Shri Mathure is an Engineer by profession. He creditably rose to the highest post in the Sanitary Engineering and Public Health Department of the erstwhile Gwalior State and thereafter in the Madhya Bharat State. Since his superannuation, many years ago, he has been leading a well-earned retired life in quietude. He is noble to the core. He leads a very simple life which should serve as an example. All his thoughts and deeds are soaked into the nectar of Bhagvat Dharma.
It is, therefore, natural that whatever has come from his pen is bound to impress the reader deeply and to lend inspirations in his spiritual development.
Spiritual studies should broaden the outlook and must be used to promote love among all individuals, shedding off social, sectarian or other separatist ideas. Life itself is light of Love which makes it warm and luminous.
In the history of religious literature the VEDAS (Shrutis) are said to be the oldest and the wisest. However, it is not easy to comprehend the subtle truths propounded in them. Veda Vyas composed eighteen PURANAS to expound with all ease the fundamentals depicted in the Shrutis in order to popularise them. The Puranas occupy an outstanding position. The MAHA-BHARATA written by Veda Vyas is considered to be an encyclopedia of all knowledge, which unfolds divine secrets. There-after the great Muni Narada impressed on Veda Vyas with the need for condensing spiritual ways of life and for reciting the glory of Vasudeva. To sing the glory of Vasudeva is the remedy for miseries of mankind. Creation, preservation and dissolution of the Universe proceed from Bhagvan. Accordingly, Veda Vyas composed SHRIMADBHAGVAT MAHAPURANAM. As it speaks of the glory of Bhagvan Vishnu it is called BHAGVAT. Among narratives of philosophy are interposed religion and legend through stories, fables, fairy tales, and anecdotes.
The Bhagvat is exponent of Devotion coupled with Know-ledge. In his illuminating discourse to his school-mates, Prahlad enunciates inter alia.
