Lord Krishna, Whose glory is a feast for our ears, is relishing Sri Krishna-Karnamritam, the Nectar-For-Sri Krishna's-Ears

(Preface)

 

Sri Sri Krishna-Karnâmritam is a divine text composed by the great poet Sri Bilvamangal Thâkur. He was a supreme lover of God. His heart was full of anurâg. In this text he has expressed  his heartfelt realizations. Sri Sri Krishna-Karnâmritam is overflowing with prem and ras. It is extremely sweet. It is a beautiful picture of ras-lamentations, musings and conversations arising in the delightful heart of a sâdhak. It is a burning example of how Sri Bhagavân’s excellences can submerge one who is steeped in sense gratification. Sri Krishna-Bhakti is so glorious! It can fill the innermost compartments of our hearts with prem and create a grand feast of ras. It can float us in the milky ocean of bliss and give rise to so many delightful waves of ras-realization. Read the rest of this entry »

Srila Kavirâj Goswâmipâd has written this purport.  He is a poet of very high stature.  This fact is very much evident from his texts such as Sri Govinda Lilâmrita and Sri Chaitanya-Charitâmrita.  The Sâranga Rangadâ purport highlights his extraordinary wisdom, divine learning and expertise in bringing out confidential Rasas1.  He has drawn a beautiful picture of Sri Lilâshuk’s bhâv in siddha-deha2.  While doing so he has narrated many wonderful and sweet pastimes.  To tell you the truth Read the rest of this entry »

SUBODHANI PURPORT

Srila Chaitanyadâs Goswâmi’s ‘Subodhani’ purport is right next to Sri Krishna-Vallabhâ purport.  Many are of the opinion that Sri Chaitanya dâs was the elder brother of Sri Kavi Karnapur.  However, there is no evidence to show that Sri Shivânanda Sen1‘s son Sri Chaitanyadâs had ever written any book or purport.  At the end of Subodhani purport we find – Read the rest of this entry »

Vânivilâs Press of Sri Rangam has published them. There is another purport called ‘Karnânanda prakâshini’ (Delight of the auditory senses).

Where did Lilâshuk reside?  Many South Indian Pandits feel that he belonged to Keralâ and established the Math (Temple) at Natville in Trichur as his residence. Just as the Presidents of the four Maths established by Shankarâchârya are conferred the title of ‘Shankarâchârya’, the president of the Natville Math is given the title ‘Bilvamangal Swâmiyâr’.  The sanyâsis of this Math reserve the right to offer flowers before anyone else in the Padmanâbha Mandir of Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum).  Read the rest of this entry »
