GVP Book Publication 2016 Updates

Below are the latest GVP Book Publication projects that need your support:
 Śrī Nāmācārya  Haridāsa Thākura

Why is he heralded as nāmācārya – one who, by example, teaches the world to chant the holy name? Because his blissful absorption in chanting, even in the face of severe adversity, does not waver for a fraction of a moment. This small book, compiled for our eternal benefit by Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja, consists of approximately twenty pastimes of Śrīla Haridāsa Ṭhākura, as narrated in Śrī Caitanya-caritāmṛtaŚrī Caitanya-bhāgavata and other books.

GVP Book Publication Updates

Below are the latest GVP Book Publication projects that need your support:

Walking With A Saint – 2010

The scriptures tell us of the incalculable value of even a moment’s association with a true saint and Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja is exalted even among saints. The significance of this particular volume is that it contains the last of his darśanas and instructions, given months prior to his entrance into Rādhā and Kṛṣṇa’s eternal pastimes.

We have transcribed all of the darśanas and are in the process of editing them and checking the sound files.

Śrī Mādhurya-kādambinī

In this book, Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī Ṭhākura delineates the stages of bhakti, from śraddhā to prema. His penetrating analysis of each stage helps us understand what is natural and to be expected at each level. His compassionate exposition serves to encourage us and also creates within us a hope that one day we will certainly attain krsna-prema.

We are aware that the assembly of Vaiṣṇavas has been eagerly waiting for the production of this book and regret our not being able publish it yet. This has been due to the demand of several other publication tasks, both English and Hindi. At this point, the book is sixty percent complete. We are doing our best to get it to you as soon as possible.


The sole focus of the revered Gauḍīya classic Ujjvala-nīlamaī is ujjvala-rasa, or mādhurya-rasa. It is veritable treasure house of information on Śrī Kṛṣṇa’s loving affairs with His beloved gopīs, elaborately describing their moods, services, identities, pastimes, stimulants of amour, divisions of heroines, types of messengers and so forth.

At this point, eleven of Ujjvala-nīlamaī’s fifteen chapters have been translated. We have organized our team and hopefully by June 2015, the process of editing and fidelity checking this great work will begin.


Śrī Sakalpa-kalpadruma

The prayers of Śrī Sakalpa-kalpadruma, the desire-tree of auspicious resolve, nourish the mood of becoming a maidservant of the maidservant of the maidservant of Śrīmatī Rādhikā, and only that. Herein, Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī Ṭhākura reveals the service he is performing in his mind and the highest aspiration of the Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇavas: to serve Śrī Rādhā and Śrī Kṛṣṇa in Their eightfold daily pastimes.

This book was first published in 2009. This second edition contains minor editorial adjustments, in accordance with our ongoing attempt to improve our delivery of the writings and translations of Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja.

Secret Truths of the Bhāgavatam

This transcription of the lively classes given by Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja in Badger 1999 gives the highest education on the true purpose of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, its inner meaning, and how to make it relevant to our life. As usual, Śrīla Mahārāja presents such lofty content in such a way that is enthralling and easily comprehensible.

This book was first published in 2000, and currently it is being carefully reviewed and updated according to the GVP standards we have developed over the years. The classes therein are so delightful that we are confident it will be well received by all.

The Distinctive Contribution of Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī

Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja, whose heart and soul are the teachings of Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī, distils the essence of those teachings in this nectarean monograph. From parakīya-bhāvaand bhakti-rasa to the characteristics of uttama-bhakti and prema-bhakti, all are explained and defended.

This booklet was first printed in 2010 and was divided into two parts: half the text was in English, half Hindi. This second printing will be in English only and will also contain the article “Uttamā-bhakti” by Śrīla Bhakti Prajñāna Keśava Gosvāmī Mahārāja, a biography of Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī and two bhajanas about him.








Prasadam, Kirtan and Books for Victims of Hurricane Yolanda

Recently, two or more Islands in our Country were severely hit by SUPER TYPHOON YOLANDA (HAIYAN). The damage was so severe that more than eighty percent of the houses and infrastructures in Tacloban City, Guian, and the neighboring Towns were devastated. Almost 5,000 dead bodies were recovered and few thousand more are missing and believed to have been swallowed by the current of the ocean. Thousands of people lost their homes and loved ones. The situation was shocking that even the Government was not able to make an immediate response to the calamity. It took them almost a week before they could decide what to do, where to start, and what should be done.

"New Nilachala"

For over 15 years, we have been a community of Gaudiya Vaishnav aspirants, who spontaneously gathered together in the San Francisco Bay Area, mostly on the East Bay side (Berkeley/Oakland/Richmond).

We hope to grow our community both to help us along on our own spiritual path and to make this path visible, accessible and welcoming to all Bay Area residents.

The path of Pure Bhakti

What spiritual path are we trying to follow? The path of Pure Bhakti.
This is the path of seeking loving connection with the Supreme Lord, Sri Krishna, under the auspices of His Divine Consort, Srimati Radharani, in a mood of loving devotion (pure bhakti), through congregational chanting of the holy names (harinam sankirtan), devotional service (bhakti yoga & seva), and the living blessings and guidance of pure and senior devotees (Sadhus and Vaishnav Thakurs) and qualified spiritual master-teachers (Guru-varga).
