I'll Build You a Temple - The Juhu Story by Giriraj Swami

It was a good fight. Someone should write a book about it. . . . It is worth writing—history. —A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

I’ll Build You A Temple transports us into one of the great events of our time. Giriraj Swami gives us personal witness into the life of Srila Prabhupada at a time when Prabhupada faced insurmountable odds at every step. The story reveals Prabhupada’s unwavering faith, indomitable courage, and profound humility. . . .  I’ll Build You a Temple is a contemporary narration that shares the emotions, excitement, and message of sacred texts such as the Ramayana, Mahabharata, Srimad-Bhagavatam, and Bhagavad-gita, whose conclusive teachings are revealed through the lives of great souls, such as Srila Prabhupada, who battle and ultimately vanquish powerful enemies against seemingly insurmountable odds. . . . Srila Prabhupada said that his project in Bombay was his heart. —Radhanath Swami

Srila Prabhupada spent more time in Bombay—554 days—than in any other city in the world. And that indicates the significance of the Juhu project—and of this book. In I’ll Build You a Temple, Giriraj Maharaja has translated his long years of commendable involvement in the leadership of ISKCON Juhu as well as his intense desire to serve Srila Prabhupada’s instruction to him to write into a riveting, thoughtful, and inspiring book. I welcome you all to take a dip in the nectarean pastimes of Sri Sri Radha-Rasabihari in Juhu, which glorify Their pure devotee Srila Prabhupada. —Gopal Krishna Goswami
