About the Author

Bhagavad Gita er 4, 1916, at Bangalore and educated in that city, The Author Smt. Kamala Subramaniam had the privilege of studying under the distinguished Professor B.M. Srikantiah, Professor and Head of the English Department, Central College, Bangalore, and top litterateur in modern Kannada. She developed early in life an avid taste for English literature and particularly Love for Shakespeare's plays.

In 1937, she married Dr. V.S. Subramaniam, the renowned E.N.T. Surgeon of Madras.

In spite of being pre-occupied with the affairs of her family, she wrote a series of "Imaginary Conversations" on the Model of Landor's for the Triveni under the pen-name of "Ketaki."

Her love of literature, nursed over the years, expressed itself in her developing a fascination for the Epics and Puranas of India.

Smt. Kamala Subramaniam's condensation of the Maliabharata - a Bhavan's publication -has Won wide acclaim.

She now makes available to the English -knowing public a faithful condensation of the Bhagavata Purana, retaining by far all the piety and pathos of the original.

This is the second in the author's triad, the third one being the condensations of Valmiki's Ramayana, also published by the Bhavan.

If the setting of Bhagavad Gita is a battlefield where opposing armies are arrayed against each other, the setting of the Bhagavata Purana is no less arresting and awe-inspiring.

A great and virtuous king Parikshit, by a quirk of fate, is doomed to die of snakebite in seven clays. As the Bhagavatam opens, we ,see him listening with Faith and devotion to the recitation of the Purana, seeking the ultimate that any human being can aspire for, namely, freedom or liberation, after attaining which one knows no fear and is all peace.

Indeed the Serpent king, Takshaka, dramatically arrives at the appointed hour and deals death to the king's body, which is reduced to ashes by the fiery venom. But by that time, death had lost all its sting for the king.

Did not Parikshit tell Suka at the conclusion of the Bhagavata Purana recital : "Lord, I fear neither Takshaka nor death, now that I have entered the fearless and blissful State of Brahman?"

This then is the glory of Bhagavatam, acclaimed as the essence of all Vedic wisdom, namely, its power to make one remain poised, even at the point of death.

And if India's Spiritual Tradition is kept alive today it is largely because of the Bhagavatam and its systematic exposition throughout the Country - with the result that its teachings have permeated the subconscious of the masses.

The Bhagavatam has been aptly described as the spiritual Butter churned out of the ocean of the Veda Milk for the benefit of those "who are pure in heart, free from malice and envy, and are keen to hear it."

All mankind is destined to hear the message of the Bhagavatam, but the message will come loud and clear only when one really yearns for it, when "Shraddha" enters the soul as it did in the case of Nachiketas.

Bhagavatam, being the culmination of Jnana and Bhakti, is dear alike to the Advaitin, Vishishtadvaitin and the Dvaitin. Its appeal is to the head as well as to the heart.

The very fact that it is a Purana proclaims aloud the truth that it is not an esoteric text meant for a select few but a Sacred Scripture meant to bring within the REACH of all, including householders, the Peace that passeth understanding.

Dry Philosophy seldom appeals to the human mind. But in the Bhagavatam even the most abstruse philosophic truths are put across by Means of stories and legends. This is the secret of its popularity among all Classes of people. General Editor : S. Ramakrishnan
