Some articles by Shyamdas from USA
Acharyashri MahaPrabhuji considered the Vedas, Brahma Sutras, Shrimada Bhagvatam and Shrimada Bhagvad Geeta as authoritative treaties, as dictated by God. He developed his philosophy based on these "praman shastras", drawing from them his wonderful philosophy of pure monotheism - Shuddhadvita. This expanded on the theories of his guruji, Shri Vishnuswami.
Shri MahaPrabhu Vallabhacharyaji was a prolific writer and wrote many commentaries, treaties and original works in sanskrit. His commentary on the Brahma-Sutra - Anubhashya, and commentary on Shrimad Bhagvatam - Subodhini, are perhaps the most detailed commentaries there are on the subject. To explain his Shuddhavaita philosophy, he wrote a number of treaties and stotras to teach his disciples the ways of Pushti Marg.
Of the numerous stotras that he wrote, sixteen have been used as the most important teaching tools in Pushti Marg. Devote members recite these everyday and espouse to follow the advise written there-in. Collectively, these are referred to as the " Shodash Grantha ".
Here you will find a translation of a few of the sixteen. Time permitting, I will add more, so please do visit this page again, soon.
