REVELATIONS —A comparative religious study between —-JUDAISM, VEDAS, ISLAM and CHRISTIANITY
The following scholar has praised the book: “It is rare to find a work which seeks to integrate Hindu and Jewish thought. The book is a rich interfaith exploration.” Professor Dan Cohn-Sherbok Dan Cohn-Sherbok is a rabbi of Reform Judaism, a Jewish theologian and a prolific religious author who has written and edited over 80 books which have been translated into Russian, Greek, Bulgarian, Hebrew, French, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, Swedish, Japanese, Turkish, Persian and German. He is Professor Emeritus of Judaism at the University of Wales, Honorary Professor at Aberystwyth University and a Research Fellow at Heythrop College, University of London and the Centre of Religions for Peace and Reconciliation, University of Winchester. “In this thought-provoking book the author shows how the concept of demigods was once integral to Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. He demonstrates how the existence of demigods can be compatible with the existence of a Supreme God, giving the Vedic religion as an example of this.” Michael A. Cremo Author of Forbidden Archaeology, Human Devolution, etc. Michael A. Cremo is a researcher associate of the Bhaktivedanta Institute specializing in the history and philosophy of science.

Untold Stories From The Ramayana
Description There are innumerable Vaikuntha planets, and in each planet there is a predominating deity who is an expansion of Vishnu. He has three expansions, and then there are the quadruple expansions, and then there are servants and devotees. In this way the Vaikuntha planets are full of activity. The top of Vaikuntha, before one reaches Goloka, the gateway to Goloka is Ayodhya. In Ayodhya is Lord Shri Ramacandra, and Laksmana, Bharata, Satrughna, Sumantra, Dasaratha, Kausalya, all these characters we find in Ramayana are eternal citizens of this Ayodhya. And from this planet Lord Ramacandra expands into His Rama-avatar, through milk ocean Vishnu, Ksirodakasayi Vishnu. In every Treta-yuga there is Rama-avatar. One may think, “Oh that must be boring. Every time the same activity.” But it is never boring. How many times have we heard these Ramayana stories, but still when someone is reading Ramayana, everyone comes. To hear is not boring, so to experience it can’t be boring at all. That is the proof. Ramayana has been heard generations and generations. In all countries. In Indonesia they have their Ramayana. In Malaysia they have their Ramayana. In Thailand, even in Jamaica and Africa. Just a little bit different for every culture. Indonesian Ravana is a big crocodile, and they carry him on sticks. In Bangkok, Thailand all the roads are names Rama 1, Rama 2, Rama 5 etc. So the purpose of the avatar is described in Brahma-samhita: lilayatena bhuvanani jayaty ajasram / govindam adi-purusam tam aham bhajami. The living entities have forgotten their relation with Krishna. And they have been conquered by maya, illusory energy. Krishna bahirmukha haya bhoga vancha kori / nikata stha maya tare japatiya dhare. The conditioned soul has been caught by maya. The Lord comes to reconquer them. That is the mission of the avatar incarnation of the Lord.

Gita Wisdom: Insights into Sacred Teachings
It is dawn, just before the start of an epic war. Two armies comprising nearly four million soldiers fill a vast battlefield. Warrior elephants – their armored tusks glistening in the sunlight – trumpet and stomp the ground. Horses tethered to gold-plated chariots pull at their reins, anxious for the attack. Soldiers beat drums, rattle spears, ready bows and arrows. Between the two armies, noble prince Arjuna looks out from his chariot and envisions the destruction to come. This war is a last chance for his family to regain the kingdom stolen from them fourteen years before by ruthless cousins. Yet, in these final moments, he falters. He turns to his friend and mentor Krishna, who serves as Arjuna’s charioteer, and confesses to feelings of horror over the lives that will be lost and shame over his participation. What follows is a two-hour dialogue, known as the Bhagavad Gita, or “Song of the Supreme Person,” one of the world’s most renowned testimonies to the transformative power of love. In this highly readable introduction to India’s classic yoga text, scholar-practitioner Joshua M. Greene has created a bridge between the Gita’s millennial wisdom and the world we know. Through crisp renderings of verses and insightful commentary, the author sheds a bright light on profound concepts. In the tradition of theologians writing for uninitiated readers, he has provided a compulsively readable edition of the Gita, one that lures readers into the very human dimension of its sacred teachings.

