The timeless wisdom of India is expressed in the Vedas, ancient Sanskrit texts. Originally preserved through oral tradition, the Vedas were first put into writing by Srila Vyasadeva.
After compiling the Vedas, Srila Vyasadeva was inspired to present their profound essence in the form of Srimad-Bhagavatam. Known as “the ripened fruit of the tree of Vedic literature, “Srimad-Bhagavatam is the most complete and authoritative exposition of Vedic knowledge – covering everything from the nature of the self to the origin of the universe.
Srila Prabhupada called it the encyclopedia of spiritual life, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu called it the amala (spotless) purana.

It is a journey of 18,000 verses from the Lord’s lotus feet in the first canto to His smiling face in the tenth.
