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.
