Commentaries on 5th Canto Bhagavatam Cosmology
Commentaries on 5th Canto Bhagavatam Cosmology
Description
Back of the Book

The structure of the universe and calculations of planetary movements have been a matter of great interest to many ancient civilizations. The Vedic scriptures give ample evidence of this interest. The ancient calculations give similar results to modern methods. Whereas the Vedic description of the structure of the universe differs greatly from the modern conception. Some persons will thus reject the Vedic conception as imaginary. At least some explanation for the difference seems needed. This can only be done by first examining the available scriptures on this subject to obtain accurate knowledge of the conceptions. Since the Bhagavatam devotes many chapters to the structure of the universe, Bhagavatam should be studied. Thus the translation of the various commentaries on the chapters dealing with this subject is valuable. The present publication of these commentaries is a major step to help us properly understand the Vedic conception of the universe and based upon this, we can attempt to correlate it with modern conceptions, or let it stand on its own merits. That will be left for the reader to judge.

I bought DVs supposed to receive 55 in the set instead got 48 and was in bad condition appears used and dusty. I contacted the seller to return the product and the gave 100% credit with apologies. I am very grateful because I had bought and will continue to buy products here and have never received defective product until now. I bought paintings saris..etc and always pleased with my purchase until now. But I want to say a public thank you to whom it may concern for giving me the credit. Thank you. Navieta.
