Learning to Produce Films for Preaching

ASK BVKS | February 1, 2012 |

English;

Question:

I have a doubt about usage of making films in Krishna conscious preaching. I have a desire to become a nice filmmaker and make some good films to entertain and enlighten people. But after knowing philosophy of Krishna consciousness, I am in a great confusion of how to live my rest of life. So can you please kindly clear my doubt.

Can a devotee learn to produce films or animation techniques and try to preach through media by making films like Ramayana, Mahabharata etc. in large scale productions, making nice devotional documentaries, biographies of elevated devotees? or doing such thing is just sense gratification for achieving my personal goal?

Question:

Could you please share your vision on the books of Dr. OBL Kapoor (Adikesava prabhu). I am specifically interested to know your opinion regarding his biographies of the "Saints of Vraja". It has been recently published in Russian by devotees outside ISKCON and our devotees are enchanted by it. Still, some maintain their doubts about it. Should ISKCON devotees read this book?

His other book "The Saints of Bengal" is less popular since most of our devotees are aware of the existence of sakhi-bheki etc that it depicts.

I would be very grateful if you could advise us in this regard. Thank you very much.
