When we accept the call to spiritual adventure, we inherit the life we were destined to live. That is the message of Swami in a Strange Land, a power point lecture on the life and mission of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada by Joshua Greene (Yogesvara Das), based on his biography of the same name (May 2016, Mandala Publications). The presentation explores the future of Vaishnava culture.

The presentation features archival imagery and a dramatic summary of Prabhupada’s success in elevating devotion to Krishna from the ashes of history to a world stage. By explaining in clear terms the progression of a classic hero journey, author Greene inspires audiences to see themselves as participants in the resurrection of humanity’s spiritual origins and the movement to a more enlightened future.
