Srimad Bhagavata (An Introduction)
Look Inside the Book
Description
Publisher’s Note

Srimad Bhagavata occupies a central place for all followers of bhakti (devotion). It deals with the various aspects of bhakti in details and illustrates the ideal and the way to supreme bhakti through the life and teaching of Sri Krishna the Godhead personified. Its sublime spiritual beauty, graceful literary style and poetic appeal have no parallels in the Puranic literature. No wonder, it is highly revered and widely read by all those who seek God through the path of love and devotion.

We published a verse-by-verse English translation of Srimad Bhagavata by Swami Tapasyanadaji in 1980. This highly readable and lucid translation in four volumes was much acclaimed by scholars and commoners alike. Since then, it has undergone several reprints. The learned translator, Vice-President of the Ramakrishna Order (1985-1991) and an erudite scholar had written a comprehensive but concise introduction to the translation which is in itself a masterpiece in scholarship and spiritual insight.

For a long time a need was left to reach this introduction to a wider readership. Besides giving all relevant details about the historically and origin of Srimad Bhagavata and its Philosophy, it serves as a good appetizer for undertaking a complete study of this scripture.

We are glad to place this writing in the present form with the fervent hope that it will receive the attention it deserves.

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA

Thank you so much for your wonderful store and wonderful service. A Naga Kanya stat arrived yesterday. The sculpture was very well packaged, and it is very beautiful. I am very very happy with the statue and very grateful to your company for providing access to such lovely works of art. Thank you for providing truly beautiful objects and for providing great service. All the very best to you,
