Mahaprabhu Shri Vallabhacharya (Author)
Synopsis This volume presents, for the first time in English language, the translation, based on devotion to our Lord Shri Krishna (bhakti), bringing out, from the original Sanskrit text, the "bhavartha" (meaning of the innerspirit and underlying loving sentiments, with which, this treatise has been written), of the monumental commentary Shri Subodhini, on the Maha Bhagavata Purana, by Mahaprabhu Shri Vallabhacharya (C 1479 - c 1531). The tenth canto of Sri Bhagavatam is considered by all Vaishnavas as the most valuable and sacred canto, among the 12 cantos of this Purana - as this canto deals with the divine leelas of our Lord Shri Krishna, who is the Shri Purushothama--the supreme Lord of the universe. Shri Vallabhacharyas Sri Subodhini, is available only for the first, second, third, tenth and few chapters of the eleventh canto of Sri Bhagavatam.

In this volume, 7 chapters of the tenth canto are dealt with, with the original verse of Sri Bhagavatam, it's English meaning, the text of Sri Subodhini, in Sanskrit and it's English meaning.

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.
