Publisher's Summary

“If a person hears about, glorifies, meditates upon, worships or simply offers great respect to the Supreme Lord Krishna, who is situated within the heart, the Lord will remove from his mind the contamination accumulated during many thousands of lifetimes.” (A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda)

Krishna - the name itself is somehow transcendental and evokes a certain distant familiarity and evocative longing. In fact, it is said the name of Krishna is non-different from Himself. The ancient Vedic Scriptures also confirm that Krishna, as the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is therefore present in the sound vibration of His holy name. If Krishna’s name, and indeed Sanskrit itself, has this non-dual nature wherein that which is named and the name is one and the same, then the aspiring devotional yogi, can, by simply chanting Krishna’s name, either by itself or via the iconic Maha Mantra: "Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare", actually associate eternally with the Lord via this unique transcendental sound vibration. 

This has been the way of Bhakti Yoga in the Vaishnava tradition for over 5,000 years. To further extrapolate this mystical ideal, it is said by sages everything relating to Sri Sri Radha Krishna has the same liberating potency including Their transcendental pastimes on this earth in Their many forms. This inspirational, devotional, entertaining, one of a kind, genuinely mystical audiobook presents Bhagavan Sri Krishna in his many alluring and mystifying incarnations (known as Das Avatar) accompanied by an amazing production of sound effects, music and other talented performers which help tell these ancient fascinating tales so well. 

Here is the perfect audio companion for every serious aspiring yogi, confirmed devotee, student of eastern philosophy, curious commuter, or indeed anyone wishing to broaden the awareness of their true spiritual nature of the elemental essence of Sat Chit Ananda or eternity.

Performance is terrible.

I love the story, but the performance made me feel like I was watching a low budget fantasy movie made in England from the 80's.

I bought two of the same books.

I loved it the first time I heard it. I thought I was buying another book with more stories. turned out to be the same book.

Interesting Stories of Krishna

I'm interested in Krishna and enjoyed these stories. Just be aware that there are sound effects, music, and changes of voice for various characters. some of these effects were fitting, some annoying, and some just kind of funny to me. From them I recognized clips from movie introductions, pink floyd songs etc. A few times the descriptive voice (narration) and the voice of the person in the story who was speaking were played at the same time so you had to intently listen to one or the other to get either one. Performance could have been done a bit better, but it wasn't too bad and I personally enjoyed it even with the artistic flair.

Love the stories but the production is terrible

It’s not the reading or the story that makes this audiobook hard to listen to. It’s just that there’s a lot of other noise going on in the production- either music or other voices that make it hard to hear the reader.
