About Gopal Jiu Publications

Gopal Jiu Publications aims at making available to the world a variety of thought-provoking devotional books that highlight the essential teachings of Gaudiya Vaishnavism. In 1977, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada instructed his disciple Gour Govinda Swami Maharaja to preach to the members of the Krishna consciousness movement. Gopal Jiu Publications was founded in 1994 by Gour Govinda Swami to help fulfil this desire of Srila Prabhupada. In pursuance of the instructions of Gour Govinda Maharaja, Gopal Jiu Publications aspires to assist the Gaudiya Vaishnava community in the following ways:

* To show how everything is in the books of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada and help to uphold the purpose and prestige of his mission by propagating Krishna-katha and the teachings of the predecessor Vaishnava Acharyas.

* To help inspire the preachers of Krishna consciousness to continue their efforts to push on Lord Chaitanya’s movement and achieve pure love of God.

* To research the history, holy places, and literature of the Gaudiya Vaishnava tradition, particularly as found in Odisha (Orissa).

* To encourage devotee scholars and artists to produce transcendental art and translations of the literature of the Gaudiya Vaishnava tradition.

Gopal Jiu Publications is a project of The International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) with head office at Hare Krishna Land, Juhu, Mumbai.
