Planting the Seed
by Satsvarupa Dasa Goswami
Planting the Seed tells the story of a remarkable individual and a remarkable achievement. The individual is His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada: philosopher, scholar, religious leader, saint. The achievement is the revolutionary transplanting of a timeless spiritual culture from India to twentieth century America in the form of the Hare Krsna movement. In Planting the Seed we encounter Srila Prabhupada as he travels alone, from Calcutta to New York City aboard a steamship, carrying with him only the equivalent of eight dollars and the determination to do the impossible. He arrived in the turmoil of mid-sixties America with a bold vision calling for the radical transformation of human consciousness and human civilization from materialism to the loftiest spiritual and ethical idealism. The seed he planted took immediate root in the fertile countercultural soil of New York's Lower East Side. From there the seed sprouted and blossomed into an international spiritual movement with profound influence on the contemporary world.
