Light of the Bhagavat Soft

Light of the Bhagavat Soft


The simplicity, beauty and intricacies in nature have captivated the minds and hearts of the greatest philosophers throughout time. Of all the classic works in the vast treasure house of India’s timeless Vedic literature, the Srimad-Bhagavatam is the most sublime and precious, for it embodies the essence of spiritual truth in beautifully poetic passages. Within the Tenth Canto of this incomparable masterpiece is a description of India’s rainy autumn season as an extended metaphor to illustrate various aspects of transcendental wisdom. For example, the cloudy skies of autumn nights, which obscure the moon and stars, represent the materialism of the present age, which hides true wisdom from the human mind. Through the ‘Light of the Bhagvata,’ Srila Prabhupada, one of the greatest philosophers of the twentieth century presents a clear and tangible illustration of the purpose and significance of nature and its origin.

Light of the Bhagavata captures the philosophy of India in a beautiful Chinese art and cultural presentation.
