Bhaktivinoda Vani Vaibhava
By Isvara dasa
Sri Bhaktivinoda Vani Vaibhava, Divine Opulence of the Teachings of Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura (Volume One)
Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura (1838-1914) was one of the foremost acaryas of the Gaudiya Vaisnavas and the original pioneer of the modern day Hare Krishna movement. The essence of his teachings has been presented in question-and-answer format in this new book. The answers are directly quoted from his writings.
Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura Prabhupada said:
"Srila Thakura Bhaktivinoda has taken the trouble of meeting the perverse arguments of mental speculators by the superior transcendental logic of the Absolute Truth. It is thus possible for the average modern readers to profit by the perusal of his writings. That day is not far distant when the priceless volumes penned by Thakura Bhaktivinoda will be reverently translated, by the recipients of his grace, into all the languages of the world.
"The writings of Thakura Bhaktivinoda provide the golden bridge by which the mental speculators can safely cross the raging waters of fruitless empiric controversies that trouble the peace of those who choose to trust in their guidance for finding the Truth. As soon as the sympathetic reader is in a position to appreciate the sterling quality of Thakura Bhaktivinoda's philosophy the entire vista of the revealed literatures of the world will automatically open out to his reclaimed vision."
This book has been collected from many wonderful jewels of the literary ocean of Om Visnupada Srila Thakura Bhaktivinoda Mahasaya and includes his essays, stories, novels, books, songs, and poems. Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura Prabhupada ordered one of his foremost disciples, Sripada Sundarananda Vidyavinoda Prabhu, a staunch follower of Srila Bhaktivinoda's instructions, to compile this book.
This first volume covers sambandha. The other volumes, covering abhidheya and prayojana, will be published shortly. By reading this book, one gets a clear understanding of all aspects of sambandha and a deep feeling of the mood and character of Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura.
