Nectar of Devotion

Nectar of Devotion

This was one of the first books I’ve decided to study on my own and it immediately opened this incredible door into the spiritual reality, the transcendental realm. Supremacy of bhakti is established by its factual definition, examples, description of the process and its charming, attractive, overwhelming waves of devotion to the Supreme Lord that invite each and every one of the readers to dive in and taste the nectar. Truly nectarean book.

A summary study of Srila Rupa Goswami’s Bhakti Rasamrta Sindhu. A general description of devotional service, the regulative principles, and devotional service as the ultimate goal, love of God. Srila Rupa Gosvami was the foremost disciple of Sri Krishna Caitanya, and the Bhakti-rasamrta-sindhu is his literary masterpiece, a classic of devotional literature composed in Sanskrit and describing the complete science of bhakti-yoga, or linking with the Supreme through transcendental loving devotion.

In this summary study, Srila Prabhupada gives a complete translation and provides occasional commentary. Topics include the characteristics of pure devotional service, ecstatic love of God,
the qualities of Sri Krishna, and stimulation for ecstatic love.
