Need to translate all the books written by srila prabhupadha into Indian languages

Hare Krishna my name is Rupesh and I am from India and my mother tongue is Telugu.

I love to read srila prabhupadha books and reread them throughout my life. As it is difficult to read in English it is necessary to translate all the books written by srila prabhupadha into Indian languages. If this is done many people like me are benefitted. There are upto 60 books in English language but only 33 books in Telugu.

Please try to achieve the above.

Regards,
Rupesh.

What is Brahmand / Universe ?

Hare Krishna friends ,

According to the Puranas , there are countless Brahmand or Universes .

Each of them are egg shaped and each of them are covered by layers of fire , water , earth , air , ether , mind , intelligence & false ego .

Now , are the scriptures reffering our galaxy or solar system to be the universe ... or does our scriptures mean that the universe itself holds all galaxies & solar systems inside it , as modern science says ??

Also the earth / bhuloka is believed to be at the centre of the universe according to our scriptures . Above bhuloka lies 7 upper lokas ... and below bhuloka lies 7 lower lokas .

This means our universe has only 15 lokas in total (including bhuloka) .

Is the universe really that small ?? Only 15 planes of existence ??
If so , then could it be , that the scriptures are actually referring our galaxy or solar system to be the universe ?

I'm a little confused here ... Would appreciate if someone enlightens me on this matter . Also are there any sanskrit terms for galaxies & solar systems ?

Thanks & Hare Krishna :)
