Sri Narayana, pleased by Lord Brahma's penance, tells him in four verses (found in the ninth chapter of the Second Canto of Srimad-Bhagavatam) the entire essence of Srimad-Bhagavatam, profound with deep meaning subject to different interpretation by different sampradayas.
This edition is unique in that it has commentaries and their translations done by prominent acaryas of four different Vaisnava sampradayas. It is especially filled with a rasamayi interpretation of these four verses as done by acaryas of the Gaudiya Vaishnava sampradaya.
This book is a complete guide, both to the beginners and scholars, regarding all the four Vaishnavas sampradayas and their philosophy. It contains a brief life sketch of the four acaryas of the four Vaisnava sampradayas and also philosophical conclusions of each of these sampradayas. It also includes the acintya-bhedabheda siddhanta of Gaudiya Vaisnavism (Sri Brahma-Madhva-Gaudiya sampradaya), a special branch of the Madhva sampradaya, as given by Svayam Bhagavan Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
"Sri Damodarastakam is eternal; therefore we should study it, sing it out loud, and discuss it, not just during the month of Kartika, but every day throughout Caturmasya. It is so important that it is worth reading every month and indeeed every day of the year. If this Sri Damodarastakam is glorified in a sublimely pure way, Sri Damodara will become pleased. It is with this intention that with great effort we have compiled this book."

An excerpt from a lecture entitled "The Jewel Book":
"Sri Gita-govinda is a 'jewel book' brought by Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. We all know that Sri Jayadeva Gosvami has written this beautiful Gita-govinda, but without Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu it would have remained locked like a pearl in the oyster shell or a jewel in a locked case. Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu manifested the glories of Sri Gita-govinda. Just as without Srila Rupa Gosvami no one would have known the inner moods of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, similarly, by Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu relishing the moods of Sri Gita-govinda its glories became manifest for the whole world. I have explained this very high-class philosophy, but only rare devotees in this world can understand it. I have called you here only to give you this."
