Preyo-bhakti-rasarnava (Bhanu Swami)


Sundarananda was an associate of Sri Caitanya and Nityananda. He is identified as Sudama in Krsna’s pastimes and is one of the twelve gopalas, who were associates of Nityananda. Sundarananda’s disciple was Parni-gopala. Hari-carana and Kanu-rama were Parni-gopala’s disciples. Kanu-rama’s son was Gopala-carana. Nayanananda was Gopala-carana’s son. Most of the descriptions for practice in raganugabhakti deal with manjari-bhava in madhurya-rasa. This work is for aspirants of sakhya-rasa, following raganuga-sadhana. In this work Nayanananda follows after the priya-sakha Sudama, who became Sundarananda in Gauranga’s pastimes.

The first four chapters explain uttama-bhakti, with ample quotations from Bhakti-rasamrta-sindhu. The fifth and sixth chapters describe Sudama, his associates and their abodes. The daily pastimes of the sakhas is described in the remaining four chapters.

Translated by Bhanu Swami.
