Śrīla Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura

Śoka Śātana - Song Seven - 'gorācandera ajña peye'
Śrīla Saccidānanda Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura appeared in this world in 1836 and is considered to be the pioneer of the modern Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇava movement. The Thākura was a respected district magistrate and despite his busy schedule, he wrote volumes of books, articles and commentaries on Vaiṣṇava philosophy in Bengali, English and Sanskrit. He began a monthly journal named Sajjana Toṣaṇī and began the Nāma-haṭṭa (‘marketplace of the Holy Name’) programme of preaching in rural villages as well as in the metropolis of Kolkata. Bhaktivinoda also rediscovered the original birthplace of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu in Śrīdhāma Māyāpura. After accepting the renounced order of life in 1908, he left this world in 1914.

Articles by: Śrīla Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura

Āmnāya Daśa Mūla

This "Āmnāya Daśa Mūla" was the first of 4 short articles by Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura probably written in the 1890’s. These articles present the ten principle philosophical truths of Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇava siddhānta as found in the Vedic Upaniṣads, the Bhagavad-gīta, the Śrīmad Bhāgavatam and the Caitanya-caritāmṛta. In these essays, Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura gives his own translation to each verse and incorporates his commentary into it. The Ṭhākura goes into greater depth on this topic in other works such as Vaiṣṇava-siddhāṇta-mālā, Śrīman Mahāprabhura Śikṣa, Jaiva-dharma etc.
