Hence, for inducing the pure devotees to relish bhakti-rasa and for bestowing benefit upon the general public and the faithful, I gathered with great effort the commentary written by Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti, the crest-jewel of devotees, who is a staunch stalwart following the conclusions Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. I thus published the Srimad Bhagavad-Gita including the above mentioned commentary, as well as Bengali translation named rasika ranjana, which is in line with the said commentary.

Srila Baladeva Vidyabhusana Gita-bhasya is also in accordance with the teachings of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. This commentary of Srila Baladeva Vidyabhusana consistsmainly of philosophical thoughts, whereas the commentary of Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti is fully complete in both the aspects of philosophical thoughts as well as poetic ornaments of priti-rasa in the mood of inspiration.

Jagad-guru Srila Bhaktisidhanta Sarasvati Gosvami Prabhupada has also said, "There are numerous expositions, commentaries and translations of Srimad Bhagavad-Gita currently existing in many languages. Although the Bhagavad-Gita is very popular among the masses, in accordance with the conceptions of the Gaudiya Vaisnavas, Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti has written the commentary Saratha-varsini for the Gaudiya Vaisnava rasika bhaktas. Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti is situated as the fourth descendent in the sisya-parampara from Srila Narottama Thakura. He is an acarya par excellent and a guardian of Gaudiya Vaisnava siddhanta and he lived and wrote in the medieval period of its historical progress. The following verse about him is very famous:
