In the couplet, hari guru bhaju nit govind radhe, bhav nishkam ananya bana de, Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj summarises the objective of spirituality by presenting the essence of the Vedas and all other scriptures.

In this book, those explanations have been arranged sequentially, so a daily routine of reading, reflection, bhakti, and meditation can be undertaken.

Bar Bar Padho, Suno, Samjho is a compilation of excerpts from some of those discourses.
