Composed by Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura, the crown prince of illustrious teachers among the Gaudiya Vaisnava acaryas is the author of what is considered to be one of the greatest treasures of Vaisnavas. In this great book is a description of the nature of uttama bhakti, its divisions, saddhana bhakti, the stages in the development of prema, love, the angas of bhajana, offences committed in the performance of devotional service, sevaparadha, offences against the holy name, namaparadha, vaidhi and raganuga saddhana bhakti, prema bhakti, and bhakti rasa.
