Vaisnava-siddhanta-mala was originally composed in the Bengali language by the incarnation of auspiciousness upon this world, om visnupada Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura, who is to be included as an intimate member among the eternal associates of Sri Sacinandana Caitanya Mahaprabhu, the purifier of the age of Kali and the source of all incarnations. It is a compilation of selected verses from the Vedic literatures to provide the reader with a comprehensive analysis of all questions related with sambhanda, abhideya and prayojan tattva.
Based on Prameya-ratnāvalī of Śrī Baladeva Vidyābhūṣaṇa, Vaiṣṇava-siddhānta-mālā is a lively presentation of the nine prameyas, or truths. Clear and simple answers are given to many questions, such as, “What is the guru-paramaparā?” What is the śakti, or potency, of Bhagavān?” “If the pastimes of Śrī Kṛṣṇa are beyond matter, then how were they able to be seen at the end of Dvāpara-yuga?” “If Bhagavān is attained through the soul’s own self-manifested knowledge, then what is the necessity of studying the Vedic scriptures?” “Are all souls of one type or are there different gradations among them?” This book also contains an authoritative deliberation on the subject of the holy name and the different stages of chanting.
