Description

The essence of revelation can be summarised in one word: om, which means, “Yes! What you are searching for does exist!”
Who am I? Who is the Lord? What is our relationship? What is true fulfilment? The fundamental need of every soul is to find the answers to these questions.
Revealed Truth explains how the ancient seers of the Vedic culture realised these truths and preserved their practices in writing. Śrīmad Bhāgavatam is the culmination of such scriptures. Its author, Śrīla Vyāsadev, has compared the Vedas to a wish-fulfilling tree, and Śrīmad Bhāgavatam to the tree’s fruit. It was spoken by Śrīla Śukadev Goswāmī, who is likened to a parrot that has pecked and released the fruit’s nectar.
Śrīmad Bhāgavatam’s beauty has been shown to the world in unprecedented depth by Śrī Chaitanya Mahāprabhu. He taught that every soul is by nature a servant of the Lord, devotion to the Lord is the soul’s natural calling, and love for the Lord is the soul’s true fulfilment. By reading Revealed Truth one will develop a comprehensive understanding of Śrī Chaitanya Mahāprabhu’s teachings and be able to put the essence of revealed truth into practice.
The author, Swāmī B. S. Govinda, illuminates Śrī Chaitanya Mahāprabhu’s paramount ideal of divine love with heart-touching clarity and sweetness. Drawing upon the teachings of the Āchāryas in Śrī Chaitanya Mahāprabhu’s succession, as well as his own experience and realisation, Swāmī B. S. Govinda captivates readers with wisdom and joy that will ensure their spiritual journey is crowned with success.
