Tattva Sandarbha, the first book of the Ṣaṭ Sandarbhas, is the smallest in size but not in importance. As its name suggests, it discusses the Reality (Tattva) that is the ultimate subject to be understood and realized. Tattva also means “essence,” and thus Tattva Sandarbha provides the essence of what is to be elaborated upon in the rest of the Sandarbhas. Thus, it serves as an introduction to them and lays the foundation for entry into the subject matter of Bhāgavata Purāṇa, which Jīva Gosvāmī first establishes as the supreme authority in the matter of the self-disclosure of the Absolute Reality, Bhagavān.

The Vedas are beginningless. Just as God is without a beginning, then his knowledge is also without a beginning. It may be revealed at a certain point in time to a specific person, but that does not mean that the Veda did not exist before. God’s knowledge is eternal because it’s God’s knowledge. The attributes of an eternal object are also eternal. That is why we are also eternal. We also have no beginning. The soul is not created because it is one of the potencies of God.
