Sri Radha 1ed

Who is Śrī Rādhā? She is the tender, divine counterpart of the Supreme Personality, Śrī Kṛṣṇa. She is the personification of His potency, specifically His potency of bliss, and She kindly bestows that transcendental bliss upon anyone who takes shelter of Her. This has been fully realized by stalwart practitioners of bhakti, such as the exalted authors of the articles herein. It is their sincere desire to see others relish substantial, never-diminishing happiness, the path to which they skillfully reveal in Śrī Rādhā: Our Supreme Shelter.

Rupa-Goswami-english

What did Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī come to give? Because he understood the heart’s desire of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu, he was able to establish Mahāprabhu’s mission on this earth. Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja, whose heart and soul are the teachings of Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī, distils the essence of those teachings in this nectarean monograph.

Ujjvala-nilamani-kirana 1Ed-2013

Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī, the very dear eternal associate of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu, established Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu’s innermost desires in this world. He has compiled a scripture named Ujjvala-nīlamaṇi, which is replete with realization of the ultimate, most effulgent mellow of amorous love for Śrī Kṛṣṇa, the king of Vraja and the emporium of all rasa. Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī Ṭhākura has taken the very essence of what was compiled by Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī in Ujjvala-nīlamaṇi and presented it in very simple and easily understandable Sanskrit language, just like putting the entire ocean in a pot.

This unprecedented edition contains the commentaries Srila Radha-ramana dasa Gosvami, Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura and Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Gosvami Prabhupada. Translated from the Hindi edition of Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja, Sri Upadesamrta gives instructions indispensable for practitioners of the devotional path. Without following these instructions, entering the realm of pure devotion and especially following the intricate and elevated path of spontaneous devotion (raganuga-bhakti) is not only difficult, but impossible.

utkalika-vallari

Srila Rupa Gosvami, being Sri Gaurahari's topmost associate, was saturated with His mercy. As the acarya of transcendental rasa-sastras, he wrote invaluable literatures, including the most exceptional Sri Stava-mala, "A Garland of Prayers,"which was actually compiled later by Srila Jiva Gosvami. Utkalika-vallari, one of the flowers in this garland, is a poetic entreaty for the service of Sri Sri Radha-Krsna. Srila Rupa Gosvamipada's sweet devotion to unnata-ujjvala-madhurya-mayi-bhakti, "the brilliantly shining amorous mellow,“ is a honeybee whose delightful humming, here at its finest, has fully blossomed in this prayer. Utkalika means 'very intense eagerness mixed with extreme restlessness,' and vallari means 'creeper;' hence Utkalika-vallari means "The Vine of Intense Longings."

Vaishnava_Siddhanta_Mala

Based on Prameya-ratnāvalī of Śrī Baladeva Vidyābhūṣaṇa, Vaiṣṇava-siddhānta-mālā is a lively presentation of the nine prameyas, or truths. Clear and simple answers are given to many questions, such as, “What is the guru-paramaparā?” What is the śakti, or potency, of Bhagavān?” “If the pastimes of Śrī Kṛṣṇa are beyond matter, then how were they able to be seen at the end of Dvāpara-yuga?” “If Bhagavān is attained through the soul’s own self-manifested knowledge, then what is the necessity of studying the Vedic scriptures?” “Are all souls of one type or are there different gradations among them?” This book also contains an authoritative deliberation on the subject of the holy name and the different stages of chanting.

Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam is the fully ripened, nectarean fruit of the desire tree of all Vedic literature, and within this Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, gopī-prema has been ascertained to be the ultimate objective of the living being. In the chapter called Veṇu-gīta, some of the towering waves of this gopī-prema can be seen, and yearning to be immersed in this nectarean ocean sprouts even in the hearts of the faithful devotees who are situated on its shore. In his beautiful commentary on the verses of Veṇu-gīta, Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja reveals the depth of the commentaries his spiritual predecessors, Śrīla Jīva Gosvāmī and Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī Ṭhākura.

TheHarmonist

Sri Vraja-mandala parikrama, originally inaugurated by Sriman Mahaprabhu Himself, has been conducted for over fifty years under the supervision and guidance of Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja. This book is a beautiful exposition of the confidential places of Sri Krsna's sweet pastimes in Vraja. The sincere devotee who has a deep thirst to enter into the sweetness of the land of Vraja will find ambrosial nectar flowing through these pages.

 

"Blessed is the land of Vraja, where the creator of the universe, Lord Brahma, dwells in the form of a mountain range in Varsana, to have the dust of the Divine Couple Sri Sri Radha-Krsna's lotus feet on the head: where the maintainer, Lord Visnu, has assumed the forms of Govardhana and Visnu-parvata: where the moon-crested Lord Siva has taken up residence as Nandisvara Hill in Nandagrama: and where Sri Uddhava, the best of Hari's servants, lives as a blade of grass, a small shrub or a creeper on the bank of Kusuma-sarovara."

walking 2007

The scriptures tell us of the incalculable value of even a moment’s association with a true saint, and Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja is exalted even among saints. With great sincerity, his disciples and followers thus availed themselves of any opportunity to accompany him on his morning walks and attend his morning darśanas. In those informal settings, they freely asked a variety of questions, his illuminating responses revealing a mere glimpse of the devotion radiating brilliantly within his heart. Sometimes personal, sometimes disciplinary, sometimes humorous and always loving, he would impart the deepest understandings of the scriptures for the benefit of all. It was on his repeated order that these walks and darśanas be transcribed and published. In this way, he has invited you, also, to walk with him and hear the jewel-like teachings he wants to share with you.
