Raga-vartma-candrika, A moonbeam to illuminate the Path of Spontaneous Devotion
Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura
Commentary by Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja
The pristine glory of Sri Krsna’s loving pastimes with His most exalted and spotlessly pure servitors, the damsels of Vraja, remains a mystery to those who do not take to heart the revelations of Gauḍiya Vaisnava acaryas, of whom Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura is prominent. This book, originally penned in eloquent Sanskrit prose, is like a moon ray (candrika) for those with a deep thirst (raga) to follow the path (vartma) to this love. The commentator, Srila Narayana Gosvami Maharaja, declares that few people even realize that such a path exists, let alone follow it.
