Brihad Bhagavatamrtam

The essence of all scriptures such as the Vedas, Vedānta-sūtras, Purāṇas, Itihāsas and so on is Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam. By the churning of this Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam the present book has manifested. Therefore, its name is Śrī Bṛhad-Bhāgavatāmṛta. In this book, the subject matters pertaining to devotional service are manifest in every place.

The setting is based on a conversation between Śrī Jaimini and Śrī Janamejaya and Śrī Parīkṣit and Śrī Uttara. On hearing Śrīmad- Bhāgavatam from the mouth of Śrī Śukadeva Gosvāmī and before the arrival of the Takṣaka serpent, the mother of King Parīkṣit, Śrī Uttara-devī, asked him a question, “O Son, whatever you have heard from Śrī Śukadeva Gosvāmī, tell me its essence in a simple, easy-to-understand language.” This book begins with that same question.

Padyavali 150

This book is an anthology of verses written by many different poets who lived in different centuries and in different parts of India. Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī gathered all these poems and wove them together, creating an extraordinarily rich brocaded tapestry. The result is a treasury of unending delight that sheds light on the highest, most confidential moods of Vraja. Padyāvalī is one of Rūpa Gosvāmī’s earlier books, and is considered by some to be his most important one. Why? Because herein is the first recording of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu’s Śrī Śikṣāṣṭakam, and Śrī Kṛṣṇadāsa Kavirāja took it from here for his Śrī Caitanya-caritāmṛta.

By Sripad Bhaktivedanta Madhava Maharaja

Guru-seva is the backbone of bhajana, or devotional absorption. Whoever wants to enter into the realm of bhajana must first dedicate his life to the service of a bona fide guru. Such a guru will never consider the disciple to be his or her own property. Rather, he will consider the disciple to belong to Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and the Divine Couple, Sri Sri Radha-Krsna. He will transfer the disciple's attachment and dedication to Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and Sri Radha-Krsna. Whoever reads this work, will obtain a clear conception of the subject of the guru in Gaudiya Vaisnava thought. For those eager to attain bhakti, this book is therefore a lighthouse that guides the aspirant to spiritual perfection. Without guru-seva, no one can advance in Krsna consciousness.
