Latest BTG Issue
In 1975, in response to a suggestion from an ISKCON life member, Srila Prabhupada requested the editors of this magazine to include an excerpt from Srimad-Bhagavatam in every issue. That policy has been followed ever since.
Prabhupada’s emphasis on the Bhagavatam was not arbitrary. Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, the incarnation of Krishna in whose line Prabhupada descends, cited the authority of the Bhagavatam as the basis for His teachings, selecting it from among the numerous books in the vast library of Vedic literature. It is the ideal book to guide one’s life, and in this issue Vraja Vihari Dasa addresses that point in his article “Srimad-Bhagavatam and the Search for Fulfillment.”
