Teachings of Lord Kapila

Translation and commentary by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

An audio book narrated by Amal Bhakta Dasa

Approximately 14.5 hours of listening time; with background music. This conversation between Kapila and his mother, Devahuti, reveals the great scholar's understanding of bhakti yoga. He sheds light on such topics as the significance of the guru, the psychology of consciousness, the characteristics of a self-realized person, the science of meditation, the nature of transcendental knowledge, and the process of ultimate liberation.

The Author: Srila Prabhupada, a fully self-realized spiritual master, founded the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) and the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust (BBT). He wrote more than sixty volumes of the authoritative translations and commentaries on the philosophical and spiritual classics of India which have been translated into many languages. Highly respected by the academic community for their depth and clarity, they are used as textbooks in numerous college courses.

The Narrator: Amal Bhakta Dasa is a disciple of Srila Prabhupada and an ordained minister of ISKCON. He has been teaching yoga in general since 1958, and bhakti yoga since 1976. Amal bhakta's narrations of many of Srila Prabhupada's books are sold in stores and broadcasted on radio and digital stations around the world.
