Dr. M. A. Venkatakrishnan
I am happy to know that the centenary celebrations of Poojya Sri A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, who spread the cult of Krishna consciousness throughout the world, is being celebrated. His particular emphasis on nama-sankirtana is unique. In fact, the scriptures say that in Kali-yuga nama-sankirtana is the only means by which one can attain salvation. It is he who brought peace of mind to the entire world by preaching the philosophy of devotion to Lord Krishna. I submit my humble pranamas to this great acarya.
