After compiling the Vedas, Srila Vyasadeva was inspired to present their profound essence in the form of Srimad-Bhagavatam. Known as «the ripened fruit of the tree of Vedic literature», Srimad-Bhagavatam is the most complete and authoritative exposition of Vedic knowledge, covering everything from the nature of the self to the origin of the universe.
The first verse of Srimad-Bhagavatam makes clear that because the book is intended for people serious about spiritual progress, it will not deal with sectarian religious ideas, philosophical conjecture, or worldly concerns. The second text promises that anyone who reads the book systematically will achieve the spiritual success meant for all human beings.
Srila Prabhupada called it the encyclopedia of spiritual life, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu called it the amala (spotless) purana. The Srimad Bhagavatam (Bhagavata Purana) is the essential and complete guide to Krishna Consciousness. It is a journey of 18,000 verses from the Lord's lotus feet in the first canto to His smiling face in the tenth. This set contains the complete 12 Cantos in 18 volumes.
