Brahma-samhita, 5th Chapter (A Collection of Verses by Lord Brahma) – this book was discovered by Lord Chaitanya on His travels in South India, and it is Lord Brahma’s personal account of his birth, his penances and his realization of the spiritual world.

Edited and published by Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur with the original Sanskrit verses, Srila Jiva Goswami’s commentary and Thakur’s own Bengali introduction, Bengali prose translations and Bengali commentary called Prakasini (That Which Illuminates).

The Brahma-samhita is a very important scripture. Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu acquired the Fifth Chapter from the Adi-Kesava temple. In that chapter, the philosophical conclusion of acintya-bhedabheda-tattva (simultaneous oneness and difference) is presented. The chapter also presents methods of devotional service, the 18-syllable mantra, discourses on atma, Paramatma and karma, an explanation of kama-gayatri, kama-bija and the original Maha-Vishnu, and a specific description of the spiritual world, specifically Goloka Vrindavana.

Brahma-samhita also explains the demigod Ganesa, Garbhodakasayi Vishnu, the origin of the Gayatri mantra, the form of Govinda and His transcendental position and abode, the living entities, the highest goal, the goddess Durga, the meaning of austerity, 5 gross elements, love of Godhead, impersonal Brahman, the initiation of Lord Brahma, and the vision of prema enabling one to see the Lord.

The steps of devotional service are also explained. The mind, yoga-nidra, Laksmi Devi, devotional service in spontaneous ecstasy, Avataras beginning with Lord Ramacandra, Deities, the conditioned soul and his duties, the truth about Lord Vishnu, prayers, Vedic mantras, Lord Siva, Vedic literature, personalism and impersonalism, good behavior and many other subjects are also discussed. There is also a description of the Sun and the universal forms of the Lord. All these subjects are conclusively explained in a nutshell in this Brahma-samhita.

Natural Brotherhood (Bhaktivinoda Thakura):

BhaktiVinoda Thakura

"Gradually, when the offensive portions of the established religions are destroyed, there will be no more differences in the bhajana performed by the various Sampradayas nor any quarrel between them.

Then as brothers, the people of all castes and countries will spontaneously chant the Holy Names of the Supreme Lord together.

At that time, no one will hate anyone or consider others dogeaters; nor will anyone be overwhelmed by the pride of high birth.

The living entities will not forget the principle of natural brotherhood."
