His Holiness Bhanu Swami Maharaja was born in
Canada on the 26th December 1948 to the most
fortunate Japanese parents. He is one of the senior
disciples of His Divine Grace A.C Bhaktivedanta
Swami Srila Prabhupada, founder acarya of ISKCON,
the International Society for Krishna Consciousness.
He holds a BA Degree in Oriental fine arts history
from the University of British Colombia. He joined
the Hare Krishna movement in India in 1970. Initiated in 1971 by Srila
Prabhupada, he took sannyadsa vows in 1984. Bhanu Swami was
personally instructed in the art of Deity worship by Srila Prabhupada,
and within ISKCON he has become an authority on the topic. He is a
great inspiration for many devotees around the world and he preaches
Krishna consciousness in India, Japan, Malaysia, Australia and Russia.
By 1972, His Holiness Bhanu Swami Maharaja had already earned credit
from Srila Prabhupada for his exact Sanskrit pronunciation, expertise in
cooking and excellence in deity worship. He also began to translate Srila
Prabhupada’s books into Japanese.
A scholar in Sanskrit and Bengali, Bhanu Swami has translated more than
fifty significant works of the Gaudiya Vaisnava canon. Many of these
works are commentaries from primary members of the Gaudiya
Bhanu Swami is a quiet achiever and has studied a variety of disciplines
including martial arts, Reiki healing, Carnatic music (specifically veena).
He is a reputed astrologer.
Bhanu Swami’s depth of scholarship has enabled him to create
presentations on topics like karma, reincarnation, yoga and Srimad
Bhagavatam. He continues with this translation service to this day, giving
us the nectar from the Bengali and Sanskrit works of the previous
Vaisnava acaryas to enhance our understanding of the Gaudiya Vaisnava
philosophy. He is also a member of the Governing Body Commission
(GBC) of ISKCON.
Brhad vaisnava tosani was completed in Sakabda 1476. Sanatana Gosvami wrote this elaborate commentary on the Tenth Canto to explain in details
what Sridhara Svami covered briefly, and to give devotional meaning where Sridhara Svami gave brahmavada explainations. Sanatana's commentary
shows great learning and deep devotion. It conveys the sweetness that Caitanya Mahaprabhu presented to the world.
Some of the commentary are same as Jiva Gosvami's Laghu vaisnava tosani since Jiva Gosvami bases his commentary on Sanatana Gosvami. Henceforth those commetary
will be marked as "same".
