Summary

A vivid dramatization of Srimad Bhagavatam’s third canto. This ancient teaching is widely accepted as India’s most influential text. It explains the science of yoga and mysticism, culminating in knowledge of the supreme absolute and one’s eternal identity in relationship to that truth. It was composed 5,000 years ago in Sanskrit by the great sage Vyasadeva and has since been translated many times, but this is the first complete retelling. 

The series Brilliant as the Sun aims to make this sublime work accessible to any listener by presenting it in the style of a modern novel. Adhering closely to the original text, it brings out the deep meaning of Srimad Bhagavatam and helps the listener easily follow its flow. 

In this fourth volume, we hear about the appearance of Vishnu’s stupendous boar incarnation Lord Varaha, who rescues the earth from the demon Hiranyaksha. We also meet the great sage Kardama, who marries Devahuti, daughter of the earth’s emperor Manu. She gives birth to Lord Kapila, the divine incarnation who descended to teach the ancient science of sankhya yoga. 

Filled with enlightening wisdom and stimulating stories, Two Avatars presents the ancient teachings of the epic Srimad Bhagavatam in a highly enjoyable way that will appeal to anyone seeking real peace and lasting happiness.

potentially beautiful text sullied by ignorance

Bhakti is cultivated in part by listening to the pure devotee speak of Lord Krishna. It is a shame the authors of this text determined to demonstrate such ignorance as to assert that the intellect of women is inferior. I've read the arguments given by the authors' teacher and his disciples who defend this error, and I have no interest in engaging - to do so seems an abuse and severe misdirection of the material intellect. Suffice to say that having encountered this egocentric ignorance in the midst of what potentially is an otherwise rather inspired expression of love for the Lord, I felt brought down - psychically injured. As a result, unfortunately, the overall impression of the authors' work is thereby significantly less integrous. Mercifully, we have other teachers who are purely devoted to cultivating pure love for the Lord.
