Rupa Goswami uses a metaphor comparing an ocean (sindhu) to a devotional relationship with God. The title of the book conveys that loving relationships are enjoyable like sweet nectar and deep like an ocean. However, devotion is truly only meant for the supreme beloved, Krishna.
Srila Prabhupada has written this summary study to show the essential understanding of the practices and ideals of Krishna consciousness, and to introduce the Western world to the beauty of devotional concepts.
The spiritually thirsty can develop their relationship with Krishna by drinking from the unlimited reservoir of The Nectar of Devotion. Drink deeply.
In this summary study, Srila Prabhupada gives a complete translation and provides occasional commentary. Topics include the characteristics of pure devotional service, ecstatic love of God, the qualities of Sri Krishna, and stimulation for ecstatic love. This is the pocket hardbound edition.
