Title: Uddhava Gita

ISBN: 0-912776-60-9

Author: Krishna-dwaipayana Vyasa, commentaries and purports by Vishvanatha Chakravarti Thakura

and Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura, translated by Bhumipati Dasa

Versions: Print, E-Book

Synopsis: Similar to the Bhagavad-gita, this book focuses on the instructions given by Lord Krishna to His friend Uddhava, just prior to the Lord’s returning to the spiritual world. Part of the Shrimad Bhagavatam, the teachings in this book are very similar to those found in the Bhagavad-gita, yet at the same time it delves into other topics not found in any other Vedic literature. Spoken directly by God, this book is a great read.
