Book Description

Fallen, fallen, still fallen am I! Who else except Sri Gaurhari's Mercy-Embodiment Sri Nityananda's Other self Gurudeva His Divine Grace Srimad Bhakti Vilas Tirtha Goswami Maharaj who is none but Vimalamanjari, eternally waiting upon the Transcendental Erotic Dalliance of Radha-Govinda at Their Sportive Land of Braja - out of his bounteous mercy, operated upon my eyes with the collieries of intuitive wisdom for having a glimpse of the Divine Sport - although I am the vilest creature!

A vile destitute, a dwarf as I am, what a foolish gesture to make a high jump to catch the moon. A poor soul as I am how could aspire after the gain of Krishna-Prema. Where the Bhagavata Itself, at its very outset, says: “Him the sages and gods are puzzled to know". Where angels fear to tread devils try to trespass.

Then how such a fool vouchsafed to undertake this task, is a mystery which I felt not proper on my part to disclose as it might be bringing spiritual conceit but subsequently I realized that it would be an act undone to my spiritual Guru which might stand as an obstacle on the path of my spiritual progress ; without any reserve I record the fact that one day in a spiritual vision my divine master commanded me to follow him and soon I could see myself present along with him at an enchanting Dalliance of the Rasa raj and Mahabharata at that Transcendental Sportive Land of Vraja. What a marvelous Sight, but soon I lost myself in ecstatic rapture. Alas, I lost the vision and lamented so bitterly when my divine master once again appearing before me behest me to penetrate upon Srimad Bhagavatam and commissioned me to undertake this task and yet another one, for the attainment of final beatitude or summon bonum of my life. Oh what a foolish gesture for a dwarf' to catch the moon My vile body of flesh full of sorrow. lust, anger and thirst Yet my down-cast mind is held in the net of Radha- Madhav’s Lore Which soothes me wholly and sets me free with heart so thrilled o Gurudas! thou art the dearest confidant of Sri Radha- Madhava When wilt thou open the gate of that Vrindabana unto this chit!

Neither any good quality nor any literacy have I, but as it were, the Grace of my Guru made a dumb converted into a bard, so it is the Grace and Grace alone which worked in me to render this service. I have followed in my rendering the wonderful annotation of most illustrious Vaishnava Savant His Divine Grace Sri Srimad Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Goswami Thakur, the Founder of Sri Chaitanya Math and its branches Sri Gaudiya Maths, which I hope will marvel the readers when they go through this book.

There is no doubt many beautiful English editions of Bhagavatam easily available in the market. Then what was the need of the present one? This question I have replied in the Introduction itself. In my Introduction on this book I have critically reviewed the works on Srimad Bhagavatam by many of the great scholars and personages with a sincere motto to make myself dove-tailed in "search for Truth" particularly I have got-a very sophisticated mind that whenever I read any theistic literature rendered ambiguously tampering the original exposition or thought to the contradiction of the Bhakti to the Exalted Primeval Lord Sri Krishna, I feel extreme pain in my heart. Whereas in all the theistic literature, I find the exposition of Bhakti alone because the very theism is lost where the Served, servitor and service - this relationship is removed.
