Nimbarka's commentary on the Brahma-Sutras known as the Vedanta-Parijata-Saurabha, and that of his immediate disciple Srinivasa styled the Vendanta-Kaustubha are the chief works of the school of philosophy associated with the name of Nimbarka. The latter is not, however, a mere commentary on the former, as is sometimes wrongly supposed, but a full exposition of the views expressed in the Vedanta-Parijata-Saurabha which is very terse and concise and is not always clear.

Both the treatises are therefore essential for the proper understanding of the doctrine of Nimbarka. This authoritative English Edition of the Vedanta-Parijata-Saurabha has been prepared after carefully comparing the manuscripts Nos. E164, 2480, 2481 and 3273 of the India Office Library and the printed Sanskrit texts of the Kasi, Brindaban and Chowkhamba Sereis. The translation of the Vedanta-Kaustubha was based on the Sanskrit texts of the Kasi and Brindaban editions. Differences of readings of the various manuscripts and printed texts of both the treatises have been noted in the footnotes.
