This is a summary study of Bhakti-Rasamrita-Sindhu, the Vaishnava classic written by Srila Rupa Goswami that analyzes the various stages of bhakti (devotion) as a methodical practice resulting in love of God. Rupa Goswami uses a metaphor comparing an ocean (sindhu) to a devotional relationship with God.

Nectar of devotion

Description of pure devotional service

Krishna is all-attractive, but pure devotional service attracts even Him. So, pure devotional service is even transcendentally stronger than Krishna Himsel. Because it is Krishna’s internal potency.

Anyone can become Vaisnava despite caste

The so-called brahmanas claim that one who is not born into a brahmana family cannot receive the sacred thread and cannot become a high-grade Vaisnava. But we do not accept such a theory because it is not supported by Rupa Gosvami nor by the strength of the various scriptures.

Position of guru/ spiritual master

In other words, the disciple should accept the spiritual master as God because he is the external manifestation of Krishna.

Spontaneous love for Krishna

The spontaneous dealings of the residents of Vrindavana in relationship with Krishna are called raganuga.

Ever youthful Krishna

Krishna’s age is considered in three periods: from His appearance day to the end of His sixth year is called kaumara. From the beginning of the sixth year up to the tenth year is called paugaṇḍa. And from the tenth to the sixteenth year is called kaiśora. After the beginning of the sixteenth year, Krishna is called a yauvana or a youth, and this continues with no change.

    ” The epitome of engaging intelligence is to utilizes it in understanding the deep philosophical subjects matters deals with self-realisation and regaining spiritual nature of which we are used for. The relationship between the living entity and Krishna is full of the ocean of nectar with unending spontaneous love. With every activity, we struggle hard to achieve something or after achieving to retain it, however, struggling in spirituality gives us no diminution if perfection is not achieved. This book ‘ The nectar of Devotion’ explains the stages of devotional service and pleasure experienced at different stages and to attain the highest pinnacle of pleasure.”
