Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura, the guru of His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, altered the course of religious history by reviving and forcefully propagating pure Krishna consciousness. His boldness in combating cheating religion earned him the appellation “lion guru” – yet his heart was soft with divine love for Krishna.
Based in Bengal and traveling throughout India in the early twentieth century, Bhaktisiddhanta laid the foundation for and was the inspiration and guiding force behind the later world wide spreading of the Hare Krishna movement.
The first volume features a biographical overview, plus a detailed analysis of the message, mission, and personality of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati.
The second volume details the preaching challenges that Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati faced, and also includes biographical sketches of several of his disciples and associates.
Volume 3 features an overview of Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati’s contributions, with selections from his lectures, writings, and colloquies, his astrological chart, and appendixes that include important details concerning Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati and the Gaudiya Matha, the organization he founded.
