What To Get The Vaishnava Who Has Everything?
September 27, 2012 12:23 AM Subscribe
My boyfriend is a very spiritual devotee of Krishna (via ISKCON). Before we were dating he lived in an Ashram for a while, and has been involved with the temple since he was in early high school. I'm happily Jewish, and not personally disposed toward that sort of devotion, and I think sometimes my inability to understand comes off as skeptical or disapproving.
His birthday is coming up in about a week, and I'd like to get him something, or do something for him that will demonstrate a commitment to his spirituality - or at least something that shows I'm trying. I'd love your suggestions. More details beyond the fold.

I was thinking I could get a first ed. of one of Srila Prabhupada's books or something, but they were all published so recently that it doesn't seem too special or personal. I don't want to get him anything that should be worshipped, because that seems presumptuous. I can't afford a trip to India, and he already lives in New York. Ideas??
