On A Silver Platter is a type of literature called “sangraha”, which is a collection of writings not necessarily related to each other. This book contains articles generally written with the idea of addressing an audience of people who already have a certain level of knowledge of the basic principles of our philosophy, but some of them were written with the idea of addressing another type of reader.

We are aware that long lists of names and numbers might annoy readers who are less eager to delve into some issues, but we have chosen to do so anyway because some information must be published for the benefit of researchers and scholars. I hope this choice meets your favor. Most of these articles were written by Manonatha Dasa, a direct disciple of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.

The book On A Silver Platter was finished in July 2022. We thank Yamuna Devi Dasi for editing the text, Madhavendra Puri Dasa for the covers and Isvara Dasa for maintaining the Isvara.org website and our book store located on store.isvara.org.
