Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura altered the course of religious history by reviving and forcefully propagating pure Krsna consciousness. His boldness in combating cheating religion earned him the appellation “lion guru”—yet his heart was soft with divine love for Krsna. Based in Bengal and traveling throughout India in the early twentieth century, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura laid the foundation for, and was the inspiration and guiding force behind, the later worldwide spreading of the Hare Krsna movement.
The result of over twenty years of research, Sri Bhaktisiddhanta Vaibhava presents a wealth of newly translated material. Replete with anecdotes told by disciples who lived with him, this devotional, philosophical, cultural, and historical study gives intimate insights into the activities, teachings, and character of an empowered emissary of the Supreme Lord.
