Author: Krishna-dwaipayana Vyasa, translation and purports by A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

Synopsis: Known as the Bhagavata Purana, this work is the crown jewel of Vyasadeva’s writings. While other Puranas touch on various material subjects, the Bhagavatam deals exclusively with devotion to Krishna, the highest duty for mankind. Presented in the form of a conversation between Shukadeva Goswami and Maharaja Parikshit, this book is essentially the encyclopedia of Vedic knowledge, something which can be read over and over again.
