Shrila Sac-cid-ananda Bhaktivinoda Thakura published the book Vaishnava-Siddhanta-Mala in the year 1892 from Calcutta, West Bengal, India.

The Thakura cited the famous verse "Shri Madhvah praha vishnum paratamam akhila amnaya-vedyam ca visvam" on the cover of his book.

This famous verse appears in the Prameya-Ratnavali of Shripada Baladeva Vidyabhusana (Prameya-Ratnavali 1.8). This verse is a summary description of the ten fundamental truths of Vaishnavism as enunciated by Shripada Madhvacarya, the founder of the Brahma-Madhva-sampradaya.

This theological treatise of the Thakura presents the fundamental truths of Gaudiya Vaisnavism in a clear, concise format of questions and answers. This book was originally published as a philosophical introduction to the five sections of a book describing the method of spreading the Nama Hatta program or the market place of the Holy name of Krishna. We invite the readers to carefully read the Thakura's masterful and elegant presentation and appreciate the depth of His devotion and preaching spirit.
