His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda
Vanipedia is a dynamic encyclopedia of Śrīla Prabhupāda's words (vani). Vanipedia aims to explore and comprehensively compile Śrīla Prabhupāda's teachings from various angles of vision and present them in accessible and easily understandable ways.
There are seven divisions, or petals, in the whole Vanipedia project, each one with its own website (you can see the list of the site titles under "Interaction" to the left). At the moment there are three petals that are filled with content: Vanisource, where you can read the archived collection of Śrīla Prabhupāda's books, lectures, conversations and letters, Vaniquotes, where we are thematically mapping all of Śrīla Prabhupāda's teachings, and Vanimedia, where we are creating many audio and video clips of Śrīla Prabhupāda's lectures and conversations. In addition, we are now beginning to create articles in the Vanipedia petal (the site where you are now).
Vanipedia's vision is a collaborative endeavor which will succeed as more people come forward to participate. We have created a very easy compiling process to populate the Vaniquotes petal. Compiling in Vaniquotes is a penetrating way to study Śrīla Prabhupāda's teachings. Each Vaniquotes page contains one or more quotes and is organized under a system of categories based either on a theme or on a key word or phrase. As Vaniquotes grows, content for the other petals - in the form of written articles, reference guides, and other educational material - will naturally develop. The Vanipedia project is building an unparalleled resource for the benefit of all and will offer a continual, worldwide platform for Śrīla Prabhupāda to preach and teach the science of Krsna consciousness.
