This exceptional book, a compilation of five essays, is glorified by all those in the Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇava sampradāya for fearlessly glorifying and protecting its philosophical principles. The five topics are (1) The Śrī Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇava Sampradāya and Sannyāsa, (2) Pāñcarātrika and Bhāgavata Guru-paramparā, (3) The Gauḍīya Sampradāya is in the Line of Madhvācārya, (4) Babājī- veṣa and Siddha-praṇālī and (5) Eligibility to Hear Rāsa-līlā Kathā. Each refutation is elaborately and conclusively proven with evidence from śāstra.

"With folded hands, it is our earnest prayer that, after deeply and seriously studying this Prabandha-pañcakam, the camaraderie within the pure sampradāya may be protected and preserved." [Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja]

fearless_prince

From the ancient Vedic scriptures of India comes the famous epic of Prince Prahlad.

In a previous era - long, long ago - there was an evil monarch named Hiranya-kashipu, who succeeded in seizing control of the entire universe. He was extremely cruel, and due to his darkened heart he made life impossible for everyone - from animals to demigods. Only his son Prahlad, who was always absorbed in meditating on the Lord, remained undisturbed by his father's reign of terror. Seeing the boy's natural predilection for spiritual life, and thus taking him as an archenemy, he tried to kill his own child, but was unsuccessful every time.

Through his resolute faith and constant meditation, the young prince conquered fear and remained untouched by death. By following Prahlads's teachings, one can become fearless pure devotee of the Lord.

sri-raya-ramananda-samvad-eng

More than five hundred years ago, the Supreme Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu sat with His intimate devotee Śrī Rāmānanda Rāya on the banks of the river Godāvarī. For the benefit of all living beings, the Lord inquired from him about the ultimate goal of life, as if ignorant.

Śrī Rāmānanda’s initial response did not satisfy Lord Caitanya, who probed for a deeper answer. Again and again He rejected the goal Śrī Rāmānanda put forth, calling it external. Finally, when Śrī Rāmānanda touched upon the natural, eternal religion of the soul, the Lord was somewhat satisfied. His subsequent inquiries continued to depths that astounded and delighted His devotee, who replied wonderfully to each of them.
