The saintly king Kulasekhara lived more than a millennium ago in India, yet his Mukunda-mala-stotra speaks to us today with the fresh voice of eternal truth. It is the voice of a realized soul beseeching the Lord — and us — with the utmost sincerity. Here is how he calls us to our salvation: O people, please hear of this treatment for the disease of birth and death? It is the name of Krsna. Recommended by expert yogis steeped in wisdom — such as Yajnavalkya — this boundless, eternal inner light is the best medicine, for when drunk it bestows complete and final liberation. Just drink it
The first part of the Mukunda-mala-stotra contains the commentary of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, recognized by scholars and spiritual leaders worldwide as the most distinguished teacher of Indian culture and philosophy of the modern age, the latter part contains commentary by Satsvarupa dasa Goswami, one of Srila Prabhupada’s senior disciples and the author of more than two dozen books on devotional life.
