“Wise-Love,” by Srila Prabhupada disciple Pranada Dasi, is described as “a handbook of the essence of bhakti written for a modern, Western audience.” “Wise-Love” is the book’s term for bhakti, meaning love grounded in reason and philosophy.
One of the largest international awards for independent books published by small or academic presses, the Eric Hoffer Book Award is given in honor of the American philosopher Eric Hoffer, who reflected on the human condition.
“A writer is an individual who uses language to discover meaning in experience and communicate it.” Pranada certainly exemplifies this.
Wise-Love by Pranada Dasi has been named the 2018 Winner in the Spirituality category at the National Indie Excellence Awards, which celebrates the best in self and independent publishing.
A concise introduction to bhakti, Wise-Love is arranged in seven sections titled after different phases of the moon, that cover different levels of self-realization.
