Saṅkalpa-kaumudī – A Moonbeam on Determination(Kṛṣṇa in Vṛndāvana Book 5)
By Sivarama Swami (Author)
Inspired by Śrīla Sanātana Gosvāmī’s Bṛhad-bhāgavatāmṛta and the tireless effort of its central character, Gopa-kumāra, to perfect his devotional service, Saṅkalpa-kaumudī, “A Moonbeam on Determination,” casts a unique light on four aspects of sādhana-bhakti that arise from the pages of Bṛhad-bhāgavatāmṛta: saṅkalpa, the determination that enables progress through the stages of devotional service; ekāgratā, the careful attention needed for each successful saṅkalpa; bhāva-sevā, the underlying mood of a saṅkalpa corresponding to the mood of vraja-bhakti; and kṛpā, the divine grace by which practice finally transforms to ecstasy. Saṅkalpa-kaumudī is an attempt to elaborate on these four themes. Extracting the philosophical essence from the writings of Śrīla Pra- bhupāda and the previous ācāryas, Śivarāma Swami brings together their teachings with a unique analysis of bhakti in a most practical and digestible style that everyone—from aspiring sādhakas to pure devotees—will find inspiring, revealing, and life-changing. 980 pages
