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."

GopiGita

Bhakti-rasāyana, In this beautiful song of the gopīs, we are taken to Śrī Vṛndāvana, to the bank of the Yamunā, where the gopīs are expressing the deep pain in their hearts in separation from Śrī Kṛṣṇa. The moods of their song would be impossible to understand had our venerable ācāryas not revealed them. In Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja’s commentary, he draws on the meanings they imparted, sprinkling them with the splendid realizations in his own heart, along with well grounded instruction for us all.

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.

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.

Other chapters contain a colourful description, infused with pure Gauḍīya siddhānta, of Vasanta-pañcami, the first day of Spring, and other such nectar.
