A Living Tradition of Krishna Bhakti / Essential Teachings of A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada by Tamal Krishna Goswami, edited with Introduction and Conclusion by Graham M. Schweig (Srila Prabhupada's disciple,
Garuda dasa), published by Oxford University Press. Tamal Krishna Goswami, one of Srila Prabhupada's early disciples, was usually in the vanguard of new projects. He was very often the person to whom Srila Prabhupada
turned when there was a challenging problem to solve anywhere in the world.
Seeing that Srila Prabhupada's theology was not fully appreciated among the intelligentsia, Tamal Krishna Goswami dedicated the last six years of his life to academic studies. This, his final work, is his Ph. D. thesis, in which Srila Prabhupada's unique contribution to the Gaudiya Vaishnava tradition is clearly glorified and the criticisms and misunderstandings about Srila Prabhupada are politely but firmly refuted. This is an invaluable resource for those who wish to communicate with the academic community, and raises awareness of academic vocabulary, balance and standards.
