Srimad Bhagavad Gita
This present edition of Śrīmad Bhagavad-gītā contains the essential meanings given in the commentaries of Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī Ṭhākura and Śrīla Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura.
It is further illuminated by the exegesis of Śrīla Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja.
This translation is complimentary to the authoritative and popular Bhagavad-gītā As It Is by Śrīla A. C. Bhaktivedānta Swāmī Prabhupāda.
Bhagavad Gita As It Is
The Bhagavad-gita is universally renowned as the jewel of India’s spiritual wisdom.
Spoken by Lord Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead to His intimate disciple Arjuna, the Gita’s seven hundred concise verses provide a definitive guide to the science of self realisation.
No other philosophical or religious work reveals, in such a lucid and profound way, the nature of consciousness, the self, the universe and the Supreme.
Secrets of the Undiscovered Self
The purpose of this booklet is to introduce the reader to the beauty and wonder of his or her own natural being. Sages say that our souls are each more brilliant and powerful than thousands of suns, and that we come to experience this by hearing from those who are self-realized.
Secrets of the Undiscovered Self was kindly presented in the form of a discourse by such a selfrealized personality, Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja, a pre-eminent saint and one of the foremost teachers of divine wisdom in the present day.
This discourse was given in March 2002, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
The Way of Love
“To make your life successful, happy and peaceful, try to give all your love and affection to God, Kṛṣṇa. Show that love to all beings, and try to engage your entire being in helping them.
One who comes to others with love has nothing to take, but everything to give.”
In this booklet Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja explains the process to realize that selfless love.
This book consists of a collection of instructions by Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja on how truly humble and harmonious dealings are conducive to our practice of bhakti.
His purpose in giving us the tools by which we can have proper and affectionate dealings with each other is to ensure our strong and steady progress toward achieving the ultimate goal of life.
The ultimate goal of life of course being the subject of all the books presented by ETaV.
The Origin of Rathayatra
In Purī, India, more than fifty-thousand people yearly attend the ancient ratha-yātrā festival to take darśana of Lord Jagannātha on His chariot, and ten times that view it from other places in India and around the world. Still, the deep significance of ratha-yātrā, being most confidential, is not widely known.
The Origin of Ratha-yātrā is rich with this significance, giving Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇavas an invaluable perspective of this festival.
The book contains three separate ancient histories of ratha-yātrā as well as associated pastimes that are abundant with philosophical truths.
Journey of the Soul
We trust various persons of authority to inform us about material subject matters, but whom shall we trust in regard to transcendental subject matters and the transcendental world?
We cannot experience transcendence with any of our material senses. How then, can we have an idea of that pure reality? We can see the body, but not the soul. How can we verify that there is a soul beyond matter?
Though God is everywhere, we don’t see Him. How then, can we determine who is God? Although it is evident that we cannot control the world, how can we trust that there is a God from whom this creation has come, and how can we be confident that it is He who controls it?
Millions of people are born daily, and millions also die. Who controls this overwhelming tide of birth and death? Sea waves come on schedule, the sun appears on schedule, and new days come with continuous regularity. We do not control those rhythms, yet somehow, everything is maintained.
This compelling narrative based on spiritually developed personalities and others in cultured Bengali life a few hundred years ago, serves as the basis of Śrīla Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura’s presentation of the Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇava philosophy, from its basic tenets to its esoteric pinnacle.
Woven into the story are penetrating philosophical questions that are commonly pondered and eternally relevant. The depth of the answers gives clarity and direction to the quest to establish ourselves in our jaiva-dharma, our soul’s constitutional function.
