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.

Nectar of devotion

Description of pure devotional service

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

Anyone can become Vaiṣṇava despite caste

The so-called brāhmaṇas claim that one who is not born into a brāhmaṇa family cannot receive the sacred thread and cannot become a high-grade Vaiṣṇava. But we do not accept such a theory because it is not supported by Rūpa Gosvāmī 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 Kṛṣṇa.

Spontaneous love for Kṛṣṇa

The spontaneous dealings of the residents of Vṛndāvana in relationship with Kṛṣṇa are called rāgānuga.

Ever youthful Kṛṣṇa

Kṛṣṇa’s age is considered in three periods: from His appearance day to the end of His sixth year is called kaumāra. 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, Kṛṣṇa 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.”
