Happy Diwali, Govardhana Puja and Srila Prabhupada’s disappearance day!
For these supremely auspicious days we are pleased to announce this wonderful and most Important new project!
The full digitization of all the original books!
Important note about the original books:
As of now the only 100% original and approved (pre 1978) text versions of Srila Prabhupada’s books are the scans available on the website Krishnapath.org
The digital text versions, such as what are found in the Vedabase, are not perfect replicas of the books that were printed during Srila Prabhupada’s presence. There are no digitized versions of these books available anywhere as of now, except the original book SCANS available on this site krishnapath.org for free download.
We are working hard to preserve and distribute the original, authorized and blessed books of Srila Prabhupada and to eventually have digitized versions of all his original works.
So far the Krishnapath.org volunteers have completed the very first laborious task of manually scanning every page of all those texts and making them available on this site for you to download for free simply as raw book scans. The “Original Book Vedabase” is the closest thing available in digital text format and is an early step of the preservation process although not identical to the actual books that were printed during Srila Prabhupada’s manifest presence.
The next step that we are actively working on is to manually go through all the scans and word by word, comma by comma reproduce them into fully functioning digitized text files that are compatible with all computers, smartphones, and tablets. Everything will be 100% the original way, as Srila Prabhupada has clearly instructed us “The next printing should be again to the original way.” We currently have the original book scans available for free download on this page.
It is a huge laborious task to produce/digitizing thousands of pages of text from the original book scans identical to the original material as Srila Prabhupada personally approved and blessed it, including all the original cover art and color plates (all original paintings in the books) with copy and pastable text and even active clickable chapter hyperlinks. But by the mercy of Krishna and Srila Prabhupada someone has stepped forward to do this huge task. Upon completion those texts will be immediately available for free download on the KrishnaPath.org website in all digital formats such as PDF, ePub, Kindle etc.
If you would like to see a sample of what we are able to do, we have already produced three books that are 100% identical to the originals that Srila Prabhupada blessed and approved!
We are asking you to come forward and donate hardily on these next few auspicious days to this most important project!
There are thousands of devotee’s all over the world and if everyone gives just a few dollars then this work will go on unhindered and very soon the entire world will have these files for free download and you will get the supreme benefit for this greatest act of welfare to the human race!
