Author of the Day: Krishna Dharma

As we move closer to the second half of the semester, you will have a lot of different reading options, and I know that for some of you the online option is most convenient. The problem, however, is that most online books are public domain books published before 1923. There are a few exceptions to that rule, though, so I wanted to write about Krishna Dharma here and his contemporary translations of both the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, both of which you can find online at the BhaktiVedanta Vedabase. These are both long books, so you could spend one or two or three or four weeks on each epic, either reading the whole thing (four weeks), or zooming in on a section of the epic that is of special interest to you.

Krishna Dharma is a British author, born Kenneth Anderson in 1955. He converted to Hinduism as a young man and has been deeply involved in the ISKCON (International Society for Krishna Consciousness) movement, also known as the "Hare Krishna" movement. You can find out more at his website, KrishnaDharma.com, which is also the source for this image:
