The materialistic demeanour cannot possibly stretch to the Transcendental Autocrat who is ever inviting the fallen conditioned-souls to associate with Him through devotion or eternal serving mood. The phenomenal attractions are often found to tempt sentient beings to enjoy the variegated position, which is opposed to undifferenciated monism. People are o much apt to indulge in transitory speculation beyond their empiric area or experiencing jurisdiction. The esoteric aspect often knocks them to trace out immanence in their outward inspection of transitory and transformable things. This impulse moves them to fix the position of the Immanent to an Indeterminate impersonal Entity, no clue of which could be discerned by moving earth and heaven through their organic senses.
The lines of this booklet will surely help such puzzled souls in their march towards the Personality of the Immanent lying beyond their sensuous gaze of inspection. The very first stanza of this publication will revolutionise their reserved ideas when the nomenclature of the Absolute is put before them as "Krishna". The speculative mind would show a tendency of offering some other attributive name to designate the Unknown Object. They will prefer to brand Him by their experience as the "Creator of this Universe", "the Entity beyond phenomena"-far off the reference of any object of Nature and void of all transformation. So they will urge that the very Fountain-Head should have no conceivable designation except to show a direction of the Invisible, Inaudible, Untouchable, non-fragrant and Unperceivable on the Object with their poor fund of experience. The interested enquirer will be found to hanker after the records left by erudite savants to incompatible hallucinative views of savage demonstration. In comparing the different names offered by different thoughts of mankind, a particular judge would decide in favour of some nomenclature, which will suit best his limited and specific whims. The slave mentality of an individual will no doubt offer invective assertions to the rest who will be appealing to his for a revelation of his decision. To remedy this evil, the Hymns of the accepted Progenitor of the phenomena would do great help in taking up the question of nomenclature which is possessed of adequate power to dispel all imagination drawn out of their experiencing the phenomena by their tentative exploitations.
The first Hymn will establish the Supremacy of the Absolute Truth, if His substratum is not shot by the bullets of limited Times, Ignorance uncomfortable feeling, as well as by recognizing the same as an effect instead of accepting Him as the Prime Cause. He will be satisfied to mark that the Object of their determination is the Par-excellent Supreme Lord Shree Krishna Who has eternally embodied Himself in His Ever-Presence, All-Pervasive Perfected Knowledge as the very Fountain-Head of all prime causes of unending and non-beginning Time, and Fosterer of all entities, viz., mundane and Transcendental.
The subsequent lines will go to determine the different aspects of the Absolute, who are but emanations of the supreme fountain-Head "Krishna", the Attractive Entity of all entities. Moreover, the derivative proclamation of the nomenclature will indicate the plane of uninterrupted, unending, transcendental felicity and the nomenclature Himself is the Source of the two components which go by the names of Efficient and Material Causes. The very Transcendental Name 'Krishna' is known as the embodiment of all the transcendental eternal Rasas as well as the Origin of all eclipsed conceptions of interrupted rasas found in the mentality of animated beings which are successfully depicted by literatures and rhetoricians for our mundane speculation.
The verses of Brahma-Samhita are a full elucidation of the Origination of phenomenal and noumenic conceptions. The Hymns of the incarnated Prime potency has dealt fully with the henotheistic speculations of different schools which are busy to give an outer cover of an esoteric concoction without any reference to the True Eternal Aspect of Transcendental non-transformable and imperishable manifestatation of the Immanent. The Hymns have also dealt with different partial aspects of the Personality of the Absolute who is Quite isolated from the conception of the enjoyers of this phenomenal world.
A very close attention and a comparative study of all prevailing thoughts and conceptions will relieve and enlighten all-be he a materialist, a down right atheist, an agnostic, a sceptic, a naturalist, a pantheist or a panathiest-busy with their knowledge of three dimensions only by their speculative exertions.
This booklet is only the fifth Chapter of the Hymns of Brahma, which were recorded in a hundred Chapters. The Supreme Lord Shri Chaitanya picked up this chapter from the Temple of Adikeshava at tiruvattur, a village lying Under the Government of Travancore, for the assurance of all god loving, and especially Krishna-loving people in this conditioned jurisdiction. This booklet can easily be compared with another book which passes by the name of Shrimad Bhagavatam. Thought it has got a reference in the pantheon of Puranas, the Bhagavatam corroborates the same idea of this Pancharatra.
The devotees should consider that these two books tend to the identical Krishna Who is the fountain-Head of all transcendental and mundane entities and has a manifestive exhibition of the plenary variegatedness.
Aspersions of calumination are restricted in the limited world whereas transcendence cannot admit such angularities being an angle of 180 or void of any angular discrepancies.
The publisher is carried away to the realm of gratitude when his stores of publication are scrutinized. Thakur Bhaktivinode has given an elucidatory purport of the conception of the most sublime Fountain-Head of all entities in Bengali, and one of his devout followers has rendered that into English for Propagatory purpose. The purports and the translations are traced to the backgrounds of the writings of the Supreme Lord Shri Krishna Chaitanya. The emotional aspirations will find fair play in persuing the texts of this brochure by one and all who have any interest in pure theistic achievements. The materialistic inspection often goes on to say that the provincial conception unity into diverse face quite opposed to the ethical consideration of the limited region. But we differ from such erroneous considerations when we get a prospective view of the manifested transcendentality eliminating all historicities and allegorical enterprises. All our enjoying mood should have a different direction when we take into account the Transcendental Entity who has obsessed all frailties and limitations of nature. So we solicit the happier mood of the scrutinisers to pay special attention to the importance of manifestive transcendence in Krishna.
It was fond necessary to publish this small book for the use of English-knowing people who are interested in the acme of Transcendental Truths in their manifestive phases. The theme delineated in the texts of this book is quite different from the ordinary heaps of poetical mundane literature, as they are confined to our limited aspiration of senses. The book was found in the south some four centuries ago and it is again brought into light in the very same country after a long time, just like the worshipping of the goddess Ganges by the offering of her own water
