A Bond of Love, a series of online interviews that began as a promotional strategy for the book of the same name, sees Vaishnavi disciples of Srila Prabhupada sharing their memories and realizations about their spiritual master twice a month, and thus connecting multiple generations with ISKCON’s Founder-Acarya.
The series is livestreamed every alternate Saturday around 11am PST on the Vaishnavi Ministry North America Facebook page and Youtube channel simultaneously, although times vary to accommodate interviewees from different timezones.
The interview series is inspired by the 600-page book A Bond of Love: Srila Prabhupada and His Daughters, in which over 300 Vaishnavis share memories of their interactions with Srila Prabhupada, and discuss how he impacted their lives. According to publisher Mayapriya Dasi of Bookwrights Press, the intention of the book is to “document Srila Prabhupada’s exchanges with his female disciples for the benefit of existing and future members of ISKCON, as well as for anyone interested in knowing more about our beloved spiritual master and how he deeply and personally affected the lives of his beloved female disciples (spiritual daughters).”