ISLAM And The VEDAS

Stop Worrying Start Living
What is implied by the title of this book - “Stopworrying and start living”? The author His Grace Sankarshan Das Adhikariexplains, what it implies is, that in our present state, we are worrying; weare not living. Another implication is that if you worry, you are dead! Truelife means without worries. An intelligent person actually analyses, “Why am Isuffering?” He is in a better position than the person who thinks he is happy.In other words, the person who is in the state of illusory happiness - that isthe worst state. That is the lowest state of consciousness you can have.Someone who realizes, “Hey, I’m suffering here. Why am I suffering?”- is in ahigher state of consciousness. Even though he is tortured by his anxieties, heis seeking a way out of them. So his position is better. He realizes thismaterial world is a suffering position and is looking for the answers. That person who thinks he is happy…. Of course,his happiness is fully dependent on all these material conditions. As soon ashe loses his job, he is in complete anxiety. He thinks, “I have a job. I havemoney. I have my material sense gratification. Therefore, I am happy”. But thathappiness is based on a temporary situation which can be finished at anyminute. The person who realizes that this temporary happiness is useless, it’sa facade, it’s not real, is in a better position. Because that person can thenseek out, “What is the actual means of happiness? What is the actual state?”

SRI BRHAD BHAGAVATAMRTAM (THREE VOLUME SET)
The monumental 3-volume magna-opus of Srila Sanatana Goswami. TRANSLATION AND COMMENTARY BY GOPIPARANADHANA DASA. Sri Brhad-Bhagavatamrta is an epic work composed in Sanskrit during the sixteenth century by Sanatana Goswami, one of Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s leading disciples. It is one of the first books written by any of the Six Goswamis of Vrindavan. Sri Brhad-bhagavatamrta is a transcendental literature that any serious student of Krishna theology or any serious practitioner of bhakti tradition must hold dear to the heart. In the form of two narratives, Srila Sanatana Goswami had described the science of bhakti through the journey of a devotee who tries to understand the devotees of Krishna by way of examination of various categories of devotees and through a sweet narrative of how a devotee attains spiritual perfection. It is pilgrims progress. Spiritual perfection takes efforts and these efforts are step by step process leading to the greatest perfection. The epic, Mahabharat, has said, mahajano yena gatha sa pantha, that the path of the greats must be followed to attain success. Sri Brhad-bhagavatamrta therefore provides such a platform. Sri Brhad-bhagavatamrta is a sacred text for practitioners of Gaudiya Vaishnavism. Along with Hari-bhakti-vilasa, it is one of the most important works of Vaishnava theologian Sanatana Goswami. While Hari-Bhakti-Vilasa sets out guidance for Vaishnava behaviour and ritual, Sri Brhad-bhagavatamrta contains an analysis of the teachings of Lord Chaitanya from an ontological and metaphysical perspective. In the first part of Sri Brhad-bhagavatamrta, Srila Sanatana Goswami has described a conversation between Parikshit and his mother, Uttara. It took place after Parikshit heard the Bhagavata Purana from Śukadeva Goswami. Uttara asked her son to explain the essence of Bhagavata Purana, and Parikshit revealed to her the stages of confidential Bhakti. He told her a story about