In the conversation between Sri Raya Ramananda and Sriman Mahaprabhu, the prema of Srimati Radhika is established as the crest jewel of all attainments. Later in the conversation, Sri Raya Ramananda describes the very elevated state of devotional love called prema-vilasavivarta. Prema-vilasa-vivarta is a high level of prema experienced by Srimati Radhika when, even at the time of separation from Sri Krsna, due the influence of adhirudha-mahabhava, Srimati Radhika feels that She is meeting with Him.
Upon hearing of this supremely exalted state, Sriman Mahaprabhu accepted it as the soul’s ultimate goal. Sriman Mahaprabhu also accepted that following in the footsteps of the sakhis of Vraja is the only method by which to attain this ultimate goal. By hearing with complete faith this conversation between Sri Ramananda Raya and Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, one will achieve prema-bhakti to the lotus feet of Sri Radha-Krsna, and automatically, as a secondary result, one will also achieve complete knowledge of Krsna tattva, Radha tattva, Prema tattva, and Rasa tattva - the fundamental truths regarding the Supreme Lord, Sri Krsna, His eternal consort Sri Radha, the love They share, and the varieties of exchanges between Sri Krsna and His intimate associates.
