The Gopīs' Song of Separation
Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
In this beautiful song of the gopīs, we are taken to Śrī Vṛndāvana, to the bank of the Yamunā, where the gopīs are expressing the deep pain in their hearts in their separation from Śrī Kṛṣṇa. The moods of their song would be impossible to understand had our venerable ācāryas not revealed them. In Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja’s commentary, he draws on the meanings they imparted, sprinkling them with the splendid realizations in his own heart, along with well grounded instructions for us all.
The explanation of these famous verses sung by the Gopis in separation from Krsna after He has left them at the Rasa lila is stunning. The commentaries reveal the moods and counter moods which are expressed in the Sanskrit. Reading the verses alone I never fathomed such deep meanings and moods.