how Narada was looking for greatest devotee of Krishna. The Great Rishi began his search with devotees of Krishna whose Bhakti was mixed with karma and jnana (Brahma and Shiva), then went up to Shanta-rasa (Prahlada), Dasya-rasa (Hanuman), Sakhya-rasa (Arjuna), and finally came to the greatest devotee of Krishna – Uddhava, who always longed to be in Vrindavan, and showed that the highest level of Bhakti is the love of the gopis for Krishna. The second part of the Sri Brhad-bhagavatamrta tells us about the glory and bliss of the spiritual abode Goloka, as well as of the process of renunciation of the material world, true knowledge, Bhakti Yoga, love for Krishna and implementation of the higher purpose of life. The second part contains the narrative of a wandering cowherd boy, Gopal Kumar who received a mantra from a resident of Vrindavan, travelling from one planetary system to another, exploring the different levels of consciousness of living beings. His spiritual odyssey covers heavenly planets, Brahmaloka, Shivaloka, Vaikuntha, and ultimately Goloka. Sri Brhad-bhagavatamrta contains descriptions of the various categories of devotees of Krishna: close devotees, and devotees of the closest devotees. His Divine Grace, Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada in his comments to the Sri Chaitanya-charitamrita (Adi Lila, 5.203) wrote in praise of the wirings of Srila Sanatana Goswami as follows: Śrī Sanātana Gosvāmī Prabhu, the teacher of the science of devotional service, wrote several books, of which the Bṛhad-bhāgavatāmṛta is very famous; anyone who wants to know about the subject matter of devotees, devotional service and Kṛṣṇa must read this book. Sanātana Gosvāmī also wrote a special commentary on the Tenth Canto of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam known as the Daśama-ṭippanī, which is so excellent that by reading it one can understand very deeply the pastimes of Kṛṣṇa in His exchanges of loving activities. Another famous book by Sanātana Gosvāmī is the Hari-bhakti-vilāsa, which states the rules and regulations for all divisions of Vaiṣṇavas, namely, Vaiṣṇava householders, Vaiṣṇava brahmacārīs, Vaiṣṇava vānaprasthas and Vaiṣṇava sannyāsīs. This book was especially written, however, for Vaiṣṇava householders. Śrīla Raghunātha dāsa Gosvāmī has described Sanātana Gosvāmī in his prayer Vilāpa-kusumāñjali, verse six, where he has expressed his obligation to Sanātana Gosvāmī in the following words: vairāgya-yug-bhakti-rasaṁ prayatnair  apāyayan mām anabhīpsum andham kṛpāmbudhir yaḥ para-duḥkha-duḥkhī  sanātanas taṁ prabhum āśrayāmi “I was unwilling to drink the nectar of devotional service possessed of renunciation, but Sanātana Gosvāmī, out of his causeless mercy, made me drink it, even though I was otherwise unable to do so. Therefore he is an ocean of mercy. He is very compassionate to fallen souls like me, and thus it is my duty to offer my respectful obeisances unto his lotus feet.” Kṛṣṇadāsa Kavirāja Gosvāmī also, in the last section of the Caitanya-caritāmṛta, specifically mentions the names of Rūpa Gosvāmī, Sanātana Gosvāmī and Śrīla Jīva Gosvāmī and offers his respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of these three spiritual masters, as well as Raghunātha dāsa. Śrīla Raghunātha dāsa Gosvāmī also accepted Sanātana Gosvāmī as the teacher of the science of devotional service SRI BRHAD BHAGAVATAMRTA IS IN TWO PARTS: Part One: Finding the Essence of the Supreme Lord's Mercy: Śrī-bhagavat kṛpā-sāra-nidhāra 1.

