The monumental edition of the Bhagavata Purana by the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust is a major contribution to Indian studies. It is one of those rare works which are truly useful to both the scholar and the layman. The edition contains the Sanskrit text, both in Devanagari and transliteration, a word-for-word translation, connected translation in contemporary English, and an extensive commentary for each verse. It can thus be used profitably by students of widely differing degrees of familiarity of Sanskrit and Indian culture. A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada’s commentary represents a consistent religious interpretation of the work based on thorough familiarity with Hindu tradition. The books are beautifully produced, yet modestly priced. They should play a significant role in promoting serious study of Indian culture and religion in the English-speaking world.
