In April of 1913, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur Prabhupada established a publishing house named Bhagavata Yantralaya in Calcutta’s Kalighat area. The first book printed was Chaitanya Charitamrita with his Anubhasya commentary. Others which followed were the Bhagavad Gita with Srila Vishvanatha Thakur’s commentary and the Gaurakrishnodaya maha-vakya of the Orissan poet, Govinda Das. After Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur’s disappearance on June 23 – 1914, Sarasvati Thakur took over the editorship of Sajjana-tosani, the monthly magazine founded by his father.
In January of 1915, the press was moved to Vraja-pattan in Mayapur where more books were published.
