When I met Srila Prabhupada in early 1977 in Bombay, His Divine Grace instructed me to dedicate my artistic talents to make the children Krishna conscious through art.

We at Vedic Arts Publications are enthused and surely blessed by Srila Prabhupada for having already published more than 100 titles in most attractive presentations that include

Krsna conscious art books,
illustrated story/coloring books,
poems & rhymes coloring books,
fun crafts,
picture puzzles,
dot books,
number books,
picture-alphabet books,
creative interactive books,
general knowledge books,
Krsna conscious text books,
personality development books,
and many more to come.

Vedic Arts is truly dedicated to the cause of children and the mission of Srila Prabhupada.

We hope the temples and individuals will take advantage of Vedic Arts Publications to benefit the children in their respective preaching areas.

Nectar from Srila Prabhupada:

"I am very glad to know that you have got the experience and talent as well as the desire to write Krsna conscious children's books. I have very encouraging report from Syamasundara. that the grammar school children in the villages of both England and Holland are very eager and ready for learning Krsna consciousness.... So you can write many books for children and insert pictures, then they will be a sure success.

....What one learns as child is not lost throughout the life. So this is a very important business. Please execute it with great care and seriousness of purpose. May Krsna bless your sincere endeavor in his service. The more yo work for Krsna, the more He will bestow auspicious intelligence upon you for furthering your loving service unto Him." [Letter to: Yogesvara, 19 July, 1970]

"Yes, it is very good work that you are doing by making children's books on Krsna conscious subject matter. We have got so many children now.... So what is learned in the early years of life will not depart for the whole life, therefore do this work very carefully to explain simply and directly Who is Krsna.... And if you can illustrate these books with pictures they will certainly become very, very popular in the schools.... Make some nice Krsna conscious children's books and we shall then see to printing them. You are also a skilled painter so I think this venture will be successful. [Letter to: Ekayani, 25 July, 1970]

Hare Krishna.
