About the Author

Our most worshipful master, sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja, took his divine birth in this world in 1921, Bihar, India. In February 1945, he met and dedicated his life to his gurudeva, Sri Srimad Bhakti Prajnana kesava Gosvami Maharaja.

His gurudeva instructed him to translate Gaudiya Vaisnavas literatures into Hindi. The writings and commentaries of Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura comprise more than one dozen of these translations. He would often quote a famous aphorism which stated that Ujjvala nilamani kirana is the life of Gaudiya Vaisnavas.

A pure exponent of Gaudiya Vaisnavism, he travelled the globe between 1996 and 2010, giving the sublime teachings of Gaudiya Vaisnavism to all.

 

Introduction

This book is written by the crest jewel of Gaudiya Vaisnava acaryas and the most worshipful of those who give sublime spiritual instructions, Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti adoration.

Srila Rupa Gosvami, the Very dear eternal associate of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, established Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's innermost desires in this world. He has compiled a scripture named Ujjvala nilamani, which is replete with realization of the ultimate, most effulgent mellow of amorous love for Sri Krsna, the king of Vraja and the emporium of all rasa. Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura has taken the very essence of what was compiled it in very simple Rupa Gosvami in Ujjvala nilamani and presented it in very simple and easily understandable Sabsjrut language, just like putting the entire ocean in a pot. This book briefly describes the following topics (1) Sri krsna, the crest jewel of all heroes, or nayakas, and the visaya alambana, object, of ujjvala rasa, the transcendental effulgent mellow of amorous love (2) the heroines or nayikas, who are the asraya alambana, or abodes, of this rasa, (3) svabhava – the natures of those heroines, (4) duties the identity of the various female messengers, (5) the five varieties of sakhis (6) vaya kala their various ages, (7) uddipana vibhava- that which stimulates rasa, (8) anubhava – samuha the actions that display the spiritual emotions situated within the heart (9) sattvika bhava samuha eight symptoms of spiritual ecstasy arising exclusively from sattva, (10) bhavotpatti the awakening of bhava, (11) sthayi bhava the permanent emotion in the heart (12) madhura rati attachment in amorous love, (13) the shelter, or asraya of madhura rati (14) the two aspects of srngara rasa of meeting and sepration and other such topics.

 

The life history of Srila visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura

Srila visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura appeared in a family of brahmanas from the Radhiya community of the Nadiya district in West Bengal. He was celebrated by the name Hari-vallabha and had two elder brothers, Ramabhadra and Raghunatha. During his childhood, he completed his study of grammar in the village of Devagrama. He then studied devotional scriptures at the home of his spiritual master in the Saiyadabada village of the Mursidabad district. While living in saiyadabada, he wrote bhakti rasamrta sindhu bindu, Ujjvala-nilamani-kirana and Bhagavatamrta kana. Soon after he renounced household life and went to Vrndavana, where he wrote many other books and commentaries.

After the disappearance of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and the six Gosvamis of Vraja, teh current of Unalloyed devotion continued to flow by the influence of three great personalities : Sri Narottama dasa Thakura, Srinivasa Acarya and Sri Syamananda Prabhu. Srila Visvanatha Cakraavarti Thakura is fourth in the line of disciplic succession coming from Srila Narottama dasa Thakura.

Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
