This book is a collection of lectures delivered by one of the most renowned Vaisnava preceptors of modern times, our beloved Gurudeva, Om Visnupada Astottara sata Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Maharaja. Spoken originally in Hindi, these lectures were recorded in January 1991 at Sri Kesavaji Gaudiya Matha in Mathura,Uttar Pradesh, India. They comprise a single instalment of an immaculate running commentary that Srila Gurudeva spoke over a period of two years on Srila Sanatana Gosvamipada's Brhad Bhagavatamrta. Each chapter of this book is comprised of a single lecture, totalling twelve in all. The Brhad-bhagavatamrta is a lengthy scripture, and the material included here covers exclusively verses from the fourth chapter of the second part.
Described herein is how, although having recently arrived in Sri Vaikuntha Dhama, the most desirable of places and the entrance to which is sought after by unlimited saintly persons, Gopa Kumara is feeling despondent and cannot even ascertain the cause of his own dissatisfaction. At that time he is approached by Sri Narada Rsi, who becomes his instructing spiritual master and enlightens him with the understanding necessary to complete his spiritual journey and thereby attain the fulfilment of all his long-cherished internal desires. Gopa-kumara's consequent determination to attain the eternal company of Sri Krsna in Vraja inspires him to continue chanting his Gopala Mantra until he is fully successful. Devotees who themselves sincerely yearn to one day go beyond Vaikuntha and enter Sri GolokaVraja, the transcendental land of spontaneous loving devotion to Sri Sri Radha-Govinda, will find the story of Gopa-kumara particularly useful.
