After getting the Sri Narda Bhakti Sutra translated into English naturally I felt a great urge to get the Shandilya Bhakti Sutra also translated into English and enjoy its succulent taste-somehow I could collect a very small booklet from our Sri Chaitanya Research Institute Library. But the book is a mere verbal translation in Bengali without any sequence.
Anyhow when I started the work and completed a major part of it I could get a book with Svapnesvara Bhasya rendered in English by Swami Hashananda and published by University of Mysore and also another one translated by Major B. D. Basu published within the series of the Sacred Books of the Hindus. But both the books are following the same Commentator and anyhow I could not agree with them because the commentator does not look to unadulterated devotion and at many places miserably misconstrued the original idea of the author particularly while dealing with the Chapter III. Further I come to know that Sri Naravana Thirtha and Baladeva Upadhyaya also wrote commentaries on this Shandilya Sutra but I could not look to them.
