The Grand Index of All Things

Indexes are designed to help the reader find information quickly and easily. A complete and truly useful index is not simply a list of the words and phrases used in a publication (which is properly called a concordance), but an organized map of its contents, including cross-references, grouping of like concepts, and other useful intellectual analysis.

We’re in the process of assembling a unified index from all of Śrīla Prabhupāda’s books.

Pick up your copy of Bhagavad-gītā As It Is, turn to the index at the back of the book and “scan” through. If you’re not accustomed to using the index, you’ll see it’s quite a convenient way to get a good overview of the book’s contents, in addition to finding what you are looking for. Now, imagine having a unified index of all of Srila Prabhupāda’s books at your fingertips. You’d be able to find anything—and everything—contained therein, in a systematic and concise manner.

In this digital day and age, this index should be replete with hyperlinks leading straight to the verse/chapter in question, or better yet, to its corresponding paragraph. No more reading out of context, and no more scanning through immense amounts of content to find exactly what you’re looking for. For example, “Charitygiven in goodness,” would link here. (Compare that with linking just to the page, and you can see how it is convenient for study and research.)

Speaking of propagating Kṛṣṇa consciousness all over the world, please consider contributing to our cause. :)
