About the Book

The sweetest, more relishable form of Krishna is His original form, which is manifested exclusively in Vrindavana. It is here in Vrindavana that Krishna eternally has His most intimate pastimes with the top most of His devotees. Any devotee who aspires to serve and associate with Krishna in this topmost of all abodes is welcome to do so provided he has the same mood of total surrender to Krishna as exhibited by the Vrajavasis, the inhabitants of Vrindavana. The Vrajavasis will do anything to please Krishna without any concern for their own personal happiness or unhappiness. They simply want to see that Krishna is totally pleased in all circumstances. Because of their mood of total devotion to Krishna, Krishna becomes their personal properly.

About the Author

His Grace Sriman Sankarsana Dasa Adhikari, a direct disciple of His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, is well known for his internet based training program, The Ultimate Self-Realization Course, through which he guides more than 16,000 subscribers in over one hundred countries every day along the pathway of spiritual perfection.

His Grace appeared in this world in St. Louis, Missouri, USA on 7 November 1947, the tenth day (Dasami) of the most holy month of Kartik according to the Vaisnava calendar. He first met his spiritual master in 1971 and was initiated by him on 12 August of the same year. Srila Prabhupada personally told this new young disciple that he was pleased with his sincerity and enthusiasm for spreading the Krishna consciousness movement.

Sankarsana Dasa Adhikari fully dedicated his life for serving the order of his spiritual master to become a guru and deliver the world. For the last 45 years he has uninterruptedly served his spiritual master’s movement, the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), in various capacities.

In the year 2000, in recognition for his full dedication to Srila Prabhupada’s mission, ISKCON’s Governing Body Commission (GBC) gave him their blessings to initiate disciples.

Since then he regularly travels throughout the globe with his wife, Her Grace Srimati Vishnupriya Mataji enlightening his varied audiences with the supreme science of Krishna consciousness, which has been so kindly bestowed upon him by his spiritual master. He is especially known for his focused seminars on Spiritual purity, Pure devotional service, Grihastha life and Brahmachari classes.

He is appreciated all over the world for his amazing capability to address any question, argument or objection with a most perfect and satisfying reply. His nectarine discourses are not only enlightening but also philosophically enriched, profound and sufficient to bless any sincere seeker with transcendental knowledge and enliven his spiritual life.

I offer my respectful obeisance unto the lotus feet of my spiritual master and unto the feet of all Vaisnavas. I offer my respectful obeisance unto the lotus feet of Srila Rupa Gosvami along with his elder brother Sanataria Gosvami, as well as Raghunatha Dasa and Raghunatha Bhatta, Gopala Bhatta, and Srila Jiva Gosvami. I offer my respectful obeisance to Lord Krsna Caitanya and Lord Nityananda along with Advaita Acarya, Gadadhara, Srivasa, and other associates. I offer my respectful obeisance to Srimati Radharani and Sri Krsna along with their associates Sri Lalita and Visakha.

I offer my respectful obeisance unto His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, who is very dear to Lord Krsna on this earth, having taken shelter at His lotus feet.

Our respectful obeisance are unto you, O spiritual master, servant of Sarasvati Gosvami, You are kindly preaching the message of Lord Caitanyadeva and delivering the Western countries, which are filled with impersonalism and voidism.

May the Supreme Lord who is known as the son of Srimati Saci-devi be transcendentally situated in the innermost chambers of your heart. Resplendent with the radiance of molten gold, He has appeared in the Age of Kali by His causeless mercy to bestow what no incarnation has ever offered before: the most sublime and radiant mellow of devotional service, the mellow of conjugal love.

O Lord Damodara, just as the two sons of Kuvera - Manigriva and Nalakvara - were delivered from the curse of Narada and made into great devotees by You in Your form as a baby tied with rope to a wooden grinding mortar, in the same way, please give to me Your own premabhakti. I only long for this and have no desire for any kind of liberation.

My dear King Rahugana, unless one has the opportunity to smear his entire body with the dust of the lotus feet of great devotees, one cannot realize the Absolute Truth. One cannot realize the Absolute Truth simply by observing celibacy [brahmacarya], strictly following the rules and regulations of householder life, leaving home as a vanaprastha, accepting sannyasa, or undergoing severe penances in winter by keeping oneself submerged in water or surrounding oneself in summer by fire and the scorching heat of the sun. There are many other processes to understand the Absolute Truth, but the Absolute Truth is only revealed to one who has attained the mercy of a great devotee.

'Pure devotional service in Krsna consciousness cannot be had even by pious activity in hundreds and thousands of lives. It can be attained only by paying one price - that is, intense greed to obtain it. If it is available somewhere, one must purchase it without delay.'

In this Age of Kali there is no other means, no other means, no other means for self-realization than chanting the holy name, chanting the holy name, chanting the holy name of Lord Hari.
