A long letter in English written in 1871 to the editors of Progress newspaper. In "The Attibaris of Orissa" The Ṭhākura exposes some of the activities of a popular sect of so-called Vaiṣṇavas in Orissa.
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.
In Gītāra Janma Rahasya (The Secret of the Lord’s Appearance According to the Gītā), Ṭhākura Bhaktivinoda explains the transcendental position of Śrī Kṛṣṇa based on the Fourth Chapter of the Bhagavad-gītā.
Śrī Gaṅgā-devīr-māhātmya Viṣaye Arthavāda (Topics in Praise of Śrī Gaṅgā Devī) was first published in Sajjana Toṣaṇi, Vol 10, Issue 4 in 1899. Herein, Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura writes about the purity of the Gaṅgā as well as the offences one may commit in bathing in her waters.
