Just as the sage Bhagiratha brought the River Bhagirathi (Ganga) to the earth, om visnupada Srimad Saccidananda Bhaktivinoda Thakura Mahasaya brought the present flow of the Bhagirathi of pure bhakti to this world. In his book Sri Harinama-cintamani, Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura has presented an extensive deliberation on the glories of holy name, on the distinctions between nama, nama-abhasa and nama-aparadha, and on the method of chanting the holy name. He has complied Sri Bhajana-rahasya as a supplement to Sri Harinama-cintamani. There are eight pairs of names I maha-mantra. In this book, Thakura Mahasaya describes the mercy of these eight pairs of names, and provides a remarkably beautiful glimpse of how to cultivate one's contemplation of asta-kaliya-lila through the chanting of the maha-mantra.
Several years ago, at the request of the sincere devotees of Mathura and Vrndavana, I continuously spoke on this book for some time. The listeners gave rapt attention and I also felt boundless joy. When I had completed my classes, the faithful listeners repeatedly requested me to publish a Hind edition of this book. At that time, however, I was busy publishing some books by Sri Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura in particular his commentary on Bhagavad-Gita and I was also engaged in preaching pure bhakti, as practised and propagated by Sriman Mahaprabhu, around the world. Therefore I was unable to give this project my attention.
Some time late, I retuned from preaching in the West to Sri Kesavaji Gaudiya Matha in Mathura. During the month of Karttika, daughter Kumari Savita gave me manuscript of Sri Bhajana-rahasya in Hindi with my commentary, Bhajana-rahasya-vrtti. I was so pleased and asked her how she had prepared it. She humbly replied that she had compiled it from notes she had care fully taken during my lectures. I kept the manuscript with me and after Karttika-vrata, took it with me when I again went abroad to preach.
We arrived at the very beautiful island of Cebu, which, being part of the Philippines, is situated in the Pacific Ocean. When, in that favourable atmosphere, I looked at the manuscript of Bhajana-rahasya to edit it, I became astonished and could not believe that I had actually spoken it. I felt sure that Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura Mahasaya himself had inspired me to speak this commentary. To compile the manuscript, daughter Savita had also meticulously searched through many authoritative books on raganuga-bhakti, thus further enriching the Bhajana-rahasya-vrtti commentary.
The guardian of the Sri Gaudiya Sampradaya and the founder of Sri Gaudiya Vedanta Samiti, my most worshipful gurudeva, acarya-kesari astottara-sata Sri Srimad Bhakti Prajnana Kesava Gosvami Maharaja, used to mercifully encourage and inspire me, his servant, to publish Hindi editions of the books of Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura Mahasaya. Today, offering this book into his lotus hands, I feel unbounded joy. All glories unto him! All glories unto him!
The services and endeavours of daughter Kumari Savita in preparing the manuscript of this book, daughter Srimati Janaki-devi in helping her, Sri Om Prakasa Brijabasi "Sahitya-ratna", Srimati Vrnda-devi, Srimati Santi-devi, Sriman Purandara Dasa Brahmacari, Sriman Subhananda Brahmacari "Bhagavata-bhusana", Sriman Navina-krsna Brahmacari "Vidyalankara", Sriman Paramesvari Dasa Brahmacari and other who were involved in composing it on the computer, proofreading and performing other services, are all greatly praiseworthy and notable. My heartfelt prayer at the lotus feet of Sri Guru-Gauranga-Gandharvika-Giridhari is that They bestow an abundance of merciful blessings upon them.
I am confident that persons eagar for bhakti, and it particular Sadhakas of raganuga-bhakti who are eagerly desirous of vraja-rasa, will greatly honour this book, and that by studying it, faithful persons will attain the eligibility to enter the prema-dharma of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
Finally, may the condensed personification of Bhagavan's compassion, my most worshipful Sri Guru-pada-padma, shower me with profuse mercy so that I may attain the eligibility to fulfil his inner-most desire. This is my submissive prayer at his crimson lotus feet.
In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura emerged as the most prominent emissary and guardian of the supramundane mission and teachings of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. The indebted Gaudiya Vaisnava community referred to him as the Seventh Gosvami, thus recognizing his contribution to be on par with that of the exalted Six Gosvamis of Vrndavana. For the benefit of the souls in this material world, he authored more than one hundred books on the science o devotional service.
In this Sri Bhajana-rahasya he presents an astounding analysis of the Hare Krsna mantra based on the eight verses of Sriman Mahaprabhu's Siksastaka. Supporting this presentation by referencing abundant quotes from Vedic literature, he guides the practitioner of bhakti through the successive stages to perfection, all the while revealing the meditation of one who has achieved that stage.
An eminent disciple of the illustrious lion-like acarya Sri Srimad Bhakti Prajnana Kesava Gosvami, Srila Narayana Maharaja is recognised as one of the most influential Vaisnava teacher of the modern era. A sannyasi for almost fifty years, he has traveled around the world fifteen times preaching Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's message of divine love. In both Hindi and English he has published dozens of books on the science of devotional service.
Srila Narayana Maharaja's insightful commentary on Sri Bhajana-rahasya will certainly be greatly welcomed by the Vaisnava community. Being the first commentary ever on this immaculate compilation of verses by Bhaktivinoda Thakura, his Bhajana-rahasya-vrtti guides the reader through all aspect of spiritual practice. In easily comprehensible language, it reveals the inner meaning of the Hare Krsna mantra and provides many confidential and illuminating explanations.
