• Read all the enthralling pastimes of the Supreme Lord in the MANVANTARAS of the current day of Lord Brahma in BHAGAVATA SUBODHINI Canto 8, in its usual colorful and concise form with verse-by-verse overview in sections and subsections, summary tables, flowcharts, nectar slokas and thematic compilations, based on the commentaries of SRILA PRABHUPADA and SRILA VISVANATHA CAKRAVARTI THAKUR, as presented by Gauranga Darshan Das.

    ‘Bhagavata Subodhini’ is a systematic study guide to Srimad Bhagavatam. Bhagavata Subodhini unveils the exciting structure and flow of the Bhagavatam cantos by giving the connections between chapters, subsections and verses in a lucid manner for easy readability and assimilation of its contents and delight in the splendor of its message.

    ‘Bhagavata Subodhini Canto 8’ is the sixth volume of the series, and gives a bird’s eye view of the expanse and the depth of the enchanting episodes in the Eighth Canto of Srimad Bhagavatam. The Eighth Canto of the Bhagavatam vividly presents the theme of Manvantara or the reign of the Manus. Manus are the administrators of the universe, appointed by the Supreme Lord. There are fourteen Manus who rule in one kalpa or a day of Lord Brahma that spans over 1000 catur-yugas (catur-yuga is the combination of the four yugas namely Satya, Treta, Dvapara and Kali). Thus, each Manu rules for about seventy-one catur-yugas. In every manvantara, there are six kinds of personalities who manage various functions of the universe. They are: the Manu, the sons of Manu, the demigods, Indra, the seven great sages and the Manvantara avatara of the Lord. In this canto, Sukadeva Goswami describes the six types of main persons in each of the fourteen Manvantaras (past, present and future) in the current day of Brahma, and elaborates selected pastimes of the Lord in some manvantaras. Thus, we hear the episodes of Svayambhuva Manu, Gajendra, Samudra Manthan, Mohini Murti bewildering Lord Siva, Bali Maharaja’s deliverance by Lord Vamanadeva and the pastimes of Matsya avatara. In all these episodes, the Lord’s protection aspect is vividly described.

    Maintaining a similar style like that of his previous volumes of Bhagavata Subodhini, Gauranga Darshan Das presents this volume on the Eighth Canto with simplified flow charts, summary tables, diagrams, additional notes from the commentaries of acharyas, along with interesting thematic compilations and many other features.

    Bhagavata Subodhini attempts to become a constant companion for all Bhagavatam lovers as acknowledged by several readers across the globe. Bhagavata Subodhini simplifies the apparent complexity in understanding the Bhagavatam, by integrating the explanations of our beloved acharyas, thus catering for the taste and needs of avid readers, scholars and newcomers.

  • Evolution conveys change, growth and elevation. When seen from a biological perspective it conveys evolution of the species from having lower abilities to those having higher abilities. A diametrically different way of seeing evolution is to see it from the perspective of evolution of consciousness.

    In Biological evolution the change happens externally. But in the evolution of consciousness the change happens internally. Handling external changes is task of nature and handling internal changes is the task of spirit. Biologically evolution may be debatable but in terms consciousness evolution can be experienced. ‘Evolve’ is a book which helps us handle and make internal changes and thus facilitate the evolution in our consciousness. ‘Evolve’ is about growing lotuses in a desert. How can lotuses grow in a desert? A heart which is fearful of uncertainities, lacking confidence, negative in its approach, always conflicting and having no goal, is like a desert. Even a parched desert can grow lotuses if it rains continuously for days together.
    “This 2 minute wisdom of ‘Evolve’ is like a incessant shower of rainfall on our hearts. Thus facilitating our desert like hearts to grow lotuses.”
