“First and always, I pay my humble obeisances at the lotus feet of my Spiritual Master, Srila Prabhupada, who protects the quality of my spiritual life and guides me at every step, and to whom I am forever indebted. I deliberated for years after my Guru’s departure on the best way I could serve him in spreading Krishna consciousness. In my search for help in serving him correctly, I encountered interferences when I tried to spread the exact Vedic knowledge and its etiquette. In such a situation, I bowed, and humbly prayed to my Spiritual Master for instruction. Hence, I embarked on my mission to serve my Guru to the best of my ability. The work presented here demonstrates my capability to properly translate Vedic scriptures into English. My junior years of schooling were dedicated to this academic study. Thus, I have been inspired by my Guru Maharaja to undertake the gargantuan task of translating Srimad Bhagavatam into English, with purports. It is only because of my unflinching faith in my Divine Master and uncompromising traditional Vaishnava habits, which I have never deviated from at any time, that I will be able to accomplish this historic Vedic translation. In fact, as per the law of Vedic civilization, this work can only be done by one born in the traditional brahmana lineage, by one who is trained from birth to know his Spiritual Master’s eternal will. This work is my mission for life. This is the main reason for calling this section “My Mission.” A section like it will appear in every volume of Srimad Bhagavatam, deliberating on a particular topic.”
