Weaving Together Srimad Bhagavatam’s first Four cantos into a flowing narrative of a story and philosophy, and incorporating relevant commentary from Vaishnav acharyas, this summary study assists readers in assimilating the Bhagavatam’s Profound message, As Suta Goswami declares: “Srimad – Bhagavatam is the spotless Purana it is most dear to the Vaishnavas because it describes the pure and supreme knowledge of the Paramhamsas….Anyone who Seriously tries to understand Srimad-Bhagavatam,Who Properly Hears and Chants it with devotion, becomes completely liberated” (Srimad Bhagavatam 12.13.18)
“Srimad-Bhagavatam is the literary incarnation of
Lord Sri Krsna and is therefore nondifferent from Him
[It] should be worshiped as respectfully as we
worship the lord……we can derive the ultimate
blessings of the lord through its careful and patient study.”
About H.G Bhurijana Prabhu
H.G.Bhurijana Prabhu first met Srila Prabhupada at 26 Second Ave, and was initiated by Srila Prabhupada in 1968. After preaching in Japan for about a year, in 1970 he opened ISKCON’s first Hong Kong center. Throughout the early 1970s Srila Prabhupada would many times meet with Bhurijana during Srila Prabhupada’s tours of the Far East: Hong Kong, Japan, Philippines, Fiji, Australia and New Zealand. In his last meeting in 1976, Bhurijana Prabhu was requested by Srila Prabhupada to help develop the educational system. Since then he has taught both academic and ashrama courses in Gita-Nagari and Vrindavana and has conducted several teacher training courses in Vrindavana. In 1987, in Vrindavana, he began the Vaisnava Institute for Higher Education, where he has taught courses in teaching, writing, and the main books of Srila Prabhupada — Bhagavad-gita As It Is, Srimad-Bhagavatam, The Nectar of Devotion, The Nectar of Instruction, and Sri Isopanisad.
To fulfill Srila Prabhupada’s desire, he is now organizing degree courses on Srila Prabhupada’s books, especially the first six cantos of the Bhagavatam. No wonder that his main topic at Govardhan Retreat is Bhagavatam. He has written several books, including The Art of Teaching, Surrender Unto Me (in-depth study of the Bhagavad-gita), Studying Srimad-Bhagavatam, My Glorious Master and “Unveiling His Lotus Feet” – in-depth study of the 1st 4 Cantos of Srimad-Bhagavatam.
