of 69, when ordinary persons are thinking of retirement, he left Vrindavan & went to the United States to fulfill the mission of his spiritual master. When he first arrived by cargo ship in New York City, Srila Prabhupada was practically penniless. Only after almost a year of great difficulty did he establish ISKCON, in July of 1966. This was purely out of mercy for fallen souls. Read moreView posters. Read Bhajan written on the way to USA.
