Translated by Swami Prabhavananda, 320 Pages, Paperback.
After the Upanishads and the Bhagavadgita, the Srimad Bhagavatam is the most authoritative of the Indian Scriptures. By means of stories from the lives of Avataras, sages, devotees, and kings, it Popularizes the truths contained in Vedas. Its peculiar excellence is that it reconciles the heart with the head, devotion with learning. "It is fried in the butter of Knowledge,"says Sri Ramakrishna, latest of Indian prophets, "and steeped in the honey of love."
