Fallen! Fallen! Still fallen am I! Who else accept Sri Gaur-Hari’s Mercy-embodiment Sri Nityananda’s other-self Sri Gurudev His divine Grace Srimad Bhakti Villas Tirtha Goswami Maharj who out of his bounteous mercy, looked with favourable eyes at me—the vilest creatures.
While, one day I was seated in front of the Icon of our Vishnupad Sri Srimad Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Goswami Thakur, the illustrious Founder-President of Sri Chaitanya Math and Sri Gaudiya Maths—who is the mainstay of spiritual guide of millions of souls, a ight flashed in my mind that I should look to Srimad Bhagavati Gita. The Food that nourished me was his grace.
Neither any good quality nor any literacy have I. It is like the Ganges water which flows from the lotus Feet of the Lord and offered again to Him alone; so too let it be offered at the lotus palms of my Divine Master.
Prof B.R. Baliga, Retd. English Professer of Madras Presidency College who was a recipient of the Grace of my Divine Master was always a lucky person to put his able service in looking after the correction of the language as well as going after the press printings,
By the Grace of the Supreme Lord, this book has been well received. Some of the universities of India as well as many Institute of U.S.A. recognized it as a consulting and reference book for thesis work. Hundreds of appreciative letters come from the Indian Philosophers as well as from abroad. One appreciation letter is reproduced here:
“The author evidently made a careful study of most of the important teachings of Visvanath Chakravorty and Baladeva Vidyabhushana who have interpreted the Gita from a Chaitanyite’s point of view. It would be well if the ideas contained in the book could be widely circulated and read, So much of the present unrest and trouble in the world is due to avoidance of godliness and spiritual things and worrying over thing that do not matter. The book will be liked by those who believe that Bhakti or devotion to Lord Krishna is the sole remedy for the ills of mundane life.”-Dr. Sudhindra Chandra chakraborty, M.A., D.Litt, Darshanacharya, Bhagavataratna, Reader in Philosophy, Visvabharati University Santiniketan and also the author of ‘Philosophical Foundation of Bengal Vaishnavism.’
The 2nd Edition was brought out with some revision of the original. Prof. R.N. Sampath, of Presidency college of Madras was kind enough in looking after the corrections as well as going after the Press Printings. And ‘Sri Gopi’ happily gave the design of the cover. They are naturally be rewarded for their service by the Lord Himself.
