GITA SUBODHINI REVIEWS
The entire Subodhini series is a bright star in the sky of shastra study guides. Beaming with care and thoughtfulness, the Gita Subodhini truly benefits all devotees – whether junior or senior. I congratulate the author for his experience in fulfilling everyone’s spiritual needs.
If you are desirous of learning the Bhagavad Gita or making a systematic study of this great spiritual literature or if you are a teacher of the Gita, then Gita Subodhini is all you need, to fulfil your desire completely and perfectly.
The challenge for teachers in today’s distracting world is to catch and retain students’ attention. Students, even if they can avoid distractions, still can easily be overawed by the vastness and seeming complexity of shastra. In such a setting, the Subodhini series comes to the aid of shastra teachers and shastra students by presenting the foremost texts of our tradition accessibly and appealingly. As our movement strives to create more resources for promoting education, the Subodhini series prepared by Gauranga Darshan Prabhu counts among the most valuable resources available for devotees in their efforts to savor and share the treasure of shastra that Srila Prabhupada has gifted us.
The Subodhini series by Gauranga Darshan Prabhu makes the Bhagavad Gita, Srimad Bhagavatam and Caitanya Caritamrita so accessible to those that want to dive deep into these scriptures. Breaking everything into small sections makes it so much easier to taste spoonfuls of nectar from the ocean of HDG A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada’s purport presentations.
