Narottama Siksa by Yadunandana Swami


Bathing in the Pristine Waters of Srila Narottama Dasa Thakura’s Teachings – This is the subtitle of this new book coming from the inspired heart of Yadunandana Swami, who takes the reader on a journey to the intimate corners of Srila Narottama Das Thakur’s feelings & emotions. Written while on a devotional retreat at the Bhaktivedanta-asrama located under the shelter of the most sacred Govardhana hill, this book brings new realisations, reflections and contemplations on the life and writing of one of the most influential powerful and sweet Vaisnava Acarya in the disciplic line of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.

The book is divided into 9 chapters, each dealing progressively with different aspects of the poetic writing of Srila Narottama Das Thakur and bringing the reader to higher and higher dimensions of devotion. Rather than writing more about the book, it is more powerful to give a short rundown of the content, which speak much more volumes than lines of words.
