Srimad Bhagavatam Canto 1-9 + Krishna Book
Srimad-Bhagavatam, an epic philosophical and literary classic, holds a prominent position in India’s voluminous written wisdom. This ancient text touches upon all fields of human knowledge. 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.
“This Srimad Bhagavatam is as brilliant as the sun, and it has arisen just after the departure of Lord Krishna to His own abode, accompanied by religion, knowledge, etc. Persons who have lost their vision due to the dense darkness of ignorance in the Age of Kali shall get light from this Srimad Bhagavatam.” (Srimad-Bhagavatam 1.3.43)
Srila Prabhupada called it the encyclopedia of spiritual life, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu called it the amala (spotless) purana. The Srimad Bhagavatam (Bhagavata Purana) is the essential and complete guide to Krishna Consciousness. 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. This edition is a 2004 reprint of the 1972 Hamsaduta pocket edition, it contains Cantos 1 to 9, and Krishna book in three volumes, a total of 30 small hardbound books.
The text in this edition is perfectly clear and 100% readable. The compact size makes this edition of Prabhupada’s Srimad Bhagavatam so easy to read. These books are so much easier to slip into a bag to take with you to read during the day.
