Sri Narada-pancaratram or Jnana-mrtasara is one of the oldest specimen of Vaisnava literature in Sanskrit. It deals with Sri Krsna, Sri Gopala and Sri Radha cult. The leading theme is devotion and love towards Sri Krsna who is verily the God, but not of the same standard as is preached in the Bhagavadgita. It tries to solve the problem of life and death, pleasure and pain, this world and the next and holds out the idea of Santa and Dasya.
The servitude of Hari through devotion is the highest Mukti or absolution according to his work. Sri Krsna is recognized as the full Avatara of the Supreme in all his sixteen kalas, the greatest Avatara of all.
The present edition of Narada- Pancaratram with English Translation and Sanskrit text is very benefitial for the scholars of Sanskrit literature and the devotee of Vaisnava cult in general.
