Sri Brihad Bhagavatamrita
by Sanatana Goswami;
translated by Gopiparanadhana dasa
Brihad Bhagavatamrita is an exposition of the Bhagavata Purana, or Srimad Bhagavatam. All the knowledge and devotion laid out in the Bhagavatam is presented through an intricate story of two souls' journey toward spiritual perfection.
Narada Muni is on a quest to find the greatest recipient of Lord Krishna's mercy. And Gopa Kumara is on a quest to find Lord Krishna Himself.
The hero's quest for the extraordinary, a recurring theme in literature, reflects the urge of every heart at its noblest to discover the full possibilities of life. Anyone dissatisfied with the scant potential of mundane existence will rise in hope and excitement by reading of Narada Muni's journey to many planets in the universe to find the person who has received Krishna's (God's) greatest mercy.
"Analogous in some respects to Dante's Paradiso and more closely akin to John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress, it depicts not one but two parallel spiritual odysseys."
