3. Sri Radharaman Gita

A collection of ecstatic songs that have serenaded Shri Radharamanji for over a century, Sri Radharaman Gita lovingly portrays Shri Radharaman’s daily life (Nitya Lila) from morning to night. Also richly described are the glorious festivals which He enjoys throughout the year (Naimittik Lila), as well as the story of His appearance, based on the poetic account of one of the Temple’s most celebrated Acharyas. Included are the original Brajbhasha songs, with Roman transliteration and prose translations into English.

4. Spiritual Ink

Spiritual Ink is a poetic offering of Vaisnavacharya Chandan Goswami and Radhika Goswami, to their beloved Shri Radharaman. It is almost impossible to capture in words what one feels on the journey to sacred love but a humble attempt has been made by the authors to share the heart’s innermost experience of devotion and its eternal relationship with the Divine.

"I set sail, drifting away from the worldly shores. My love-struck heart, desperately in search of its Beloved, cut all existing bonds to find its only means of existence. In a moment of intense remembrance and insatiable longing, my solitary tears came to rescue my fall and offered themselves as my spiritual ink."
