Sri Nabaji Siddha had written this great text in a simplified manner, and it was highly praised by the then kings and the scholars, and by the devotees of Lord Vithoba. The great saint and poet, Mahipati Bavaji had added some more features in the divine text, “Maha Bhakta Vijayam” during the year 1780 AD and gave a new title for the book as ‘Bhakta Vijaya’.

Those who have read the entire book have experienced many good changes in their lives, and they had shared their experiences with others. Panduranga is a famous form of Lord Krishna, and he is very benevolent towards his devotees. Similar to reading the holy texts Bhagavatham and Bhagavat Gita, we can taste the divine nectar from the divine book, Maha Bhakta Vijayam, in order to attain the grace of Lord Panduranga. In this difficult Kaliyuga, without the grace of the god, nothing is possible. Hence let us fill up our mind with full of spiritual thoughts on Lord Krishna.
