Upadesamrta - Nectar of Instruction

Next Semester: TBA

Lord Caitanya advented 500 years ago to bestow upon mankind the most intimate love of God known as prema-bhakti. He especially empowered Rupa Gosvami to write books instructing devotees how to develop this type of love, and thus Rupa Gosvami's The Nectar of Instruction (Upadesamrta) is a compilation of 11 verses outlining spiritual steps one must apply to cultivate such love.
