Krishna Consciousness at Home

Krishna Consciousness at Home

A Practical Guide
by Mahatma dasa

In response to the frequently asked question, "How can I be a devotee of Krishna without living in a Hare Krishna temple?" Krishna Consciousness at Home is for anyone with a beginning interest in Krishna consciousness who might not have the facility to live in or near an ISKCON center.

As the cover states, this is a practical guide for spiritualizing your personal space. Krishna consciousness isn't armchair philosophy; its substance is practical engagement of all the senses in devotional service to the Supreme.

Krishna Consciousness at Home includes tips on chanting— especially the Hare Krishna mantra—as well as on setting up a home altar and how to prepare and offer food to Krishna.

Readers are introduced to the idea behind following regulative principles, as well as the importance of reading Srila Prabhupada's books—for understanding the philosophy behind the external practices of Krishna consciousness.
