In February 1997, Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja gave his divine teachings to devotees in Australia, where he spent three weeks as part of his Bhakti Festival touring in the West. There he lectured on the principle causes for Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s appearance in this world. He also revealed the special gift which Mahaprabhu came to give the fortunate souls of this ironage of Kali-yuga - a gift which is the very pinnacle of attainment for the spirit soul.
Pinnacle of Devotion, its source of knowledge taken from the ancient mystical Vedas, teaches us how to love all living beings - humans, birds, beasts, insects, and even trees and plants - by the easy method of loving Krsna. Pouring water on the root of a tree is the universal and practical method of supplying water to all the leaves and branches. In that connection, the Vedas say that Krsna, the Supreme Person, is the root of all. All beings are His parts, and therefore by loving Him, everyone becomes happy.
In this book you will find that this elevated concept is written in very simple, easy to understand language, because the words herein were spoken that way by Srila Narayana Gosvami Maharaja and then transcribed. If you feel some hesitancy to continue reading because of the several Sanskrit verses, phrases, and words scattered here and there, please don’t miss this opportunity, even if this is the first time you are coming in contact with the Sanskrit language. Even if you don’t understand the language, the transcendentally Pinnacle Of Devotion powerful verses, which are like mantras for meditation, free us from false material love. Material love is always frustrating. Reading, hearing, and uttering these verses gives us an opportunity to enter the all-blissful, loving Reality. You will also be happy to know that all the Sanskrit verses, phrases, and words are always translated.
