About the author

Mahaprabhu Shri Vallabhacharya

Born in a village, founded by Adi Shankracharya, as the son of very devout parents, the late T.K. Viswanatha Iter and Ranganayaki Ammal, Ramanan was initiated into the study of the Vedas, the Upanishads, Puranas, the Gita, Sanskrit treatises and the Sacred Chantings from the age of 5. His initiation into the path of Bhakti was blessed by his Acharya and Guru, Shri Ubhaya Vedanta Srirangam Sampath Kumara Swami, who is 77 now and is a symbol of our Lord's love and compassion. He is honoured and loved by everyone, as a noble Saint of Shri Ramanuja Sampradaya. Ramanan sys "If ever there is a faint and feeble remembrance of our Lord, in my mind, it is entirely due to the Grace of my Guru and his prayers to our Lord Shri Laxmi Narayana". Arising out of a chance meeting with one off the greatest saints of our times, Shri Shyam Manohar Goswamijee, a direct descendant of Shri Mahaprabhu Vallabhacharya, becoming the recepient of His love, Grace and Compassion, Ramanan was inspired to attempt writing this translation into English of the monumental commentary of Shri Subodhini, by Mahaprabhu Shri Vallabhacharya, which in the words of Srimad Andavan of Srirangam, a noble and most loving Saint of the Ramanuja Sampradaya "cannot be fully and truly translated, into any other language, as Shri Vallabhacharya had the highest love for Lord Krishna". Hence, at best, this translation, in the words of Ramanan is a humble attempt to becoming deserving to get the Grace off our Lord Shri Krishna, through the Blessings and Grace of my Gurudeva Shri Ubhaya Vedanta Srirangam Sampath Kumara Swamin, Shri Shyam Manohara Goswamijee, Srimad Andavan of Srirangam and all Devotees and Bhaktas of our Lord.
