Nectar of Instruction – Don’t Miss It!


 had the occasion the past week to realize again how valuable is the “Nectar of Instruction”, otherwise known as  “Upadesamrta” by Srila Rupa Goswami.  Some devotees asked me how to best become successful in Krishna consciousness, and I remembered the benediction like statement of Srila Prabhupada within it’s preface. 

Srila Prabhuapada writes there,

Srila Prabhupada Happy

“To achieve the highest success in life by becoming a gosvāmī and then a pure devotee of the Lord, one must follow the instructions known as Upadeśāmṛta, which have been given by Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī. Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī has given many other books, such as Bhakti-rasāmṛta-sindhu, Vidagdha-mādhava and Lalita-mādhava, but Upadeśāmṛta constitutes the first instructions for neophyte devotees.

One should follow these instructions very strictly. Then it will be easier to make one’s life successful. Hare Kṛṣṇa.”

So there we have it…..Upadesamrta is only 11 verses long, and the first 8 verses are particularly essential.  Wow, thank you Srila Rupa Goswami and Srila Prabhupada for this opportunity to succeed!
