Shri Shikshashtaka - English

Shri Sanmodana-bhasya by Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura
Vivriti by Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Prabhupada

Issuing from the divine mouth of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu, the eight verses comprising this Śrī Śikṣāṣṭakam shine as the supremely radiant jewel of transcendental literature. They are the very essence of all the Vedas and a necklace for all Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇavas. This definitive edition, with the translation and commentary of Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja, features the soul-stirring commentaries of Śrīla Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura and Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura.

This Siksastaka is the very essence of all the Vedas. Although its Sanskrit language is quite simple, its import is so profound that even if one studies it throughout his life, his study will not come to an end. Each time one reads and deliberates on this subject, newer and newer meanings come to light. Therefore it remains eternally fresh. This Sri Siksastaka is a veritable necklace for all Gaudiya Vaisnavas.
