About the Book

Srila Rupa Gosvami (1489-1564 CE) appeared in vaklakandra - dvipa, West Bengal. Although he became the personal secretary to the king of bengal, he left of everything to dedicate himself to establishing Sri caitanya mahaprabhu's mission. he revealed krsna's pastime place in vrndavana, discovered the ancient deity of Sri Govinda, and wrote voluminously to establish Gaudiya vaisnava philosophy.

His writings, which display uncommon poetic beauty and unique brilliance in the logical thought , have been compared in importance to that of the evangelists in writing the gospels to establish christanity. His work and teaching are alive today in Vrndavana, a town of 5,000 temples, in his literature, which has been translated into a hundred languages, and in the hearts of Gaudiya Vaisnavas , who worship him for having revealed the innermost desire of the lord.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