Sri Manah-siksa: Splendid Instructions to the Mind
This is a 2016 edition produced by Padma, Inc. and compiled by Urmila Devi Dasi. It includes commentaries by Jayadvaita Swami, Sivarama Swami, Sacinandana Swami, and Bhaktivijnana Goswami. The seekers of truth, with great hope, embark on the path of spiritual enlightenment. Their hearts fill with affection for guides and teachers, associates on the journey, and self-realized souls. Their aim becomes pure love of God, without even attraction for enjoying divine opulences. But the path has traps and tricksters. There is a thief who appears to be an eye-catching amorous partner, and a hungry tigress who lures with discussions of eternal light and peace. A jewel of love enables the seekers to recognize and avoid those, but will they succumb to the gang of robbers with strong ropes before they swim through the ocean of love and drink the radiant nectar that opens the door to perfection? Many treatises on spiritual life seem to make everything seem so easy—a simple formula for instant success if one is just sincere enough. Other books cater to the hopeful who keep failing and want formulas of reassurance. Yet other authors speak to the disappointed to condemn spiritual realization as a myth, which cheaters propagate for personal gain. In contrast, Splendid Instructions to the Mind (Manah-shiksha) is at once both hopefully inspiring and blatantly honest. To read it well entails an authentic appraisal of the state of one’s heart and mind, an experience of recognition and acceptance that is at once sweet and sour, comforting and uncompromising. To read it well entails receiving many glowing gifts to triumph over our lower nature and reveal our true spiritual essence, so that all struggles and illusion become a distant dream. Manah-shiksha helps us make sure our compass is set to the right direction, and our heart is attuned to the mood of the spiritual world. It allows us to recognize the increasingly subtle thieves and traps on the path, and employ counteracting measures, finally showing us how the fully illuminated and humble soul enters into loving perfection. In this book, we learn about affection and attachment so we can gain genuine love of ourselves and others. Through respect and integrity, we escape the pitfalls of arrogance and deceit. These verses are a complete step-by-step guidebook on the inner, esoteric path of spontaneous love for God. Raghunatha Dasa Gosvami liberally used metaphor, poetry, and literary ornaments to unlock our full potential. Bhaktivinoda Thakura has instructed, “Shri Manah-shiksha has laid down a systematic procedure for one to enter into and become absorbed in the pastimes of Shri Shri Radha-Krishna; one should follow it without guile.” In volume two, each of Raghunatha Dasa Gosvami’s verses is followed by commentary by Bhaktivinoda Thakura—both prose and song. This edition is the first time his song commentary has been published in English. The verses and Bhaktivinoda’s commentaries are richly illustrated with over a hundred drawings by various international artists. Additionally, this volume contains commentaries by contemporary senior practitioners of bhakti yoga from around the globe: Jayadvaita Swami, Shivarama Swami, Shacinandana Swami, Bhaktivijnana Goswami, and Urmila Devi Dasi. Their extensive commentaries delight and entertain while inspiring and clarifying. They easily enable the modern reader to put this classic book into practice in today’s world.

SRIMAD BHAGAVATAM, A SYMPHONY OF COMMENTARIES ON THE TENTH CANTO (VOLUME 1)
Srīmad Bhāgavatam A Symphony of Commentaries on the Tenth Canto (Volume 1) Srila Prabhupada had written, "Within the past five hundred years, many erudite scholars of Acaryas like Jiva Gosvami, Sanatana Gosvami, Visvanatha Cakravarti, Vallabhacarya and many other distinguished scholars even after the time of Lord Caitanya made elaborate commentaries on the Bhagavatam. And the serious student would do well to attempt to go through them to better relish the transcendental messages." Srimad Bhagavatam is the nectar churned from the ocean of all revealed scriptures, the ripened fruit of the Vedas and its syllables rain pure love for the Almighty. This unalloyed spotless transcendental knowledge flows endlessly from Lord Krishna to the exalted and pure souls whose life and soul is Lord Krishna and such pure souls become a transparent medium for us to understand the intricate dynamics of the nectar of devotion and the nectarean Almighty Lord Sri Krishna. The treasured nectar of Bhagavatam has been impeccably churned by the scholarly stalwarts of Gaudiya Vaisnava lineage in the Symphony of Commentaries of the Tenth Canto of Srimad Bhagavatam. The Bhagavata Purana is the foremost Vedic scripture, and the tenth canto encompasses the