This book talks about the real SÄá¹ khya philosophy, described by Lord Kapila, an incarnation of God, in the ÅrÄ«mad-BhÄgavatam. SÄá¹ khya means the analytical description of the body and the soul. Lord Ká¹á¹£á¹a made an analytical description of the soul just to bring Arjuna to the point of buddhi-yoga, or bhakti-yoga.
Therefore, Lord Ká¹á¹£á¹a’s SÄá¹ khya and Lord Kapila’s SÄá¹ khya, as described in the BhÄgavatam, are one and the same. They are all bhakti-yoga. Lord Ká¹á¹£á¹a said, therefore, that only the less intelligent class of men make a distinction between sÄá¹ khya-yoga and bhakti-yoga.
Later, another Kapiladeva appeared who expounded atheistic SÄá¹ khya philosophy, which dealt with the twenty-four elements but gave no information about God. The original Kapila is called the DevahÅ«ti-putra Kapila, and the other is called the atheist Kapila.
The conclusion is that we should not endeavor for so-called happiness or distress. We should try to attain that position whereby we can understand Ká¹á¹£á¹a and get shelter at His lotus feet. This should be the real human endeavor.
As long as we do not understand Ká¹á¹£á¹a, VÄsudeva, we are still fools. We may advertise ourselves as very great jÃ±ÄnÄ«s, learned personalities. But we are actually fools, which is the ÅÄstric conclusion. If we are actually jÃ±ÄnÄ«s, we should surrender unto Ká¹á¹£á¹a.
This universe is existing due to the GarbhodakaÅÄyÄ« Viá¹£á¹u. We should not think that all these planets are floating in space without any arrangement. There is definitely an arrangement.

Sankhya is both a system of metaphysics, swapping with the elementary principles of the physical universe, and a system of spiritual knowledge, with its method. Lord Kapila is not any ordinary saint or philosopher but He is incarnation of Krishna Himself. The real knowledge disseminates from God because He is the compiler and knower of Vedas. It must be noted that another Kapila came in due course and proposed atheists Sankhya philosophy mimicking the original Lord Kapila. Original lord Kapila is the son of Devahuti mentioned on the cover of the book.
