This Website is offering the avove original 30 Vol. Set of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (PDF) that includes only the works that were personally translated and commented upon by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda. This set ends with Tenth Canto, 13th chapter, which describes the pastime of Lord Brahmā, the Lord of the Universe, stealing Kṛṣṇa’s cowherd boyfriends and calves from the pasturing grounds of Vṛndāvana. Śrīla Prabhupāda was softly dictating this famous story in his final days in his room in Vṛndavāna, India. After Śrīla Prabhupāda’s departure from this world, the rest of Tenth Canto, and also the 11th and 12th cantos, were translated by some of his disciples, and are available from other sources.

Once it was possible to find copies of original editions of Śrīla Prabhupāda’s Śrīmad-Bhāgavatams in second-hand book stores and on internet book websites but now the original editions of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam have become very difficult to find anywhere. So there is an urgent need to preserve these valuable books for future generations.

We see the BBT making thousands of unauthorized changes to so many of Śrīla Prabhupāda’s books in this way completely destroying the authority of the books. Śrīla Prabhupāda’s Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam has remained relatively free from such changes for many years but now, with the release of the BBT Folio 2012 edition, we see the BBT have now produced a new and “updated” version of Śrīla Prabhupāda’s Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam complete with thousands of unauthorized changes and what the BBT consider are ‘improvements…’ Now they are even changing Prabhupāda’s words in the Folio to what they think Prabhupāda should have said

The BBT are determined to change Prabhupāda’s books. They have not heard the outcry from the devotees about their unauthorized changes to Bhagavad-gītā, Kṛṣṇa Book and Śrī Caitanya-caritāmṛta. They have not leaned from their mistakes, on the contrary according to one of the main BBT editors in recent years they have given us new, “improved”, revised editions of Śrīla Prabhupāda’s Nectar of Instruction, Beyond Birth and Death and Perfection of Yoga and now they also have a new version of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam. We do not know if they have actually printed this new unauthorized edition of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam but it is included in the 2012 release of the Folio Infobase.

It is essential that we at least preserve the original teachings of Śrīla Prabhupāda for future generations so as followers of Śrīla Prabhupāda we all have to take this responsibility very seriously. At least we can not fail in handing on in tact and unchanged the original teachings of Śrīla Prabhupāda to future generations. That is the least we can do for Śrīla Prabhupāda.

You will find links to PDF files (above) that contain actual scans of original editions of Śrīla Prabhupāda’s Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam. Some covers are missing and they will be added when they are available, but otherwise you will find the complete book including all the original color plates. These files are about 100 megabytes each because they contain actual scans of the original book pages. So it is an exact electronic copy of the original volumes of Śrīla Prabhupāda’s Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam.

So please download these PDF files from this website so you have the original first-edition of Śrīla Prabhupāda’s Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, at least in electronic format.

“This Bhāgavata Purāņa is as brilliant as the sun, and it has arisen just after the departure of Lord Kṛṣṇa to His own abode, accompanied by religion, knowledge, etc. Persons who have lost their vision due to the dense darkness of ignorance in the age of Kali shall get light from this Purāṇa.” Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 1.3.43

“Completely rejecting all religious activities which are materially motivated, this Bhāgavata Purāṇa propounds the highest truth, which is understandable by those devotees who are pure in heart. The highest truth is reality distinguished from illusion for the welfare of all. Such truth uproots the threefold miseries. This beautiful Bhāgavatam, compiled by the great sage Śrī Vyāsadeva, is sufficient in itself for God realization. As soon as one attentively and submissively hears the message of Bhāgavatam, he becomes attached to the Supreme Lord.” Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 1.1.2
