Download Bhagavatam With 11 Sanskrit Commentaries

by Hari Parshad das

Posted August 16, 2012

For those devotees who are adept at reading Sanskrit and wish to relish Srimad Bhagavatam, I've managed to upload all twelve cantos of a book called Aneka Vyakhya Samalankrita Srimad Bhagavatam, which means 'Srimad Bhagavatam with Multiple Sanskrit Commentaries'.

This book contains all the verses of the Srimad Bhagavatam with commentaries in Sanskrit by 11 Acharyas of different Vaishnava Sampradayas, including Srila Sridhar Swami, Srila Jiva Goswami, Srila Vishvanatha Cakravarti Thakura, etc.

Devotees can download this book from the following Internet Archive locations:

Canto 01 (69 MB)
Canto 02 (40 MB)
Canto 03 (182 MB)
Canto 04 (83 MB)
Canto 05 (123 MB)
Canto 06 (93 MB)
Canto 07 (60 MB)
Canto 08 (51 MB)
Canto 09 (51 MB)
Canto 10 (724 MB)
Canto 11 (197 MB)
Canto 12 (33 MB)

Please pass on this message to all Bhagavatam enthusiasts.


Editor's Note: Uploading this set to the Internet Archive, as Hari Parshad prabhu has done, is a very nice service on his part. As he points out, of course, this is primarily useful for people who are adept in reading Sanskrit. The work is entirely in Devanagari characters and, because the files are scanned images, as opposed to actual Unicode text files, they can become surprisingly large. To download the entire set would fill up 1.7 gigabytes of space on a hard drive. The available formats most useful for Sanskritists are the PDF or the DjVu versions, depending on your preferred reader program. Unfortunately, the Internet Archive's "Full Text" option or the "PDF with text" options were machine-converted through an OCR program that does not interpret Devanagari characters, so they are unlikely to be useful.
