This is the second of the six “Sat-Sandarbhas”, the first being “Tattva-Sandarbha”. The Sat-Sandarbhas thoroughly establish the authority of Srimad Bhagavatam, the transcendental Original Form of Godhead, Sri Krishna, Bhakti, and the methods and stages of Bhakti. The Six Sandarbhas are: Tattva, Paramatma, Bhagavat, Krishna, Bhakti, and Priti It is proven beyond doubt that the Supreme Lord is always the absolute controller of all His potencies, and that there is no question of Him coming under their control, especially under the control of the external energy, known as maya. In Sri Bhagavata-sandarbha, Srila Jiva Gosvami has written conclusively about the ultimate end of devotional service. End note to the introduction by Purnaprajna Dasa: As would be expected, Kusakratha Prabhu has given us a wonderfully detailed and poetic translation of this great philosophical treatise. His untiring and undeviating devotion to the Lord are imbued throughout the entire work, and for this reason it has been a great pleasure for me to prepare it for publishing. Includes roman transliterated Sanskrit texts, word for word, and English translation. Translation by Kusakratha Dasa; editing by Purnaprajna Dasa.
