The fundamental truths regarding the nature and identity of the soul are beyond material time, space, words, and thoughts; the topic is thus mystifying. Many practitioners of bhakti-yoga, as well as inquisitive spiritually-minded persons, have deliberated and pondered these truths since time immemorial. In recent times, throughout the Vaiṣṇava world, there have been various enquiries about this subject matter. Svarūpa of the Jīva is a response to such enquiries. To our knowledge, the information and resources elucidating the angle of vision of Śrīla Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja and Śrīla Bhaktivedānta Svāmī Prabhupāda, as well as that of their contemporaries in the line of Śrīla Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura and Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura, has not yet been compiled in a single publication. This compilation is a humble attempt to fulfill that purpose. It is a documentation of the verses, commentaries, and excerpts of the books, lectures, and discussions of our disciplic succession of self-realized gurus – as well as the words of the ancient Vedic literatures that form the basis of their teachings – regarding the svarūpa of the jīva being inherent in his constitution.
