The Nectarean Early Pastimes of the Golden Avatara
Translated by Dasaratha Suta dasa
This beautiful Gaudiya Vaishnava classic, Sri Gauranga Lilamrta, is an extremely rare manuscript. The work is a result of the combined efforts of Srila Vishvanatha Chakravarti Thakur and his disciple, Sri Krishna Dasa. Srila Chakravartipada had composed the first eleven verses in Sanskrit, known as Sriman-Mahsprabhor-Ashta-Kaliya-Lila-Smarana-Mangala-Stotram, which are the seed verses or sutras that describe the eternal eightfold daily pastimes of the fair-complexioned Lord. His disciple, Srila Krishna Dasa, composed Bengali verses that expound on these eleven verses to give a fuller, more detailed picture of the Lord’s daily schedule.
This translation, by Dasaratha-Suta Dasa (ACBSP), brings this rare classic to the English audience in all its beauty–allowing us to experience a day in the life of the Golden Avatara.
