I'm so much impressed with the style of author's presentation - first of all, authentic and engaging presentation.
I'd have read the introduction at least a couple of times. Having read several books on vedic philosophy, I think I can that rarely I find authentic and readable book like this one.
I first read the Yoga Sutras book by the same author that made me check out his other books also.

A beautiful translation that brings the essence and background of Krishna available to everyone. It's definitely something that readers should look into. The delivery was very fast. I received this product from Amazon the day after I ordered.

Professor Bryant is a brilliant scholar and this translation is just one of the concrete manifestations of his unique scholarly gifts. The introduction to the translated text is excellent and, as another reviewer says, worth the price of the book on its own. The Bhagavata Purana (especially the 10th book - translated here) embodies an immensely important tradition in Indic spirituality and should be read at least as much as some of the other classics of Indic traditions - like the Gita or the Upanishads (e.g.). Hopefully, through the ease of Professor Bryant's translation, the interesting features of the text itself and the translator's enlightening introduction, this edition of the text will allow the Bhagavata to become better known and better appreciated in the West.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great translation of Canto 10 of the Srimad Bhagavatam, the biography of Krishna. This book is usually reserved for the devotees of Krishna. Thus its translators are primary persons in the lineages of teachers from India.

Here however there is clear English with no religious overtones and no attempt to make converts and indoctrinate the reader. This is a relief in the history of the translations of this part of the Srimad Bhagavatam.

It sells at a very reasonable price, considering the work involved in translating from Sanskrit into English! If you buy this and like it, please look at my Bhagavad Gita English* which is also free from missionary overtones.
