Srimad-Bhagavatam is the book form of Lord Sri Krsna. Srila Sanatana Gosvami describes in his Krsna-lila-stava that each syllable of the Bhagavatam rains pure love of God on the reader. Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu has declared that Srimad-Bhagavatam is the spotless Purana and He personally preached the transcendental truths (tattvas) mentioned in it (saba sikhaila prabhu bhagavata-siddhanta). He taught Rupa Gosvami and Sanatana Gosvami the ultimate truths of Lord Krsna, devotional service, devotional mellows, and so on.

Krsna consciousness means understanding the truths of Krsna (krsna-tattva), devotional service (bhakti-tattva), love of Godhead (prema-tattva), emotional ecstasy (bhava-tattva), transcendental mellows (rasa-tattva) and the Lord’s pastimes (lila-tattva).
– Sri Caitanya-caritamrta Madhya 25.265
The serious practitioner of bhakti endeavors to understand these tattvas explained in the Bhagavatam and as Bhagavatam itself says, such bhagavad-bhakti-yoga gives one the realization of the truths of the Supreme Lord, His name, form, paraphernalia and pastimes (bhagavat-tattva-vijnanam).
Our earlier publication Bhagavata Ratnamala presented the most vital verses of the Bhagavatam canto-wise. Such sequential presentation helps the readers to locate the jewel-like verses and pause in their chronological study of the Bhagavatam, to meditate on them and memorize them by regular recitation.
