In the chapter called Veṇu-gīta, some of the towering waves of this gopī-prema can be seen. A yearning to be immersed in this nectarean ocean sprouts in the hearts of the faithful devotees who are situated on its shore. In his beautiful elucidation on the verses of Veṇu-gīta, Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja reveals the depth of the commentaries his spiritual predecessors, Śrīla Jīva Gosvāmī and Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī Ṭhākura.
This book is a unique and invaluable contribution to our authentic Gaudiya Vaisnava literatures. If any sincere person reads it with an open mind, his heart will surely be attracted and infused with the desire to seriously cultivate vraja-bhakti. The introduction is also significant with its presentation of many authentic proofs in establishing what is the qualification to hear these confidential topics and in asserting that it is actually our duty to hear them from bona fide Vaisnavas in our disciplic line. Presenting many charming descriptions of the moods of the gopis who speak the Venu-Gita, this grantha is a beautiful and priceless gift given by our venerable Gurudeva to the sadhaka who is aspiring to do raganuga bhajana.
Srimad-Bhagavatam is a direct manifestation of the Supreme Lord. It is an ambrosial, overflowing ocean of supremely sweet nectarean love (prema-rasa) for the original Supreme Personality of Godhead (Svayam Bhagavan), that is, Vrajendra-nandana Sri Krsna, the personification of divine mellows. Rasika and bhavuka devotees absorbed in tasting the beauty of Krsna’s pastimes, always drown in this ocean. Srimad-Bhagavatam is the fully ripened, juicy fruit of the desire tree of Vedic literature that comprises the entirety of Indian thought. Within Srimad-Bhagavatam, gopi-prema, the love of the cowherd maidens of Vraja, has been ascertained to
be the ultimate objective.
A few towering waves of gopi-prema can be seen from the Venu-gita portion of Srimad-Bhagavatam. Rasika devotees, who are seasoned in experiencing divine loving sentiments, drown themselves in these waves and even lose all consciousness of their own bodies. Greed to be immersed in this ambrosial ocean sprouts also in the hearts of the faithful devotees who are situated on the shore of this ocean.
