It is a most useful publication for the student of Sanskrit, the text in both Devanagari and Roman type is clear and accurate, the word-for-word translation is helpful to the beginner. The translation approaches the text from the angle of Chaitanya bhakti. Thus, while I cannot agree that this edition is “definitive”, it is a very useful one, and as Professor Dimock says in his Preface, it gives us insight into the doctrines of the Gaudiya Vaishnava school.

The above judgment is made as a scholar. As a human being, I cannot but applaud the fact that your movement is bringing faith and joy back into the lives of many unhappy young people who have not been able to find those virtues in the religion and culture in which they were raised, and I wish you success in the good work you are doing.
