Śrī Vraja-maṇḍala Parikramā
For over fifty years, Śrī Vraja-maṇḍala parikramā, inaugurated by Śrīman Mahāprabhu Himself, has been conducted under the supervision and guidance of Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja. This beautifully presented book, replete with pictures, is an exposition of the well known and also confidential places of Śrī Kṛṣṇa's sweet Vṛndāvana pastimes. The ambrosial nectar flowing through these pages fills the heart with transcendental happiness.
For thousands of years, devotees have sung Śrī Dāmodarāṣṭakam, especially in the revered month of Kārtika. These eight verses mark the profound blossoming of Śrī Satyavrata Muni's love for Śrī Dāmodara, as he prays, "Please appear before me in Your beautiful, eternal form as a young cowherd-boy, and grant me the perfection of life." The true meaning of this prayer remained mostly hidden until the late 1500s, when Śrīla Sanātana Gosvāmī wrote his elucidating commentary. Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja's lively and poignant supplementary commentary serves to make these essential meanings even more accessible to us.
