Commentaries on 5th Canto Bhagavatam Cosmology
Commentaries on 5th Canto Bhagavatam Cosmology
Description
Back of the Book

The structure of the universe and calculations of planetary movements have been a matter of great interest to many ancient civilizations. The Vedic scriptures give ample evidence of this interest. The ancient calculations give similar results to modern methods. Whereas the Vedic description of the structure of the universe differs greatly from the modern conception. Some persons will thus reject the Vedic conception as imaginary. At least some explanation for the difference seems needed. This can only be done by first examining the available scriptures on this subject to obtain accurate knowledge of the conceptions. Since the Bhagavatam devotes many chapters to the structure of the universe, Bhagavatam should be studied. Thus the translation of the various commentaries on the chapters dealing with this subject is valuable. The present publication of these commentaries is a major step to help us properly understand the Vedic conception of the universe and based upon this, we can attempt to correlate it with modern conceptions, or let it stand on its own merits. That will be left for the reader to judge.

Testimonials
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA

Thank you so much for your wonderful store and wonderful service. A Naga Kanya stat arrived yesterday. The sculpture was very well packaged, and it is very beautiful. I am very very happy with the statue and very grateful to your company for providing access to such lovely works of art. Thank you for providing truly beautiful objects and for providing great service. All the very best to you,
Jigme, Canada
Thank you! You guys saved me... there were no other options online for the book I purchased today that I needed for a specific course. So thank you for carrying the book and the easy purchase process. I look forward to receiving the books.
