Sri Sri Upadesamrta
“Sri Upadesamrta was given to us by Sriman Mahaprabhu through Srila Rupa Goswami. We shall be very cautious about the details of all these things. … A comparative study of the transcendental world is shown to us in Upadesamrta. … So, we must properly adjust ourselves accordingly with this aspiration, ‘May our fortune direct us to move on and on towards Krsna consciousness: from deep to deeper to the deepest.’ … The eleven verses in this Upadesamrta are very important and very, very useful for practical and personal realisation.”
—Srila Sridhar Maharaj
On the bank of the ocean, within the divine domain of Lord Jagannath, amidst His beloved associates during the final days of His manifest presence, the ocean of mercy Sri Gaurahari gently spoke His essential teachings for the highest benefit of all living beings in the form of His Siksastakam. Srila Rupa Goswami imbibed this nectar in full, understood it perfectly, and revealed its purport in the form of Sri Sri Upadesamrta.
