“I am writing something for those very lucky persons who have greed for raga (a state of intense absorption in Sri Krsna due to an unquenchable loving thirst for Him), but who cannot find the path to achieve it. This book will be their guide – a moonbeam (candrika) to illuminate the path (vartma) leading to the loving devotion of the residents of Goloka Vṛndāvana. This path is practically unknown in the world.” This is how Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura introduced 'Sri Rāga-vartma-candrika.' 'The Hidden Path of Devotion' is a presentation of four classes given on this unparalleled classic.
In the early 1990's, Srila Gurudeva gave hundreds of darsanas for several of Srila Prabhupada's senior disciples. During those few years they requested him to discuss some of the Gaudiya Vaisnava literatures, the essence of all the ancient Vedic literatures, such as Jaiva-dharma and SrimadBhagavatam Tenth Canto, and in particular, the chapters in Srimad-Bhagavatam called Rasa-lila, Venu-gita, Bhramara-gita, and Gopi-gita. They also desired to hear discussions on the books Harinama-cintamani, Vilapa-kusumanjali, and Ragavartma-candrika. In the year 1991, Srila Gurudeva led four discussions on Raga-vartma-candrika by Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura, who is considered to be the incarnation of Srila Rupa Gosvami and who came to further illuminate Rupa Gosvami's mission. Years later, Srila Gurudeva requested that all his morning walks and darsanas be published in multi-volumes, and he directed that the 1990's darsanas be published along with those.
