The most simple & Sweet Commentary on the Bhagavad Gita by Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura, translated into English by HH Bhanu Swami Maharaj.

Dear Devotees,

Hare Krishna, Pranams.

At the Parampara Publishers we are pleased to inform you of the release of the new book "SARARTHA VARSINI TIKA" - "Srimad Bhagavad Gita" - with commentary by Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura, translated into English by HH Bhanu Swami Maharaj.

"Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura needs no introduction among the followers of Lord Caitanya, nor does his commentary on the Bhagavad Gita called Sarartha-varsini-tika. The title literally means "the commentary which showers the essential meaning". His commentary explains the Gita from the perspective of pure bhakti defined by Sri Rupa Gosvami as uttama bhakti, emphasizing the sweetness and mercy of Krsna as svayam bhagavan above all else, and expounding the philosophy of acintya bhedabheda of Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Though familiar with the commentaries of Ramanujacarya, Sridhara Svami, and Madhusudana Sarasvati, he presents an original and brilliant exposition on pure bhakti which is unique among the Gita commentaries for its simplicity and sweetness.

I hope that the readers will find the commentaries easy to understand, concise and a stimulus to expand their appreciation of Krsna. As many devotees are intently studying the Gita, I hope that this will supply them with new insights into Krsna's teachings and mercy. Forgive me for any mistakes in translation or printing. I am not an expert in sanskrt or in typing, but would like to offer this as an aid to the devotees' study of the Gita." - HH Bhanu Swami Maharaj.

Devotees have been eagerly waiting for its release and here it is NOW! We have rushed through the publication of the new book, to make it available during the installation ceremony and the festival. Look for us at the Temple courtyard or the Mini market and grab your copy!
