The Harmonist As It Is in Eight Volumes

A Rare Collection of Vaisnava Journals in Eight Volumes

The Historical Beginning of The Hare Krishna Movement in English

The original version of The Harmonist appeared in Bengali under the name Sajjana Toshani in 1879, published by Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura. After his departure, his son, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakura established a printing press and began his preaching mission, The Shri Gaudiya Math. In 1927, he launched the Harmonist magazine, an English version of the original Bengali magazine, Sajjana Tosani. This he did until 1936, the year of his passing from this world.

It is miraculous that after more than eighty years since the last publication of the Harmonist, the rare and dilapidated copies of The Harmonist are now being brought to life with a reprint of the entire collection. 

The Harmonist is the reservoir of all clear conclusions of our predecessor acharyas (Vaisnava Masters), regarding the most important philosophical subjects any devotee would care to know. Furthermore, this collection can corroborate the veracity of any English translation of our important books, such as Jaiva-Dharma and Chaitanya Bhagavata since it contains partial translation supervised and sanctioned by Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Goswami Prabhupada himself.

This collection also contains perfect guidelines for brahmacharis, grihasthas, vanaprasthas, and sannyasis, as well as strategies on how to behave in society through articles on social, economical, educational and political subjects. Although these articles were written more than eighty years ago, they still maintain an amazing insights.
