Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura
Commentary by Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja
Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura presents an astounding analysis of the maha-mantra based on Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s Siksastakam. Supporting his presentation by referencing abundant quotes from Vedic literature, he guides the practitioner of bhakti through the successive stages of perfection, from sraddha (initial faith) to prema (pure love of God). In Bhajana-rahasya-vrtti, the first ever commentary on this text, Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja has expanded on the meaning of each verse. In easily comprehensible language, he illuminates the process of bhajana.
