We cannot be happy without satisfying our fundamental desire to love. Discover all the intricacies of spiritual love, bhakti in this devotional classic.
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.
Ká¹á¹£á¹a is all-attractive, but pure devotional service attracts even Him. So, pure devotional service is even transcendentally stronger than Ká¹á¹£á¹a Himsel. Because it is Ká¹á¹£á¹aâs internal potency.
The so-called brÄhmaá¹as claim that one who is not born into a brÄhmaá¹a family cannot receive the sacred thread and cannot become a high-grade Vaiá¹£á¹ava. But we do not accept such a theory because it is not supported by RÅ«pa GosvÄmÄ« nor by the strength of the various scriptures.
In other words, the disciple should accept the spiritual master as God because he is the external manifestation of Ká¹á¹£á¹a.
The spontaneous dealings of the residents of Vá¹ndÄvana in relationship with Ká¹á¹£á¹a are called rÄgÄnuga.
Ká¹á¹£á¹aâs age is considered in three periods: from His appearance day to the end of His sixth year is called kaumÄra. From the beginning of the sixth year up to the tenth year is called paugaá¹á¸a. And from the tenth to the sixteenth year is called kaiÅora. After the beginning of the sixteenth year, Ká¹á¹£á¹a is called a yauvana or a youth, and this continues with no change.
