Rasa Tattva (Divine Love and Amorous Sentiment)
Description
Preface

I do not know how to apologise to my gentle reader for my brazen-facedness in rushing to the pres to publish my unworthy writings on Rasa-Tattva known otherwise as the liquefied mellow principle of devotion which is absolutely foreign to my experince though it is true that I was graciously and mercifully initiated into its mysteries by my Divine Master a couple of years before His disappearance from this mundane sphere. In doing so, I have deliberately brushed aside even the loving command of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu in his words;

"Let your precepts be strictly consistent with what you practice in your day-to-day life as none are going to be benefited by your harangues on matters which were never to your experience.

How can a poor worm and a mere worldling like myself even dream of seeking admittance into the Tran Scendental Amours of the Divine Pair, Sri Radha-Krishna, When Rishis and srutis of old could not gain admittance unless they became spiritual milkmaids of Vraja' when Sri Gayatri herself could not gain their living service until she became Rasa-bedewed as Kama Gayatri; and of Sri Krishna had to seek the mercy of the Transcendental pair by entering into their pastimes in the guise of Anangamanjari, a handmaid of Gopi, who is the spiritual milkmaid?

Let me frankly tell one and all of my readers that the sole object of bringing out this tiny volume on Rasa-Tattva is to place the same as my humblest Love-Offering into the Lotus-palms of my Divine Master who is an Ocean of Mercy and who is every moment fully engaged in tasting the inebriating felicity of the Eternal Pastimes of the Divine Pair in the Spiritual Groves of Brindavana. I do this as I find no other way of rendering more pleasing service to Him to repay my deep debt of gratitude for initiating me into the mysteries of Vraja-Rasa though I know that I do not deserve at all such a great and rare privilege from Him.

But if any of my readers on a perusal of this humble Brochure, feel tempted to taste the rasa relating to the Amours of Radha-Krishna which, as averred by an eminent exponent of Rasa-Tattva, "are the Highest Truth and the Last to be realized on the path of Spiritual Endeavour" he is sure to receive when invoked with absolute sincerity and spirit of self-surrender, the choicest blessings of Sri Guru Deva, the Most-Favoured of Srimathi Radhika who leads all rasa-bedewed soul eventually into her coterie to render whole-time loving service to the Akhila Rasaamrta Murti, figure-in Chief of the Transcendental Pair under Her direction of the lines of the liquefied mellow principle of devotion.

Testimonials
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 !
