His Holiness Sivarama Swami writes, "I have personally attended Aruddha devi dasi’s seminar on Krishna Conscious Parenting and Bhagavatam-centered education and consider that it is one of the most important contributions in establishing the social stability and spiritual integrity of ISKCON, which for the most part depends upon the Krishna consciousness of it's children. Her course gives both techniques and inspiration for any parent to simultaneously educate and deliver Krishna to their children."
His Holiness Romapada Swami writes, "I am an ardent supporter of Aruddha Devi Dasi and the models of education which she develops and promotes through her books...Srimad-Bhagavatam: A Comprehensive Guide for Young Readers... The series' main objective is to provide children with a Bhagavatam-centered education, with lots of activities created by parents and teachers that are geared toward different learning styles, while meeting devotional, cognitive and language objectives of a growing child in Krsna consciousness. This innovative and systematic compilation of various activities in book form is a great resource for any parents who want their children to go deeper into the messages of Srimad-Bhagavatam."
His Holiness Hanumatpresaka Swami writes, "Srimad-Bhagavatam: A Comprehensive Guide for Young Readers, to our reading, and from all reports, is an unsurpassed resource for teachers of Srimad-Bhagavatam, both in families and in schools. The variety of materials and amount of work that went into producing the book as a gift to Srila Prabhupada are astonishing."
Her Grace Aruddha Devi Dasi, through her book Srimad-Bhagavatam: A Comprehensive Guide for Young Readers, "is fulfilling Srila Prabhupada's desire that our children get the best Krsna conscious education."(Her Grace Narayani Devi Dasi)
Many of you might have used her Canto 1 books (available in two parts - Volume 1 and 2). These books are widely being used by parents and teachers around the world, including in Sunday Schools and Vrindavana and Mayapur Gurukulas. Having completed Canto 1 study, many devotees are awaiting Canto 2 (available in 1 volume).
Although Aruddha Mataji's husband has retired from work for several years, thus far they have been using their personal funds for the publishing costs. Unfortunately, those funds have now run out. Canto 2 books have been with the publisher for 6 months, without forward movement. In addition, Canto 3 books can be made available in 2 volumes soon, if funds are available.
The editing and publishing costs are estimated to be $7,000 per volume. That amounts to a total of $21,000 for Cantos 2 and 3.
