An insight into the tree of Vedic literature in relation to Bhagavad Gita As It Is, Nectar of Devotion (Bhakti-rasamrita-sindhu), Srimad Bhagavatam and Caitanya Caritamrita.


A complete explanation of:


Vedas, Samhitas, Mantras, Brahmanas, Aranyakas, Shruti, Smriti, Nyaya, Vedangas, Agamas, Tantras, Upanishads, Shad-darshanas, Vedanta-sutra, Bhashyas, Puranas, Itihasas, Kavyas, and Pancaratras.


"In our Krishna consciousness movement we have therefore limited our study of Vedic literatures to Bhagavad-gita, Srimad Bhagavatam, Sri Caitanya Caritamrita and Bhakti-rasamrita-sindhu. These four works are sufficient for preaching purposes. They are adequate for the understanding of the philosophy and the spreading of missionary activities all over the world." - Sri Caitanya Caritamrita, Madhya-lila 22.118


This lecture series was recorded in Los Angeles, 1993.
