Pocket size Bhagavad-gita Rasika Ranjan commentary by Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura is the need of the sincere devotee of Lord Sri Krishna. The most compassionate Bhagavan Sri Krishna, who words always hold true spoke Bhagavad-gita, which is an investigation into the essential import of all the Vedas, to His dear friend, Arjuna, to deliver the entire world. These instructions of the Gita are the only means to deliver the world.
Srila Bhaktvinoda Thakura had written as follows on this book:
Unfortunately, the commentaries and Bengali translations of Srimad Bhagavad-gita that have been published to date are mostly composed by monists. Commentaries or translations based on pure devotional service are rarely published.
The commentaries of Sankaracharya and Anandagiri are full of monistic conclusions.
Sridhara Swami’s commentary is not based on the philosophy of monism, but it has a scent of the sectarian philosophy of suddhadvaita-vada.
Sri Madhusudana Sarasvati’s commentary is full of statements nourishing devotional service, but the conclusion is not beneficial.
Sri Ramanuja Swami’s commentary is fully based on devotional service, but unless a commentary on Bhagavad-gita that is full of the teachings of Sri Gauranga Mahaprabhu’s acintya-bhedabheda philosophy is published in our country, the happiness of those who relish pure devotional service does not increase.
We have therefore carefully published the Bhagavad-gita with the Bengali translation called Rasika-ranjana according to the commentary written by Sri Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura. He was a follower of Sri Gauranga, a great teacher, and the crest jewel among all devotees.
Sri Baladeva Vidyabhusana also wrote a commentary on Bhagavad-gita based on the teachings of Sriman Mahaprabhu.
Although Baladeva’s commentary is philosophical, Cakravarti Mahasaya’s commentary is not only philosophical, but also full of the mellows of love of God. Particularly, Cakravarti Mahasaya’s commentary on Srimad Bhagavatam is particularly well known and respected. Cakravarti Mahasaya’s philosophy is simple and his Sanskrit language is sublime.
