Out of his fathomless compassion, our most worshipful Śrīla Gurudeva, Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja, bestowed his blessings upon the world through his immaculate translations and commentaries of the life- transforming ancient Vedic literatures. His authority is that he has presented, without adulteration, the Vedic literature and those literatures in pursuance of it.

He is glorious because he represents the glorious guru- paramparā, the unbroken chain of disciplic succession of realized gurus coming from lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa Himself. He is accepted by Śrī Kṛṣṇa’s devotees throughout the world as a manifestation of Śrīla Kṛṣṇa-dvaipāyana Vyāsa, the lord’s literary incarnation. He represents and has manifested the sublime works of Śrīla Vyāsa, Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī, Śrīla Sanātana Gosvāmī, Śrīla Jīva Gosvāmī, Śrīla Naro ama dāsa Ṭhākura, Śrīla Viśvanātha cakravartī Ṭhākura, Śrīla Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura, Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda, Śrīla Bhaktivedānta Svāmī Prabhupāda, and all the pure ācāryas in our disciplic line. In addition, he has glori ed their message in his discourses and discussions, and those words have later also become books.

This volume contains Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārājas appeal, inspiration, guidance and blessings in regard to the most essential practices that nourish our bhakti, namely śravaṇa (hearing, or reading) and kīrtana (chanting, or preaching).
