This book was originally authored and published when Satyanarayana Dasa Babaji was a member of ISKCON (International Society of Kṛṣṇa Consciousness) as a Centennial offering for Śrīla Prabhupāda, the Founder-Ācārya of ISKCON.
It is a small and easy-to-ready book in glorification of Śrīmad Bhāgavata based on the translation of six chapters of the Padma Purāṇa, Uttara-khaṇḍa. It narrates the allegorical story of Bhakti personified, who becomes afflicted by the age of Kali and then rejuvenated by sage Nārada Muni. It also contains other stories that illustrate the auspiciousness of hearing the Bhāgavata in the age of Kali.
This new edition contains modifications where clarity was needed, along with style and formatting changes that fit the current Jīva Style Guide. Unlike its original counterpart, the revised version comes in hard cover, which adds well to its look and feel and hopefully makes it more enjoyable to the readers.
Krishna prema is like blazing fire. It burns all one’s material attachments. Therefore, materialists are very scared of it. But this fire is most blissful. Only those who have trust (sraddha) dare to jump into it. They never want to come out of it and out of compassion invite others to join them.
