The Telugu version of ‘Srimad Bhagavatham', the great epic considered an elixir for redressal of worldly grievances, is now available in the stalls at International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON).

The volume was formally released on Friday by TTD Executive Officer L.V. Subrahmanyam.

According to mythology, Bhagavatha was written by sage Vyasa upon instructions from his mentor, Narada Muni. As a befitting tribute to the sage-composer, the release was slated for Friday, when Vyasa Purnima (the appearance day of Vyasa), was celebrated.

The treasure trove of spiritual knowledge was intended to provide respite to the society and help people overcome despair arising out of materialistic pleasures.

“While our founder, Srila Prabhupada, wrote the English commentary with word-by-word meaning for theBhagavatha for the benefit of the global readers, the same is available now in Telugu,” said Revati Ramandas, president of ISKCON's Tirupati unit.

Mr. Subrahmanyam said the Telugu volume should be read by one and all, irrespective of religious affiliations and spiritual inclinations, as it would open the door to eternal bliss.

Hare Krishna Satapathy, Vice-Chancellor of Rashtriya Sanskrit Vidyapeetha, former Chairman of Chittoor Zilla Parishat P. Siddarami Reddy, advocate I. Guruswamy, members of ISKCON order Bhimadas Prabhu (USA), Vaishnavanghrisevak Das (Mumbai), Satya Gopinath Das (Anantapur), Vedanta Chaitanya Das (Hyderabad), and vice-president of ISKCON-Tirupati Rupeshwara Chaitanya Das, took part.
