By Khusboo Basan
Svalikhita Jivani, the autobiography of Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura published by the Bhaktivedanta Research Center (BRC) in its original Bengali language was released at ISKCON Leadership Sanga by HH Jayapataka Swami Maharaj and HH Guruprasad Swami Maharaj facilitated by HG Gauranga Prabhu and HG Braj Vilas Prabhu on 15th Feb 2023 as part of the ISKCON Leadership Sanga event in Sridham Mayapur. The event was telecast live on Mayapur TV.
Originally, Srila Bhaktivinod Thakur’s autobiography was written by him in the form of a letter to his son Lalita Prasad in 1896 and it was posthumously printed by the latter in 1916. However, after the first print, the book went out of circulation and remained almost beyond access over the course of the next hundred years.
