Description

Back of the book

Whatever I have heard is from the local residents of Mathura-mandala, from various literatures, from the Puranas, from other Vedic literatures, and from saintly persons. I am writing this in brief, for the satisfaction of my well-wishers. This book will mainly deal with the subject of executing devotional service on the path of attachment.

 

 

Introduction

In order to attain the transcendental loving service of Sri Sri Radha-Govinda, one must favorably cultivate Krsna consciousness during his life as a practitioner. Cultivation of Krsna consciousness must be executed with the desire to attain the transcendental state of pure devotional service. Other motives that are maintained while practicing sadhana cause one's devotional service to be mixed with karma, or with jnana. Besides this, there can be unfavorable desires hidden within the heart of the practitioner. If this be the case, then even though one's endeavors may appear like devotional service, they are actually nourishing the weeds that choke the devotional creeper.

To cultivate attachment to Krsna's transcendental names, forms, qualities and pastimes, while following in the footsteps of the inhabit-ants of Braja, who are completely absorbed in thoughts of Krsna, is pure devotional service. By cultivating Krsna consciousness with a motive to please Krsna, a practitioner graduates from the conditional stage to the liberated stage, and finally becomes eligible to engage in the eternal service of Sri Sri Radha-Krsna in the spiritual abode of Braja. In order to cultivate Krsna consciousness, one must be familiar with Krsna's eternal associates, as well as their modes of service, otherwise the attainment of pure devotional service will not be possible.

Therefore, to introduce us to the associates of Sri Krsna, Sri Rupa Gosvami Prabhu, who is an eternal associate of Sri Gaurasundara, and who is Sri Rupa Manjari in Braja, has written this book, called Sri Radha-Krsna Ganoddesa Dipika. Many people are not aware of this invaluable book. It is divided in two sections – Brhat and Laghu.

At the end of the Vaisnava tosani commentary on the tenth cato of Srimad Bhagavatam, the following verse is found:

 

tayor anuja srstesu kavyam
sri hamsadutam
Brhallaghutaya khyata
sri ganoddesa dipika

"Sri Sanatana's younger brother, Sri Rupa, has composed books like Hamsadutam, and Brhat and Laghu Ganoddesa Dipika."

This statement is also confirmed in the fifth wave of Sri Bhaktiratnakara.

This book was written approximately in the year 1472 of the Sakaera. There is no doubt that it will give immense pleasure to the devotees of Sri Sri Radha-Krsna.

All glories to the Lord of Sri Radha.

Testimonials
Thanks again Exotic India! Always perfect! Great books, India's wisdom golden peak of knowledge!!!
Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
