Big news from the Far East/Middle East division of the BBT


reposted from book distribution group

Hare Krsna,
Please accept my humble obeisances, all glories to Srila Prabhupada!
In a historical first for all BBT divisions worldwide, we are extremely excited to be offering for sale, beginning this month, the first nine (of an eventual thirty-six) very specially designed foreign language titles produced by the Far East/Middle East division of the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust (www.bbtfeme. com). Several years in the making, the cover designs for all these titles were carefully researched to strongly appeal to—and sell tons of books to!—the millions of people from Far Eastern and Middle Eastern backgrounds who are living in the large ethnic communities of our cities, or visiting by the millions as foreign tourists, or earnestly studying within the thousands of colleges and universities throughout the world.

Veda – Secrets from the East

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.

Rethinking Darwin

Rethinking DarwinRethinking Darwin
by Lalitanatha dasa.

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.
