Our aim with this publication, Paravidyā-mālā, is to assist Śrīla Prabhupāda in a small way, by elaborating on varied aspects of his wonderful teachings.

In this first volume, we include a summary of the Bhagavad-gītā, “The Eighteen Yogas of the Bhagavad-gītā”, originally written for publication in China.

The rest of the book contains transcriptions of various devotional seminars I have given over the span of many decades. The second part of the book is a collection of seminars which elaborate on Śrīla Prabhupāda’s Nectar of Devotion and the Caitanyacaritāmṛta, delving into the categories of expansions and incarnations of the Supreme Lord, drawing directly from Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇava sources such as the Bṛhad-bhāgavatāmṛta of Śrīla Sanātana Gosvāmī and the Laghubhāgavatāmṛta of Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī.

The third part consists of a more recent seminar on the wonderful character of Arjuna while the fourth part is a collection of inspiring expositions on studying Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam.
