Dravida Prabhu is a vaishnava scholar, musician and poet. He has edited Back to Godhead magazine and other books published by the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust for over 25 years. From 1983 to 1989 he was part of the team that produced the last six 1,000 page volumes commentated English translation of the 18,000 verse Srimad Bhagavatam (Bhagavat Purana). He also helped produce the revised version of Srila Prabhupada’s nine volume Caitanya caritamrita during 1995 – 1996 and his Krishna book from 1994 – 1995. In addition to his editing work, he teaches Bhakti Yoga classes at the Los Angeles and San Diego ISKCON centers. Throughout all this immersion in transcendental literature, Dravida dasa developed a love of the Sanskrit language, and especially the elaborate Sanskrit prosody of the Bhagavatam, portions of the Caitanya caritamrita, and other bhakti literature.
