This is Srila Sridhar Maharaj’s first English publication. Prefaced by an article by Srila Bhakti Vedanta Swami Maharaj. Arranged according to the principles of sambandha (.relationship)., abhidheya (.means)., and prayojan (.goal)., this book describes the origin of the soul and subjective evolution. It includes a synopsis of the Brihad Bhagavatamrtaand the six philosophies of India, and a Gaudiya–Vaishnav analysis of Christianity, as well as contemporary issues from drug problems to World War III. The dramatic conclusion summarises the conversation between Ramananda Ray and Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu—the essence of Vaishnav theology.
