Sri Guru Darsana
This book, Śrī Guru Darśana, is a revelation or darśana of the life of Śrīla Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja, an eternal associate of Rādhā-Kṛṣṇa sent from Vraja, as well as his darśana or teachings to the world. He came in an unbroken succession of divine masters, descending from the Supreme Lord Himself, the original Divine Master. Such a spiritual lineage is considered a prerequisite for a bona fide guru by religious authorities throughout India.
Śrīla Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja, renowned as Śrīla Gurudeva, embodies all the descriptions of a pure guru of the highest caliber, as evidenced in the Vedic scriptures. He spent five decades serving the mission of his spiritual master. Having fully assimilated his master’s teachings, he then traveled the globe thirty-one times to fulfill the heart’s desire of his Guru-varga (spiritual lineage of gurus) by broadcasting the message of divine love for Kṛṣṇa. He left an invaluable legacy by publishing scores of books. Concurrent to his literary legacy, the legacy of his loving dealings, humility, and purity, touched the hearts of people around the world. He truly practiced what he taught; therefore he was able to transform the lives of hundreds of thousands. This edition, of 1400 pages, comes with gilding and 96 Color Plates.
