O.B.L. Kapoor's compliments to Sri Ananta Das Babaji - On writing and publishing literature

Madhava - Mon, 18 Apr 2005 21:07:58 +0530
I found the following letter printed in an appendix to Baba's Rasa-darshan, a reference to Baba's bRhad-bhAgavatAmRter marmAnuvAda, a summary study of Sanatan Goswami's Brihad-bhagavatamrita in Bengali.

I am glad to find that Sri Ananta Das Babaji Maharaja has already demonstrated his ability and determination to walk in the footsteps of his Gurudev, Sri Kunja Bihari Das Babaji Maharaj, the great saint, who had dedicated his life to the mass dissemination of the doctrine of Gaudiya Vaishnavism by presenting in simple Bengali language the highest truths contained in the illustrious works of the six Vrindavan Goswamins in Sanskrit, which are not easily accessible to the common reader.

His compilation of Brihad-Bhagavatamrita in Bengali is a laudable step in this direction. The work is written in a simple and elegant style and is easily comprehensible. The marginal notes given by the learned author in brackets are particularly enlightening and useful and add greatly to the importance of the work for the ordinary reader.

The readers will look forward to the early publication of the second part of the work and other similar treatises from the pen of the author, who remarkably combines within himself the rare gifts of superior learning and devotional insight in the problems of philosophy and Rasa-shastra.
