Śrīla A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda commented as follows:
“Śrī Krishna Vijaya is a book of poems considered to be the first poetry book written in Bengal. Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura states that this book was begun in the year 1395 Śakābda (A.D. 1473). After seven years, it was completed (in 1402 Śakābda). This book was written in plain language, and even half-educated Bengalis and women could read it very clearly. Even ordinary men with little knowledge of the alphabet could read this book and understand it. Its language is not very ornamental, and sometimes the poetry is not very sweet to hear. Although according to the sonnet style each line should contain fourteen syllables, there are sometimes sixteen, twelve or thirteen syllables in his verse. Many words used in those days could be understood only by local inhabitants, yet this book is still so popular that no bookstore is complete without it. It is very valuable for those who are interested in advancing in Krishna consciousness. Śrī Guṇarāja Khān was one of the topmost Vaiṣṇavas, and he translated the Tenth and Eleventh Cantos of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam for the understanding of the common man. The book Śrī Krishna Vijaya was highly praised by Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu, and it is very valuable for all Vaiṣṇavas.”
Śrī Krishna Vijaya mainly deals with the subject matters described in the tenth and eleventh cantos of Śrīmad Bhāgavatam. The author also included some accounts from scriptures like Mahābhārata, Harivaṁsa, Brahmā-vaivarta Purāṇa and Bhaviṣya Purāṇa. Additionally, he revealed at the end of the book that he was actually instructed by Śrī Vyāsadeva in his dream to compose the book.
