Padmalochan Das had presented several books to the world. Some are his original research & compilation and some are his translations from Sanskrit.

His life’s work is Govardhan guide, Madhurya Dhama (his original research & compilation). He spent 20 years of his life in Vrindavan, researching the Dham on the order of Srila Prabhupada,who gave him instruction to write books about Holy Dham. It is Padmalochan Das’s research and work that became basis of knowledge of Vraja-parikrama and pastime places for devotees these days.

Padmalochan Das has very special place in Vraja and Govardhan in particularly, and now his puspa-samdhi is situated by the side of Govardhan hill, at Dhanya-nivartan area (accross the parikrama path from ISKCON Govardhan) – the place where Krishna enjoyed tax pastimes with the gopis.

Lately I have seen 2 of my husband’s books being printed by “Touchstone Publications” without permission, Isvara  das puts his own name on them as the authour…(!)…(not mentioning Padmalochan Das anywhere…)

I feel that it will not be right of me to watch this quetly, I need to reprint my husband’s books – to preserve his service, which is authorised (ordered) by Srila Prabhupada personally in 1975.

I also have color photo-book of Mayapur Darasan ready – my husband wanted me to publish it, but I have no money for this now…

I NEED FINANCIAL HELP TO PUBLISH BOOKS. I appreciate any donation, big or small, can accept via PayPal.
