Padyavali 150

This book is an anthology of verses written by many different poets who lived in different centuries and in different parts of India. Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī gathered all these poems and wove them together, creating an extraordinarily rich brocaded tapestry. The result is a treasury of unending delight that sheds light on the highest, most confidential moods of Vraja. Padyāvalī is one of Rūpa Gosvāmī’s earlier books, and is considered by some to be his most important one. Why? Because herein is the first recording of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu’s Śrī Śikṣāṣṭakam, and Śrī Kṛṣṇadāsa Kavirāja took it from here for his Śrī Caitanya-caritāmṛta.
