BY B.P. HRISHIKESH

Please accept my humble dandavat om pranams. All glories to the glories of the Vaishnava tradition, its Guru-Varga and the courageous stand of Sridhara Swami's tika, Jiva Goswami's defense of his Gurudeva to Dig Vijay Pandit, Baladev Vidhyabhusana's Govinda Bhasya Commentary and Srila Bhaktisiddhanta's fierce defense of the highest standards of Gaudiya Vaishnavism in their propounding the personal philosophy of responsible conduct of the jiva to Bhagavan Sri Krishna.

Allow me to express my gratitude to all of you for your input to our publications and in particular, the VISHVA-VAISHNAVA RAJ-SABHA magazine.
Without your association, there could be no magazine. I write mainly to inform you of our changes in address and an additional office of the WVA publishing gorup. For an upgrade in quality, we have shifted the Singapore office [which yet remains in the same building] to:

WVA Publishing
South East Asia Office
5001 Beach Road 03-18
Singapore 199588
Tel: [65] 295 2898 [with answerphone]
Fax: [65] 291 0772 [by request] or [605] 692 5697
e-mail: bphds@mbox5.singnet.com.sg

As well we now have a handling office in Europe for European orders of our publications, tapes and details on Tours and Melas:

WVA Publishing
European Office
Vrinda Wein
Thaliastrasse 77/7
1160 Vienna, Austria
Tel: [43-1] 494 7758
e-mail: wva.europuboffice@aon.at

This will help to reduce the postage for publications to European countries. We hope to make the same arrangement in the USA next year. We shall notify you when that occurs.
