The Nectar of Devotion
The Complete Science of Bhakti-Yoga
We cannot be happy without satisfying our fundamental desire to love. Discover all the intricacies of spiritual love, bhakti (devotion), in this devotional classic.
This is a summary study of Bhakti-rasāmṛta-sindhu, the Vaiṣṇava classic written by Rūpa Gosvāmī that analyzes the various stages of bhakti as a methodical practice resulting in love of God.
Rūpa Gosvāmī uses a metaphor comparing an ocean (sindhu) to a devotional relationship with God. The title of the book conveys that loving relationships are enjoyable like sweet nectar and deep like an ocean. However, devotion is truly only meant for the supreme beloved, Kṛṣṇa.
Śrīla Prabhupāda has written this summary study to show the essential understanding of the practices and ideals of Kṛṣṇa consciousness, and to introduce the Western world to the beauty of devotional concepts.
The spiritually thirsty can develop their relationship with Kṛṣṇa by drinking from the unlimited reservoir of The Nectar of Devotion. Drink deeply.
