Srila Visvanatha Chakravarti Thakura's Sri Gauranga-Lilamrita (with further text by his disciple Sri Krishna dasa) has been published by devotee publisher, Bookwrights Press. This rare classic (available no where else in English) was translated by Dasaratha-Suta dasa (ACBSP). It is a full day in the life of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu prior to His accepting the sannyasa order. A very sweet and rare manuscript, it is full of transcendental nectar.

Bookwrights Press publisher, Mayapriya devi dasi (ACBSP) decided to publish some of the books translated by Dasaratha-Suta Das, because due to health issues, he was no longer able to issue his books, many of which have not been translated by others and are from extremely rare manuscripts.

The next book published will be Preyo Bhakti Rasarnava (Cowherd Boys Nectar) by Sri Nayanananda Thakur (c. 1731 AD). In the future the press hopes to publish books by other ISKCON authors as well.
