Book Release: Sri Krishna-lila-stava

By: on Aug. 30, 2007


This month, the BBT released Sri Krishna-lila-stava. Of all Srila Sanatana Goswami’s (circa 1488–1558) books, it’s his shortest and simplest. An offering of praise in 432 verses, it gives a personal meditation on Krishna’s Vrindavana pastimes as told by Sukadeva in Srimad-Bhagavatam.



In Sri Krishna-lila-stava, Srila Sanatana Goswami evokes remembrance of these pastimes by summarizing Sukadeva’s narration in simple verses, a meditation he punctuates with 108 acts of respectfully bowing down. His verses give us a taste of Krishna’s Vrindavan pastimes, one after another, thus immersing us in the nectar of the Bhagavatam.



This edition includes translation and commentary by Gopiparanadhana Dasa and never-before-seen paintings by Russian artist Saccidananda Dasa.



It will soon be available at Krishna.com.
