On the occasion of Lord Krishna’s appearance day, the African BBT has released its first book in Xhosa, one of the eleven official languages of South Africa. Xhosa is the first language for about 8 million people. The book is a translation of Srila Prabhupada’s Beyond Birth and Death.
First printing: 5,000 copies.
The translator: Tota Gopinatha Dasa. The graphic designer: Khotso Kholopane.
VEDA: Secrets From The East. The first introductory book to Krishna consciousness for some time, it features a compilation of writings by ISKCON Founder Srila Prabhupada and his disciples on the most crucial questions of our existence.
What lies beyond death, and what would you do if you had only a few days left to live? Despite an abundance of comforts and conveniences, why do many still feel dissatisfied, empty, and lacking in purpose? Are day-to-day occurrences predestined, or is life an interplay of fate and free will?
Over 500 pages punctuated by 16 color plates, VEDA answers these questions and more, covering topics such as the soul, karma, reincarnation, and meditation. Intended for mass distribution, the BBT hopes it will awaken within readers the spiritual insights great teachers have spoken of for thousands of years.

A Vedic Study of Darwinism and Intelligent Design is written for any lay scientist or general reader interested in Darwinism and its alternatives. Over the past few decades, advances in biochemistry have created an Intelligent Design opposition that maintains that the theory of evolution is beset with anomalies. In Rethinking Darwin, Lalitanatha Dasa has collaborated with the Intelligent Design movement’s leading proponents to point out the flaws in the Darwinian paradigm and examine the case for intelligent design.
The book explores evidence from the fields of archeology, geology, cosmology, and consciousness studies, and then offers an alternative paradigm from Vedic texts.
