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.

This powerful exposition verifies the inseparability of the philosophical conclusions of Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Svami Maharaja (Srila Prabhupada) and Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja (Srila Gurudeva). Quotes from both, sound siddhantic logic and unarguable evidence serve to refute any misconceptions about this. Related classes by Srila Gurudeva comprise the book’s closing pages. This book helps us understand that the teachings of these two pure Vaisnavas are completely harmonious and complementary.

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.

We trust various persons of authority to inform us about material subject matters, but whom shall we trust in regard to transcendental subject matters and the transcendental world? We cannot experience transcendence with any of our material senses. How then, can we have an idea of that pure reality? We can see the body, but not the soul. How can we verify that there is a soul beyond matter? Though God is everywhere, we don't see Him. How then, can we determine who is God? Although it is evident that we cannot control the world, how can we trust that there is a God from whom this creation has come, and how can we be confident that it is He who controls it? Millions of people are born daily, and millions also die. Who controls this overwhelming tide of birth and death? Sea waves come on schedule, the sun appears on schedule, and new days come with continuous regularity. We do not control those rhythms, yet somehow, everything is maintained.
