Gopi Gita Appreciation part 1, The Monk’s Podcast 159 with Madhavananda Prabhu and Amarendra Prabhu

Dear Friends,

For the last several days, I’ve been listening with deep gratitude to a most illuminating discussion on The Monk’s Podcast in six separate episodes.

Dear friends of ours, Chaitanya Caran, Madhavananda, and Armarendra Prabhus have been discussing The Gopi Gita, the songs of Lord Krsna’s Vrndavan gopis from the Srimad Bhagavatam Tenth Canto Chapter Thirty One.

In this chapter of Srimad Bhagavatam, the gopis are crying out to Krsna in a mood of separation. This is one of the most sacred canons of our Caitanya Vaisnava literature. Hearing this sacred chapter discussed by these three deeply learned devotees has been such an uplifting joy for me.  To listen, please click on this link or on the YouTube image below.

I just wanted to share this treasure with all of you as well. These are very high topics being presented by devotees who are steeped in deep realizations along with the brilliant commentaries of our previous acaryas (great teachers).

Please drink deeply of this sweetest nectar- the songs of the gopis sung in the mood of separation and unpacked for us by those with profound devotional understanding.

All the best,
Rukmini Walker
