With the insightful commentaries of Śrīla Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda woven throughout, these documented accounts of Śrīla Haridāsa Ṭhākura’s life illuminate his astonishing humility, dedication, magnanimity, devotion and numerous other transcendental qualities, and strengthen our relationship with him. By his mercy, we are filled with the hope that one day we, also, will become internally resolute in our chanting of the holy name.

The locations of many places were verifiable, but over time, some places have been forgotten or obscured by changes in landscape, and therefore are not easily located or available for darsana.

nectar-of-Govinda-lila 4ed

Out of the seven hundred verses of the Bhagavad-gītā, Verse 18.65 captures the essence of the entire Gītā: “Absorb your mind and heart in Me, become My devotee, worship Me, offer your praṇāma to Me, and then certainly you will come to Me. I make this promise to you because you are very dear to Me.” The first three chapters of Nectar of Govinda-līlā explain the three elements of this verse in relation to our aim to enter Goloka Vṛndāvana. Other chapters contain a colourful description, infused with pure Gauḍīya siddhānta, of Vasanta-pañcami, the first day of Spring, and other such nectar.

In Purī, India, more than fifty-thousand people yearly attend the ancient ratha-yātrā festival to take darśana of Lord Jagannātha on His chariot, and ten times that view it from other places in India and around the world. Still, the deep significance of ratha-yātrā, being most confidential, is not widely known. The Origin of Ratha-yātrā is rich with this significance, giving Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇavas an invaluable perspective of this festival. The book contains three separate ancient histories of ratha-yātrā as well as associated pastimes that are abundant with philosophical truths.

Pinnacle-of-Devotion

In Murwillumbah, January 1997, devotees eagerly gathered daily to hear Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja's enthralling descriptions of pure devotees' love for Kṛṣṇa, with a higher level of devotion being introduced each successive day. "Come with me," he would begin, and all sat in submission as he gradually presented the pinnacle of devotion: becoming an unalloyed maidservant of Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī. These classes, based on the fourth verse of Śrī Caitanya-caritāmṛta's Ādi-līlā, articulate the purpose of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu's advent with inspiring precision, thus facilitating a clear understanding for all.
