The Bhagawatha Purana is the most famous and sacred text after the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. It describes the story of Krishna in its fullness and glory. The twenty-two incarnations of Vishnu, the lineage of the ancient rulers of India, discussions on the creation and dissolution of the world are among the many breathtaking narratives of this epic. Profound philosophical discussions on par with the Bhagawad Gita are found in the pages of this book. Ultimately this is the story of spiritual love, submission and supreme devotion. This sixteenth century epic, passed on by palm-leaf manuscripts, is published in its entirety for the first time.
