One of India's most popular scriptures, true to the spirit and easy to read.
- 320 pages, Indian paperback
The Srimad Bhagavatam is one of the most popular scriptures in India, and one of the most important, next to the Upanishads and Bhagavad Gita.
This version focuses primarily on the teachings of Krishna, and the generally more interesting portions of the book. The translation's aim is to be true to the spirit of the original Sanskrit and be easily readable.
Those who wear shoes
to protect their feet are not hurt
by the thorns that lie upon the road.
Likewise, those who have learned
to be contented under all conditions
are never hurt by the thorns that lie
upon the path of life.

Beautiful book! It helped me to more greatly understand the Hindu philosophy. I also have a better understanding of reincarnation now that I've read the book.
