About the Science of Self-Realization
The Science of Self-Realization consists of articles published in Back to Godhead magazine from 1958 to 1977.
“The Scriptural Basis of Kṛṣṇa Consciousness” was published in 1970 as a separate pamphlet.
“Superconsciousness” was adapted from Śrīla Prabhupāda’s purport to Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 3.15.45.
“The Incarnation of Love of God” was edited from a lecture Śrīla Prabhupāda gave on the Caitanya-caritāmṛta (Madhya-līlā 20.330–35) in December 1966.
“Chanting the Hare Kṛṣṇa Mahā-mantra” appeared as a separate pamphlet in 1967.
“Śrīla Prabhupāda Arrives in America” is a translation of a Bengali poem Śrīla Prabhupāda wrote in September 1965 entitled “Mārkine Bhāgavata-dharma.”
The articles were variously edited by Rāyarāma Dāsa, Hayagrīva Dāsa, Jayādvaita Swami, and Draviḍa Dāsa. Jayādvaita Swami compiled the articles, and Mukunda Goswami and Drutakarmā Dāsa wrote the introductory material for the book and its chapters.