highest sweetness and the topmost philosophy. The Bhagavatam thus effuses the very nature of Sri Krsna. The four Vaisnava traditions are represented here by the commentaries of Madhvacarya and others. The syntactical connection of each verse is shown, along with the name of the meter. The sequence of Krsna’s pastimes in Vraja is given in the introduction, and so are the Acaryas’ invocatory verses. The magic of Krsna’s flute sparked a symphony of commentaries on His pastimes. This symphony resonates with the rasika bhaktas. Among the Twelve Cantos of Srimad Bhagavatam, the tenth Canto is the casket of precious jewels, as it is the treasure trove of the pastimes of Lord Sri Krishna Himself. The Symphony of Commentaries of the Tenth Canto elucidates the track which leads the reader to expunge every tinge of doubt about the appearance of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Sri Krishna. The commentaries enable the readers to decipher the Etymology of Bhagavatam and other such terminologies, makes the nectarean contents further transcendental and establishes that though, due to time, the anatomy of presentation of the nectarean knowledge might have diversified, but at the core, it is profound and non-different. Stalwarts like the Six Gosvamis were articulately pursued by their true successors namely, Visvanatha Chakravarti, Baladeva Vidyabhusana and many others, whose commentaries not only clear all clouds and enable better understanding but also establishes the richness of the Gaudiya Vaisnava Lineage. The rich commentaries of the Crème de la crème of Gaudiya Vaisnava lineage ensemble hit the paradigm of understanding the intricacies of Srimad Bhagavatam. Not only does each stalwart belong to a different era, but the very expression of each individual, becomes an unfathomable ocean of reverential love and the resplendent knowledge of Godhead. Be it Srila Sridhar Svami, Srila Visvanatha Chakrabarti Thakur, Srila Sanatana Gosvami, Srila Jiva Gosvami, Baladeva Vidyabhusana, Srinatha Pandit, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur or Srila Vallabhacarya, they simply nailed it! Any form of expression in any language would fall short when penning down the glories of The Supreme Almighty, Sri Krsna’s appearance. But these individuals from different eras where classic or medieval forms of expression were prevalent, uphold the glory and significance of Lord Krsna’s appearance magnificently. The common line that runs through all of them is the profound expertise each had over the Sanskrit language. Keeping any text consistently intact, without any personal interpretation is a difficult task. In this case, every individual prudent Vaisnava have given word for word meanings, translations and purports to all the verses without a tinge of any sort of personal transliteration. For any Vaisnava or practicing Vaisnava, scholar or linguist, the book Symphony of Commentaries on the Tenth Canto of Srimad Bhagavatam is an endless reservoir of nectar of devotion. The reader will not only experience bliss but will realize the limitless girth and immeasurable depth of the love these Gaudiya Vaisnava leaders had for the Supreme Lord, but will be inspired by and appreciate the knowledge and instructions the ripened fruit of Vedas, Srimad Bhagavatam offer to every reader which in turn makes the individual fall in love with the reservoir of love, Sri Krsna Himself. The commentators are: Sridhara Swami, Sanatana Goswami, Vallabhacarya, Visvanatha Chakravarti Thakur, Jiva Goswami, Baladeva Vidyabhusana, Srinatha Pandita, Vijayadhvaja Tirtha, Vira-Raghava, on occasion Madhavacarya and finally Srila Bhaktisiddhanta. This first volume covers Chapters 1-3, of the 90 Chapters of the Tenth Canto.

SRI LAGHU BHAGAVATAMRTA
After several years of hard work, the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust edition of the book has finally come off the press. Laghu Bhagavtamrta is a posthumous work of Gopiparanadhana Dasa, the famed BBT Sanskrit translator and commentator. The Laghu (small) Bhāgavatāmṛta is Rūpa Gosvāmī's literary offering to his brother Sanātana Gosvāmī, who wrote the popular Bṛhad (great) Bhāgavatāmṛta. In it he wished to elaborate on Bṛhad-bhāgavatāmṛta's description of the different forms of Bhagavān (God) and His loving interaction with various groups of His devotees. The book is divided into two parts - Part 1 introduces the reader to the many forms of Bhagavān and His avatars. Part 2 classifies His devotees according to the depth of their devotion. The original text was translated and commented upon by His Grace Gopīparāṇadhana Dāsa. The book's numerous appendices were completed by Girirāja Publishing's researchers after Gopīparāṇadhana's untimely departure. A foreword to the book was written by Dr. Edwin Bryant.
